FACULTY OF AERONAUTICS AND AEROSPACE
Established in 2012 with the aim of supplying the increasing aeronautics needs of our country and world, our faculty now has the departments of Aeronautics and Astronautics Engineering and Pilotage. Our faculty is now giving service at the previous Dentistry Faculty building of our university. The required substructure works are continuing rapidly in order to start education in the related departments. The planning phase of the faculty building has been completed and it's about to start the construction. There will be offices for the departments, classrooms, and 6 practicing areas (laboratory and workshop) in the building that will be constructed on 20000 square meter area in Gaziantep University Central Campus. Besides the faculty building, a protocol has been signed with DHMİ (General Directorate of State Airports Authority) with the aim of establishing a hangar for our faculty, and the project works of constructing a plane hangar in Gaziantep Airport are still continuing. The maintenance of the planes that will be bought for the Pilotage Department will be carried out in this hangar and also will be a place of practice for students. The negotiations about buying simulator and training planes for the use in Pilotage Department are still continuing. The works for establishing the other departments in our faculty are underway.
With the aim of making the education that will be given in our faculty recognized in national and international areas, attempts will be made to get the necessary authorisations from the institutions giving the required authorisation either in the field of engineering or in the field of aeronautics.
