The Engineering Faculty of Atılım University has a unique position among Turkish universities, with its new and popular engineering fields such as mechatronics, manufacturing, software, informatics systems, energy systems and automotive engineering in addition to the existing conventional engineering departments. Altogether there are thirteen departments in the faculty. Having been established in 1997, the faculty, with its relatively large number of departments, a strong and dynamic academic cadre, and modern educational and research facilities, has secured a reputable position in a very short time and now is competing with the famous public universities in Turkey.
