1 In addition to expanding and making deeper the knowledge established on undergraduate education in a same or different area, reaches the knowledge by doing research and also improves his or her knowledge to the expertise level by doing evaluation and practice.
2 Utilizing incomplete or limited data in his or her study area expands the knowledge by experimental methods and use those obtained knowledge by scientific, social and ethical responsibility.
3 Constructs a problem independently and solves the problem by proposing an experimental solution method and applies to the advance level research by evaluating the results.
4 Transfers systematically the current developments and his or her advance level studies to the other related or nonrelated groups as written, orally and visually.
5 Develops new strategic approach and produces solutions by taking responsibility in unexpected and complicated situations in his or her area of practice.
6 Develops advance strategic, political and practice plans and evaluates the obtained results within the framework of quality process in his or her study area.
7 - Has advance level oral or written communication ability in one of well known foreign language (“European Language Portfolio Global Scale”, Level B1).
8 Has knowledge for software and hardware about computers, uses information and communication technologies.
9 Protecting scientific, social, and ethical values, teaches and controls these values in the steps of collection, evaluation and announcement of data in the international arena.
10 Applies the digested knowledge and problem solving ability in advance level studies among the different disciplines.
