General Description

History

Dokuz Eylul University, Computer Engineering Department was founded in 1994 by the founding head Prof. Dr. Esen ÖZKARAHAN. The undergraduate program has started in 1995. The program language is English. Those students, who fail to pass the English Proficiency Test, must attend the English Preparatory Class. The education was conducted in the classical system until 2007, but after the 2007-2008 academic year, the Project / Problem-Based Learning system was adopted. Currently, based on a relative grading system; group and individual applications, written exams with assignments and project based evaluation are used. Since its establishment, Formal Education program has been implemented. In addition to Undergraduate Education, Master and PhD programs in Computer Engineering are offered at the Graduate School of Natural and Applied Sciences. The language of graduate programs is English.

Profile of the Programme

Undergraduate, Master and PhD programs are provided by Dokuz Eylul University Computer Engineering Department. The language is English for all programs.
The aim of the department is to train Computer Engineers who can lead the developing and structuring IT sector in our country and who can be creative in theoretical and applied fields. The objective of the program is to provide the students with the capability to design, implement and manage computer software and hardware systems. For this purpose, courses in algorithms and programming, data structures, computer architecture, circuit theory and electronics, software engineering, information systems, operating systems, computer networks and database management systems are given.
Students who are successful in their undergraduate programs, may have Double Major Degree Program (DMP) and/or Minor Program in other engineering programs. A diploma in a second branch is given to students who complete a major program, while a certificate in a second branch is given to students who complete a minor program.
Department has been awarded accreditation since 2007 and also EUR-ACE label for years 2009-2014, by Association for Evaluation and Accreditation of Engineering Programs (MUDEK).
Since 2010, BOLOGNA Process (European Higher Education Area alignment) has been started for the citizens of the countries within the European Higher Education Area, to provide easy travelling for higher education and working.
Since 2011, Diploma Supplement is given to graduating students. The University has received the Diploma Supplement Label and studies are in progress for the ECTS label.
Through bilateral agreements with high-quality institutions of international reputation, the Department is aiming to increase the knowledge and experience, by supporting the exchange of students and academics. As of 2017, the Department has 9 bilateral agreements for ERASMUS Students and Scholars Exchange Program, and 6 bilateral agreements for FARABİ program.
As of 2017, the educational and research activities are maintained with a wide range of academic staff consisting of 2 professors, 5 associate professors, 3 assistant professors, 3 lecturers and 15 research assistants.
Education is given in the 6 classrooms and 3 presentation rooms in a three-storey building. There is a projector, a computer, and a white board, in every classroom. There are 1 computer laboratories, 1 hardware laboratory in service of the students. Additionally, there are 4 research laboratories next to the academic staff rooms, used in thesis research of graduate students. There is also both wired and wireless network connection available for all students and instructors, in the department.
With consulting faculty members, our students have won first, second and third prize in various competitions like Microsoft Imagine Cup, IBM Software Academy etc., in Turkey.
The department has 4 ongoing Research Groups. These are Natural Language Processing Work Group, Data Mining Work Group, Security Research Group and Multimedia Information Retrieval Work Group. The department faculty members have publications enlisted in SCI and other edited journals. In addition, they are developing TEYDEB and TUBITAK projects.
The department has the capability to provide consulting services to every corporation and mainly software companies, in every field of computer sciences. The department faculty members can provide knowhow and working environment support for databases, computer networks, distance learning, natural language processing, multimedia (music and image) processing, computer security, project management, software quality, the application of latest computer technology developments, in industrial and other projects. In this context, joint graduation projects which can extend into graduate education with industrial corporations have been started.
