MSc. in Energy Engineering (EEP), established in 1997 by Dr. Gürbüz Atagündüz who is a Prof. of Mechanical Engineering. Dr. Atagündüz had been the Director of the Program until his retirement in 2003.
The EEP is a multi-disciplinary program dedicated to enhancing energy literacy and deepening multi-disciplinary energy knowledge, particularly among the leaders of tomorrow’s science and technology communities.
The EEP at IZTECH fosters collaboration among industry, government, academia, non-governmental organizations, and the public to address the technological, economic and social aspects of sustainable energy development and use.
It serves as a focal point for energy activities throughout the Institute. In addition, EEP brings together collaborating faculty and staff in 18 departments to carry out multi-disciplinary research that leads to holistic assessment of problems and solution options in meeting demand for energy and resource production and use. There is a strong focus on engineering and science based activities in key technology, modelling and monitoring arenas.
EEP strives to contribute to improvement of environmental decision making at all levels through better application of scientific and technological knowledge. In partnership with industry, government and civil society, EEP carries out research for the implementation of practical effective solutions.
