About Us

Design Studies graduate program has been established with the aim of uniting all design disciplines in order to make these more creative by interacting. The program commenced its facilities in 2006-2007 academic year, though advanced level research in Design Studies area is needed. That is why the doctoral program of Design Studies is going to admit students in 2013-2014 academic year for the first time.

It is aimed to make further research and acknowledge the innovational updates on environmental design, interior architectural design, industrial design, fashion and textile design, visual communication design.
