    Ottoman Empire
    Considered as the world's second institution of higher learning specifically dedicated to engineering education, Istanbul Technical University (ITU) has a long and distinguished history which began in 1773. ITU was founded by Sultan Mustafa III as the "Imperial Naval Engineers' School" (Ottoman Turkish: Mühendishane-i Bahr-i Hümayun)(Turkish: Devlet Donanma Mühendishanesi), and it was originally dedicated to the training of ship builders and cartographers. In 1795 the scope of the school was broadened to train technical military staff for the modernization of the Ottoman army. In 1845 the engineering function of the school was further widened with the addition of a program devoted to the training of architects. The scope and name of the school were extended and changed again in 1883 and in 1909 the school became a public engineering school which was aimed at training civil engineers who could provide the infrastructure for the rapidly developing country.

    Modern Turkey
    By 1928 the institution had gained formal recognition as a university of engineering which provided education in both engineering and architecture. In 1944 the name of the institution was changed to Istanbul Technical University and in 1946 the institution became an autonomous university with architecture, civil, mechanical, and electrical engineering faculties.


    Maçka Campus With its long history of 234 years, its modern teaching environment, and well-qualified teaching staff, Istanbul Technical University today is the personification of the engineering and architectural education in Turkey. Istanbul Technical University not only played a leading role in the modernization movement of the Ottoman Empire, but has also maintained its leadership position in the changes and innovations taking place in the construction, industrialization, and technological realms during the modern days of the Turkish Republic. Engineers and architects trained at Istanbul Technical University have played significant roles in the construction of Turkey's highways, bridges, dams, factories, buildings, energy production plants, communication networks, and in the development of its villages, towns, and cities. Alumnis also played a significant role in Turkish politics (Turkish presidents - Turgut Ozal, Suleyman Demirel and Necmettin Erbakan were all ITU graduates) Since its establishment in 1773, Istanbul Technical University has managed to keep itself up-to-date by following the technological developments which have occurred worldwide. The university offers its students an educational environment which is rooted in tradition and yet open to the very latest in modern education techniques and settings. By promoting strong international relationships, this public university also offers its students truly universal educational opportunities which are not limited by national boundaries.

    Campus
    ITU is a public (state) university. It has five campuses, which are located in the most important areas of Istanbul. Among ITU's five campuses, the main campus of Maslak is a suburban campus, covering a total area of 2.64 km². The University Rectorate, swimming pool, stadium, along with most of the faculties, student residence halls and the central library of ITU are located there.

    Another suburban campus of ITU is the Tuzla Campus. It serves the Maritime Faculty students and faculty members. It is located in the Tuzla district of Istanbul, which is a dockyard area.

    One of the three urban campuses of ITU is the Taşkışla Campus. It was a military barracks in the Ottoman era. Taşkışla is one of the most renowned historical buildings in Istanbul.

    Gümuşsuyu (Mechanical Engineering Faculty) and Maçka (Management Faculty) campuses are close to Taksim Square, and they are also among the important historical buildings of Istanbul.

    ITU has more engineering programs (21 as of 2005) accredited by ABET (U.S. agency recognized for accrediting science, technology and engineering programs- or in other words suny programme) than any other institution in Turkey.

    Instruction is both in Turkish and English (circa 70% Turkish and 30% English).

    Mustafa Inan Library
    ITU Mustafa Inan Library has approximately 533,000 books, 500,000 volumes of book periodicals and 6000 rare Ottoman/Latin books. ITU Library has access to international libraries and online databases. It has the largest collection on technical materials (science and engineering) in Turkey. It is Turkey’s most contemporary and technically rich library. ITU Mustafa Inan Library is the central library of the six libraries and coordination center of the library services of the Technical University. ITU Library Services' history goes back to 1795, the printing house of the Mühendishane-i Berri-i Hümayun of Ottoman Empire (Ottoman Empire's engineering school for territorial military applications - the third oldest technical university of the world).

    Triga Mark-2 Nuclear Reactor and Supercomputer
    ITU's nuclear reactor of Triga Mark-2 is in the Maslak campus. It is located at the Energy Institute. There are also legends which say that the ITU Lake is the cooler for this reactor. Furthermore, ITU has a supercomputer and this computer is the only super computer in top 500 that Turkey has.


    Arı Technopolis
    ARI Teknokent (Technopolis), which is located at the Ayazağa Campus, provides companies with researching, technology development and production opportunities at the university, in cooperation with the researchers and academicians. The technopolis have two buildings:Arı-1 and Arı-2

    National High Performance Computing Center
    NHPCC, is located at the Ayazağa Campus. It is the national center for high performance computing. The super computer of this center is one of the world's top 500 list super computers (239th).

    Atlethics
    Having a suburban campus like Maslak has created the opportunity of building many sports areas. Ayazağa Gymnasium is the center of sports in ITU. Ayazağa Gymnasium also has a stadium with a seating capacity of 3500 for basketball and volleyball matches. A fitness center is also located there.

    Basketball matches are among the most important sports activities in ITU. ITU Basketball Team, which won the Turkish Basketball League Championship for 5 times, currently plays in the Turkish Basketball League's 2nd Division (TB2L). Ayazağa Gymnasium is the home of the ITU Basketball Team. Needless to mention that the students are the team's biggest supporters.

    Despite the successes in basketball, the football team of ITU plays in the amateur league. A football (soccer) stadium is also located in Ayazağa, where the football team plays its matches.

    Tennis courts and an indoor olympic swimming pool, which is opened in May 2007, are also available in the Ayazaga Campus. An open-air swimming pool serves the ITU faculties.

    Other sports clubs/activities in ITU are: Badminton, fencing, diving, winter sports, dancing and gymnastics, tennis, paintball, aikido, athletics, mountaineering, bridge, swimming, cycling and triathlon, skiing, parachuting, American football, korfball, handball, iaido, capoeira, wrestling and archery.


    Social Life
    ITU offers many options to students who like doing extra-curricular work during their studying years. The most popular ones are Rock Club, Cinema Club, EPGIK. Also ITU has an option for those who like to organise events and socialise with people from various European countries in the Local Board of European Students of Technology Group which had 40 members in 2007. Despite all these, it can still be a little quiet in the campus from time to time because students can choose the city of Istanbul over the campus life.


    Housing
    ITU has a capacity of 3000 studeng housings:Lakeside Housings, IMKB Dormitory, Verda Urundul, Ayazaga Dormitory and Gumussuyu dormitory.
