History of Department

The history of Gazi University Chemical Engineering Department is based on "Private Anatolian Chemical Engineering School" opened in 1968. In 1971, this college merged with "Private Yükseliş School of Engineering and Architecture" and "Private Zafer School of Engineering and Architecture" and joined the "Ankara State Academy of Engineering and Architecture" under the name of "Ankara Academy of Economic and Commercial Sciences". "Ankara State Engineering and Architecture School (ASEAS)" separated from Ankara Economic and Commercial Sciences Academy and took the name of "Ankara State Engineering and Architecture Academy (ASEAA)" established in 1973.

Our department continued its education and training activities under the roof of the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture established within Gazi University with the law enacted in 1982. In 1993, a Evening Education program was established within the Department of Chemical Engineering and two different programs, Normal Education and Evening Education, were carried out. Since 1993, at least 30% of English lessons have been taught in both programs.

The Engineering and Architecture Faculties were separated by a law enacted in 2010, and our department continues its education and training within the Faculty of Engineering ever since. The Evening Education program was abolished with the decision of the Council of Higher Education in 2014, and a new program was replaced in 2015, in which 100% of the courses are given in English. Our program, which is given in English at a rate of 30%, has been accredited by the Association for Evaluation and Accreditation of Engineering Education Programs (MÜDEK) from 2004 to 2020.

Published in the Official Gazette No. 25037 on March 3, 2003, G.U. in accordance with the Double Major Second Undergraduate and Minor Program Regulations, there are also double major and minor programs. Erasmus program was started in 2003 and in this context, our students benefit from the program to study at universities with bilateral agreements. Likewise, students from abroad come to our department in this context. With the Farabi program, they have the opportunity to attend universities in Turkey for a certain period of time (1 or 2 semesters) within bilateral agreements.

The education and training staff of two different programs in our department consists of 36 faculty members, 5 lecturers and 9 research assistants who have specialized in different subjects at universities in Turkey and abroad.
