The standard duration of the bachelor’s study program is five years. The first students of the department graduated in 2000-2001. Every year approximately 70 students attend the education program in the department. After a preparation year for English language, the students attend courses in basic engineering in addition to the courses in basic textiles in the first year of the program. By the end of the first year, the students attend workshop practices. With the start of the second year in the program, the detailed courses on textiles are given and by the end of the second and third years of the program the students attend professional practices by working in vertically integrated textile factories. In the last year of the education program, in addition to the compulsory courses the students are able to choose courses from three selective groups of courses, which are the textile group, the science/math group and the social selective group. In this way the students are able to set up the most appropriate course outline for themselves according to their interest areas. Throughout the study program, courses in English are also available for the students: in the first year of the program the students take a course named “Technical English” to get acquainted with the technical textile terms and in their last year some of the selective courses from the textile and social selective groups are given in English.
The standard period of the Master of Science Program (M.Sc.) in Textile Engineering is two years. By the academic year 2012-2013, a total of 58 students have graduated from the MSc program and 19 students are continuing their program.
The standard period of the Doctor of Philosophy Program (Ph.D.) in Textile Engineering is four years. By the academic year 2012-2013, a total of 19 students have graduated from the PhD program and 19 students are continuing their program.
