Program Description

BSc in Department of Energy Systems Engineering

Energy is one of the major problems of the world and of our country since the energy resources are limited and fossil resources which are used widely cause air pollution and so they are considered as the main factor of the global warming and the climate change. Energy problem in our country is much more important because we are dependent upon the foreign primary energy resources and this dependency is increasing continuously. For these reasons, our university opened an undergraduate program on energy engineering under the faculty of engineering in 2009.

The objective of the program is to educate the students in the areas of the appropriate use of our own energy resources, researchers for new energy resources and usage, improvement of new systems and processes, application, energy efficiency and all the other related fields.

The language of the program is English. We have a preparatory school of one year for the students who don’t have enough language education. The first year in the curriculum is reserved for teaching the students the basic sciences (chemistry, physics, and mathematics) and computer-related courses together with English courses which are designed to improve the student’s comprehension and communication skills. In the second year, the student’s are introduced to engineering courses that give the background necessary to energy engineering and also Turkish courses. In the third and the fourth year, the courses are well designed so that the students will fulfill the requirements of energy engineering and also gain expertise in the area of energy engineering according to their desires through the technical electives offered. The program has also offered courses on Principles of Atatürk & History of Turkish Revolution in the third year.

The program is enriched by the non-technical electives that provide the students with the flexibility to pursue different interests in the social sciences and humanities. The design project that spans the entire senior year, involves the students in an independent research which includes literature survey, problem formulation, design and development of a system, preparing a report and presenting their activities. Most of the courses have the advantage of application in the laboratories.
Energy engineering is an interdisciplinary engineering branch.
