Kocaeli University is a large and respected family with 19 faculties, 4 colleges, 16 vocational schools, 4 institutes and 1 conservatory.
While 56,000 students study, 2,330 teachers work, including 288 professors and 221 associate professors.
It should be noted that quality and employment oriented decisions are made rather than quantity.
Maritime School, School of Health Sciences, School of Tourism, School of Physical Education and Sports, School of Aviation and Space Sciences were transformed into faculties .
At the Arslanbey campus, where the Faculty of Agriculture and Natural Sciences is located, about 200 decares of unused and unused land has been transformed into a production area for medicinal and aromatic plants.
Finally, the Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences (İİBF), created in 1994, was closed with the presidential decree of March 3, 2022 and numbered 5252.
With the presidential decree published in the Official Journal of March 4, 2022
Two faculties, namely the Faculty of Business Administration and the Faculty of Political Science, were established.
Rector Prof. Dr. Sadettin Hülagü announced on his social media account that 2 new faculties have been established, saying, “Good luck and good luck to our new faculties, Kocaeli and our university.”
In the meantime, the distribution of staff has been made to the Faculty of Business Administration and the Faculty of Political Science, which were created after the closure of the EFES, which was created 32 years ago, with the appointment of deans.
The distribution of the 5 sections was as follows;
A: The Department of Business Administration was attached to the Faculty of Business.
Two: Departments attached to the Faculty of Political Science; Economics, public administration, international relations, labor economics.
Meanwhile, YÖK determined the quotas for each of the 2 new faculties and notified the OSYM.
Students enrolled in the closed Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences will retain their current rights until they graduate.
For now, education and training in 2 newly established faculties will continue in the existing building of Umuttepe campus.
After the completion of the building, the construction of which is announced by the Municipality of Körfez, the Faculty of Business Administration will be transferred to Hereke.
The current building will be used by the Faculty of Political Science.
KOÜ Rector Prof. Dr. Sadettin Hülagü appointed the founding deans of the newly created faculties.
As founding dean of the Faculty of Political Science, the director of the Institute of Social Sciences Prof. Dr. Recep Tarı was nominated.
Recep Hoca, born in Izmit in 1959, completed his primary, secondary and secondary education in Izmit, graduated from the Faculty of Business Administration of Atatürk University.
He also participated in the creation of the Department of Economics in 1994.
TEACHER. DR RECEP TARI
I wish Professor Recep every success in his new position.
Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Business, Prof. Dr. I don’t know Muhsin Halis. But
I know that he graduated from Atatürk University, Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences, worked in Sivas Cumhuriyet, Gaziantep, Sakarya, Kyrgyzstan Turkey Manas Universities, and worked as Dean in Bolu Abant İzzet Baysal Faculty of Communication.
I also wish success to Muhsin Hodja in his position as Dean.
I think my professor Sadettin solved the problem of the dean quietly, without a fight, by appointing Recep Tarı to the Faculty of Political Science and Muhsin Halis to the Faculty of Business Administration.
TEACHER. DR. MUHLIS HALIS
Another mission; teacher. Dr. After Recep Tarı became the dean of the newly established political science faculty, he was appointed director of the Institute of Social Sciences, which was released.
The new director of the institute, Pr. Dr. I do not know Virtue Burcu Çam, but
I know that you are very attached to the dean of the new faculty of business administration and that you are seeking the rector through your well-known acquaintances.
Like the cliché “We could not make pants, give a shirt”, which was used many years ago, Burcu Hodja could not sit in the chair of the dean of the Faculty of Business Administration, but had to be satisfied with the Direction of the Institute of Social Sciences!
TEACHER. DR. Virtue Sign Pin
After the closure of the Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences (İİBF) and the completion of the establishment of the Faculty of Business Administration and the Faculties of Political Science, a decision was made regarding the Faculty of Engineering.
According to the decision adopted by the KOÜ Senate, the review of which is still ongoing in YÖK, the Faculty of Engineering will retain its legal personality by preserving many departments.
Today, as software and digitization stand out, the Faculty of Computing, which will include the Department of Software, the Department of Information Systems of the Faculty of Technology and the Departments of Software and Computing of the Technopark, will be established on the Yeniköy campus.
DEAN OF THE FACULTY OF AGRICULTURE
While the founding dean was appointed to the newly established faculties of political and business administration at KOÜ, the deputy dean of the faculty of agriculture Prof. Dr. Abdullah Çağlar has resigned.
Vice-Rector Nilgün Fığlalı was appointed to replace Abdullah Hoca, who held the position of Dean of the Faculty of Agriculture, which was established by presidential decree published in the Official Gazette on February 6, 2021.
It is said that Abdullah Hoca asked the dean’s office about the allegation that he was involved in an incident investigated by YÖK.
In the meantime, it is alleged that the associate professor named in the investigation file objected to the decision and was found not guilty by the court.
We wonder about the decision that YÖK will take in the next few days and if Abdullah Hoca will resume his position as dean.
