The medium of instruction at our institute is English. We are currently the only internationally distinguished advanced technical university in Turkey. We established graduate programs in 1994 in the center of İzmir and began admitting students to undergraduate programs in 1998. The campus relocated from the city center to the seaside town of Urla, İzmir in 1999. Our institute owns approximately 8,600 acres of land, 32 acres of which are currently dedicated to education and research. Within Turkey, our university is known as “İzmir Yüksek Teknoloji Enstitüsü,” abbreviated as “İYTE.” Our international name is İzmir Institute of Technology, or “IZTECH” for short.IZTECH is divided into three faculties and one graduate school.Education and research are carried out in 18 undergraduate programs, 25 master’s programs and 19 doctoral programs. 7 of the master’s programs and 3 of the doctoral programs are interdisciplinary.
