Undergraduate diploma (or higher)
Individuals with B.S. degrees in biology, chemistry, physics, and related engineering disciplines should apply for graduate study in the CMSE Program.
The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English / Turkish.
At least 2 reference(s) must be provided.
It is required that the applicant add at least 2 reference(s).
A motivation letter must be added to your application.
One of the most important parts of your application is the motivation letter. Its goal is to introduce your background and support your application. In short, its goal is to answer the question:
Write in a clear and logical manner: remember, the way you write and present yourself says a lot about you. Do not plagiarize as this will mean automatic disqualification from the evaluation process.

Graduate education in Computational Science and Engineering (CMSE) at Koç University is offered through an interdisciplinary program among the Departments of the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Engineering.
In this program graduate students are trained on modern computational science techniques and their applications to solve scientific and engineering problems. New technological problems and associated research challenges heavily depend on computational modeling and problem-solving. Because of the availability of powerful and inexpensive computers model-based computational experimentation is now a standard approach to the analysis and design of complex systems where real experiments can be expensive or infeasible.
Graduates of the CMSE Program should be capable of formulating solutions to computational problems through the use of multidisciplinary knowledge gained from a combination of classroom and laboratory experiences in basic sciences and engineering.
In addition to course work, students are engaged in thesis research. Every student is supervised by an advisor. The M.S. Program with Thesis option requires that the students successfully complete a minimum of 21 credits (with 7 courses) beyond a Bachelor’s degree. In addition to the credit courses, students must complete the non-credit courses; CMSE 590 Seminar, ENGL 500 Graduate Writing, and TEAC 500 Teaching Experience.
