General Introduction

The Woodworking Industrial Engineering Department, which is the only department within the Vocational Technology School of our university, was established in 1973 under the Hacettepe University Rectorate in order to train industrial engineers with planner, researcher and managerial qualifications needed by woodworking/furniture organizations which aims to produce products in accordance with world quality and standards. The program has been the only undergraduate department in Turkey where graduates of industrial vocational high schools or technical high schools, who graduated from woodworking and furniture-decoration departments, can receive engineering education related to their profession, from its establishment until 2009. In addition to this feature, since 1995, all university candidates, whether they graduated from vocational high schools or not, have shown great interest in the program...



Since its establishment in 1973, radical changes have been made within the scope of the status and administrative commitment of the Vocational Technology School of our University (which has Woodworking Industrial Engineering Department). The start of education is based on two-year associate degree programs as in some other engineering departments. In 1975, the department was converted into a 4-year undergraduate program in engineering, including a one-year English preparatory class before the undergraduate program...
