BSc in Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical engineering covers the most fundamental basis of the areas with the most extensive range of subjects of the engineering branches. Mechanical Engineers master the development, design, production planning and control application of all kinds of mechanical systems, machines and machine components. Thus, mechanical engineers play a major role in of large projects, such as the construction of bridges, dams, factories, as well as in the production apparatus, such as a small car, etc, ranging from a wide area of manufacturing, where technology is required. Today, the working areas of mechanical engineers are continuously expanding with the appearance of new industries and with new developments in old industries and new developments in energy resources.
At the Mechanical Engineering Department of Atilim University has been started in order to enable undergraduate study in mechanical Engineering Fundamentals, to provide a research platform in advanced technology and technology transfer issues; active contribution in the areas of emerging issues of mechanical engineering and management; accurate, realistic and economic solutions in the framework of university-industry cooperation. The program has been set up in accordance with MÜDEK criteria with respect to mathematics, basic sciences, engineering sciences, design and elective courses. The program has been prepared to give to students the skills and knowledge needed for design and implementation of the mechanical systems and thermal systems. In the program, in general engineering and mechanical engineering related information given already in the first year for early familiarization of students to the profession. The program also gives particular attention to mechanical design. The most important feature of the program, that it is based on design and manufacturing. In this way, the rise and development of innovative ideas in the design and manufacturing technology, important for the country is aimed to encourage.
Mechanical engineer performs activities in the design, development, production, maintenance, repair and processing, as well as in the education, research and study of all mechanical systems and energy conversion systems. Therefore he has a very large work area. Mechanical engineers are required in factories, construction sites, power plants, research centers, the manufacturing industry, in the energy sector, in the chemical industry, in the construction sector, from all sectors of the defense industry to the pharmaceutical industry and have thus the opportunity to find a workplace in a great field. Today, the need for mechanical engineers continues to increase and supply lags behind demand. By taking into consideration that the emphasis will be on future-oriented areas of the R&D activities, the new industries and new developments in the old industry and new developments in energy resources, the demand for mechanical engineers will continue. Our graduates with strong curriculum profile in design, technology development and innovation will have excellent job opportunities in the private and public sector, in factories and other workplaces, in a large area, ranging from institutions and organizations involved in basic and applied research on high-tech subjects to industry.
