ITU School of Maritime
|Dean||Prof. Dr. Oguz Salim Sogut|
The history of the faculty dates back to the "Merchant Navy Boarding School" (Turkish: Leyli Tüccar Kaptan Mektebi), which was established on December 5, 1884 at Heybeliada, Istanbul as a part of the Ottoman Naval Academy with the aim of strengthening civilian navigation and seamanship in the country. During the Republican era, it was renamed as the High Maritime School (Turkish: Yuksek Denizcilik Okulu) and continued its activities in the following decades. Finally, in 1992, it is reorganized as Faculty of Maritime and tied to the Istanbul Technical University.
The school has two departments:
- Department of Maritime, Transportation and Management Engineering
- Department of Ship Machinery and Management Engineering
The school possesses four vessels for training purposes:
