Faculty of Mines
Istanbul Technical University Faculty of Mines was opened on 1 March 1953. With the founding faculty members who were educated in Germany, it was the first time in Turkey that a Mining Engineering education was given, and it was in Istanbul Technical University.
The objective is to train mining engineers who respect work safety, ethical values and the environment during the processes carried out in order to fulfil the raw material demands of several sectors of the industry.
Our primary aim is to train engineers who can evaluate the processes of searching, finding, operating, improving the quality of natural resources and the related problems with a scope of the environment and engineering; and who can contribute to the process of the establishment of basic engineering structures.
Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering
The key target of the department is to train engineers who can teach about and conduct research on the drilling, determining reserves, production, modeling, transportation, storing and retail processes petroleum, natural gas and geothermal energy. Also, our other concerns are to give our students well established perspectives on political and legal issues such as health, preservation, environmental protection and the relevant cultural atmosphere.
In the programs offered by ITU Geophysics Engineering, pioneering projects that can present answers to the scientific and engineering problems of the world are hosted and the resulting knowledge and experiences are used to benefit the public and our students.
Mineral Processing Engineering
Briefly, mineral and coal processing means the steps of making the produced natural resources available for several fields such as metallurgy, iron and steel, glass, ceramics, cement, detergent, construction and paint industries and energy production.
