Chairman's Message

The METU Industrial Engineering Department is the first of its kind in Turkey since 1969. In addition to their academic research, the IE faculty is active in sponsored research projects conducted for the industry and the government. Based on this experience, the Department is well placed to offer education over a wide range, to take part in joint research projects and to engage in all types of national and international academic work.
