METU STRENGTHS

An Innovative University

Numerous


first

s and innovations introduced to the Turkish
higher education and research area.
Several

examples
:


First Turkish university to use English as medium of instruction


First Turkish university built on a campus


First Turkish university to use department, semester, and credit system


First
Internet Service Provider (ISP) in Turkey (still serving as the DNS
authority)


Pioneering Technopark in Turkey


First Campus abroad (Northern Cyprus Campus)


Establishment of first University Central Lab


Creation of Faculty Development Program (FDP) network




METU STRENGTHS

Faculty
Development
Program (FDP)

a
t METU


WHAT IS

Faculty

Development

Program (FDP)?



Initiated in 2001, Faculty Development Program (FDP) is a
n

inter
-
university network
, with METU training faculty members
for other Turkish universities


Turkish universities of FDP network sending their research
assistants to METU for the duration of Ph.D. studies


After graduation from METU Ph.D. programs, assistants return
to their universities to work as faculty members


Turkish
State Planning Office (recently Turkish
Higher
Education Council)
provide
funds to support the
FDP





WHY?

Faculty Development Program (FDP)


Shortage of qualified faculty members throughout
the country


Sending students abroad for Ph.D. studies seen as a
costly solution with increased risk of

brain

drain



METU graduate degrees accepted as world
-
class
both in Turkey and abroad


Increased research and teaching collaboration
among the network universities


HOW?

HOW?

Model of FDP

1.
Research assistants of FDP universities nominated for METU
graduate studies by their university (at some universities
appointment as research assistant contingent on
acceptance by METU)

2.
Candidates jointly selected by METU and FDP university,
subject to
selection criteria
of METU

3.
FDP assistants become METU personnel «on a loan» by the
FDP university during their M
aster’s and
Doctoral studies



4.
During

the

graduate

study


Candidate receives support for short
-
term overseas visits (maximum 3
months) as well as short
-
term domestic visits


Candidate is required to spend long
-
term overseas visits (6
-
12 months)
as part of his/her research (at a top 500 university)


Candidate receives an Annual Project Support, which can be used for
equipment, expendible supplies, and software in addition travel
support.

After graduation, he/she is

ppointed as
