Qualification Awarded

This program is a first cycle (undergraduate) program of 240 ECTS credits in the area of Industrial and Systems Engineering.

Students who complete the program successfully and acquire the program competencies receive an undergraduate degree in the area of Industrial and Systems Engineering.

Admission Requirements

In line with the academic and legal procedures of the university, the students who apply for admission into the program should follow the process governed by ÖSYM and succeed in the university entrance examination.  Students who have started an equivalent programme in Turkey or abroad may apply for transfer to the program.  Application of the student is evaluated before the semester starts considering the credentials of the student and the degree for which s/he is applying.  Detailed information regarding admission to the university is available in the university catalogue.

Students, who come to the university from abroad through exchange programmes whose conditions have been drawn by an agreement and approved by the university may take the courses offered in the programme.  To take a course, the student should demonstrate that s/he has completed its prerequisite courses or their equivalents.  All courses in the programme curriculum are conducted in English.

Occupational Profiles of Graduates

Our graduates are employed in a variety of sectors including information technology, logistics, production, finance, consulting and defence and hold positions such as Technical Support Engineer, Business Development Engineer, Planning Engineer, Production Planning Engineer, System Administrator, Project Manager, Financial Analyst, Product Development Analyst, Logistics Manager, Control Engineer, Software Engineer, Project Leader, Process Improvement Engineer, Strategist, ERP Consultant, Financial Portfolio Manager.  Meanwhile,  many of our graduates continue their education at the graduate level and receive Masters and Doctorate degrees in the area of Industrial and Systems Engineering and related fields.

Access to Further Studies

The graduates holding “Bachelor of Science Degree” are eligible to apply to “Master of Science Degree” and “Doctor of Philosophy Degree” programs at national or international levels either in the same or in the related disciplines.

Graduation Requirements

In order to graduate from the programme, a student is required complete a total of 49 courses including 43 compulsory, 1 free elective and 5 technical elective courses to receive a total of 147 credits and 240 ECTS and obtain a CGPA of at least 2.00/4.00.  The list of courses in the curriculum are provided in the table below.  Among these courses, ISE492 Graduation Project allows the student to apply the knowledge they have acquired during the program to a real-life engineering project. Moreover, each student is required to work as an intern for an institution that has been approved by the department for a total of 20 working days.  This compulsory internship is listed with a course code of ISE 400 in the table below.

Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading

Performance of students are assessed based on their work during the semester (midterm exams, quizzes, projects, lab work, etc.) and their grade in the final exam, which is administered during an examination period following the 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 provided 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 “DD” or higher. The letter grade “F”  indicates an unsuccessful completion of the course, therefore students who receive an “F” from a course do not earn any credits for that course.
