In the Aegean zone, especially in Izmir and Manisa, a large number of Steel manufacturing, iron and steel casting, aluminium casting, machinery manufacturing, plastics and ceramics manufacturing facilities operate. On a regional basis these facilities are in need of metallurgical and materials engineers. Our department’s graduate engineers will contribute to meeting this requirement.
The field of materials and manufacturing is still in the areas of priority research. Research and development activities of manufacturers and research institutions in this field are supported by regional and national funds. Therefore, the graduates of this department will have the chance to work not only in regional production facilities but also in research facilities in the country as well as abroad.
