About the Department

Metallurgical and Material Engineering is primarily responsible for producing, researching and enhancing the properties of the material according to the technological demands of the industry.

Metallurgical and Material Engineering is a multi-disciplinary science and engineering field serving  for materials needs of many engineering branches such as bioengineering, automotive, aerospace engineering as well as electrical, civil and mechanical engineering. The primary focus of Metallurgical and Materials engineering includes all production and research processes of materials including metals and alloys, ceramics, polymers, composites.


 The mission of Istanbul Gedik University, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department is to educate Metallurgical and Material Engineers and scientists who are creative and capable of learning new techniques in their field, able to contribute to regional and national growth of industry as well as having a strong comprehension of their ethical responsibilities.


 The vision and scope of our Department is to graduate Metallurgical and Material Engineers for shaping and enhancing both national – international research activities. It is also in our vision to prepare and manage our teaching activities with a contemporary approach to provide an outlook on university – industry cooperation to our students.

Why Metallurgical and Material Engineering?

 Because, if there is no Material, then there is no Engineering.

Among all engineers, only Metallurgical and Materials engineers are fully capable of comprehending the true demands of an industrial design. Realization of an design strictly depends on material and its properties. As fuselage of a plane is made of aluminum, an engineer should find which aluminum alloy to use for this specific purpose.

Because, Metallurgical and Material engineering is the corner stone of all engineering branches as they depend on materials.

Because, as a Metallurgical and Material engineer you have the opportunity to choose and work in a broad spectrum of engineering branches.  Such as:

  1. Aerospace and aeronautics.
  2. Naval and Marine engineering.
  3. Automotive industry.
  4. Advanced engineering ceramics.
  5. Mobile phones, electrical and electronics engineering.
  6. Battery technologies.
  7. Bioengineering.

And many others.

Because, you may follow an education path, become a welding engineer and a non-destructive tests expert.

Because, there are fewer universities which provide Metallurgical and Materials Engineering education. This means, you may have a less competitive future comparing to other engineering branches. Additionally, in recent years, local manufacturing has been accelerated. This increased the need for highly qualified Metallurgical and Material engineers.

92 % of our alumni are currently employed as: Research Engineers, Manufacturing Engineer, Manufacturing Manager, Design Engineer, Quality and Control Engineer, Welding Engineer.
