Qualification Awarded

An M.Sc. degree (second cycle) in Industrial and Systems Engineering is given to those who have successfully completed 132 ECTS credit and fully complied with program qualifications.

Admission Requirements

To apply for a Master’s program, a Bachelor’s degree must be held or expected to be held by the end of the term of application. Applications should be made to Institute of Science and Engineering within the dates announced by the institute. For the required documents, application dates, required forms check the website of Institute of Science and Engineering.

Occupational Profiles of Graduates and Access to Further Studies

Students having M.Sc. degree gain proficiency in their field and can work in a wide work spectrum. Our graduates currently work in positions as technical support engineer, business development engineer, production planning manager, systems manager, financial analyst, production development analyst, logistics manager, control engineer, software engineer, project leader, process development manager, strategist, EPR consultant, portfolio manager in IT, logistics, production, finance, consultancy and  defense industries. In addition, our graduates have an opportunity to work in public organizations as expert, controller and inspector.

Graduates holding and M.Sc. degree are eligible to apply to Ph.D. degree” programs at national or international levels either in the same or in the related disciplines.

Graduation Requirements

Industrial and Systems Engineering M.Sc.Program is composed of 72 ECTS course work and 60 ECTS   graduate thesis. A student must successfully complete the followings:

  • Three compulsory courses (ESYE 501, ESYE 505, and one of ESYE 522 or ESYE 552) with a total of 30 ECTS,
  • Four elective courses with a minimum total of 40 ECTS,
  • Complete the requirements of seminar course ESYE 590 with 2 ECTS,
  • Prepare a graduate thesis with 60 ECTS and defend it successfully.
  • Have a minimum average (CGPA) of 3.00.

Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading

Performance of students is evaluated based on his/her work during the semester (midterm exams, quizzes, projects, lab work, etc.) and his/her grade in the final exam at the end of the each semester. The total weight of the graded work within the semester should be between 40% and 70% of the overall grade.  At the end of the semester, the professor who teaches the course assigns each student a letter grade based on the overall performance of the student.  The letter grades and the corresponding numeric values are given below:

Letter Grade Value
AA 4.00
BA 3.50
BB 3.00
CB 2.50
CC 2.00
DC 1.50
DD 1.00
F 0

In order to pass a course, a student should receive a grade “CC” or higher. The letter grade “F”  indicates an unsuccessfull completion of the course, therefore students who receive an “F” from a course do not earn any credits for that course.
