"Arrangements and Procedures as for the Foundation of METU, Law No 6887" was enacted on January 29th, 1957. Finally, "Foundation Act No 7307", which sets forth the particular standing of METU and describes the conditions rendering METU as a juridical entity, was enacted on May 27th, 1959.

Middle East Technical University's presence brought about new methods and introduced innovations to Turkish higher education system manifesting METU as a pioneer of modern education nationwide. In its earliest years, part of METU was located in a small building that belonged Social Security Office of Retirees at Kizilay's Müdafaa Street and the other section was located in the barracks behind the TBMM (Turkey's National Grand Assembly). In 1963, the University moved to its current campus location which is the first university campus of Turkey.

In 1956, the first academic program to start education was the Department of Architecture. Then in spring semester of 1957, Department of Mechanical Engineering launched its academic program. At the onset of 1957-1958 academic year, the Faculty of Architecture, Faculty of Engineering and Faculty of Administrative Sciences were established. In 1959, the tasks undertaken to establish Faculty of Arts and Sciences were completed. Faculty of Education launched its academic program in 1982. Today, there are a total of 47 undergraduate programs in five faculties of METU.

There are 152 graduate programs available in Graduate Schools of Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, Informatics, Applied Mathematics and Marine Sciences Graduate Schools. Marine Sciences conducts the academic program studies at İçel-Erdemli.

The language of instruction at METU is English. METU School of Foreign Languages takes the initiative to teach English to students at Preparatory School.

Owing to the quality academic education that emphasizes merit and excellence in scientific, cultural and intellectual studies as well as owing to the accomplished and qualified METU graduates, the University has become one of the distinguished and respectable institutions of Turkey.

METU is a world class university for Science and Engineering degrees. It has a very nice campus. A unique atmosphere with some unique spirit. Most buildings are brick or concrete with no paint... to stand harsh Winter conditions, I guess.

METU is at a higher level than world class universities in Science and Engineering undergraduate education. It is one of the best or maybe even the best (in the world, I am not exaggerating) in some fields. At master's degree level it can compete with world class universities. For PhD level, METU is at a lower level than the world class universities except some isolated cases. This change in quality is due to the financial issues. Undergrad does not require too much money, but more dedication, ambition and high quality students etc.. When we go towards PhD , these are not enough anymore and money needs to be added to the list.

"Binalarınızı Yıkarım" diyen birilerinin binaları yıkarsa ancak suyla sabunla yıkayacağı üniversite.. :lol:
O yüzden başlığımızı tamamen siyasi ve rant amaçlı sonuçsuz kalacak saçmalıkları ile doldurmayalım. ;)

Teşekkürler..

Bu arada ODTÜ'nün gerçekten güzel bir havası var, hem kampüs olarak hem de bir bütün olarak... Kampüs meselesine girecek olursak, evet binalar mimari harikası değil belki, tarzı da bir çok insanı açmayabilir ama 60-70'lerin mimari akımlarını, mimari elemanlarını hala iyi durumda binalarda görebilmek ayrı bir hava katıyor, diğer bölümleri bilemiyorum ama İnşaat Müh. baya bakımlı ve güzel bir bina, okulun kütüphanesine de hastayım. :D Bir de yatsınamayacak bir şey var ki o da bozkırın ortasında gerçekten bir cennet yaratmışlar, eşine az rastlanır insan eliyle oluşturulmuş huzur veren koca bir ormanı ve bitkisel çeşitliliği barındırıyor..
