Defense Technologies

Program Description

In recent years, scientific research in optics, electronics, material sciences, and software technologies has led to the development of next-generation defense technology products. In our country, the Defense Industry continually advances each year through scientific studies conducted by both the public and private sectors. To further advance, there is a need to increase the trained workforce that researches and utilizes advanced technologies. The Thesis-Based Master’s Program in Defense Technologies aims to cultivate researchers with a deep knowledge of national and international collaborations, the ability to track the latest developments in defense technologies, necessary design, manufacturing, analysis, and synthesis capabilities, the capacity to generate innovative ideas, and the ability to lead R&D projects.

In line with these goals, the Defense Technologies Master’s Program conducts its studies with an interdisciplinary approach. Our program offers various courses that enable research in technologies such as material sciences, electrical-electronic technologies, control systems, submarine technologies, optics, and lasers, bringing together experts from different disciplines.

The career opportunities for our graduates are extensive, including positions such as design engineer, research and development engineer, system engineer, test engineer, quality control engineer, primarily in industrial organizations, as well as various sectors like machinery, electrical, electronic, computer, software, and communication. Program graduates can also find opportunities to work in public and private institutions such as the Ministry of National Defense and the Defense Industry Presidency.
