Mechanical Engineering Department

The MSc program in Mechanical engineering aims at increasing the abilities of the students to model, analyze and design engineering systems, and at teaching them how to conduct original research. Our graduates are expected to take part in research projects in the industry and academia. To this end our graduate program contains various courses in many fields of mechanical engineering. Apart from the mandatory courses in the program, the students can choose elective courses in their areas of interest with the approval of their supervisors.

The MSc program contains two options: MSc with thesis and non-thesis MSc. The MSc with thesis option requires successful completion of a total of 21 credits of coursework (7 courses),  non-credit ME 590 Seminar course and ME 599 MSc thesis. Students also register to ME 591 Special Studies course every semester after they start thesis research. The non-thesis MSc option requires successful completion of a total of 30 credits of coursework (10 courses) and non-credit ME 590 Project course. In both options the coursework contains 6 credits of mandatory applied engineering mathematics courses (2 courses).

The medium of instruction at Çankaya University is English. To qualify for admission to the MSc program in Mechanical Engineering, students are required to have a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering or in a related engineering field. Candidates who have bachelor’s degree in another engineering field may be required to take additional undergraduate courses.

Programs of Study
The Mechanical Engineering Department offers program leading to the degree of Master of Science.. Students may choose to major in any of the following areas:

  • Combustion
  • Design
  • Fluid Mechanics and Propulsion
  • Heat Transfer
  • Heating, Ventilating, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration
  • Manufacturing
  • Mechanics

A student is encouraged to study in an area interests him or her the most. Students with different academic background are welcomed. The Mechanical Engineering graduate program accommodates individual interests. Graduate students are encouraged for independent and innovative study.
Each graduate student will work with a professor who will assist and provide guidance in the development of a study plan which is tailored to a specific interest and background of the student
Master of Science (MS)
Students whose undergraduate degree is in disciplines other than mechanical engineering (such as math or physics) can apply to Graduate School remains the same regardless of the degree title.

Master’s Degree Options (thesis or non-thesis)
Students who are admitted to the Graduate School may choose to complete either the thesis option or the non-thesis option.

Thesis Option: The thesis option is highly recommended. Student is expected to conduct an independent research and a publish a thesis. The thesis option in Masters Degree provides students with  an advantage when applying for a Ph.D. program or employment.
The thesis option requires a minimum of 21 graduate semester hours of course work (2 compulsory and 5 elective courses in Mechanical Engineering) and a thesis. Research credits acquired through the thesis research registration of ME 599. Research is always completed under the supervision of student Advisory.
Plan of Study must contain a minimum of six (6) hours of applied engineering mathematics.
Non-thesis Option
The non-thesis option requires 30 semester hours of graduate course work and a project. Independent project work will be completed under the supervision of the student advisory. The non-thesis option has a more predictable time frame for completion of course work. This will allow students to plan a graduation date.
Plan of Study must also contain a minimum of six (6) hours of applied engineering mathematics
Library 
The Çankaya University library serves all the Engineering students and it  is housed in Main Campus  and very close to the  Mechanical Engineering Department  It contains most recent books  and more than 34 000 volumes.. The library subscribes to several online periodicals and provides computer-based literature search services. There is also inter- library loan services throughout the country.
Applying for Admission
Applications are accepted for admission to the Fall and Spring semesters. To qualify for admission to the master's degree program, students are required to have a bachelor's degree from mechanical engineering, another field of engineering, or one of the physical sciences. Applicants who do not have an undergraduate major in mechanical engineering are required to take additional undergraduate coursework
