YTU raises generations who are sensitive to society, contribute to the development of the country, are open to collaboration, develop up-to-date knowledge by producing technological methods, do not get bored with lifelong learning or give up on the obstacles experienced upon starting professional life, and can survive in every situation.
Setting an educational philosophy that combines theory and practice at the core, YTU aims for a unique education approach that captures the spirit of the time, with the awareness that one will not be ready for life just by attending classes. In order to achieve this goal, it creates opportunities to offer working solutions to real-life problems with its 20 thematic research groups, 30 research and application centers, and more than 300 research laboratories that live up to international standards.
Our students do not just get an education here, they also get ready to compete in professional life and climb the career ladder. By means of the strong ties we have established with Turkey's leading companies, we constantly evaluate the expectations and feedback coming from these companies. Accordingly, we are implementing the CO-OP Education Model, which is an important project to provide our students with on-the-job learning experience.
YTU has signed many national and international collaborative projects to date. While each partnership helped both YTU and YTU academics and students to take themselves a step further, it also brought gains to the institutions and organizations with which they cooperated.
