Message From Our Rector

As Maltepe University, we are proud to continue approximately 40 years of tradition of Marmara Education Institutions on strong physical, academic and institutional basis. We believe in the power of education and knowledge to make a difference; and ever since we were founded in 1997, we have been continuing to raise young people who are aware of this power.

We have accepted it our main concern to think of social interaction and serving the community along with our educational and research activities, which are the essential issues of universities. We do believe that the power of knowledge to make a difference, and education together shall contribute to raising individuals with strong national, moral and ethical values, and who are of high sense of responsibility and power of initiation, as well. We consider the non-governmental organizations, local administrations and industry as important partners of our efforts to make a difference. We see internationalization as one of our priority areas, and we believe that our international collaborations offer us the opportunity to re-evaluate the “local” by associating it with the “universal”.

We have adopted a student-oriented approach which is open to change and supports innovation.  We believe in the importance of offering our students new scopes that help them realize their own potential and inspiring them for innovation and exploration while getting them ready for their professional lives. This approach, which has become our priority, is reflected in the interdisciplinary and multi-stakeholder research and projects of our strong academic staff, as well as our approach that takes education beyond the classroom.

We benefit from the physical facilities of our University campus located in the heart of nature to improve efficiency, interaction, personal and academic development and enhance joint production. We also believe that together with our students we have created an environment that "lives" and gives the feeling of "my university" pride.

Our goal is to continue making a difference towards “a better future” together with our students, our graduates, our academic and administrative staff.
