History of the Department

Gazi University Department of Mechanical Engineering had provided engineering education under the institutions such as Zafer, Yukselis and Ankara Engineering and Architecture Colleges between 1966-1973. During 1973-1982 our department was a part of Ankara State Academy of Engineering and Architecture; later between 1982-2009 at the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture. In addition to the primary undergraduate program, in 1992-93 academic year, secondary (evening) undergraduate program officially started to accept students. Starting from the academic year of 1993-94, education with partial foreign language (English) has begun for both of the undergraduate programs.

After the establishment of Gazi University Institute of Science in 1983, students are accepted to the Turkish graduate programs for Mechanical Engineering (Master of Science and Philosophy of Doctorate). In the year 2014, the secondary undergraduate program was officially closed and acceptance of students to that program was stopped starting from 2014-15 Fall semester. 100% English undergraduate and graduate programs have been opened in the year 2015.
