At least 2 reference(s) must be provided.
A motivation letter must be added to your application.
The purpose of the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering is to provide professional training, and at the same time to participate actively in applied and theoretical research. It is therefore necessary for students to acquire a sound knowledge of basic sciences, such as mathematics, physics and chemistry together with an understanding of economics, social sciences and humanities before specialization takes place.
The graduate program gives opportunities to qualified students for further education at an advanced level. The students may specialize in the fields of circuits and systems, electronics (VLSI, solid-state electronics, optoelectronics and MEMS), biomedical engineering, EMT, communications, signal processing, control systems, robotics, computer engineering, electrical machines and power electronics, power systems and high voltage.
The candidates fulfilling the university requirements are awarded the degree of Master of Science (M.S.) in Electrical and Electronics Engineering. A minimum of seven courses and a seminar on the thesis topic is required by the department for the M.S. degree.
Students will be taking all courses at METU-Ankara during first two semesters. Their principal thesis advisor has to be an academic from METU-NCC Electrical and Electronics Engineering Program, however co-advisors may be assigned from METU-Ankara.
Research is the life blood of an institution of higher education. In the Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department strong academic programs provide a background for the directed research that form a part of the M.S. programs. It is the policy of the Department to encourage its members to take part in externally sponsored project works. These activities forming a mutually beneficial link between the university and industry serve not only as a stimulus for a more intensive research environment in the Department but constitute a channel of information about the present and future needs of the industry to help in the improvement of the educational programs.
Some of the major research activities are: Power system analysis and planning, power system control and operation, insulation, breakdown in dielectrics, H.V. measurement techniques, gaseous discharges, design of electrical machines, control of electrical machines, electrical drives, power converters, renewable energy sources, process control and instrumentation, intelligent control, adaptive control, vision, kinematics and trajectory planning of robots, artificial intelligence, pattern recognition, VLSI design, solid-state electronics, optoelectronics, MEMS, signal processing, data transmission, synchronization and equalization, coding techniques, speech processing, switching circuits, microcomputers (software and hardware), computer aided instruction, scattering and diffraction problems, antennas and radar, active and passive microwave devices and systems, biomedical instrumentation, medical imaging, acoustic imaging, pulse shaping filters, broad band matching.
The EEE MS program consists of 7 regular courses, one seminar course, and thesis research, which must add up to at least 21 credits. The 3 mandatory elective courses should be chosen from the 7 suggested elective courses. The 3 mandatory elective courses are taken during the first two semesters. The rest of the regular course workload consists of electives, to be taken during the second or third semesters. Although it is highly recommended to select a Thesis advisor, and form a Thesis committee with his/her guidance by the end of the first semester, it is conceivable this process extends into the second semester. The 4 elective courses can either be taken during the first semester or the second as long as the prerequisite requirement of the intended course is satisfied. The seminar course involves seminars given by instructors and students. The program typically lasts two years for full-time students.
Electrical and electronics engineers are involved in a wide variety of technology ranging from huge global positioning systems which can pinpoint the location of a moving vehicle to gigantic electrical power generators. These engineers are responsible for designing, developing, testing as well supervising the production of electrical and electronic equipment and machinery. Broadcast and telecommunication systems, electric motors, controls of machinery, lights and wiring in building complexes, vehicles, aircraft, radar and navigation systems, power generation, control and transmission devices which are used by electric utilities are all examples of equipment built by these engineers. They may also work in fields which relate to computers and IT.
