University of Marmara

  • Description
  • Mar­mara Uni­ver­sity with more than 3000 dis­tin­guished fac­ulty mem­bers and a stu­dent body reach­ing 60.000, located in sev­eral dif­fer­ent cam­puses scat­tered through­out the most impor­tant city of our coun­try, Istan­bul, fol­low­ing a great tra­di­tion has been one of the lead­ing insti­tu­tions of higher edu­ca­tion in Turkey for 124 years. Together with the Fac­ul­ties of Engi­neer­ing, Med­i­cine and Den­tistry where the medium of instruc­tion is in Turk­ish and Eng­lish, Mar­mara Uni­ver­sity also com­prises the Fac­ulty of Eco­nom­ics and Admin­is­tra­tive Sci­ences which pro­vides edu­ca­tion in four dif­fer­ent lan­guages: Turk­ish, Eng­lish, French and Ger­man, thus mak­ing Mar­mara Uni­ver­sity the only “multi-​lingual” uni­ver­sity in Turkey. Both the fac­ulty and the stu­dents com­pete in their par­tic­i­pa­tion and ded­i­ca­tion to aca­d­e­mic work to enhance the edu­ca­tional qual­ity and the effec­tive imple­men­ta­tion of sci­en­tific stud­ies in our university.

    The pri­mary mis­sion of Mar­mara Uni­ver­sity is not only to pro­vide up-​to-​date con­tem­po­rary edu­ca­tion to ful­fill the require­ments of today’s mod­ern soci­ety but also to pre­pare the stu­dents for the future through par­tic­i­pa­tory demo­c­ra­tic admin­is­tra­tion that is in accor­dance with Ataturk’s Prin­ci­ples and Reforms. In pur­suit of these goals, 2839 fac­ulty mem­bers are employed, includ­ing 558 pro­fes­sors, 234 asso­ciate pro­fes­sors, 569 assis­tant pro­fes­sors, 237 lec­tur­ers, 987 research assis­tants, 172 instruc­tors, 78 spe­cial­ists, and 3 trans­la­tors, 1 edu­ca­tion plan­ner along with 1354 admin­is­tra­tive per­son­nel work­ing at var­i­ous units. About 500 of our fac­ulty mem­bers also teach at other uni­ver­si­ties, thus shar­ing their knowl­edge and experience.

    As of the 2005 – 2006 aca­d­e­mic year, a count of 51.227 stu­dents, 2839 fac­ulty mem­bers and 1354 admin­is­tra­tive per­son­nel make Mar­mara Uni­ver­sity the third biggest uni­ver­sity in Turkey. Our uni­ver­sity, with its 13 fac­ul­ties, 9 voca­tional schools of higher edu­ca­tion, 11 insti­tutes, and 31 research cen­ters, is sit­u­ated in 13 dif­fer­ent loca­tions, most of which are on the Ana­to­lian side of Istanbul.

    Wel­com­ing inter­na­tional stu­dents as well as pro­vid­ing edu­ca­tion at inter­na­tional stan­dards in almost all fields, Mar­mara Uni­ver­sity, with its long and suc­cess­ful his­tory, has rapidly become a mod­ern and inter­na­tional uni­ver­sity which hosts and par­tic­i­pates in sci­en­tific meet­ings, cul­tural activ­i­ties, art and sports along with var­i­ous other national and inter­na­tional events. Our uni­ver­sity is one of the few Turk­ish uni­ver­si­ties, which is a mem­ber of the Euro­pean Uni­ver­sity Asso­ci­a­tion (EUA). The fac­ul­ties of Engi­neer­ing and Tech­ni­cal Edu­ca­tion are also car­ry­ing out their inter­na­tional stud­ies through ABET. The fac­ulty of Eco­nom­ics and Admin­is­tra­tive Sci­ences and the Insti­tute of Social Sci­ences are in the process of prepa­ra­tion for the qual­ity assess­ment car­ried out by EQUIS, an inter­na­tional sys­tem of accred­i­ta­tion in man­age­ment and busi­ness admin­is­tra­tion in Europe. The Insti­tute of Social Sci­ences is now an insti­tu­tional mem­ber of EFMD, Euro­pean Foun­da­tion for Man­age­ment Development.
