Electrical and Electronics Engineering
The objective of the Bachelor of Science in Electrical-Electronics Engineering Program at MEF University is to educate its graduates to become among the most sought after electrical and electronics engineers in the global market place, the most wanted graduate students, or thriving entrepreneurs. This will be achieved by preparing them with a strong foundation in basic sciences and computing along with a broad knowledge of electrical and electronics engineering discipline to identify and solve novel engineering problems including planning, design, and implementation of processes leading to demonstrate products. The graduates will be specialized in a selected area or cover a larger selection of topics extending to interdisciplinary fields with practical experience, excellent communication skills and a keen understanding of business.
Electrical and Electronics Engineering Program at MEF University is designed to give a solid foundation in electrical and electronics engineering supported by mathematics, natural sciences, social sciences and engineering background in general.
The Electrical and Electronics Engineering program combines electrical, electronics, telecommunications and control courses. The compulsory courses such as digital system design, microprocessors, signals and systems, microelectronics circuits and systems, digital signal processing are coupled with laboratories to provide students with hands-on experiences on electronics and telecommunication systems. The program also provides a number of compulsory computer courses such as computer programming, computing for EE and object-oriented programming, as well as a number of elective courses such as VLSI design, sensor networks, computer networks, digital design with FPGA and sensor networks.
The program includes advanced mathematics for engineering, physics, probability, statistics, electromagnetic fields, digital signal processing as compulsory courses to provide students with a strong theoretical foundation. In addition to these compulsory courses, the program provides a large number of elective courses including communication theory, digital electronics, digital design with FPGA, image and video processing, computer networks, digital speech processing, wireless communication, VLSI design, microwave design, and embedded systems. Students may select at least three power engineering electives to gain eligibility for independent consultancy engineering services (S.M.M.).
The program emphasizes the importance of personal and professional ethics, business and management leadership. The summer practice or internship during sophomore and junior years will give students the chance to familiarize them with electrical and electronics engineering applications and working conditions after graduation.
The program has been prepared to satisfy ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) and ENAEE (European Network for Accreditation of Engineering Education) criteria.
The graduates of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Program are involved in a wide variety of technology ranging from huge global positioning systems which can pinpoint the location of a moving vehicle to gigantic electrical power generators. These engineers are responsible for designing, developing, testing as well as supervising the production of electrical and electronic equipment and machinery. Broadcast and telecommunication systems, electric motors, controls of machinery, lights and wiring in building complexes, vehicles, aircraft, radar and navigation systems, power generation, control and transmission devices which are used by electric utilities are all examples of equipment built by these engineers.
The graduates of the Electrical Engineering Program have the opportunity to select jobs from a variety of companies in Turkey and abroad as there is a great demand for well-educated EE. Telecommunication companies such as Turkcell, Avea, Vodafone, and Netas, consumer electronics companies such as Arçelik, Vestel employ a large number of graduates each year. Our graduates may prefer to pursue an academic track at MEF, or other universities and research laboratories in Turkey or abroad. MEF University encourages and supports her graduates to start-up their own companies as well. Graduates have the chance to join well-funded research projects in Turkey, Europe, and the US, as the number of ICT projects is gradually increasing in the world.

Course Plan and Prerequisites
Undergraduate Course List
All electrical and electronics engineering students must work as an intern in order to understand the professional work environments, application of the knowledge gained in school to practice and gain access to such environments. Out of the two summer practice, every 20 workdays, first shall be completed at the end of the sophomore (2nd) year and the second at the end of the junior (3rd) year.
How to Apply?
Applicants need to be graduates of high school equivalent to Turkish high schools, or in the last year of such a high school. Applicants who have not yet received their high school diploma may only get a conditional acceptance.
Prospective students may apply with an acceptable high school diploma (those in the last year of high school, with their transcript), international diploma (such as IB, Abitur etc), national high school exit/university entrance examination score, or with an international university entrance examination score (such as SAT, GCE, ACT). The full list of acceptable diplomas/examination and their minimum scores are available on the university’s website.
Applicants should complete the online application form. Applicants need to attach the following documents:
Copy of the identity information page of their passport
Passport style (portrait) photograph
High school diploma (if available)
High school transcript
Any recognized high school exit/university entrance examination score result, if available
Proof of English proficiency, if available
Statement of motivation
MEF University is an English medium university. All programs apart from Law are 100% in English. The Law program is 30% in English.
Students need to demonstrate their English proficiency before beginning in academic programs. The level of English proficiency required is equivalent to TOEFL iBT 80. Only internationally or nationally recognized examinations are accepted as proof of proficiency. The recognized examinations and their equivalences are as follows:
TOEFL iBT: 80
P.T.E. Academic: 67, CAE: C, CPE: C
