Program Structure
Ph.D. Mechanical Engineering is the most intense academic study. Karabuk University, Mechanical Engineering PhD Program, our universities to meet the needs of academics and industry in the country and the future level of quality to meet the need for a mechanical engineer with knowledge of mechanical engineering, shows great dedication and effort. Specialized branches, the majority of overseas education and training activities conducted by faculty members with doctorate degree, 25 doctoral programs mechanical engineering, mechanical, construction and manufacturing technologies and energy and enables you to have knowledge in the field of thermodynamics. Section on the basis of research activity and a large number of projects are underway. Program ECTS / ECTS successfully completed their programs, many under ERASMUS foreign mechanical engineering doctoral program, has established a connection.

Specific Admission Requirements
TURKISH STUDENTS The applicants who hold a Master's Degree (MSc) and willing to enrol in the Doctorate programme may apply to the Institute of Science with the following documents. • The CGPA of 85 out of 100 obtained from the Master Study (3.5 out of 4.00) • Sufficient score (at least 60 out of 100) from the Academic Personnel and Postgraduate Education Entrance Examination (ALES) organized by the Assessment, Selection and Placement Centre (OSYM) or the satisfactory Graduate Record Examination (GRE) score or Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) score equivalent to the ALES score of 60. Those candidates who do not hold the Master Degree must submit the score of 70 out of 100 from ALES. • The score of 55 out of 100 from the Foreign Language Examination organized by the Assessment, Selection and Placement Centre (OSYM) or TOEFL or IELTS score equivalent to the UDS score of 55. FOREIGN STUDENTS The graduate programme also receives foreign students if they meet the admission requirements. Foreign students must provide the following documents: • The recognized diploma of the Master Degree with an accepted CGPA • The certified copy of the official transcript • An acceptable ALES or GRE score. If the candidates do not have any of these scores, an entrance exam is given by the institute, and they must get the score of 70 out of 100. • An acceptable score from the Turkish language Learning Centre (TÖMER) with the level of A or B.

Recognition of Prior Learning
The rules for the recognition of formal prior learning are well defined. A student who is currently enrolled in a Doctorate Degree programme in the same discipline at another institution and has successfully completed at least one semester, may transfer to the Doctorate Programme at Karabuk University upon the recommendation of the department administration and with the approval of the Administrative Committee of Institute of Science if s/he submits all required documents before the deadline specified in the academic calendar. The decision taken will also include eligibility for exemption from some course requirements of the graduate programme. Students who transfer from another university must submit all the required and accepted documents to Institute of Science at Karabuk University. Recognition of prior non-formal and in-formal learning is at the beginning stage in Turkish Higher Education Institutions. Karabuk University is not an exception to this.
Graduation Requirements
The students who study in the programme are required to fulfil the following graduation requirements in order to get the doctorate degree (PhD): • The students must pass all the credited courses with at least a letter grade BB, together with non-credited courses with at least the letter grade G • They must obtain a total of 240 ECTS Credits. • They must achieve a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of at least 75 out of 100 or of at least 3.00 out of 4.00. • They must be successful in their seminar courses • They must prepare the doctorate thesis and defend it successfully. For further and detailed information, please see the relevant regulation:">
Qualification Awarded
The Doctorate Degree (PhD) in Mechanical Engineering (doctorate) awarded to the graduates who successfully fulfil all the programme requirements.
Qualification Requirements and Regulations
The doctorate programme consists of a minimum of seven courses, with a minimum of 21 national credits, a qualifying examination, a dissertation proposal, and a dissertation. The period allotted for the completion of the Doctorate programmes is normally eight semesters (four years). However, while it is possible to graduate in a shorter time, it is also possible to have an extension subject to the approval of the Institute of Science. The seminar course and thesis are non-credit and graded on a pass/fail basis. The total ECTS credit of the programme is 240 ECTS. A student may take undergraduate courses on the condition that the courses have not been taken during the undergraduate program. The PhD students are required to take the Doctoral Qualifying Examination, after having successfully completed taught courses. The examination consists of written and oral parts. The Doctoral Qualifying Committee determines by absolute majority whether a candidate has passed or failed the examination. Students who fail the Qualifying Examination may retake the examination the following semester. Students failing the Examination a second time are dismissed from the program. Students must register for thesis work and the Specialization Field course offered by his supervisor every semester following the semester, in which the supervisor is appointed. A dissertation supervisor who must hold the minimum rank of assistant professor is appointed for each PhD student. When the nature of the dissertation topic requires more than one supervisor, a joint-supervisor may be appointed. A joint-supervisor must hold a doctoral degree. Periodic monitoring of research work by a thesis monitoring committee is required to be awarded the Doctoral degree. A student, who has completed work on the thesis within the time period, must write a thesis, using the data collected, according to the specifications of the Thesis Writing Guide of Institute of Science. The thesis must be defended before a jury. The thesis jury is appointed on the recommendations of the relevant department chairperson and with the approval of the Administrative Committee of Institute of Science. The jury is composed of the thesis supervisor and 5 faculty members. Of the appointed jury members, up to two may be selected from another department or another University. The co-supervisor cannot be the jury member. The jury decides to grant/deny the Doctoral degree. A majority vote by the jury members determines the outcome of the thesis or examination. The vote can be for "acceptance", "rejection" or "correction". A student may be given, by a decision of the Administrative Committee of Institute of Science, up to six months to complete the corrections. The student must then retake the thesis examination.
Access to Further Studies
Graduates who successfully completed their doctorate degree may apply to both in the same or related disciplines in higher education institutions at home or abroad to get a position in academic staff or to governmental R&D centres to get expert position.
