The university was formally founded on 21 July 2010 as Turkey’s first foundation supported State University.AGU admitted its first students in 2013 - 2014 Academic Year. Education is being conducted at the site of Turkey’s first industrial complex, which is being transformed from a place of great historical significance to be a notable place of education.
AGU will admit undergraduate students to its eight different programs in School of Engineering, School of Life and Natural Sciences, School of Architecture, School of Leadership and Management, and School of Humanities and Social Sciences. New undergraduate programs will be added in near future. AGU will also project interdisciplinary graduate programs in its academic departments.

The Student Village buildings include comfortable and furnished apartments with kitchen, shared living room, and bathrooms. Each apartment can house 4 to 6 students. The WiFi is of course available in every on-campus location.
