Faculty of Architecture
In order to train civil architects and engineers Hendese-i Mülkiye Mektebi was founded in 1884. Afterwards, it was renamed as Mühendis-i Ali and later it was restructured as Yüksek Mühendis Mektebi. With the law on universities dated 1944, it was transformed into Faculty of Architecture in the scope of İstanbul Technical University. Ranked among one of the most important and rooted institutions, it contributes to İTÜ’s “research university” identity within its undergraduate and graduate programmes.
