Industrial Engineering Department

General Information

Eskişehir Osmangazi University (ESOGU) is a state university that dates back to the foundation of the Faculty of Medicine, the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture and the Faculty of Letters and Applied Sciences in 1970. These pioneering faculties became the founders of Anadolu University in 1972. These three faculties together with Eskişehir School of Health, Eskişehir Vocational School of Health Services, Institutes of Health Sciences, Metallurgy, and Applied Sciences, newly founded Faculty of Economic and Administrative Sciences and Institute of Social Sciences have formed Eskişehir Osmangazi University on 18 August 1993. Afterward other faculties and higher schools were founded.

ESOGU has now become one of the leading universities in central Anatolia with 11 faculties, four vocational schools and five graduate schools that are on seven campuses.

The main purpose of the faculty is to educate engineers and architects who are competent, practical thinkers and creative in their field and by this means are favored in the world of business.

In addition to numerous occupational laboratories, shared physics and chemistry laboratories are also available in the faculty.

Departments of Computer, Electrical and Electronics, Civil, Geological, Chemical, Mining, Mechanical, and Metallurgical, Materials Engineering and Department of Industrial Engineering serve in Meşelik Campus; Department of Architecture serves in Bademlik Campus. In addition to occupational classes, there are technical and social elective courses available in the departments of the faculty. 

The graduates of the faculty may not only work freelance, but also work as engineers, architects, and researchers in their branches either in public or in private sector, or they may have an academic career.

IE Department was founded as a part of the Academy of Economical and Commercial Sciences in 1975. First students were admitted in 1977. In 1981, the Engineering & Architecture Faculty were joined at Anadolu University. There were two majors in the department named as Industrial Engineering and Operations Research until 2015. Now, there are four majors named as Human Machine Systems, Production and Service Systems, Quality Management and Quality Assurance System, and Operations Research.

Our aim is that the graduates will attain competence in professional practice of industrial engineering. In particular, to demonstrate a thorough understanding and working knowledge of mathematics, physical science, economics, and basic engineering principles to solve industrial engineering problems and to independently use appropriate techniques, skills, and tools to identify, formulate, analyze, and solve industrial engineering problems and to design a system, component, or process to meet an identified need.

Graduated students take part in different departments of manufacturing and service sectors (such as quality, planning, etc.) and they successfully apply professional knowledge gained from coursework and internships.


Upon successful completion of the program students are awarded a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering.

3.Level of Degree


4.Admission Requirements

The general admission requirements both apply to Turkish and foreign students.

5.Recognition of Prior Learning

The recognition of previous learning, vertical, horizontal, and transitions in the University take place within the scope of the regulation which is 'Transition Between Associate Degree and Undergraduate Degree Programs, Regulation on Basis of Double Major, Minor and Credit Transfer Between Institutions’, and determined by the Higher Education Institution. 

Students from non-formal educational institutions in Turkey may claim course exemptions and they are exempted from courses approved. In recognition for some of the computer and foreign language courses, at the beginning of each academic semester exams of exemption are organized. Students who take the exam and pass are exempt from the relevant courses in the curriculum.


6.Qualification Requirements and Regulations

All courses in the student's program must be successfully completed. The student should not have any FF, DZ or YZ grades in order to successfully complete the courses. In this program, the student must complete a minimum of 240 ECTS credits and a minimum GPA of 2.00 out of 4.00.

All students studying at Eskişehir Osmangazi University Industrial Engineering Department are required to perform at least 40 workday internships in total, including workshops, management and business during their 4 years of education.

7.Program Profile

Based on the opinions from internal and external stakeholders and the four main components of the Industrial Engineering program, the following four Program Training Objectives were established:

  1. Adequate knowledge in mathematics, science and engineering subjects pertaining to the relevant discipline; ability to use theoretical and applied information in these areas to model and solve engineering problems
  2. Ability to identify, formulate and solve complex engineering problems; ability to select and apply proper analysis and modeling methods for this purpose
  3. Ability to design a complex system, process, device or product under realistic constraints and conditions, to be able to achieve the desired result; ability to apply modern design methods for this purpose. Realistic constraints and conditions may include factors such as economic and environmental issues, sustainability, ethics, health, safety issues, and social and political issues, according to the nature of the design.
  4. Ability to work efficiently within interdisciplinary and multi disciplinary teams; ability to work individually and ability to communicate effectively in Turkish, both orally and in writing; knowledge of a minimum of one foreign language.

8.Program Outcomes

  • Sufficient knowledge of engineering topics related with mathematics, science and Industrial engineering; an ability to apply theoretical and practical knowledge on solving and modeling of Industrial engineering problems.


  • Ability to determine, define, formulate and solve complex industrial engineering problems; for that purpose, the ability to select and use convenient analytical and experimental methods.


  • Ability to design a complex system, a component and/or an engineering process under real life constraints or conditions, defined by environmental, economical and political problems; for that purpose the ability to apply modern design methods.


  • Ability to develop, select and use modern methods and tools required for industrial engineering applications; ability to effectively use information technologies.


  • In order to investigate industrial engineering problems; ability to set up and conduct experiments and ability to analyze and interpret experimental results.


  • Ability to work effectively in inter- or multi-disciplinary teams; proficiency of interdependence.


  • Ability to communicate in written and oral forms in Turkish/English; proficiency in at least one foreign language.


  • Awareness of life-long learning; ability to reach information; follow developments in science and technology and achieve continuous self-improvement.


  • Understanding of professional and ethical issues and taking responsibility.


  • Awareness of project, risk and change management; awareness of entrepreneurship, innovativeness and sustainable development.


  • Knowledge of actual problems and effects of engineering applications on health, environment and security at global and social level; an awareness of juridical results of engineering solutions.

9. Employment Opportunities for Graduates  

Industrial engineers may serve in all areas of economic life such as hospitals, industry producing goods or services, governmental or non-govermental enterprises Examples of these systems include automobiles, refrigerators, textiles, biscuits, paper, machinery, aircraft health care institutions, educational institutions and local authorities and so on.

Industrial engineers work on how to operate such systems in the design and establishment phases as well as how to optimize existing resources (human, machine material). These studies, in particular, include finding the best solutions as circumstances allow, by taking into account the human dimension of the system.

10. Transition to Graduate Programs

Upon successful completion of bachelor's degree candidates who obtain a valid score from the ALES or equivalent exams and have sufficient foreign language knowledge can apply for graduate programs in their own field or related areas.

11. Exams, Assessment and Grading

Assessment and Grading methods for each course is defined in detail in Curriculum.

12. Graduation Requirements

Graduation requirements is described the "Qualification Requirements and Regulations" section.
