New Book from Prof. Dr. Metin Gürgöze

Prof. Dr. Metin GÜRGÖZE's book "Parametre Tahrikli Titreşimler" has been published by "İTÜ Vakfı Yayınları". First of all, we congratulate our professor, and we sincerely believe that this work, which has been prepared with the experience of many years, will help fill a gap in our mechanical literature. We hope that the work will be useful to graduate and doctoral students and engineers working in the industry, who will be interested in the subject.

The second edition of Assist. Prof. Adil YÜCEL's MATLAB book is printout

The author of the book, Assist. Prof. Adil YÜCEL is a faculty member who has been interested in programming since his secondary school years and has proven himself with his studies on this subject. The idea of writing a book, which was born while sharing his experiences with his students, from the first days he started teaching programming related courses, resulted in this book. In this book, Assist. Prof. Adil YÜCEL aims to provide engineering students with a basic programming background beyond explaining the use of the MATLAB programming package. The book has been prepared to provide students the ability to develop algorithms to help them solve the problems they encounter, by giving them numerical analysis knowledge. We believe that this book, which includes examples of mathematics, engineering, and mechanical applications, which are not very common in similar books, will be very useful to students.

ITU Faculty of Mechanical Engineering


ITU Faculty of Mechanical Engineering takes pride in having close to 100 years of Mechanical Engineering tradition, and has currently 33 Professors, 12 Associate Professors, 24 Assistant Professors and 15 Lecturers as Faculty members. At present, we have over 2000 undergraduate students, all of which were selected among the top ~0.5% of the ~2.3 million students taking the nationwide university entrance exam annually.

Founded in 1933, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering received its current name in 1944. With the university reform in 1933, the Institute of Electricity and Machines of the Istanbul University was replaced by the Electro-Mechanic Department; and by doing so our Mechanical Engineering education, which still continues, began 87 years ago. 11 years later in 1944, the name of the institution was changed to Istanbul Technical University and under it a separate school/college of Mechanical Engineering was founded with the current name: “Faculty of Mechanical Engineering“.

Our faculty is one of the oldest institutions in our country that carries out education and research activities in the field of mechanical engineering. The different engineering branches it hosts have developed and become a faculty. in 1969; Faculty of Naval Architecture and Marine Sciences, in 1983; The Faculty of Textile Technologies and Design and the Faculty of Aeronautics and Astronautics gained their independent status.In the first years, the Mining Engineering department, which was part of the basic sciences and general engineering courses instruct within the scope of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, became an independent faculty in 1953.

ITU Faculty of Mechanical Engineering performs research and education in the design, development and production planning of all types of mechanical and energy transformation systems. Our 75 Faculty members are performing research and development in a wide range of areas related to both immediate needs of the industry and also cutting edge science for future technologies and applications. Our research areas include, but not limited to, Automotive Industry, Petrochemical Industry, Robotics, Textile Industry, Defense Industry, Reverse Engineering, Clean Energy, Renewable Energy, Underground Gasification, MEMS, Nanotechnology, Pharmaceutics, and Biomolecular Engineering.

With its gorgeous Ottoman era building providing extensive lab space, massive laboratory and research investment performed in the past 87 years, and the recent addition of the 1500 m2 big Dr. Keskin Keser student lab building, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering has one of the most extensive educational and research laboratories in Turkey and provides its students with top quality Mechanical Engineering education in a gorgeous historical building located at a prime location in the very heart of Istanbul.
