Istanbul Technical University (ITU)

  • Description
  • A Pio­neer Through the Ages

    Istan­bul Tech­ni­cal Uni­ver­sity (ITU) was estab­lished in 1773, dur­ing the time of the Ottoman Sul­tan Mustafa III. under its orig­i­nal name “Muhendishane-​i Bahr-​i Humayun”. Since then ITU con­tin­ued and devel­oped its higher edu­ca­tion in var­i­ous forms.

    In 1946, ITU became an autonomous uni­ver­sity, includ­ing the Fac­ul­ties of Civil Engi­neer­ing, Archi­tec­ture, Mechan­i­cal Engi­neer­ing, and Elec­tri­cal Engi­neer­ing. ITU is a state uni­ver­sity which defines and con­tin­ues to update meth­ods of engi­neer­ing and archi­tec­ture in Turkey. It pro­vides its stu­dents with inno­v­a­tive edu­ca­tional facil­i­ties while retain­ing tra­di­tional val­ues, as well as using its strong inter­na­tional con­tacts to mould young, tal­ented indi­vid­u­als who can com­pete not only within their coun­try bor­ders but also in the global arena.

    With its edu­ca­tional facil­i­ties, social life and strong insti­tu­tional con­tacts, ITU has always been pre­ferred by Turkey’s most dis­tin­guished stu­dents since its foun­da­tion and has achieved jus­ti­fied respect.

    Vision & Mission

    The vision of Istan­bul Tech­ni­cal Uni­ver­sity is always in devel­op­ment as ITU is a world university.

    The mis­sion of Istan­bul Tech­ni­cal Uni­ver­sity as a research uni­ver­sity com­pet­ing in the inter­na­tional arena with­out being con­strained by the national bound­aries, is to con­tinue teach­ing, edu­ca­tion and R&D activ­i­ties as well as con­tribut­ing to the inter­na­tional knowl­edge by reach­ing the advanced knowl­edge rather than only improv­ing the qual­ity of teach­ing and research activities.

    The objec­tives of Istan­bul Tech­ni­cal Uni­ver­sity with regard to teach­ing and edu­ca­tion are:

    To train stu­dents who

    • Learn how to learn,
    • Speak Eng­lish fluently,
    • Act global with­out ignor­ing the local,
    • Pro­fi­cient in advanced technologies,
    • Have advanced research abilities,
    • Cre­ate the agenda instead of fol­low­ing the agenda,
    • Have strong social relationships,
    • Con­tribute to the well-​being of their coun­tries and humanity,
    • Have the inter­na­tional standards.
