Message from the Head of Department
Dear Students,

I would like to welcome to students who have joined us in the academic year of 2016-2017 and specifically point out that we are very happy to have them with us.

The Department of Bioengineering has been founded in 2013. The department is carrying out its departmental studies in providing graduate (BSc) program with the help of a team of experienced academic staff.

The graduates of Department of Bioengineering have the opportunity to be employed in all areas of biotechnology.
I would like to conclude by wishing you every success and renewing my greeting by saying welcome, again.

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Terin ADALI
Deputy Chairman of the Department of Bioengineering

The Background of Department of Bioengineering
The biotechnology is one of the most important concerns of our time. To develop the methods of biomanufacturing on food technologies, enviormental science, diagnosis and treatment of desease we need to use advanced technology.
The bioengineering has so far existed for more than 30 years and it is an integrated discipline combining the studies of engineering, basic sciences, biochemistry, material science, medicine, and biology..

The mission of the Department of Bioengineering is to train and graduate students in the field of bioengineering as qualified persons.

The department aims to train and graduate students who will be appreciated much and held in high esteems, and also raise students’ consciousness to follow the recent advances and to contribute to the field of bioengineering.

The vision of the Department of Bioengineering is to train students to become well-trained and knowledgeable specialists in theory and practice of bioengineering, and in related fields.

Opportunities are given to students to put their theory and practical knowledge into practice in real-life situations. One of the fundamental visions of the department is to study and investigate the biological events at engineering level to carry out research in molecular manufacturing differences, to make explorations and discoveries in this field of biotechnology and to publish these findings in highly regarded journals.

As the Department of Bioengineering aims to be a world-famous department in the bioengineering education and research, it is among our visions to provide undergraduate and postgraduate education and to encourage innovative research as well as providing the necessary service in bioengineering.

The Work Areas of Department of Bioengineering
The main employment areas of biomedical students are as follows:

  • Ministery of Agricalture.
  • In health institutions – such as state hospitals, private hospitals, and health clinics.
  • In government offices – such as Ministry of Health and health departments of municipalities.
  • In manufacturing firms – such as firms employing design engineers for biotechnological, medical products, quality control engineers, and so on.
  • In representative firms – such as support engineers and consultants in firms that sell biotechnology equipment.
  • In educational establishments – such as lecturers in universities and in colleges offering training on health issues.
