Shipbuilding and Ocean Engineering Department

Shipbuilding and Ocean Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET (Criteria: Ocean Engineering).



Continue the unique Shipbuilding and Ocean Engineering program in Turkey with emphasis on life-long learning and continuous development applied to education and research. This program aims to achieve an understanding of fundamentals of mathematics, science and engineering coupled with advanced skills to design, manufacture and use marine/offshore structures and systems using modern decision making and analysis methods.


Educational Objectives

The Educational Objectives of the Shipbuilding and Ocean Engineering Program are as follows:

1. to equip students with an ability to design all kinds of marine vehicles, coastal and offshore structures,

2. to provide students with a strong background in engineering fundamentals allowing lifelong learning, which will aid them in problem solving and decision-making,

3. to provide students with skills to handle conflict, work in teams with different backgrounds due to the diverse working areas, and care about the environment and other related contemporary issues,

4. to graduate students competent in written/oral presentation skills, and modern engineering tools,

5. to encourage our graduates for pursuing a career in academia, graduate studies and in research.
