Department Chair's Message


Higher education in our country is undergoing a restructuring process in the 21st century. In the 2012-2013 academic year the Fashion Design Department, adopting this context, aims to breed intellectual youth, maintaining an educational approach consistent with the realities of changing global world and aware of the dynamic steps in the fashion industry with academic experience and personal skills that will build the competence to exit with success.

Our goal is to train candidates who are able to express themselves both verbal and creatively and also prove themselves with their original creations as fashion designer identities in the international industry platform.

Our students receive education from experienced academic staff who also trained most of the leading fashion designers in our country. They have the privilege of studying in our apparel, weaving, printing and handcraft studios equipped with professional technical team and with these practical skills they can quickly adapt to business life.

Fashion design curriculum is integrated with the Bologna process which was launched to create a common cohesion in the European Higher Education Area, European undergraduate qualifications, and Turkish Higher Education Qualifications. Our students not only gain the qualifications stated in the framework of Higher Education Qualifications but also get the ability of making career plans ahead and capture success in the field of fashion design business areas with sectorial brand collaborations.
