The architects trained in the Architecture department which was founded together with the departments of Painting and Sculpture under the structure of “High School of Fine Arts”, the root of today's Architecture Department, caused architecture to be mentioned in western sense in our country. There is a half-century long gap between the Department of Architecture of the university and the institution having started education of architecture afterwards. The Architecture Department has taken an important role in training the staff who takes part in architecture education as well as in making Turkish Architecture reach to a contemporary level.
The distinctive and prominent characteristics of the department making difference between it and the other equal institutions is the balance of art-technique and the programs followed to make this composition. This education policy was the most important potential power when the academy was changed into the university. Today, the Department of Architecture with its education of 126 hours per week is the institution that gives the most diffused architecture education in our country.
