OzU engineering students are expected to build a strong foundation and a wide knowledge of engineering through our modern technology curriculum. They gain expertise with intense laboratory work. They obtain a keen awareness of the trends and needs of local and global businesses through close interaction with the industry. Through our sectoral solutions, guided internships and directed project programs, they develop a thorough understanding of the business aspects of engineering.
The graduate students, their research groups and the active laboratories that they are working will inspirit the research at Özyeğin University. The research will yield to scientific papers in technical journals, conference proceedings, patents and even to new high- technology engineering companies. The graduates will contribute to modern sciences, industry applications, our country's priority development areas, the national economy and the business world.
Özyeğin University is a research university. With this challenge, Faculty of Engineering is motivated to conduct research which is relevant to real life, beneficial to the humankind and that increases the quality of our daily lives and it prioritises the process of discovery and creation of new knowledge. It nurtures the freedom of its members to discover, debate and disseminate knowledge that form the ingredients for conducting cutting-edge research. We strive to provide impact to the increasingly changing world with the results of our research.
To ensure the results of the outstanding research at ÖzÜ are successfully transferred outside the University to drive national economic growth and benefit the general public has significance. Therfore Faculty of Engineering works closely with ÖzÜ Technology Transfer Office and Center for Entrepreneurship.
