At the College of Engineering of Koç University we perform research at the frontiers of science and technology with an inter-disciplinary perspective. While our research focus is on engineering design, our projects are frequently multi-disciplinary and are usually at the interface with physical sciences, mathematics, life sciences, and business administration.
