How many years should I study to accomplish an aeronautical engineering major in Turkey?

In Turkey, studying an aeronautical engineering major takes four years. If the student did not acquire a (Turkish) language certificate while studying this major, the period will be extended to another year which is known as a “language preparatory year”.

What are the conditions for studying aeronautical engineering in Turkey?

Admission to Public Turkish Universities depends on passing the “Turkish Yös” test, or the “American SAT” test, in addition to providing a high school transcript with a minimum of grades that varies from one university to another. They also require language proficiency proof or applying in a language preparatory year. 

In private universities in Turkey, the conditions for studying aeronautical engineering are providing a high school diploma with a minimum grade average of 70% and a language proficiency proof.

When choosing English as a language of study, it is required to have a Tofel certificate. If you choose to study in Turkish, you must provide a Tömer certificate.
