TED

Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the Founder of Turkey, who believed in the vital importance of the role of education for the modernization of the country, stated in his speech at the inauguration of the Turkish Grand National Assembly in November, 1925 that in order to reach the goal set for a modern education system in Turkey there was a need for the involvement of the private enterprise. Turkish Education Association was founded on October 31, 1928, on the basis of this vision and in line with the pioneering efforts of Atatürk and his friends. On December 12, 1939, it was afforded the legal status of ‘Association for Public Good’ by the decision of the Cabinet.

As stated in the second clause of its charter, the President of the Turkish Republic is the Guardian of the Turkish Education Association. TED is a long-established civil society organization that provides scholarships to successful students with limited income, opens schools and dormitories with foreign language as the medium of instruction in both Turkey and abroad, builds scientific platforms to further the efforts to bring the level of education in Turkey on a par with the contemporary world standards, creates awareness about the problems of the education system in Turkey and its possible solutions, and contributes to the formulation of Turkish educational policies. As of now, TED has 38 schools, 2 representation offices, a student dormitory, an alumni office, and many sports clubs affiliated with its schools.

About

The graduates of the civil engineering program of TEDU should solve civil engineering problems within a greater societal context. They will have professional and ethical conduct and be able to apply knowledge, strong reasoning, and quantitative skills to design and implement creative and sustainable solutions. They should engage in lifelong learning in order to meet the forthcoming challenges facing the profession. Last but not the least, our graduates will exhibit strong communication, interpersonal, and resource-management skills as future leaders in the civil engineering profession. The first year of the undergraduate program is common to all engineering disciplines. The studies on mechanics, materials and applied mathematics begin in the second year. The third-year aims at building the basic theoretical background in major sub-disciplines of civil engineering. These include geotechnical engineering (behavior of soils, design of foundations), structural engineering (analysis and design of reinforced concrete and steel structures), hydraulics engineering (flow of water in pipes, open channels, water resources) and the general systems approach to engineering problems. The students are also exposed to construction engineering and management concepts at the introductory level in the third year. The senior civil engineering students will have a flexible curriculum. They will be offered mainly a variety of elective courses on planning and design of complex civil engineering systems.... [-]
