About Master Thesis Submissions

There is no deadline information for the master thesis submission date is included on İTU academic calendar. We, the Graduate School, have received many questions about this issue and our response is as follows:

The maximum duration of master's education is 6 semesters and the thesis can be submitted at any time until the end of the 6th semester. In this case, a graduate student who will complete his maximum term by the end of the 2020-2021 Spring semester must have submitted his or her thesis by the end of the semester (11 June 2021) specified in the academic calendar at the latest.

After the submission of the master's thesis, the defense examination must be done within a month. Final thesis submission process must be initiated within a month following the defense examination. It is recommended that our master’s students who aim to continue their doctorate education at İTU starting from the semester after their master's education, should consider the defense and thesis binding processes and necessary deadlines. Final registration dates (Online) of candidates who are entitled to PhD education for the 2021-2022 Fall Semester are 02 – 05 August 2021. The registration dates (Online) of master's graduates who could not enroll despite being on the main list are determined as 13 – 14 September 2021.
