The new global business era of borderless business relations demands a new set of engineering competencies. Okan University Mechanical Engineering Undergraduate Program, having revised its programs accordingly, offers a rich selection of concentration areas in order to meet the unique career needs of our students. Our world-class faculty members from diverse backgrounds provide a balance of theory and practice in the execution of the curriculum.
We place great emphasis on developing “learning to learn” skills of our students to equip them with the ability to stay competitive in their careers. Strategic, innovative, systems and critical thinking schemes are essential components of our curriculum, providing broad managerial competencies as well as the required tools, techniques and resources for our students to succeed in the global world of engineering and related business. Engineering is the art of applying the knowledge of science for the benefit of humanity. Mechanical Engineering is the most broadly based area of engineering. It includes the science and art of the formulation, design, analysis, development, manufacturing, and control of the systems and machines. Central to the profession is the importance of innovation and of creating new technologies and products. The mission of the undergraduate curriculum is to prepare its graduates to meet the challenges associated with their particular career paths and to adapt to the rapidly changing technologies. The curriculum includes a variety of courses covering subjects in the Thermal and Fluid Sciences, Materials Sciences, Design and Production, Theory of Machines and Control Systems, as well as intensive design and laboratory works. The curriculum is structured to provide the students with technical skills, engineering insights, and problem-solving abilities, and to prepare its graduates as educated, responsible, environmentally sensible citizens. In addition to teaching, the Departments’ faculties are actively involved in research sponsored by the public and private sectors.
The graduates of the program will be endowed with a profound understanding of the mechanical as an engineering system as a whole. These graduates, having gone through an additional and focused training, are likely to occupy key positions in the industry in the long term.
We would like our students to consider Okan University Mechanical Engineering Undergraduate Program as an investment to gain a competitive professional edge and enjoy a successful career life. Our evening and weekend classes are designed to facilitate time management of a professional life combined with graduate education
