Engineering Pathway Semester

PATHWAY SEMESTER FOR ENGINEERING

This program will offer the prospective students who do not meet the minimum admission requirements to METU NCC’s engineering programs intensive courses in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry to bring them to the level where they can start the freshman year. As such, this program is not an alternative to the freshman year, rather it is a preparatory program for it.

The duration of the program is one semester (16 weeks) and will run both in the fall and spring semesters. Students who successfully pass this program will be able to register for the Bsc. Program of their choice.

Students are expected to satisfy the METU NCC English language proficiency criteria before getting enrolled into the program. Failure to do so will result in enrollment to the English Preparatory year.
