MEF University Industrial Engineering B.Sc. Program is designed to cover the latest topics in Industrial Engineering. Our students are aimed to be equipped with technically superior knowledge and experience. Since the program aims to produce globally competitive graduates not only for the demand by the production and service sectors but also for starting and developing new business, students will be well informed of the related sectors and establishing new business; for this purpose, the program contains both compulsory and elective courses not only in the field of decision making, entrepreneurship, and industrial applications but also in business. In our program, new topics associated with the service sector are given more emphasis rather than the classical subjects related to the production sector. In this context, students are provided with depth in the fields of Manufacturing and Service Management, Finance, Supply Chain Management, and Decision Support Systems starting from the second year undergraduate level by means of various elective courses. Parallel to the general trend of increasing popularity, elective courses are offered in areas such as Lean Manufacturing and Service Systems, Optimization Models in Finance, Supply Chain Modeling and Data Mining.
The program has been prepared to satisfy ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) and ENAEE (European Network for Accreditation of Engineering Education) criteria.
A significant portion of the graduates of the program are expected to be employed in the sectors of financial services, retail services, logistics and transportation, health services, tourism, intellectual services (consulting, research & development, communications and information technology, education), creative industries (advertising, design, publishing, etc.) and public services (government and non-governmental organizations). Many of our graduates are expected to choose to continue their education at the graduate level.

- TOEFL iBT: 80
- P.T.E. Academic: 67, CAE: C, CPE: C
- U.D.S., K.P.D.S., Y.D.S. (Turkish governmental examinations): 65
Applicants, who do not have acceptable proof of English proficiency at the time of application or university enrollment, sit the MEF University English Language Placement and Proficiency Examination. Students who do not pass the Proficiency Examination will need to study in the MEF University English Language Preparatory Program until they meet the required level.
Applicants to the Law program who are not native Turkish speakers or graduates of Turkish medium high school are required to present proof of Turkish language proficiency (TÖMER C).
- The acceptance decisions are given to the applicants meeting the application criteria based on the relative merit of applications. Applicants are informed about their acceptance decision and a scholarship offer and asked to confirm their intention to enroll with a payment of a deposit of USD 250 on the university’s bank account. The deposit is counted towards the first semester’s tuition fee but is non-refundable in case of non-enrolment. After payment of the deposit, an official letter of acceptance is issued.
