Division of Construction Materials was established with the support of our Em.Prof.Dr. Bülent BARADAN. Currently, 6 faculty members, 1 doctorate, 1 PhD thesis research assistant and 1 lab technician are working in the division. The Division of Construction Material investigates and improves the physical and mechanical properties of construction materials like steel, concrete, wood, etc. and materials of water, heat and sound insulation, materials of decorative and protection. All the properties investigated and examined on the materials of construction science are determined in the consturction material laboratory as a result of standardized experimental works.
Building Materials in the Department within the scope of compulsory courses, as described in Materials of Construction Materials Knowledge-I course with concrete and concrete-forming component as described in Building Materials-II courses are offered. There are also elective courses where information on different types of materials is given. Finishing projects based on experimental studies in different subjects to senior students are done in the Department of Building Materials. Dokuz Eylül University engineers with the title of Civil Engineer Institute of Science Civil Engineering Department of Building Materials Program also has the ability to make the scope of postgraduate education. Especially Department of Building Materials Branch managed the faculty members, graduate and TUBITAK, where the doctoral students, DPT (State Planning Organization), University-Industry collaboration aided by research into new types of materials or the development is carried out many projects to continue our research with new projects in future be It is one of our basic aims.
