 8-  The ability to identify, formulate and solve scientific and engineering problems.
 9-  The ability to design experiments and processes, conduct, analyze and interpret data.
 10-  Ability to obtain an engineering position in his/her area of interest, and/or continiue on to a gradute school.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates

At the end of their study period at the graduate level, the students become specialist in their fields and they can work in the universities as a teaching staff or in private sector.

Access to Further Studies

It is possible for the institute students to continue their third cycle education after second cycle degree.

Examination Regulations, Assesment and Grading

Examinations are composed of one mid-term and one final exam. In order a student to take the final exam, s/he should attend at least 70% of theoretical courses and 80% of applied and laboratory studies. The examinations can be in written form, oral form, written-application form, oral-application form or project form. The course grade is calculated by adding 40% of mid-term grade to the 60% of the final exam. To be accepted as successful from the course, the second cycle degree students should get at least 70(CC) out of 100, the third cycle degree students should get 75 (CB) out of 100. The final exam results should be 70 (CC) for second cycle degree students in order to pass the course

Graduation Requirements

The requirements to graduate from Master Degree are to complete 120 ECTS credit hours including at least seven courses the credit of which is above 21 National Credits, a seminar and thesis study.
