Aim of the Department

The aim of Civil Engineering Department is to provide its students with the knowledge and skills within industry structure planning, designing and constructing all kinds of buildings, dams, airports, bridges, roads, channels, pipelines, water treatment stations, tunnels, railways, metros and the like.

Civil Engineering is one of the oldest engineering branches of the world, which appeared with the transition of human to permanent settlement. Having become one of the important engineering branches in the light of the advanced technological and scientific developments, civil engineering has been in a constant development and motion through the changing life styles and expectations of the human kind.

Engineers carry out the planning, projecting, construction and auditing of all kinds of living spaces that you may imagine from residences to hospital buildings, dams to bridges, ports to water supply networks, shopping malls to schools as well as of service and industrial structures. Istanbul Gelisim University, Faculty of Civil Engineering has been raising such engineers that understand the requirements of their age, have the capacity to design human-sensitive, environment-friendly projects and successful in team-working.

Students of the Department of Civil Engineering receive basic courses like mathematics, chemistry, physics, geology, computer programs, etc. in the first year of their education and they begin to receive technical courses and design projects in fields covered by the civil engineering department as of the 2nd grade. The students who are granted with the internship opportunity are experiencing their theoretical knowledge in practice, as well. Some of the courses in the Department of Civil Engineering are performed at laboratories so as to ensure that practical training is provided to students. The curriculum of the Department of Civil Engineering was designed as per ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) in accordance with the Bologna Process.

Target of the Department
Mission of the Department

Our mission is to prepare students for the future with both theoretical and practical knowledge, with full knowledge in the field and the ability to follow and apply scientific and technological developments with self-confidence and ethical values. The civil engineering education program provides students a capability to model and solve real world technical problems with computational approaches. Mathematical thinking ability helps them to analyze engineering problems in an efficient manner. Our graduates can work in all fields related to civil engineering aided automation.

Vision of the Department

To train and prepare a graduate with team spirit and who can take part in common projects, who think analytically and feel responsible towards society, who contribute to the development of civil engineering profession both nationally and internationally.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

According to the mission of Civil Engineering program, the following program educational objectives are career and professional accomplishments that our expected to be achieved by our graduates within a few years of their graduation:

1. Are able to develop or design safe, sustainable, economical and environmentally sound solutions for engineering problems either within the profession or through post-graduate research (1,2,6);

2. Grow professionally in their careers through continued development of technical, management, and oral and written communication skills; achievement of professional licensure; and assumption of roles of responsibility and leadership in professional service (4,7);

3. Achieve their professional aims ethically and with cultural competency within an environment characterized by the diverse needs of society and the profession (4,7);

4. Provide public and private sectors with professional and innovative solutions to civil engineering and interdisciplinary problems (3,4,5);

Student Outcomes (SOs)

Our BSc program in Civil Engineering strives to ensure that our students attain the following outcomes:

An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

Career Opportunities
The Department of Civil Engineering offers a wide line of business. Graduates of this department can find an employment opportunity in any place where construction exists. They can find jobs at companies that develop, project new living spaces, airports, dams, roads, bridges as well as hundreds of structure types, or at auditing institutions in accordance with their fields of interest and expertise.

The graduates can work as academicians, researchers and experts in national or international universities, research centers and corporations.
