Institute of Advanced Technology and Research and Development
We envision an institute that:
Can play a leading role in research and development of advanced technologies in
a wide range of multidisciplinary areas encompassing all fields of engineering and
Can lead in the development of new multidisciplinary graduate level studies in the
frontiers of engineering education, science and technology for the dissemination
The mission of the institute is to:
ITAGE’s Targets and Goals
Create and disseminate knowledge and develop advanced technologies in a manner that
impacts industrial practice and society.
Educate students so that they have the knowledge in cutting edge engineering technology
and science to gain the skills for continually enhancing this knowledge and provide
leadership in industry and academia.
The recently established Advanced Technologies Research and Development Institute
is actively working on uniting R&D activities within the university. To this
effect the Institute is preparing a master plan to serve the entire EMU research
community. Currently we are developing guidelines and procedures on
Current research activities include:
- Consultancy schemes (e.g., short courses with 1-3 day durations mostly to be scheduled
in between academic semesters - in February and Summer).
- Hands-on workshops (e.g., (i) efficient use and maintenance of high-tech medical
equipment - can be carried out with local collaboration from medical centers under
the supervision of an invited expert, (ii) applications of Thermodynamics, (iii)
wireless Internet, (iv) intelligent office etc.).
- A database for possible sources of local, regional and international funding (procedures
related to application and evaluation of funding institutions and organizations
- UN related, EU based, TUBITAK, multi-national companies, private companies etc.).
Local and international partnerships.
Establishment of active channels between ATRDI and the faculties and departments
are being implemented for an effective and efficient dissemination of information
and diffusion of knowledge. The goal is not to minimize the grey areas but to completely
eliminate them by making the active channels fully transparent.
Specialized expert-level divisions are being established to serve global high-tech
industry. Establishment and number of such divisions, however, will depend on the
collaborating, high-flying staff. A fixed and a cumulative rewarding/bonus schemes
are also aimed to be implemented to encourage staff participation and retention.
