1. About the University As the roots of Materials Institute, the Materials Unit was established in the campus of Istanbul Technical University in 1968, and the Chemical Engineering Research Unit in the current TÜBÄ°TAK campus in Gebze in September 1973. Environment Group within the unit was separated in 1991 to form the Environmental Engineering Department. In 1983, Chemistry Department was established in the Fundamental Sciences Research Institute and it was subordinated to TÜBÄ°TAK MAM in 1996. In February 1996, Materials and Chemistry Technologies Research Institute (MCTRI) was established, joining the Departments of Materials, Food and Chemical Engineering which had been active under the Vice Presidency of Technological Research. In August 1996, Chemistry Department which had been active under the Fundamental Sciences Research Institute joined MCTRI and in January 1997, Food Department separated from MCTRI to form a separate institute. In October 2004, Chemistry Department separated and MCTRI transformed into Materials Institute; and Chemistry Institute joined Environment Institute to form Chemistry and Environment Institute. 2. About Academics/campus/affiliated colleges Vision: To become an internationally recognized research and development institution pioneering the materials science and technology and contributing to the improvement of Turkish Industry’s technological capabilities. Mission:To contribute to science, technology and economy of the country by conducting applied R&D projects in the field of materials science and technology, in accordance with global developments and the needs of Turkey, in collaboration with national and international organizations with an interdisciplinary approach. Strategic Objectives: To keep the leading position by continuously improving the scientific and technological infrastructure, To sustain and improve the international recognition by conducting research and development projects at universal standards, To improve the technological capabilities and competitive power of Turkish industry by promoting applied research and development projects in cooperation with private sector and SMEs, To conduct researches and develop technologies in critical and high priority fields like national defence, which can not be undertaken by private sector, To develop innovative products and processes in the field of advanced materials technologies through a multidisciplinary approach. 3.
