Student Affairs

Office of the Dean of Student Affairs seeks to serve the needs of the undergraduate and associate degree students at Beykent University. Office of the Dean of Student Affairs operates at our Ayazağa Campus where our undergraduate students receive education. There is an office at Beylikdüzü Campus where our associate degree students receive education subordinating to the main office.

Office of the Dean of Student Affairs conduct operations by implementing applicable regulations in order to respond and promote the needs of the students. These operations are as follow: Registration, re-registration, enrollment, drop-out, break off, suspend registration, granted leave of absence, orientation, undergraduate transfers of both in-house and outward students, vertical transfers, minor and double major degree programs, student certificate, transcription, student identity card, pass card etc.

Our students are strongly recommended to follow Academic Calendar. Academic Calendar displays the calls and deadlines of the operations that our students must complete every year.

Yet another important issue is that our students should update their communication information on a regular basis. All kinds of notifications to the students are carried out via telephone and address details which we obtain from students during the registration. In case of any alterations in these details, students need to update their communication information in one of the Students Affairs offices situated at our campuses.

Bachelor in Architecture

Campus Full time 4 years September 2017 Turkey İstanbul

Architecture is accepted as an art which pursues efficacy; as an applied science and technology; and as a profession which aims to achieve high quality of life by designing and constructing artificial environments. [+]

Bachelor in Architecture DEPARTMENT OF ARCHITECTURE Architecture is accepted as an art which pursues efficacy; as an applied science and technology; and as a profession which aims to achieve high quality of life by designing and constructing artificial environments. In accordance with all these definitions the architectural education is structured on necessary theoretical and practice based courses and architectural design studios. The Architectural Education is four years. In this period, the compulsory courses are introduced in terms of understanding of the architectural concepts, perceiving and criticizing the space, and being informed about design principles, history of architecture, environment, structure and construction, and construction technologies. The architectural design studios, which bring the history–culture–theory knowledge together, aim to enable the students to create their own architectural designs which are innovative and can be realized. The theory and practice based two working drawing studios give an opportunity to combine structure–construction–technology–environment knowledge. At the same time to develop the artistic and technical skills of the students hand drawing and computer courses are placed in the education programme. In the computer based courses various architectural presentation and drawing programmes are intensively taught. Apart from the compulsory courses, five elective courses are placed in the education programme. Besides this, students are encouraged to take some elective courses from other departments to enrich their knowledge and understanding of interdisciplinary relationships. The Department offers a dynamic atmosphere by some exchange programmes such as ERASMUS, and domestic and international study trips. Total sixty days (30 days architectural office and 30 days construction site) summer practice and an independent graduation project at final term of fourth year are required to complete the architectural education.

Bachelor in Civil Engineering DEPARTMENT OF CIVIL ENGINEERING Construction industry having showed an enormous development in the last two decades by overcoming the crisis in 2001, has successfully continued in its advancement. Well equipped, endowed with knowledge of the latest technology, bilingual, even trilingual civil engineers are highly required to take place in projects financed by foreign enterprisers in both national and international markets. Particularly, in order to build multifunctional complex constructions in a very short time with low-cost and international standard quality there is a need for modifying control systems, quality management systems, modelling and planning construction projects within a computer adaptive application. Such systems require qualitative computer skills (CAD, CAM), enriched with knowledge of technology governance and structural mechanics, as well as a foreign language, English in particular. Hence, each passing day there is a vast need for civil engineers endowed with solid knowledge of information technology, computer-aided design, technology governance and application, as well a foreign language. Besides, in order to make the existing building stock earthquake resistant, within the next 25 years, %90 of the buildings need to be either reinforced or renewed, especially those in Istanbul. Consequently, this fact could be used as a proof for the inevitable necessity of civil engineers in the sense that we have already described. Beykent University, by the help of the present information and computer systems and a solid infrastructure, newly built modern Ayazağa Campus and its prominent and highly experienced academic staff in Architecture, Interior Design and Computer Engineering, particularly in the fields of information technology and computer-aided design, as well as the planning of building new laboratories within the campus domain, aims at educating civil engineers meeting the aforementioned standards. The period of studying Civil Engineering is four years and the number of credits that the students are expected to complete is 166. Besides, students should work as an intern at least 60 business days. The language of instruction of the Department of Civil Engineering is Turkish. English Prep School is optional. Asst.
