Istanbul Technical University | History and Background
Istanbul Technical University is an international technical university located in Istanbul, Turkey. It is the world’s third-oldest technical university dedicated to engineering sciences as well as social sciences recently, and is one of the most prominent educational institutions in Turkey. Istanbul Technical University exists to expand the limits of knowledge in science, technology and arts and to respond to the necessities of society through practice. Istanbul Technical University is an institution that plays a leading role in science, technology, arts and sports. İTÜ aims to be the center of science, which connects the past to the present by producing projects for the future. The structure of faculties, except the Faculty of Science and Letters, at ITU is comparable to those of “schools” in the U.S. institutions,[dubious – discuss] where each faculty is composed of two or more departments in line with a comprehensive engineering field. For example, the Faculty of Electrical and Electronics Engineering consists of the departments of electrical engineering, control engineering, electronics and communication engineering. By 1928 the institution had gained formal recognition as a university of engineering which provided education in both engineering and architecture. In 1944 the name of the institution was changed to Istanbul Technical University and in 1946 the institution became an autonomous university with architecture, civil, mechanical, and electrical engineering faculties.
With its long history of 243 years, its modern teaching environment, and well-qualified teaching staff, Istanbul Technical University today is the personification of engineering and architectural education in Turkey. Istanbul Technical University not only played a leading role in the modernization movement of the Ottoman Empire, but has also maintained its leadership position in the changes and innovations taking place in the construction, industrialization, and technological realms during the modern days of the Turkish Republic. Engineers and architects trained at Istanbul Technical University have played significant roles in the construction of Turkey. Alumni also played a significant role in Turkish politics.
