Curriculum

A revised curriculum will be effective by the Fall 2016-17 term, with a transition period. The revision can be summarized in four items:

  1. A new course, MECH 310 - Numerical Methods (3-0), is added to the fifth semester. MAT 210 is a prerequisite for this course. Click here for a related flowchart in the transition period.
  2. The credits of both MECH 206 and MECH 307 have been decreased to (3-0) and MECH 307 is moved to the fifth semester. A new course, MECH 308 - Design of Machine Elements (3-0), is added to the sixth semester. MECH 307 is a prerequisite for this course. Click here for a related flowchart in the transition period.
  3. The credits of 2nd and 3rd year lab courses have been updated. Click here for a related flowchart in the transition period.
    1. MECH 220 - Mechanical Eng. Lab I (2-2): The number of the lecture hours are increased (transferred from old MECH 320).
    2. MECH 320 - Mechanical Eng. Lab II (0-2): There will be no regular class hours. Throughout the semester, a number of experiments will be conducted after having lab lectures. The format will be similar to MECH 420.
  4. MECH 303 is moved to sixth semester. MECH 303 will be offered in Spring semesters starting with Spring 2017-18.

If you have any questions regarding the revision, please send an email to Dr. Behzat Kentel: kbehzatatmetu.edu.tr
