Programs Required for Accreditation Application

In 2011-2012 accreditation cycle, programs listed below are required to apply to MÜDEK if they want to be evaluated by MÜDEK.

  • Programs seeking for MÜDEK accreditation for the first time.
  • Programs previously evaluated by MÜDEK with accreditation terms expiring on September 30, 2012. Programs evaluated by MÜDEK in 2009-2010 cycle requiring an interim evaluation in 2011 are included in this category.

Late applications after the deadline will not be accepted and accreditations of those programs whose accreditations will expire on September 30, 2012, will be terminated at that date.

A different application schedule will be used for those programs that are in the process of being evaluated in the 2010-2011 accreditation cycle and will end with a "Show Cause" decision.

Programs Eligible for Application for Accreditation and their Relevant Institutions

An evaluation application can be filed for bachelor's degree engineering education programs of the higher educational institutions in Turkey and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, as recognized by the Council of Higher Education of Turkey.

The name of any applying program should include the word "engineering."

Any program applying for the first time should have graduates before the date of application.

If an applying program provides options to the students to complete the program, then each such option should meet all the evaluation criteria.

If there is a second education (program) implemented by the institution for a program applying for accreditation, then this program shall be evaluated according to the following principles:

  • The application should be provided for both education programs.
  • The institutions should prove that each of the programs meets the MÜDEK criteria separately.
  • Second education programs, which did not undergo evaluation since they were not offered or had no graduates at the time when the evaluation of the corresponding normal education programs was taking place, should apply concurrently with the next evaluation of their normal education programs.

If an institution that seeks MÜDEK accreditation for its programs has multiple campuses, each campus with different physical and administrative characteristics shall be considered as a different institution during the evaluation process.
