HistoryEdit

Dicle University's early history is linked with Diyarbakır Eğitim Enstitüsü which was chartered on 1962.[4][5] The Faculty of Medicine, which was opened in 1966 as a part of Ankara University, forms the nucleus of the present Dicle University. With the opening of the Faculty of Art and Sciences in 1974, Dicle University was officially founded including two faculties. The Faculty of Dentistry was founded in 1976 and the Faculty of Agriculture in 1981. The name Diyarbakir University was changed to Dicle University in 1982. The Faculty of Engineering and Architecture, The Faculty of Law, The Faculty of Education, three graduate schools and five schools were opened as new institutions of the University.

Today there are 11 faculties, four schools, 11 vocational schools, three graduate schools, one state conservatory, and eight research and application centres under the administration of the university.[6]

Dicle University is at the centre of the GAP.[7]
