Goals

Strategic Objectives Strategic Goals (2020-2025)

Our Institute has set 12 strategic goals for itself by the Quality Commission, which was formed to achieve 4 main strategic goals.

Goal 1: Strengthening Education and Training

When structural analyzes of training programs are carried out; it has been observed that the number of courses per lecturer is high because the number of courses is too high although the number of lecturers is less than the number of courses in some programs, and the number of lecturers is sufficient in some programs. In addition, it has been observed that some of the elective courses of the institute were not elected at all. It may be considered to benefit from lecturers in these fields who are paid hourly. Regarding the content of the education programs, the Institute of Sciences aims to strengthen the structure of its programs in accordance with the requirements of contemporary education. The courses opened for this purpose are also diversified in line with this objective.

Strategic Objective 1: Despite the variety of elective courses, the curriculum in the programs that include the courses that have not been opened will be improved and revised by the end of 2019. By communicating with the departments, the educational objectives of the programs, course structure, credit load, number of faculty members, student recruitment and thesis process will be evaluated and will be organized as a result of the studies.

Strategic Objective 2: Students should be able to freely use their right to choose courses according to their own orientation and to take courses from other programs. These studies are important for students to know their rights and responsibilities and to create a positive educational atmosphere within the institution. In this context, our students will be provided with the opportunity to benefit from the elective courses to be offered in other institutes, and elective courses that can be given in other institutes will be opened in our institute in a way that will serve this purpose. In addition, consultancy interview reports will be prepared and consultancy activities will be monitored and recorded in order to carry out academic consultancy activities more effectively.

Strategic Objective 3: Within the scope of internationalization, it will be ensured that the experience gained through participation in European University Association programs and interactions such as Erasmus exchange programs will be transferred to the Institute's practices.

Strategic Objective 4: Distance and continuous education activities will be increased within the scope of lifelong learning principle, and it is aimed to ensure this culture and development with the trainings given through the Continuing Education Center.

Amaç 2: Kurumsal Kapasiteyi Geliştirmek

Goal 2: Developing Institutional Capacity

The main purpose of postgraduate education, and especially doctoral education, is to train scientists who can conduct research independently. Therefore, perhaps the most distinguishing feature of postgraduate education is that it is based on research and new knowledge generation above all else. In addition, it has set strategic goals in order to enable our students to benefit more from the research and development opportunities of the institution, to contribute to their research in its laboratories, and to make the entire capacity of the institution available at the graduate education level. Strategic targets have been set to enable our students to benefit from the entrepreneurship ecosystem, to contribute to the ideas they have with incubation centers and techno parks, and to the product development processes they think have added value.

Strategic Objective 1: In order to improve organizational functioning, human resources and corporate culture, all students will be given basic training on the thesis process. All students will be given seminars on thesis writing, scientific research, ethics and creativity within the institute. A consultancy training program will be developed in order to improve the consultancy process and to guide the consultants. Within the framework of this program, guides to define institutional good practices and courses will be organized for faculty members who will just start counseling. Efforts will be made to benefit from EU resources and programs in this regard.

Strategic Objective 2: The thesis process will be controlled more efficiently in order to improve the functioning of the organization, develop human resources, and provide institutional and academic contribution. The role of the advisor in the thesis process will be defined in more detail. The quality of theses will be monitored through a measurable and traceable process. It is among our institutional goals to publish the results obtained from theses in journals scanned in international indexes. Surveys and evaluations will be made to evaluate the employment of graduates and their satisfaction in business life

Strategic Objective 3: Entrepreneurship trainings will be provided to help our graduate students and graduates with their sectoral orientation, and also by organizing meetings with sector representatives, sectoral orientation of external stakeholders. A guidance will be provided during their processes.

Goal 3: Developing Internationalization

In the Institute of Sciences, courses within the disciplinary are generally preferred. This causes an education to be introverted and prevents us as from development. Therefore, the Institute aims to disseminate practices that encourage change, such as taking courses between programs and from other institutes, and increasing the rate of elective courses. It is of great importance to develop relations with international education institutions as a way of providing information about the outside world and opening up.

In this framework, it is aimed to increase the number of international students at the Institute and the number of students participating in student exchange. We think that the increase in the activities of the Departments within the Institute for cooperation within the national and international arena will greatly contribute to the creation of an education and research environment where diversity and multiculturalism are dominant.

Strategic Objective 1: In order to increase the international experience of students and staff, the number of courses taken and given from other institutes and between programs will be increased and the number of joint projects will be increased. For this purpose, activities such as mutual visits, exchange of lecturers will be held to increase the cooperation of the Institute with domestic and foreign equivalent institutions. Policies will be developed for the use of European Union resources.


Strategic Objective2: In order to create a multicultural and international campus environment, postgraduate education programs will be established in English, where foreign students will be admitted and who will teach entirely.

Strategic Objective 3: Participation in exchange programs such as Erasmus will be increased in order to increase the international quality of education. In this framework, in addition to the activities specified in the 1st and 2nd strategic objectives, the preparation of the Institute catalog in Turkish and English will be completed, works on ECTS crediting of the courses and the implementation of exchange programs in the thesis period will be carried out. The Institute will be guiding and encouraging in making these changes, which are largely under the initiative of the Departments. For this purpose, a joint coordination will be carried out with the international office. Personnel will be encouraged to participate in university language courses in order to increase the foreign language knowledge of the personnel in the development of the Institute's human resources and in order to provide foreign language support. In addition, the announcements and news areas on our institute website will be used more actively and frequently, and will also be shared in English.

Goal 4: Strengthening Cooperation between the University and its Stakeholders

It is of critical importance for the development of products with strategic and economic value for our country, especially with the developing technology in the field of Sciences for our ideal of producing value-added products, which is also essential in the 10th development plan. Studies carried out on a global scale within this field in the sector, in academy and abroad have once again demonstrated the importance of external stakeholders. For this purpose, the focus has been on the following 2 main objectives.

Strategic Objective 1: In order to ensure a cooperation culture, external stakeholders will give seminars at certain periods under the title of sectoral meetings within the framework of cooperation with universities, private sector, public institutions and NGOs, and to ensure that the needs of the sector and the goals of the academy overlap, and that the curriculum is aimed to be revised accordingly.

Strategic Objective 2: In order to strengthen the infrastructure related to externally supported projects, our students will be provided with trainings to inform and guide them about the support programs announced by the Science Fellowships and Grant Programs (BIDEB) and they will be able to apply for these supports.
