The construction sector is defined as the driving sector in all economies as it develops the
business volume in many other sectors in addition to its own. Population growth and
advancing technology bring along the need for more qualified construction technicians for
designing and constructing higher-capacity transport networks, water resources, repairing or
reconstructing existing roads, bridges and other structures.
Aim of the Construction Technology program is to train technicians who can apply the projects designed by engineers and architects. Technicians can perform the calculations of the structural system of a building in addition to applying pre-designed projects.
Our mission is to educate students by giving them the fundamentals of technical knowledge, design, and practical skills, and provide them with the necessary tools to take their place in the modern world. In addition to this, we aim to increase the quality of life by providing safe and modern living environments by disseminating scientific thought and environmental consciousness, by developing social cooperation and a solidarity culture, and by creating conditions for sustainable development.
Employers and company owners expect civil engineering graduates to have a strong educational
background, to understand the market, and to be competent in adapting themselves to
leadership and group projects. For this reason, students improve themselves through
conducting experiments on building sites offering all the necessary conditions. Supervised
by their teachers, students take part in scientific projects that contribute to science and
to the national economy. Detailed studies carried out in the laboratory environment improve
the perception of the site environment and provide problem solving in a short time.
Our graduates who follow technological developments are provided to keep themselves up to date with working techniques parallel to time and developments.
