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 as a “designer”. 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 very competent and experienced faculty with student-centered educational notion. We believe that our faculty meets these qualifications and considering our basic duty is to convince the students that designing is a type of lifestyle and a great adventure. It seems that you have chosen the design disciplines decisively and consciously. This is an important factor facilitating to achieve our difficult task.
