The Department subscribes completely to the mission and purpose of the Faculty of Engineering at Ege University, especially through its commitment to making high quality education available to the most diverse possible group of students, for instance through double Major and Minor degree courses to Chemical Engineering and Food Engineering students. Our Department believes in, and thus teaches, directly and by example, mutual respect and caring for each of its students, faculty and staff.
