Türkçe
Programs Required for Accreditation Application

Programs listed below are required to apply to MÜDEK by February 02, 2015, if they want to be evaluated by MÜDEK for accreditation in the 2015-2016 accreditation cycle.
  • Undergraduate and masters programs seeking for MÜDEK accreditation for the first time.
  • Programs previously evaluated by MÜDEK with accreditation terms expiring on September 30, 2016. Programs evaluated by MÜDEK in 2013-2014 cycle requiring an "interim evaluation" in 2015-2016 accreditation cycle are included in this category.
Programs without any application until February 02, 2015 will not be evaluated in the 2015-2016 accreditation cycle and accreditations of those programs whose accreditations will expire on September 30, 2016, will be terminated as of that date.

A different application schedule will be used for those programs that are in the process of being evaluated in the 2014-2015 accreditation cycle and will end with a "Show Cause" decision in 2015. The schedule for "Show Cause" evaluations is given below.

Programs Eligible for Application for Accreditation and their Relevant Institutions

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

Programs applying for accreditation should include the word "engineering" in their title.

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

If a program applying for accreditation 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 normal program applying for accreditation and if this second education program has graduates, then these programs shall be evaluated according to the following principles:
  • The application should be made for both normal and second education programs.
  • The institutions should prove that each of such normal and second education 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 with the next evaluation of their normal education programs, concurrently.
