About Us

Foundation
The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering was founded by Prof. Dr. Şenol Bektaş, in 1990. The department started off with 25 students. Since the year of foundation, Theory of Circuit, Electronic, Electrical Measurement, Intelligent Circuits, Computer Applications, Physics and Chemistry laboratories have been established one after another and provided the students and lecturers with a fully equipped training environment. Today, the department has reached 499 students. By incorporating high-voltage, electro-mechanics, energy recycling, power electronic, preserving power systems, programmable intelligent controller telecommunication, and communication through satellites, mobile communication, micro-processors, picture formation and intelligent systems laboratory, the department is proud to provide extensive training facilities for the benefit of students.
