An Innovative University
Numerous “first”s and innovations introduced to the Turkish
higher education and research area. Several examples:








First Turkish university to use English as medium of instruction
First Turkish university built on a campus
First Turkish university to use department, semester, and credit system
First Internet Service Provider (ISP) in Turkey (still serving as the DNS
authority)
Pioneering Technopark in Turkey
First Campus abroad (Northern Cyprus Campus)
Establishment of first University Central Lab
Creation of Faculty Development Program (FDP) network
Faculty Development Program (FDP)
at METU
WHAT IS
Faculty Development Program (FDP)?
 Initiated in 2001, Faculty Development Program (FDP) is an
inter-university network, with METU training faculty members
for other Turkish universities
 Turkish universities of FDP network sending their research
assistants to METU for the duration of Ph.D. studies
 After graduation from METU Ph.D. programs, assistants return
to their universities to work as faculty members
 Turkish State Planning Office (recently Turkish Higher
Education Council) provide funds to support the FDP
WHY?
Faculty Development Program (FDP)
 Shortage of qualified faculty members throughout
the country
 Sending students abroad for Ph.D. studies seen as a
costly solution with increased risk of “brain drain”
 METU graduate degrees accepted as world-class
both in Turkey and abroad
 Increased research and teaching collaboration
among the network universities
HOW?
Structure of FDP

FDP
UNIVERSITY
 Ph.D. candidates jointly selected by METU and FDP university
 SPO or HEC providing funds per student
Funding
SPO* or HEC**
(*)
(**)
SPO: State Planning Organization
HEC: Higher Education Council
HOW?
Model of FDP
1. Research assistants of FDP universities nominated for METU
graduate studies by their university (at some universities
appointment as research assistant contingent on
acceptance by METU)
2. Candidates jointly selected by METU and FDP university,
subject to selection criteria of METU
3. FDP assistants become METU personnel «on a loan» by the
FDP university during their Master’s and Doctoral studies
HOW?
Model of FDP
4. During the graduate study
 Candidate receives support for short-term overseas visits (maximum 3
months) as well as short-term domestic visits
 Candidate is required to spend long-term overseas visits (6-12 months)
as part of his/her research (at a top 500 university)
 Candidate receives an Annual Project Support, which can be used for
equipment, expendible supplies, and software in addition travel
support.
5. After graduation, he/she is appointed as academic staff
(assistant professor) in the FDP university
Faculty Development Program (FDP)
Turkey
 64 FDP universities (2011)
 Nearly 500 Ph.D. candidates in progress (2012)
 300 graduates to date (2012)
