The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

Industrial engineering students learn about optimizing complex systems, processes and organizations. This field of study combines engineering, science and math. Additionally, students may gain knowledge of subjects such as statistical analysis, quality control and operations management.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.

The Industrial Engineering Department not only provides basic engineering knowledge but also equips students with information technologies and English skills. Through industrial training, small projects in various courses, and the graduation project, our department presents flexibility for students to concentrate on the special areas they are willing to study. Our curriculum is focused on Information Systems Engineering, Production Engineering and Operations Research.

Globalization of the world economy has been increasing customer expectations, creating demand for goods and services with better quality at affordable prices. Hence, manufacturing and service companies have started to seek for human resources with engineering and managerial skills. Industrial Engineering, as a discipline emerging from this point of view, contributes to production and service systems using analytical problem-solving techniques, information technologies, and certain social sciences. In the frame of these references, Industrial Engineering’s scope of research and education is to search the ways of increasing quality and productivity by using scarce resources effectively. So, it provides opportunities for good positions in manufacturing industries, health services, communication, food sector, education, logistics, banks, consulting firms, public firms, even planning parts of social projects....

PhD in Industrial Engineering and Operations Management

Portable design and operation of modern industrial and service systems require integration of human, material, equipment and financial resources. In recent years this integration has become tighter due to the inclusion of information technology and resulted in more complex systems. Industrial Engineering research focuses on quantitative analysis, synthesis, and management of such complex systems. The alienated faculty members come from the Industrial Engineering department of the College of Engineering, the Operations and Information Systems group of the College of Administrative Sciences and Economics, and other related fields. Our research areas are diverse, including Logistics, Supply Chain Management, Service Operations, Production Systems, Stochastic Processes, Financial Engineering, Mathematical Programming, Data Mining, and Bioinformatics. The programs are built on the basic methodologies of operations research and their applications in manufacturing, distribution and service industries. Graduates of the M.S. program have been placed in respectable Ph.D. programs in North America, Europe, and Turkey as well as various professional positions in the industry since 2003. The first graduates of the Ph.D. program were produced in 2009 and they are pursuing their academic career either through a post-doc program or by joining respectable universities in Turkey or abroad. While our M.S. program provides a strong foundation for academic studies in terms of Industrial Engineering knowledge as well as developing research skills, our Ph.D. program provides advanced education emphasizing the discovery of new scientific knowledge through extensive research experience. The aim is to produce competitive research results and educate the... [-]

The PhD course prepares researchers with high scientific profile, culturally oriented to engineering applications. They will be able to develop knowledge, new methods of investigation and design & research activities in public or private bodies, also with managerial competences. The course is organized in two curricula: “Information Engineering” and “Mechanical Engineering, Naval Energy and Production”.

The activities concern design methods, theoretical analysis, soft-computing and advanced experimentation. During the first year the teaching activity regards the strengthening of knowledge in basic scientific disciplines and the organizational aspects of the research. It is personalized on both the previous study plan and the research topic of the PhD student. Still in the first year, the state of the art in the discipline of interest is analysed and the main research theme is identified. In the second and third years the individual themes are developed, with the possibility of a period of stay at research institutions of international relevance.... [-]
