Education Perspective

An education perspective where theory and practice meet

We provide a significant contribution to the country's economy with our strong university-industry cooperation model.

With the importance it attaches to innovation and R&D, YTU continues to progress on its own path driven by an understanding of education that is framed by the projects it has carried out to meet the needs of the century. Embracing such an approach in education, YTU raises generations who are sensitive to society, contribute to the development of the country, are open to collaboration, develop up-to-date knowledge by producing technological methods, do not get bored with lifelong learning or give up on the obstacles experienced upon starting professional life, and can survive in every situation. Placing analytical thinking ability at the core of its education philosophy, YTU aims for a unique education approach that captures the spirit of the time, with the awareness that one will not be ready for life just by attending classes. In order to achieve this goal, it creates opportunities to offer working solutions to real-life problems with its 20 thematic research groups, 30 research and application centers, and more than 300 research laboratories that live up to international standards.

Our students make a head start in business life with our CO-OP education model

Yıldız Technical University continues to put forward new projects, activities and practices for students not only to help them receive quality education but also to bring their ideas to life throughout their education life, starting from day one. One of these projects is the CO-OP Education Model...

CO-OP is a voluntary system that allows students to work in a company/firm even before they graduate. YTU students, having the chance to apply the theoretical knowledge they acquired at school into practice at the workplace, start their professional life one step ahead with this model. They both meet the leading employers of the sector they want to work in and gain hands-on experience while they are still students. With the awareness of the necessity of preparing its students for life, YTU is realizing a very important and groundbreaking practice in university education with the CO-OP Education Model.

Research studies that produce solutions to real-life problems
