Bachelor of Architecture (BArch) in Architecture

Campus Full time 4 years September 2016 Turkey İzmir

The Faculty of Architecture has two departments, namely that of Architecture and İnterior Architecture and Environmental Design [+]

The Faculty of Architecture has two departments, namely that of Architecture and İnterior Architecture and Environmental Design. These have a total of 450 students comprising about 10% of the university student population. We aim at educating students who have a good knowledge of implementation and the construction market, good acquintance of contemporary materials and detailing and developed creative design capacity. With these in mind, we invite professionals of all kinds to participate in our education and actiivities. There are currently as many visiting lecturers as the permenant staff, but this is to decrease gradually down to 20-30 % in the future. By inviting professionals we aim at uniting theory with practice. In addition, at all times, between 10 to 20% of our academic staff is composed of foreign nationalities. Knowing that love of a profession is the key for success, each academic year we engage in many diverse social and academic activities. Some of these are carried from the local up to the national and international scale. The faculty desires to further develop it’s international relations and this is clearly stated among its development goals and objectives. The Faculty, in parallel to the aims of the University, also serves the city of İzmir and it’s region. We collaborate with several municipalities and government offices in preparing projects and research. These also help increase the experience of our staff and students. We are conscious that good professional knowledge does not suffice and that students will need entrepreneurial skills in order to succeed, when they face market realities in the future. The Faculty, therefore, spends considerable effort in educating its students in this direction. Evidently, all students need to have ability to use computers efficiently. Although a certain number of courses are given in our two departments, all cannot be taught for obvious reasons. We also wish that each one of our students develop his/her freehand drawing capacity. We realise that this slowly disappearing skill needs to be protected preciously and futher developed. Our staff- student relations are carefully managed so that each student feels at home when he or she is at the campus.... [-]

Bachelor of Engineering in Energy Systems Engineering

Campus Full time 4 years September 2016 Turkey İzmir

Energy is central to everything in nature, in society and even in the universe. The engineering of energy systems is a multi-disciplinary approach to the development of energy systems, from the design to the final product. The use of limited energy resources, the requirement for the management of energy efficiency and the increased usage of renewable energy sources (such as solar, bio-mass, hydraulic, wind and geothermal) means that there is also an increasing demand for well-trained experts in the field of energy systems engineering. In this context, the energy sector is constantly changing due to environmental constraints (such as fossil fuel and greenhouse gas emissions), increasing fuel prices, depletion of fossil fuels and the decreasing regulation and control of the energy market (natural gas and electricity). The academic discipline of energy systems engineering aims to address all of these issues. [+]

Bachelor of Engineering in Software Engineering

Campus Full time 4 years September 2016 Turkey İzmir

Software engineering is a branch of science for software development based on the principles of engineering [+]

Software engineering is a branch of science for software development based on the principles of engineering. While the use of computers in daily life increases, the importance of computer software is also increasing day by day. Software products provide more efficient and productive professional and social life. Our life styles are becoming increasingly dependent on computers and hence, software. Software development has been problematic since the first days of introduction of computers and is still facing big problems. Pressure on software development, such as, constantly growing size and complexity, shorter schedules, internalization, more functionality, competition, is also increasing. This raises the need of expertise to build economical, on time and quality software. The term “software engineering” was used at a NATO conference in 1968 for the first time, where, application of engineering principles to software development was proposed as a potential solution to problems of software development. Software engineering discipline is more than programming; it is about analysis, design, implementation and maintenance of high-quality software within planned time and budget. Our students are trained as highly-qualified professionals by our university’s academic experience in the field. Our curriculum includes courses about each stage of software development life cycle, as well as, principles of engineering and computer science. They are also offered a wide range of elective courses that help them specialize in the areas they aim. Our students also gain work experience through summer internships. Our graduates are employed in software development, communications, computer services companies, as well as, in the IT departments of various organizations.

As the Yaşar University Department of English Language and Literature, we are proud to play a role in the education and development of a new generation of young critical thinkers. We aim to equip our students with the analytic and linguistic skills that will not only open up a wide range of employment possibilities for our graduates but also enable them to play an active and critical role in society. Our students receive extensive instruction in English grammar, speaking skills and academic writing. Moreover, since they spend four years immersed in oral and written discussion and debate in English, they gain advanced proficiency in the use of language in an applied setting. The increasingly globalized nature of modern society demands experts who are not only competent in other languages but also literate in other cultures. Alongside the literature of the British Isles, students in the department have the opportunity to study other Anglophone cultures and to think critically about questions of cultural domination and autonomy in the context of the history of empire and decolonization. The culture and literature of the United States, the question of gender and literature and the connections between literary and visual culture are among fields that our students will have an opportunity to explore. With our diverse international faculty, we introduce students to a range of possible approaches to the study of literature, but at the core of our pedagogic strategy is the cultivation of close reading skills. In the first two years of our curriculum, students take a number of courses that focus on textual analysis (in fiction, poetry and drama), providing the foundation on which subsequent courses, with their comprehensive historical scope, will build. Emphasizing the development of the fundamental skills of literary interpretation over memorization of factual knowledge, we try from the very first moment that students set in the classroom at Yaşar University to inculcate the value of independent thought. The option of studying another discipline as a Second Major or Minor as well as the possibility of participating in international exchanges via the Erasmus Program and studying a wide range of other languages represent further opportunities for students independently to shape their intellectual development while registered in the Department. With the critical, analytic and linguistic skills cultivated by their studies, graduates from our department have a wide range of employment options open to them. Many of them will in turn become educators. Others will use their cultural skills in publishing, journalism and the media. Tourism, public relations, international business and communication are just a few of the other fields open to those who benefit from the comprehensive cultural and intellectual formation offered by our well-rounded curriculum.
