Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Electrical and Electronics Engineering

Quest for scientific knowledge, learning new technologies, performing cutting edge research in engineering requires high quality graduate education. Turkish industry’s growing interest to compete with technologically advanced industries worldwide has increased the demand for skilled engineers who can develop and manage new technologies. Recognizing this need our M.S. program is established to prepare the future engineering leaders who can acquire, synthesize and apply interdisciplinary scientific knowledge to expand the technological foundations of their professions, to better serve the needs of the nation and improve the quality of life in general. The M. S. program is designed to foster applied engineering research in selected critical areas, which can stimulate innovative technologies, and have a beneficial impact on the Turkish industry and economy at large.

These programs are two-year programs with thesis and the medium of instruction is English. The potential opportunities for graduates of these programs diverse and include:

  • employment in private and government organizations where they can provide the necessary technical expertise and leadership for development, application and management of technology,
  • starting new business ventures in technology innovation and commercialization,
  • continuing their graduate experience with the best Ph.D. programs worldwide.


All MS with thesis and PhD students are admitted with full scholarship, which includes tuition waiver, stipend, and offered a furnished room in a shared apartment. These students are also required to perform Teaching Assistant Duties


Tution for Non-Thesis M.Sc. Program
