The freshman year builds a foundation in mathematics, physics, chemistry, technical drawing and computing, and provides an introduction to the concepts of Civil Engineering with a course in each semester. In the sophomore year, students advance their fundamental engineering skills and start working on the foundations of Civil Engineering, including the basics of construction management and transportation. At the end of the sophomore year, OzU Civil Engineering students will have completed their first summer internships. During their internships, students may either opt to familiarize themselves and contribute to a specific sector at the industry or help faculty in their research projects.
In the junior year curriculum, students are provided with compulsory courses on structural analysis, reinforced concrete, soil mechanics, and foundation engineering. Students also start taking electives in their areas of specialization and have the opportunity to put their theoretical knowledge into practice in the civil engineering laboratories. At the completion of their junior year, OzU students will be as effective as entry level engineers, and they will have no difficulty finding the most suitable positions for their second summer internships. The junior year program also covers additional business topics and in-depth communications courses to develop students ability to effectively write and speak in English. The senior year curriculum is mostly allocated to advanced design courses as well as advanced elective courses to prepare students for the challenges in the field.
The Civil Engineering program offers a carefully selected set of tracks including structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, construction management and transportation. Structural engineering is a crucial field of engineering with a vast field of application, aiming to minimize casualties, property damages, and economic losses, particularly due to earthquakes. Ongoing seismic retrofitting and rehabilitation projects undertaken in several cities across Turkey, including Istanbul, naturally, give rise to a high demand for structural engineers. The geotechnical engineering, construction management and transportation tracks are also highly promising fields of civil engineering, dedicated to create affordable and sustainable solutions for rapidly growing cities. Our program takes pride is its distinguished faculty in each of its tracks.
Professor - Department HeadProfessor Ansal received his Diploma Engineering degree on Civil Engineering from Istanbul Technical University in 1969 and his Ph.D. on Geotechnical Engineering from Northwestern University, USA in 1977. He was promoted to Associate Professorship in 1982 and to Professorship in 1988 in Istanbul Technical University. He moved to the Earthquake Engineering Department of Kandilli Observatory and Earthquake Research Institute of Bogaziçi University in 2002. Since March 2012 he is working as full time professor in the Engineering Faculty of Ozyegin University. He served as visiting professor and researcher in different institutions in Norway, Portugal, Italy, Japan, USA and UK for extended periods of time during his academic career.
Atilla Ansal has been the Secretary General of European Association for Earthquake Engineering (EAEE) since 1994. He started the publication BEE in 2002 as the Chief Editor with Kluwer Publishers which later became part of Springer. BEE became one of the SCSI indexed journals and got its first impact factor in 2007. Ever since the 2007, the impact factor of BEE kept increasing and in 2011 was 1.559 which happen to be the second highest among SCSI Indexed earthquake engineering journals. Since 2010 BEE is being published as 6 issues per year. In addition he is the Editor in Chief of the popular book series by Springer on "Geotechnical, Geological and Earthquake Engineering".
He published over 200 papers in journals, conference proceedings, books and as research reports on soil mechanics, soil dynamics, microzonation, liquefaction, site amplification, earthquake hazard scenarios. He was the Graduate Advisor for 13 Ph.D.Thesis, 24 M.S Thesis.

Assistant ProfessorRagip Akbas finished his undergraduate and master's degree at Bogazici University Civil Engineering department. He obtained his PhD from Stanford University in 2003 in Civil and Environmental Engineering department with emphasis on computational methods for construction. In his doctoral dissertation, he defined a new geometry-based modeling and simulation approach for construction. He has extensive work experience in the industry, including a software start-up company in Silicon Valley, an engineering consultancy company, and the R&D department of Walt Disney Imagineering. Before OzU, he has held various roles at Autodesk, Inc., the leading software company for the Architecture/Engineering/Construction industry. He also held short-term postdoctoral and visiting scholar positions at Stanford University. His research interests include automation in construction,
modeling and simulation, machine learning and computer graphics applications in engineering.

Assistant ProfessorDr. Bulent Erkmen received his B.Sc. from Middle East Technical University, Department of Civil Engineering in 2001, and M.S. and Ph.D degrees in Civil Engineering from University of Minnesota in 2004 and 2008, respectively. Dr. Erkmen was working as a structure engineer consultant in Houston, TX for oil and energy industry from 2004 until he joined OzU. His area of specialty ranges in a broad spectrum including seismic evaluation of innovative concrete wall structural systems; seismic and blast evalaution and retrofit of existing structures; testing and evaluation of new construction materials such as self-consolidating concrete for prestressed bridge girder, presstress losses including concrete creep and shrinkage; short and long-term structural monitoring; performing large scale laboratory testing; and finite element analysis and evaluation of Generation III+ nuclear reactor shield building. His research focuses on seismic performance of precast concrete shear walls, self-consolidating concrete, fluid-structure interaction, and blast performance of structural systems.
Assistant ProfessorDr. Sengül received her B.S. and M.S. degrees in 2005 and 2006, respectively, from the Department of Mathematics in Bilkent University. She completed her D.Phil. in Mathematics at the Mathematical Institute in the University of Oxford in 2011. Her dissertation is on the analysis of nonlinear partial differential equations, more specifically, on the dynamics of microstructure in solids modeled by nonlinear viscoelasticity. Before joining Özyegin University she worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the Centre for Mathematics in the University of Coimbra. Her research interests also include gradient flows, calculus of variations and infinite-dimensional dynamical systems.
