Dear faculty members and students,
Based on the declaration of YOK and the Senate's decision on the education method to be adopted in the Spring Semester of the 2020-2021 Academic Year, with the meeting number of 2021/02 dated 16.02.2021, in line with the opinions of our departments in the Faculty of Architecture Board of the Faculty of Architecture dated 23.02.2021, the following policy decisions have been taken for the 2020-2021 Academic Year, Spring Semester;
- The distance education experiences of Yıldız Technical University, Faculty of Architecture in 2019-2020 spring and 2020-2021 fall semesters have yielded fruitful results for both theoretical and applied courses, considering that the courses have been carried out successfully, the theoretical and practical courses will continue and end with distance education opportunities for the 2020-2021 Academic Year, Spring Semester,
- Considering that in a metropolis like Istanbul, vaccination has not yet begun for the students and faculty age group, as well as the increased risk of mutation viruses, the inefficiency and disruptions experienced in hybrid system applications in the academic environment in the previous periods, and that our university has a well-functioning system, all preparations for the 2020-2021 Academic Year and Spring Semester have been completed as online education in order to ensure that education can be carried out in healthy conditions,
- Final juries of graduation projects and 1st year projects can be organized in the large venues of our faculty if the conditions are better, but students who cannot come to Istanbul should be prepared for online exam systems,
- According to the course of the epidemic in the future, the final exams of the applied courses can be done by preserving the physical distance and using the masked face-to-face education method.
In these extraordinary conditions we live in, the support of our esteemed faculty members and students for the protection and continuity of our education is very valuable for our Faculty. We wish all academic staff and students of our university and faculty a healthy, successful and productive education period in the Spring Semester of the 2020-2021 Academic Year.
