Welcome to the Sabancı University Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences website. Our website reflects our commitment to teaching, research and outreach to the society at large.

In our Faculty, we educate professionals in today’s and the future’s occupations.

With the awareness of how doing cutting-edge research trickles down to excellent teaching practices, we provide the environment where our faculty members can carry field applications into the classroom. We at FENS form the interface to programs for undergraduate research, entrepreneurship activities, double-major and minor programs in a variety of well-crafted fields, creative design environment in the collaboration space, compulsory project-based engineering internships, design oriented and industry focused graduation projects. We thus ensure each of our graduates will have basic competencies while also carrying personalized differences that will make them unique World citizens. For our renowned faculty members who conduct world class research at the national and international arena, we search and establish the environments where they can continually improve themselves and their groups. Our students have the opportunity to develop in depth knowledge in their chosen fields by using the facilities provided by the Centers that have stemmed and developed from the research areas of our Faculty. We ensure the continued quality of our degree programs by contracting independent organizations which are experts in performing relevant evaluations. The most treasured product of our continued efforts; our graduates, are employed in the competitive environments of the foremost institutions in Turkey and all around the World, as well as themselves providing job opportunities.

I salute all our stakeholders who have thus far joined us in our mission of Creating and Developing Together, and I invite many more of you to participate in constructing a better future with us.
