19 Human Resources  World-class faculty with Ph.D. degrees earned from most prominent universities– majority (70%) from institutions abroad  METU undergraduate students received from the top 1% of 1,800,000 applicants taking the National University Entrance Examination every year  Highly qualified body of graduate students  Dedicated and well-qualified administrative staff  More than 110,000 committed alumni organized under 15 national and 21 international alumni associations METU STRENGTHS

20 A Research-Intensive University  Ratio of graduate students to total: 31 %  Largest share of research funding from The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK), Ministry of Science, Technology and Industry, EU Framework Program  Research revenues accounting for over 35 % of all METU expenditures annually (including all payroll costs)  Ph.D. Degrees granted per year: 260+ (2011) METU STRENGTHS

21 An International University  More than 1,800 international degree students at Ankara and Cyprus campuses  Approximately 1,000 international applications each year  All engineering programs approved by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (from 1992 on; latest 2010)  Extensive experience of collaboration with universities abroad and high degree of participation in Erasmus and Erasmus-Mundus programs (230+ Erasmus agreements)

22 METU STRENGTHS An International University  Premier university in Turkey in terms of EU Framework Program (FP) participation  51 completed and 8 ongoing FP6 projects with a budget of 178 million €  1 completed and 31 ongoing FP7 projects with a budget of 106 million €  METU researchers carrying out a wide spectrum of international research projects (FP6, FP7, COST, EUREKA, MEDA, NATO, NSF, UN, World Bank, Jean Monnet)

23 METU STRENGTHS An International University  Offering joint-degree programs in collaboration with universities abroad (4 undergraduate and 18 graduate degree programs with universities in US and Europe)  METU rated among the top world universities in several rankings (Times Higher Education, Leiden, Webometrics, URAP, and others)  METU ranked as the top university in Turkey in engineering and technology, basic sciences, and social sciences (HEAACT, QS, URAP, and others)

24 METU STRENGTHS An Interdisciplinary and Diverse Campus  Departments representing different disciplines located in close proximity on the same campus  Availability of “minor” and “double-major” programs, and elective courses from other disciplines  Wide spectrum of interdisciplinary graduate programs and research centers  Students and academics from all parts of Turkey and more than 80 countries  Wealth of sports, cultural, arts events as well as scientific and professional meetings (METU rated as “Turkish University with Richest Social Life” by Newsweek-Turkey magazine)

25 Success in all three mission components Create Knowledge – research and development Disseminate Knowledge – education programs Apply Knowledge – work with industry and society  METU Revolving Fund largest in the country in industry revenues  Long tradition of playing an active role in acquiring critical technologies and creation of key institutions in Turkey  METU Technopark as first science park in Turkey METU STRENGTHS

26 METU Technopark  260+ R&D companies; 900,000+ sq.ft. floor area; 200 acres land area  3,000 R&D workers; 3,500 employed in total  Incubation and pre-incubation centers  Extensive cooperative research between the faculty and industry  Support for establishment of new science parks in Turkey and Eurasia

27 A “Most Trusted Institution” Community outreach and social responsibility have always been part of METU mission.  Creation of 30 km 2 of forest area on METU Ankara Campus, an initiative that received the “The Aga Khan Award” (1995)  Student Associations leading the nation in community outreach programs  METU Science and Society Initiative – Science and Technology Museum  Most extensive student scholarship program in the nation  Public and private sector institutions seeking counseling and consultancy from METU as the most reliable source of information and solution partner  Independent public opinion surveys rate METU among the most trusted/relied upon institutions in the society METU STRENGTHS

28 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

29 Faculty Development Program (FDP) at METU

30 WHAT IS Faculty Development Program (FDP)?  Initiated in 2001, Faculty Development Program (FDP) is an 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

31 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

32 HOW? Structure of FDP FDP UNIVERSITY  Ph.D. candidates jointly selected by METU and FDP university  SPO or HEC providing funds per student SPO * or HEC ** (*) SPO: State Planning Organization (**) HEC: Higher Education Council METU Research Assistant Funding Young faculty member

33 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 Master’s and Doctoral studies

34 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. 5.After graduation, he/she is appointed as academic staff (assistant professor) in the FDP university HOW? Model of FDP

35 Faculty Development Program (FDP) Turkey  64 FDP universities (2011)  Nearly 500 Ph.D. candidates in progress (2012)  300 graduates to date (2012) Ardaha n Üniv. Map showing the initial network universities: 2001- 2005
