Composition

Regular members: Chair (N), seven teachers, two industry representatives, five students. Alternates: Three teachers and three students.

The faculty members should provide a broad representation of departments and subject areas in terms of each board’s educational responsibilities. No faculty member is permitted to be a director of studies, a programme director or a subject coordinator. At least one faculty member should have been appointed distinguished university teacher. Faculty and industry representatives are appointed by the Disciplinary Domain Board (for by-elections, by the Working Committee) on the recommendation of N, following consultation with the Deputy Dean of Education. The board appoints a deputy chair from among its members. The faculty’s senior faculty administrators and one representative of the Council for Educational Development (TUR) with the right to speak at meetings participate in the meetings.

Typically three minuted meetings are held per semester.

Programme Boards

Each programme has a programme board headed by the individual responsible for the programme.

The principal task of the programme board is to strengthen the quality of the programme and to advance its development, and also to function as an advisory body for the individuals responsible for the programmes with regard to their duties.
