The interdisciplinary design of the academic programs offered by the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences (FENS) and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) prepares students for the diverse challenges of modernity and technology.

All students experience a two-tier common program that exposes them to a broad variety of disciplines and approaches.

 

Students declare majors in their field of interest and choice after the experience of a two-year-based curriculum. The students, placed into the Faculties according to their University Entrance Exam results, have the opportunity to formally declare their majors after the two-year common program. Delayed major declaration enables more informed and mature career decisions.

Prior to the core curriculum, students not yet at proficiency level enroll in the Foundations Development Year (FDY) since English is the medium of instruction at Sabancı University. FDY courses and exams are offered by the

 School of Langauges (SL)

Students are best prepared for the technological demands of the 21 st century by initiating their own learning skills of information access and retrieval. Sabancı University provides a laptop with access to the many Internet locations on campus, instructional support, and a permanent e-mail address to all full time students.
