Get your seat before it's too late.

The year 2023 represents a milestone for our country and our university. Istanbul Technical University will celebrate its 250th anniversary, and the Republic of Turkey will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2023. Undoubtedly, the historical intersection is a source of praise and pride for our university, which has played an extremely significant role in the development of Turkey from education to science, technology to industry, sports to art and politics, and is positioned among the world's well-established universities.

With these feelings and thoughts, preparations were started early with an elite and hardworking staff under the leadership of our Rectorate to celebrate the 250th anniversary of our institution. In line with the studies carried out, many activities have been planned as well as various academic organizations.

The first of the comprehensive academic organizations will be held in the spring of 2022 with the title of ``250 Years of Engineering and Architecture in Turkey``. The symposium, which aims to examine the history of engineering and architecture in Turkey and introduce it to the public, also foresees to discuss engineering education, which started with Mühendislikhane-i Bahr-i Hümâyun in 1773, both in our country and in the world.

We invite our graduates, students, all universities, and the academic community to this symposium.

Prof. Dr. İsmail Koyuncu
