Department of Maritime Engineering was founded in September 1986 with the aim of training the required specialized human resources for marine industries. Until September 1995, only B.Sc. degree program was offered in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering. The initial mission of the department was to provide students with real-world experience in various aspects of the marine engineering. Later, in September 1995, two M.Sc. degree programs namely “Hydromechanics and Propulsion Systems Engineering” and “Marine Structures and Manufacturing Engineering” were inaugurated. Subsequently, in September 2006, the department started its Ph.D. program and 5 Ph.D. students were admitted. The educational and research activities of the department are conducted by 14 academic members. Currently, more than 1000 students have graduated from this department and there are about 400 active students in the department. So far, the department has been able to have considerable contributions to the national and international scientific communities and has significantly increased the specialized human resources majoring in Maritime Engineering.
