FACULTY OF ENGINEERING AND NATURAL SCIENCES
The Faculty was first established as the Faculty of Natural Sciences, Architecture and Engineering on 21.07.2010 by the decision of the Council of Ministers which was published on the Official Gazette dated 21.07.2010 and numbered 27648. The faculty was renamed as Bursa Technical University, the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences on 11.01.2018. The faculty continues its education activities in both Yıldırım and Mimarsinan campuses in 43 divisions in 15 departments.
Within the active departments, Environmental Engineering, Electrical-Electronics Engineering, Civil Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Computer Engineering and Bioengineering, Food Engineering, Chemistry and Mathematics departments and Optional English Preparatory Program have Turkish curriculum, Fiber and Polymer Engineering, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronics Engineering Departments have 30% English curriculum. The semi-passive Industrial Engineering department has both Turkish and 100%English curriculum.
There are 190 lecturers in the faculty among which are 14 full professors, 18 associate professors, 68 assistant professors, 4 lecturers and 86 research associates. The number of students per faculty member is approximately 26.
The priority research areas for the faculty has determined to be; robots and smart systems, new 3D additive manufacturing, micro and nanotechnology, robotics, artificial intelligence and machine learning, biotechnology, smart materials, biosynthesis, biomaterials and tissue engineering, new generation composites and multifunctional nanocomposite materials, energy storage and energy supplies, micro and nanotechnology, human-computer interaction. Graduate researches have been conducted on these topics.
1300 devices in 47 laboratories are available for practical training of the students in order to reinforce their knowledge. In addition, research and development and innovation projects supported by TÜBİTAK ARDEB, 7th Framework and HORIZON 2020, TUBITAK TEYDEB, SAN-TEZ programs and by public institutions (KOSGEB, TTGV, MFAL, etc.) are carried out in cooperation with industrial organizations.
Sectoral Education Program (BTÜ-SEP), which run in collaboration with industry stakeholders enables students to be exposed to industry experience at real workplaces for 16 weeks. This program constitutes the curriculum of 7th semester in the curriculum of Electrical-Electronics Engineering, Environmental Engineering and Food Engineering departments in the 2018-2019 academic calendar. It is foresen to be implemented in the curriculums of all the departments.
Students those meet the requirements of the European Union Student Exchange Programs (Erasmus, Farabi, Mevlana, etc.) have the opportunity to study in an equivalent program abroad for 1 or 2 semesters. To make double major and secondary major in the departments of Metallurgy and Materials Engineering, Mechatronics Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Chemistry also a possibility.
