description of organisation

AGU is the first state university in Turkey to have, as part of its constitution, legal provision for support by a foundation whose entire efforts are solely dedicated to the work of the University. AGU has set itself the aim of attracting brilliant faculty members and the brightest students. All the academic work of the University will be in English; all its programs will conform to international standards but at the same time they will bear the stamp of the university’s own character. Graduates of AGU will be typified by the ability to learn, to think, to research, to work in an interdisciplinary fashion, and to lead.

At AGU, proficiency in English is fundamental; part of the language preparation year’s studies for each student will take place in an English speaking country. Furthermore, English education will continue after students have started studying in their own faculty, playing an important part in the academic life of the student and in the social life of the campus.

In all academic programs, they will be practical elements as well as conscious attempts to connect theoretical knowledge with the real world; in this manner, the university will aim to produce not employment seekers but employees and even employers.

For those students who aspire to a more academic path, there will be significant opportunities to join research groups, even in their early undergraduate years. In this way AGU students will not only be exposed to high-quality teaching but will also benefit from opportunities to take part in research with academics from a range of disciplines to work both in their own field and in an inter-disciplinary fashion, while still undergraduates. Furthermore, the University places a strong emphasis on its postgraduate programs of research. Through the efforts of its academics experienced in national and international research projects, AGU aims to produce learning and knowledge which is of value to a wide range of stakeholders. It is one of AGU’s primary goals to work with industry particularly local industry to develop high-quality, and effective, projects in industrial R&D.
