Middle East Technical University Northern Cyprus Campus

Introduction

Choosing a university is a major decision that will have permanent consequences throughout your lifetime. Our prestigious METU Diploma, being a major gateway both for a professional career and/or graduate studies in major world universities, will definitely have an important impact on your life and future career. We are humbled to share that METU / ODTÜ has attained yet another remarkable achievement in university rankings. UK based QS World University Rankings by Subject have recently announced the World University Rankings by Subject 2015 where METU / ODTÜ is among TOP 100 in most of Engineering Subjects. Thus, METU / ODTÜ is the first and only Turkish university ranked among the top 100 universities.

Since its establishment in Ankara in 1956, the university had over the years trained thousands of international students in addition to its one hundred thousand national alumni. In 2005 METU has established a new campus in Northern Cyprus under the name Middle East Technical University Northern Cyprus Campus (METU NCC) with a more focused international mission.

METU Northern Cyprus Campus is attached to the main campus in Ankara in all academic and administrative affairs. All degree programs of METU NCC are approved by the METU Senate, and provide the same quality standards of the main campus in Ankara.

The medium of instruction at both METU campuses is English and the credit-hour system is employed. Academic Year commences in September and consists of two semesters ending in mid-June, plus an optional Summer Session. Students are admitted to both Fall and Spring semesters.

Duration of undergraduate study is four academic years (eight semesters) for all undergraduate degree programs and two years (four semesters) for master programs.

Tuition fee waiver scholarships are offered to successful applicants for undergraduate programs applying with results/scores considerably higher than minimum required for application, cover 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% of the tuition.

As for Master programs applicants: there are two basic forms of financial support that METU NCC is able to offer its graduate students; first are Scholarships (which partially or wholly cover tuition fees); and second is Assistantships (which provide wages for assistantship work and/or some additional benefits.

Being a state university, the cost of education – even for international students- is subsidized; therefore the tuition is highly cost-effective and competitive.

METU NCC campus is located approximately 50 km west of Lefkoşa (Nicosia), and is built on a magnificent hill with an area of 339 hectares (137 acres). In addition to its state-of-the-art education and lab facilities, METU NCC offers all the amenities of high-tech information services, such as digital library, widespread access to computing, high-speed internet and cable TV. Indoor and outdoor sports facilities, the Cultural and Convention Center, cafeteria, and shopping area provide a pleasing range of social, cultural and sports facilities to the staff and students.

Bachelor of Engineering in Aerospace Engineering Aerospace Engineering is a field of engineering concerned with the design, manufacturing, testing and performance evaluation of air and space craft for atmospheric or orbital flight; such as the airplanes, helicopters, missiles, rockets and satellites. Aerospace engineers apply the principles of science and technology to create both air and space vehicles and systems. They do research and development work to create novel air and space craft by designing their detailed schematics and keep records of their performance for future reference and test and validate the designed prototypes to make sure that they function according to their design. Aerospace Engineering program allows the students to get specialized in four major fields of study related to “Air and Space Systems”: Aerodynamics: the engineering discipline dealing with the interaction between the flying systems and the fluid in which they are moving. Structure: the engineering discipline which studies the science of forces and moments acting on the aircraft and spacecraft. Propulsion: the engineering discipline dealing with the study of generation of the required thrust/propulsion to move the vehicle in question either in the air or in outer space. Control: the engineering discipline dealing with the control and stability of the flying system while perfoming a defined mission in a controlled manner. In a way, understanding the system behavior/response due to various control input Aerospace Engineering Program is therefore multi-disciplinary in nature and is very closely related to the disciplines of Mechanical, Electrical and Computer Engineering.

[+]

BSc in Political Science and International Relations METU NCC is amongst a distinctive and select number of world universities which brings together the study of Political Science on the one hand and International Relations on the other hand in a combined and systematic programme of study. The aim of the Bachelor of Science degree programme in Political Science and International Relations is to encourage and allow students to acquire the analytical skills to examine critically the organisation and expressions of political power, social power, economic power and cultural power that is, power in all its human expressions. Where Political Science was traditionally concerned with the study of power within states and International Relations was traditionally concerned with the study of power between states, here in the PSIR programme at METU NCC we are concerned with examining the totality of these expressions of power. To that end, not only will undergraduate students be offered foundational courses in Political Science and International Relations thereby anchoring their knowledge in both traditions of enquiry but they will be encouraged to examine and explain the development of more complex expressions of global power. Thus their primary concern will be the interaction between domestic politics, state behaviour and the international system and international society, and the issues these raise for the future of international relations in a world of changing economies, social structures, technologies, environments and ideologies. It is the aim of this programme, therefore, to provide students with a thorough knowledge of the processes and... [-]
