High school / secondary education (or higher)
All High school Transcripts/Grades (corresponding to the 3 or 4 high school years)
The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English / Turkish.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
This is an easy procedure where the Provincial Department of Education in Istanbul (and in some cases a Turkish Embassy/Consulate) will provide the ‘Equivalency Letter’ (in Turkish ‘Denklik Belgesi’) certifying that the foreign High-School diploma is equivalent to its counterpart, the Turkish high school diploma.
You must take verified copies of the entry qualification documents along with you when you finally go to the university.
If available, a record of scores for one English Language Competency Examinations (for example TOEFL or IELTS or Cambridge Certificate) . The English Language requirements are detailed below.
IELTS: Minimum Score 6.0
If the future international student did not obtain a sufficient score from one of the English Language Competency Examinations, or did not take any test, then the student will be required to take the Istanbul Bilgi University -Institutional Exemption Test (BILET) upon arrival/registration.
Those who fail the Institutional Exemption Test must register to the English Preparatory Program at Istanbul Bilgi University before beginning their academic studies.
This preparatory year is not included in the total number of years of study required for graduation. The annual tuition fee for the English Preparatory Program is 8 100USD (taxes included).
Civil Engineering has been around for centuries with most of the basic methods of manual construction. Increasing population and urbanization reinforce the importance and popularity of this discipline in our times as well. At the same time, advances in computer science and automation have prompted civil engineering education to incorporate new methods and tools. While the focus is still to provide solutions to physical problems using mathematics, increased utilization of computer technologies is becoming an integral part of civil engineering education programs.
Therefore, the BİLGİ Civil Engineering program extensively utilizes computerized tools in designing, planning, computation and simulation to prepare its graduates for their professional careers. The BİLGİ Civil Engineering program aims to provide an education that will produce engineers equipped with a solid foundation in civil engineering who will have the ability to produce research-based information and products to serve the society. Empowering our civil engineering program with the resources of BİLGİ Engineering Faculty and with İstanbul Bilgi University’s strong background in social sciences, we strive for creating a family of civil engineers who are creative and self-confident, who can follow advancements in technology and incorporate them into professional life and, moreover, who have an understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities.
Natural disasters, especially earthquakes, are recurrent events in our country. Therefore, to produce graduates with the breadth and depth of knowledge in civil engineering sufficient to design structures that are resistant to earthquakes and other natural disasters is a leading objective of our program, in which our mission is to provide a sense of social responsibility, awareness of environmental problems and the capability of creating environmentally friendly and energy-efficient designs.
