With this vision, the mission of the Electrical and Electronics Engineering programme from Bilkent University is to provide our graduates with the knowledge and skills needed for high quality engineering work as well as advanced engineering research and to equip them with a broad intellectual spectrum in order to prepare them for diverse and competitive career paths.
As individuals and as members of a team, our majors will have successful careers in the academic environment, industrial or government organizations. They will be able to pursue advanced degrees in diverse fields and continue professional development. We prepare our graduates to be able to function in national/international/multi-cultural corporations and organizations.
