Welcome to MEDU
provide students with a rich environment for learning and intellectual growth through a broad-based education in the scientific and applied foundations of engineering and a solid foundation in problem-solving, design, and communication skills that they will need to pursue and meet the challenges of their individual career goals.
The undergraduate program starts with introductory courses to mechanical engineering and systems engineering to familiarize students with the fundamentals aspects of mechanical engineering and design and manufacturing processes and the importance of computer skills in engineering. In the second year of the program, in-depth studies of the mechanical engineering topics are studied in an integrated manner. Thermodynamics is integrated with fluid mechanics and heat transfer, mechanics and materials are studied in an integrated manner. This approach carries to the junior year where dynamics is studied together with controls topics. In each year of study, students experience design and manufacturing through courses or projects, which expose them to hands-on as well as computer-aided design and manufacturing.
THE MISSION OF THE DEPARTMENT
The mission of the Mechanical Engineering undergraduate program at Bilkent University is to provide students with a rich environment for learning and intellectual growth through a broad-based education in the scientific and applied foundations of engineering and a solid foundation in problem-solving, design and communication skills that they will need to pursue and meet the challenges of their individual career goals. The program envisions future engineers as life-long learners and prepares them for the global environment in which they can make responsible decisions while serving societal needs.
PROGRAM EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES
The objectives of the Mechanical Engineering undergraduate program at Bilkent University are:
1. To prepare students for their individual career paths and to foster the ability to adapt to the rapidly changing technologies faced by engineers.
2. To assist the students to distinguish themselves as innovative problem solvers and leaders in multidisciplinary settings, through high quality and rigorous mechanical engineering education that is enriched by a flexible curriculum and interdisciplinary research opportunities.
3. To provide the student's opportunities to pursue directions of personal interest, design and teamwork experiences, and to have significant hands-on experience
The Mechanical Engineering program has adopted the following ABET student outcomes:
|(a)||an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering|
|(b)||an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data|
|(c)||an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability|
|(d)||an ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams|
|(e)||an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems|
|(f)||an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility|
|(g)||an ability to communicate effectively|
|(h)||the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context|
|(i)||a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning|
|(j)||a knowledge of contemporary issues|
|(k)||an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice|
The curriculum as a whole is integrated and advanced courses build on earlier ones. Our education programs include laboratory, design, and computational activities in a coordinated manner. Successful completion of the fundamental mechanical engineering courses along with other required studies prepares students for the final year of mechanical engineering design courses. This is a sequence of two courses spread over a year where students undertake a major design project, often sponsored by industry, and produce a working prototype. The curriculum is supported by modern laboratory facilities.
