Yatch Design Master Programme

In paralel to rising importance of seamanship in recent years, yacht production has increased all over the world. Together with few countries, Turkey is in the front rank especially in the production of luxury yachts. Although new shipyards, marinas are opened, maganizes are published and many fairs organized every year, there is a lack of human resource needed in design field. Yacht design program has been opened to fill this gap and to educate the students as experts who are able to propose innovative designs, to develop materials, to figure out details for the sector. The program accepts students from the related departments of both engineering and design faculties and collaborates with many national and international individuals and institutions.
