The basic aim of education is not to teach something, but “to teach how to learn”. As a matter of fact, the aim of design education is beyond this. The primary goal of the CIU Faculty of Fine Arts, Design and Architecture is to teach you how to know, think and behave in a “designerly” way. The achievement of these targets, first of all, is closely associated with the arousing interest and enthusiasm of the students toward design and designing. This requires a very competent and experienced faculty who have internalized student-centered educational notion. We believe that we have such a very competent faculty and considering our basic duty is to prove to the student that designing is a type of life style and a great adventure. It seems that you have chosen the design disciplines decisively and consciously. This is an important facilitating factor to achieve our difficult task.
