MUGLA SITKI KOCMAN UNIVERSITY DEPARTMENT OF COMPUTER ENGINEERING
Founded in 2009, the Department of Computer Engineering will graduate its first students in 2014. Our faculty consists of 6 full time professors; and 40 students are accepted to the program annually. The department currently has 195 active students, 10 of which are international.
The Computer Engineering Department’s education language is English. Hence, students are expected to pass the English Proficiency Examination and if they fail to attend a year-long English pre-school. Official education period is eight semesters. The students who successfully complete a two-year of the undergraduates’ course of studies get the associate degree; and the students who successfully complete a four-year of the undergraduates’ course of studies (minimum 240 ECTS and a GPA of 2.00) get the undergraduate (BSc) degree. Our curriculum is compatible with European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) and is designed elective-rich in order to encourage our students to gain knowledge on various aspects of computer engineering and other scientific. The core Computer Engineering courses are supported with many homework assignments and projects in order to enhance the students` problem solving and implementation capabilities while strengthening theoretical background. We encourage use of open source software in our classes and encourage our student’s to gain familiarity with this philosophy.
Our students actively participate in the national (Farabi) and international student exchange programs (Erasmus and Mevlana). Between 2012 and 2014, 17 students benefitted from international exchange programs.
Muğla Sıtkı Koçman University Computer Engineering undergraduates have unlimited access (24/7) to two computing laboratories; one with 40 Linux-based and the other one with 40 Microsoft®Windows-based computers. These labs are designed to help students with their homework assignments and projects throughout their education. The laboratories are also equipped with wireless (eduroam) and wired connections to allow students to connect their personal portable devices.
Muğla Sıtkı Koçman University Computer Engineering Department have an active research program supported by university (e.g., BAP: Bilimsel Araştırma Proje programı) and government agencies (e.g. TUBITAK). Research projects span a broad range, from mobile applications, geographical information systems, bioinformatics, biostatistics, network and security, to natural language processing. Research activity is centered on a set of active laboratories that house computing and networking resources independent of the computing laboratories.
Our graduates have an opportunity to find a job in a wide range of sectors, such as music, finance, bioinformatics and defense. Since the official language of education is English, it provides advantage to the graduates.
