Looking for motivated undergraduate/graduate students, interested candidates please apply via email (hulya.cebeci@itu.edu.tr or cebeci.hulya@gmail.com)

Graduate students both at M.Sc. and Ph.D. levels are sought and scholarships are offered depending on the availability of the funds. Please check the home page for recent available scholarships via projects.

Applicants from engineering disciplines including, but not limited to, Aeronautical or Astronautical Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, Mechanical Engineering; if you think that your research interest fits into my topics, you may send your resume (in MS Word or pdf formats) to me. You can get more information from Research section about the projects as well.

For graduate students, opportunities are available through my collaborators to gain experience laboratories outside of Turkey. To the best of my abilities and depending on your efforts it might be possible for the candidate to spend a year abroad. Also you would be encouraged to join to conferences and meetings related to your research depending on the availability of funds.

Undergraduate students, please apply for the graduation projects in advance. The projects will be given starting from your 5th term. Feel free to email me about the graduation project details. The areas will span separation science, nanotechnology and composite materials as well as aircraft performance models and indexes. The short list of the topics are below:
