History

The Faculty of Architecture has emerged from Zafer College of  Engineering  and  Architecture established 1966 and Yükseliş College of Engineering and Architecture established in 1967, Anadolu College of Chemical Engineering in 1968. These three colleges were merged under the name of Ankara College of Engineering and Architecture and convened by Ankara Academy of Economics and Management Sciences in 1971. Later in 1973, the college was separated from the Academy and became an academy itself under the name of Ankara State Academy of Engineering and Architecture. In 1982, based on the law that dictated reengineering of Gazi University, the academy merged with Gazi University and was renamed as Gazi University Faculty of Engineering and Architecture. In 2010, the faculty is divided into two faculties as Faculty of Engineering and Faculty of Architecture. Based on its long established approach of architectural education, our department has been providing compulsary and elective courses on architectural design, construction technologies, history of architecture, theories of architecture, conservation and restoration. Our priority in education implies newly graduated students to be architects capable of working in private offices and construction sites without  difficulties, coherent to free market requirements, equipped with concrete and universal knowledge and having principles and ethical values together with self confidence in vocational knowledge.
