BSc in Computer Science and Engineering

General

Program Description

The fundamental tenet of computer science and engineering is to employ this infinitely malleable building block, the computer, in building not just systems employing a combination of hardware and software for bringing solutions to real-world problems but also in imagining the yet unimaginable and in inventing the future.

The undergraduate Computer Science and Engineering program (CS) offers a state-of-the-art curriculum supported by modern computational facilities linked to the external world via the Internet. Students are encouraged to build their programs of study within the discipline and to familiarize themselves with at least one of the other FENS programs through relevant electives. Similarly, students in other programs are encouraged to take courses from Computer Science and Engineering in order to master the computational tools of their trade. Opportunities for employment after graduation are extremely high, given that every industry and business has to keep up with the rapidly changing computing and communication facilities offered and demanded by the global market.

With science, technology, and social structures advancing day by day, the world needs more qualified individuals who possess the knowledge and skills required to pursue a career anywhere in the world. Aware of this pressing issue, in 1994 the Sabancı Group decided to establish a "world university" led by the Sabancı Foundation. The seeds of Sabancı University, the Sabancı Group's most comprehensive social responsibility project in the field of education, were sown in the summer of 1995, at a search conference. Right now, Sabancı University is the highest ranked Turkish university in THE World University rankings and only one of the two Turkish universities that rank in the top 500. Sabancı Holding is a strategic portfolio company that focuses on creating value add with the Group’s ecosystem and prioritizes a high-performance culture. Sabancı Group companies currently operate in 12 countries. Sabancı Group has 70 companies and 60.000 employees. These enterprises collectively have also contributed significantly to the development of Turkey’s economy. Sabancı Holding’s own shares, as well as the shares of its 11 subsidiaries, are listed on Borsa Istanbul (BIST) and constitute 8.1% of total market capitalization of Turkish equity market. Read less
