    Faculty of Education

Electrical Electronics Engineering (PhD)

1. General Information

Eskişehir Osmangazi University Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department was founded in 1980 as a part of Eskişehir Academy of Engineering and Architecture. In 1982, following the establishment of Anadolu University, the department was joined College of Engineering and Architecture of Anadolu University. The graduate program was initiated in 1984. Due to the extensive growth of Anadolu University, several colleges and departments including the Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department were separated from Anadolu University to form Osmangazi University in 1993.

With twelve full-time faculty members, Electrical-Electronics Engineering Department offers both Master's of Science (M.S.) and Doctoral (Ph.D) graduate programs inElectronics, Telecommunications, Control Systems, Electrical Installations, Electrical Machinery, Circuits and Systems, Electromagnetic Fields and Microwave Technique subfields. The department also contributes to the Rail Systems graduate program.

The Electrical-Electronics Engineering Department has contributed hundreds of engineers to the industry. These engineers are employed by private industries as well as government companies within the country as well as worldwide.


2. The Degree Conferred

The students who complete the program successfully are awarded Mastrer’s of Science (M. S.) and Doctorate (Ph.D) degrees in Electrical-Electronics Engineering.


3. Degree Level



4. Admission requirements

Number of students to be admitted for each subfield is determined and announced by the request of the faculty members before the semester begins. Scores of nation wide exams ALES and ÜDS/KPDS and student GPA are used to calculate a score for admission. ALES is similarto the GRE exam has 50% weight while ÜDS and KPDS are foreign language exams with 25% weight. The GPA of the student has the remaining 25% weight in the admission score. Graduates of Electrical, Electronics, Electrical-Electronics, Electronics and Communication Engineering departments are admitted to the graduate program directly.  The graduates of Control Systems, Computer, Communication and Mechatronics Engineering departments and Mathematics and Computer Science departments are required to take some electrical engineering undergraduate courses before the admission.

Transfer from other universities is also possible


5. Recognition of the previous education

Some of the graduate level courses taken from other universities may be counted for the degree program upon the request of the student and the approval of the advisor and the program director.


6. Conditions and Rules for the Degree Qualification

The Master’s of Science program requires seven regular courses totaling 21 credits, a seminar course, a specialization field course and thesis work. The seminar, specialization field course and the thesis work have zero local credits and pass/fail grades. A student must receive a passing grade (AA through DD, or YT) for each course in the program and must not have any FF, DZ or YZ grade for any course he or she has taken. In the program at least 90 ECTS credits and a minimum 3.00 out of 4.00 grade point average are also required.

The doctoral program that is based on a master’s degree requires eight regular courses totaling 24 credits, a qualification/comprehensive exam, a thesis proposal, a specialization course and thesis work. Those who have only B.S. degree must take sixteen regular courses totaling 48 local credits. The qualification/comprehensive exam, thesis proposal, specialization exam and the thesis work have no local credits and have pass/fail grades. A student must receive a passing grade (AA through DD, or YT) for each course in the program and must not have any FF, DZ or YZ grade for any course he or she has taken. In the program at least 90 ECTS credits (beyond Master’s degree) and a minimum 3.00 out of 4.00 grade point average are also required.


7. Program Educational Goals

To train Engineers have M.S. and Ph.D. degrees who

1)    have the advanced level knowledge to do analysis and design in Electrical-Electronics Engineering subfields,

2)    can effectively use the hardware and software that are related to their subfield,

3)    can adapt the models, techniques and processes that have been developed in their subfield to new applications or develop new models and methods,

4)    have the ability to follow developments in their profession and awareness the need for life-long learning,

5)    have the ability to work individually and in groups, a keen sense of professional responsibility and an awareness of professional ethics,

6)    have social consciousness and self-confidence,

7)    can follow the developments and publications in technical fields, summarize the developments, deduct the essential points of such works, make use of such knowledge, and report such works as well as his or her work within an ethical and professional frame.


8. Program Outcomes


Ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, basic sciences and engineering in expertise level in Electrical-Electronics Engineering and other related areas.


Developing new and original ideas and methods; ability to develop innovative/alternative solutions in system, component or process design.


Ability to design, plan, manage, finalize, and implement innovative multi-disciplinary works 


Ability to present and publish academic studies in any academic environment


Ability to use a foreign language at an advanced level, ability to communicate in oral and written forms.


Ability to make critical analysis, synthesis and  evaluation of ideas and developments in the area of work.


Advanced level of Professional and ethical responsibility.


9. Employment Possibilities for the Graduates

Engineers who graduate from the Electrical-Electronics Engineering graduate program can be employed by state and private establishments in the fields of electric power generation, electric power distribution, electrical machinery, control systems, communications and computer systems, and alike. These engineers can take part in design, installation, operation, sales, and maintenance activities. Graduates with a Ph.D. degree can also be hired as professors and researchers by universities worldwide.


10. Obtaining Higher Degrees

Students who successfully complete the M.S: degree program can pursue doctoral degrees in the country or abroad. In Turkey, those who wish to get an M.S. or doctoral degree are required to take a special exam called ALES (similar to the GRE exam) and one of various foreign language exams. Minimum ALES and foreign language scores may be required for the admission for graduate programs.


11. Examinations and Assessment

The examinations, assignments and assessment for each course is described in the course information sheet. Courses with 3 or more local credits have two midterm exams and a final exam.  For some courses, a project may be assigned to be considered as a midterm exam.


12. Graduation Requirements

Graduation requirements are as explained in the section titled “Conditions and Rules for the Degree Qualification”.


13. Type of Instruction (Full time, e-learning)

Full-time attendance for the regular courses is required.
