In the 2011-2012 academic year, Istanbul Gedik University’s Mechatronics Engineering Program began admitting students and graduated its first cohort in the 2015-2016 academic year. In addition to our Turkish program, in the 2017-2018 academic year, we established a 100% English-language Mechatronics Engineering Program, which started with its first students in the same year.

The Gedik Mechatronics Engineering Program is committed to providing its students with the best theoretical and practical education. To achieve this, it boasts modern classrooms, Physics, Chemistry, and Information Technology laboratories, as well as the “Mechatronics Engineering Laboratory” at our Kartal campus, and the “Mechanical, Electronic, and Automation Workshops” within the GeKa Robot facility, specializing in “Robot Design – Project Development and Commissioning.” In these laboratories and at the Istanbul Gedik University Robotics Technology Application and Research Center, our students have the opportunity to learn mechatronic systems through hands-on practice.

The Mission of the Gedik Mechatronics Engineering Program

Our mission is to educate mechatronics engineers who are equipped with knowledge and skills in mechatronic engineering and related interdisciplinary fields, capable of analytical thinking, possessing professional ethical values, able to follow and contribute to technology at an international level, and able to conduct R&D in collaboration with industry and academia in a sustainable and innovative manner, while fostering teamwork and entrepreneurship.

The Vision of the Gedik Mechatronics Engineering Program

To become a program that creates sustainable, innovative, value-adding activities at national and international levels in interdisciplinary areas related to mechatronics.

From Our Graduates…

  • Gizem Aydemir:

I graduated from Istanbul Gedik University’s Mechatronics Engineering Department in 2017. I completed my undergraduate degree as the second in the department and third in the faculty. During my Mechatronics Engineering education at Istanbul Gedik University, I worked part-time at GeKa Robot, a subsidiary of Gedik Holding, for three years. At the same time, I completed my mandatory internships for three months at OTC-Daihen, a robotics company in Germany, through the Erasmus+ program. For my senior project, I worked on underwater robotic systems. Within Istanbul Gedik University, under the guidance of Professor Savaş Dilibal, I founded the Underwater Robotics Team with my friends Fatih Çakır, Engin Bağlayıcı, and Furkan Çetinkaya from the Departments of Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering. In our first participation in the Underwater Robotics competition organized by the Faculty of Engineering, we won the 2nd place in Turkey. After graduation, I continued my master’s studies in Mechatronics Engineering at Yıldız Technical University. During my master’s education, I received admission for a Ph.D. at Sorbonne University’s Robotics Institute in Paris, France. I am currently working on a doctoral thesis focused on the development of robotic systems for the detection of cancer and muscle diseases at Sorbonne University’s Robotics Institute.
