Part II. Overall Statement of Justification (Summary)

State the purpose of opening the program in Eastern Mediterranean University from an academic perspective. This part should be a concise summary of the information supplied in the remaining parts of this form and information supplied in the New Program Proposal - I.

(Fill in this part LAST)



Considering the strengths with regard to the academic staff of the Faculty of Architecture, the infrastructure of the Faculty and the University; the opportunity with regard to the increasing demand for Industrial Designers in the field of design, it can safely be claimed that the Faculty of Architecture is ready by all means to provide quality education in the field of ‘Industrial Design’ beside architecture and interior architecture.

Considering the rapidly changing internal and external circumstances as well as the highly competitive environment of design education, diversification of education provided would forward the Faculty to a much more esteemed level.





Part III. Program Features

Program Goals
State the overall purpose and the major goals of the program by providing a clear expose of the program’s teaching intentions, i.e., writing a brief statement of what the program intends to deliver, how the program will ensure educational effectiveness, identifying the core concepts and any rationale.

The proposal of the under-graduate program of the Department of Industrial Design has been prepared regarding the existing potential of the Faculty and the University in terms of academic staff and the infrastructure. Therefore, for a long term the establishment of this new department would not create any burden on the University. On the contrary, it would provide the opportunity of taking share from the world-wide increasing demand in this discipline.

  • The first year of the curriculum will be same as the first year of architecture and interior architecture. Such an approach enables the efficient allocation of time and human resources; the strengthening of the inter-departmental cooperation and collaboration and facilitates the transfer of students if they want to.




  • The program allows student to develop their knowledge and skills in various basic subjects related to Industrial Design as well as their own areas of interests due to broad number of elective courses provided. Students are supposed to take 3 elective courses from any department in the university, 2 elective courses from other Departments in the Faculty of Architecture and 4 electives from their own Department.







Program Outcomes
List statements that describe what the students will gain or be able to do after completing the program. The outcomes should reflect what the students will have gained from their participation in the coursework and other experiences which the program provides.

The graduates of the Department will have knowledge about many different subjects related to product design. The wide number of elective courses will allow them to foster their knowledge and abilities in their own fields of interest as well. On the other hand, various projects in design studios will prepare them to deal with a wide range of problems related to product design. These will allow the graduates of the department to work in different areas related to design in different scales.
Multi-dimensional program of the department which proposes that all students take some courses from other departments in the university prepares them for collaborating with other professions in their future careers.
Two summer training courses in the program will prepare students to experience working in the factory as well as in the design office before they get graduated.




Unique Features or Strengths of the Program
Identify the unique features or strengths of the program which will make it superior to similar programs in other institutions.

  • The common first foundation year in Faculty of Architecture allows all students to choose the area of design they wish to work after the first year when they have a broader knowledge of all related design fields.

  • A two-stepped “conditional advancement” system is introduced / applied in the new curriculum:

CONDITIONAL ADVANCEMENT 1: to be able to start 5th semester (to be able to register any courses from the 5th semester, all 1st and 2nd semester courses should successfully be completed

CONDITIONAL ADVANCEMENT 2: to be able to register IDES 402 Graduation Project in the last semester, 6th and all other previous semester courses should be successfully completed








Specializations, Concentrations, Streams or Options within the program
Specify any specializations, concentrations, streams or options within the program.







Statement of Originality (Duplication Check)
State clearly that the proposed program is not a major duplication of, or will not produce any substantial overlap with, any existing program(s) at the University. Include a brief discussion of differences of the proposed program from similar programs with minor overlap.

There is no similar program in the Eastern Mediterranean University.

Graduation Requirements
State the graduation requirements specific to the proposed program. Exclude university-wide applications like CGPA requirements

The students should take and pass all 152 credit courses in the curriculum. Besides they should fulfill successfully the requirements for 2 proposed summer practices and 6 SPIKES.




Compliance with the Requirements of Accreditation Agencies
Justify the compliance of the proposed program with accreditation agencies like YÖK and ABET.

Distribution of the courses- basic; supportive; general education; history and elective- throughout the proposed program has been done parallel to the suggestion of NASAD, the institution that gives accreditation to similar programs in the USA. Such an approach would enable the program to take accreditation in the future.
