Our Philosophy

The founder of Kadir Has University, the late Mr. Kadir Has, dedicated his life to education. The founding of our institution grew out of his personal philosophy: "I will strive to do and be the best for my country." In keeping with this motto, our purpose is to facilitate the education, development, and prosperity of today’s youth by means of innovative research and academic teaching that inspires democratic thinking and practice. We believe that education can fortify our students, as it did earlier generations, to meet the tests of their own time. Our aim is to create an environment of education, research, and discussion at the level of the best universities in the world. Thus we offer education based on both traditional disciplines and interdisciplinary models; we foster the skills necessary for continuing social and cultural development; and, while helping students prepare for the future, we encourage their search for higher truths. The central tenet of Kadir Has University’s philosophy is to produce students who are self-confident, who question, who consider all perspectives and evaluate them without prejudice, and who are open to the winds of change. We want students to see that as successful scholars and fulfilled individuals, they are the leaders of our society.

Having accepted its first cohort of students in Fall 2013, Architecture is a small but steadily expanding department. While we aspire to match the academic standards of the best architectural schools across the globe and incorporate cutting-edge thinking in architectural pedagogy and practice, we also seek to install in our students, a strong sense of social engagement, environmental responsibility, and professional ethics.

***With a foundational belief in design as a “Critical Practice” that can generate “public good” in the world, we take issue with the increasing instrumentality and commodification of architectural knowledge, education, and production. We envision our graduates to be fully aware of the social, economic, political and cultural dynamics that shape the production of the built environment and to engage with them critically and innovatively in multiple scales from single buildings and construction details to large urban interventions. We pledge to educate the next generation of competent, creative and critical design professionals who can challenge the received conventions and fashionable trends of their discipline and are as interested in defining problems as they are in solving them....

In today’s world, molecular biology, biochemistry, and other biological fields are becoming increasingly information driven. Mainly the need of processing massive quantities of sequence information generated by recent developments in genome sequencing and proteome analysis has propelled these life sciences into a new era in which computer science, information technologies, and biology merged into a single discipline as bioinformatics. Accordingly, genetics in conjunction with bioinformatics have been changing the old view in clinical diagnostics. By comprehensive genetic testing, individuals who are more susceptible to disease can be identified before any disease even exists. This way early predictive measures can be taken. Moreover personalized drug design, to tailor a specialized treatment based on your genetic makeup, seems to be a standard way of disease treatment in the near future.... [-]
