General Information for Applicants can be found here
The Mechanical Engineering Department has strong research expertise in the areas of Acoustics and Noise Control, Computational Mechanics, Design, Dynamics and Control, Manufacturing, Microfluidics, Nanotechnology and Tribology and their applications to the aerospace, automotive and other industrial sectors.
Most research projects are conducted with international collaborations with institutions in the US and Europe. The Department also has plans to develop several research areas consistent with the strengths of Bilkent University and with a vision to develop new and important technologies in Turkey. Among these are micro-systems and their design and manufacturing that will benefit from advances in nanotechnologies. Information on ongoing research activities can be found in the research group websites.
The Mechanical Engineering Department offers MS and PhD degrees. The Department provides a number of scholarships and research assistantships to qualified students.
The details of the application process and requirements can be found on Bilkent University’s Graduate Programs Information website.
Bilkent University invites you to our online open house on Saturday, March 27th, 2021 for the Graduate School of Engineering and Science to learn more about our graduate programs. Program information can be found on Bilkent University's Graduate School Open House Program Information website.
