Institute profile:

Eskişehir Osmangazi University (ESOGU) is a state university that was initially founded as Medical & Engineering Faculties in 1970. Currently, ESOGU has 5 campuses including 7 faculties which offer 25 different undergraduate and 10 associate degree programs in 3 vocational schools. Having more than 14,000 students and the commitment to the highest standards in teaching and research, ESOGU has become one of the leading universities in the Central Anatolian region of Turkey. International and European cooperation play an essential role in ESOGU's strategic development plan. ESOGU is willing to extend the number of our partners for the academic year 2005/2006, in both student and staff mobility. Large financial support by the Comission of Scientific Research of the university in recent years is particularly encouraging the scientific avtivities.Department of Geological Engineering is probably the most energetic division with respect to international papers published and the national and international projects realized in the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture. Main subjects of the projects range from monitoring the surface and running water pollution to morpho-tectonic evolution of certain tectonically active areas of the central and western Anatolia. The department has organized three national symposiums on the issues of geomorphology, active tectonics and geochemistry in the last four years.
