TOBB ETÜ Electrical and Electronics Engineering Program, founded in 2004 gave its first graduates in 2008. There are currently 11 faculties in the department. The faculty does research mostly in the areas of microelectronics, control, communications, signal processing, biomedicals, optics/photonics, and smart grid.
In order to qualify for the program, the student must pass or obtain an exemption from the English Preparatory Program (requires 61 from TOEFL IBT or 500 from TOEFL ITP). The first three terms of the program provide background in mathematics and basic science. Departmental courses start in the third semester. An academic year at TOBB ETÜ consists of three semesters (Fall, Spring, and Summer). After the fifth semester, the students take their first Cooperative Education. Cooperative Education (Coop) is a semester-long internship program with payment and insurance. After returning from their first Coop, students continue the programme in a one-term course - one term internship pattern until graduation. The program lasts for 11 semesters, three of which are for Coop semesters. In the last two course semesters, students have to take 4-5 departmental, 1-2 technical and one non-technical elective in order to gain deeper knowledge in the areas they desire. The program culminates in a Senior Design Project course, where the students apply their knowledge on an extensive project.
The purpose of the B.S. Program in Electrical and Electronics Engineering is to educate successful engineers that are capable of leadership and are strong in adapting to the ever-changing world. an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
