Graduate Program

Introduction of Program

Master of Science program has been established in 2005-2006 Academic year with the primary mission of educating professionals who are focused on advanced technology, dynamic and can participate in the development of high quality, reliable, cost-effective, national and international technology.

Basically the department’s education program has been prepared to create environments for learning-by-doing, project-based learning and participation, to enable the students to gain industrial experience through projects and to provide all the theoretical knowledge required.

Laboratories are designed with a different approach and established with a structure that allows each student to design, manufacture and practice by themselves or by teamwork. With this property, a laboratory medium that can be shown as an only example in the world is built. For detailed information about the laboratory, please click here.

Aim of the Program

MS program aims at giving expertise in the field of Mechatronics Engineering for the graduates of Mechatronics related programs, and for the graduates from the other disciplines by providing all the required background and high level proficiency in the software area in an attempt to fill the vacancy and in the field.

Specific Admission Requirements

Acceptance to MS program is done in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Institute of Graduate School of Natural and Applied Sciences. Please follow the link for Regulation on Atilim University Graduate Programs.

Graduate Programs in Mechatronics Engineering

Objectives: The aims of the programs are to educate and train students with B. Sc. Degree of differing educational backgrounds at a truly interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary engineering platform for further education and research; and to provide a medium to disseminate the recent advances in mechatronics engineering and related emerging technologies to lead the industry and research community.

 

Key program outcomes:

  • Mastering modeling, analysis and simulation of mechatronic systems in detail, both at system and components levels.

  • Being able to identify a latent/open technological problem or need, propose methods to satisfy within mechatronics technology, communicate other engineering disciplines if further expertise is required.

  • Mastering to initiate a design project, lead a multidisciplinary design team and implement a design product on site using the latest available technology on the topic.

  • Having fundamental skills and educated talents for effective engineering communication, experience on research and design methodology.

  • Mastering hands-on projects at all levels; fundamental, academic and industrial research.

 

M. Sc. Thesis Option

Program requirements: For the Second cycle (Master’s Degree) program with thesis, a student is required to take a minimum of 7 courses with 21 credits (35 ECTS) and a Master's thesis(80 ECTS). Also, a student is required to take the Graduation Seminar course (40 ECTS) the semester before Graduation. The student must have a minimum CGPA of 3.00/4.00 with no failing grades and must prepare and defend a graduation project.

M. Sc. Non Thesis Option

Program requirements: For the Second cycle (Master’s Degree) program without thesis, a student is required to take a minimum of 10 courses with 30 credits (50 ECTS) and a graduation project (40 ECTS). The student must have a minimum CGPA of 3.00/4.00 with no failing grades and must prepare and defend a graduation project.
