METU-Technopolis


METU-Technopolis or METUTECH is the first science and research park in Turkey. Founded within the campus it aims to facilitate the development of companies that conduct substantial research and development to produce high-tech products and services through benefiting from METU's research capacity and information pool. Priority is given to companies executing research and development work on information technologies advanced materials energy automotive chemistry biology and environment technologies.

As of 2009 the METU-Technopolis project employs about 3 300 personnel approximately 2 700 of whom are researchers (86% of the total staff are university graduates and 23% have MSc MA or PhD degrees) working in 240 firms. Around 90% of the firms are small and medium enterprises (SMEs) 65% of these are specialized in information and communication technologies 25% in electronics and 15% in other sectors such as aerospace environment bio-technology nanotechnology and advanced materials. The company profile also includes multinationals such as SBS MAN Cisco and Siemens. To promote entrepreneurship and innovation the incubation center at the METU-Technopolis serves 38 start-ups and micro sized companies most of which start their life as spin-offs from METU research projects.

METU-Technopolis hosts partners to several European Union Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) projects such as NICE SINCERE ReSIST SmeInnov8gate and IP4INNO.


Academics


As of 2010 METU has approximately 23 000 students of which 15 800 are enrolled in undergraduate programs 4 500 in masters and 2 700 in doctorate programs. A further 1 500 students are attending programs in the new Northern Cyprus Campus. Over 40% of METU's students go on to graduate school. Each academic year METU hosts over 1 500 regular international students from nearly 80 different countries; and through 168 Erasmus Programme agreements and 182 bilateral exchange and cooperation agreements with universities abroad (e.g. in Central Asia Middle East North America Australia Far East and Pacific Region) it sends 350 students and receives 300 students and 50 researchers annually. As of 2010 the university employs 2 500 faculty (professors and associate professors) 500 academic instructors and over 2 000 research assistants.[citation needed] The number of the alumni exceeds 500 000 (about 350 000 having completed undergraduate programs).[citation needed]

METU has about 40 undergraduate programs within the faculties of Engineering Architecture Arts and Sciences Economic and Administrative Sciences and Education and there are 97 masters and 62 doctorate programs available in the graduate schools of Natural and Applied Sciences Social Sciences Informatics Applied Mathematics and Marine Sciences. METU commonly ranks close to the top among research universities in Turkey with over one third of the 1 000 highest scoring students in the national university entrance examination choosing to enroll; and most of its departments accepting the top 0.1% of the nearly 1.5 million applicants. In the Webometrics Ranking of World Universities published in July 2009 aiming to measure through web-based publications the institution size research output and impact METU ranked as the world's 435th (1st place within Turkey) among 15 000 universities being the only university from Turkey to get included among the top 500.

Researchers from METU actively take part in many COST EUREKA NASA NATO NSF UN World Bank Jean Monnet Erasmus Mundus Leonardo and SOCRATES projects. METU has been involved in 56 European Union 6th Framework Programme (FP6) projects including the coordination of 12 FP6 and 3 Networks of Excellence projects. Within the 7th Framework Programme (FP7) 33 research projects involve participation of METU since 2007.

As of 2010 METU has 19 international joint degree programmes with European and American universities at the undergraduate and graduate levels. METU is a member of various associations and networks dealing with international education and exchange including EUA EAIE IIE GE3 SEFI and CIEE. The university also actively participates in AIESEC and IAESTE summer internship programs. English as the language of instruction in all its degree programs has greatly facilitated METU's international involvements and accommodation of international students and researchers.

METU continually goes through external assessment accreditation and certification by international organizations. In 1991 METU initiated a long-term program to have its engineering programs evaluated by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) the recognized U.S. accreditor of college and university programs in applied science computing engineering and technology. This process was concluded with the Faculty of Engineering having all its thirteen undergraduate programs declared as "substantially equivalent" to the ABET accredited programs in the USA. The university has completed the evaluation process of Institutional Evaluation Programme (IEP) of the European University Association (EUA) in 2002.

Because of METU's effort to maintain international standards the Faculty of Engineering was awarded in 1977 the "Silver Badge of Honor" by the UNESCO International Center for Engineering Education and the "Meritorious Achievement Award in Accreditation Activities" by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). METU was awarded the international Aga Khan Award for Architecture in 1995 for its forestation program.

Being the pioneer institution of the country to connect to the Internet backbone in the early 1990s METU also manages Turkey's Country Code Top-level Domain (ccTLD) (the ".tr" domain).

Student life and culture


The student life at METU is marked with activities of student societies frequent political protests and festivals. The Cultural and Convention Center continually hosts a wide spectrum of cultural events and also regular occurrences such as the METU Jazz Days and METU Art Festival. The event with the largest number of participants is the annual METU Spring Festival a five-day-long series of open-air concerts and exhibitions held at the main campus.

There are various traits shared by METU students including the usage of an English–Turkish jargon (METUrkish ODTÜrkçe as once named by an alumnus artist in an art project) which apparently stems from the fact that English is the language of instruction covering academic processes and student life (and blending into campus language similar to Persian Arabic and later French in the past blended into Turkish to form Ottoman technical language) which reputedly is not liked much by the students of other universities; and the omnipresent word "Hocam" (meaning "My Teacher") which is used by METU students to address anyone from bus drivers to senior faculty members. Underneath this phrase lies the philosophy that everyone has something to learn from each other.

The main campus has dormitory capacity for nearly 7 000 students who benefit from the shopping center banks post office and a wide variety of sports facilities including gymnasiums tennis courts basketball and football fields jogging trails Olympic-size indoor swimming pool and an outdoor swimming pool.

History


Middle East Technical University was founded under the name "Orta Doğu Teknoloji Enstitüsü" (Middle East Institute of Technology) on November 15 1956 to contribute to the development of Turkey and the surrounding countries of the Middle East Balkans and Caucasus by creating a skilled workforce in the natural and social sciences. "Arrangements and Procedures as for the Foundation of METU Law No 6213" was enacted on January 22 1957 whereby the current name "Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi" (ODTÜ) was adopted. Finally the "Foundation Act No 7907" setting forth the particular standing of METU and establishing it as a juridical entity was enacted on May 27 1959.

In the early years immediately following its foundation METU was temporarily hosted in a small building that previously belonged to the Social Security Office of Retirees in Kızılay and another building near the Grand National Assembly of Turkey. In 1963 the university moved to its current location west of Ankara city center creating the first university campus of Turkey. In 1956 the Department of Architecture initiated the first academic program at METU followed by the Department of Mechanical Engineering in the spring of 1957. At the start of the 1957–1958 academic year the Faculty of Architecture the Faculty of Engineering and the Faculty of Administrative Sciences were established. In 1959 the establishment of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences was completed. The Faculty of Education launched its academic program in 1982.


Campuses



Ankara campus

METU main campus in Ankara used by the university since 1963 is the first university campus of Turkey.
