Welcome to the Istanbul Technical University,
Situated at a crossroads between Europe and Asia, Istanbul is a city of the world; known as the “Cradle of Civilization”. From the breathtaking vistas of the Bosphorus, to the worldly acclaimed historical sites of the Topkapi Palace, Aya Sofia, and Blue Mosque – the city possesses a certain richness with its combination of unique geographical location and diverse cultural wealth.

Today, ITU’s 21,000 students study in one of 5 campuses (Taskisla, Gumussuyu, Macka, Tuzla, and Ayazaga/Macka) located throughout Istanbul. ITU strives to continue to expand its development as a dynamic, world university, with a mission to provide education, conduct research, and initiate technological developments as a university competing in a rapidly globalizing world.
