The Venue


The 5th International conference on Research in Engineering, Science and Technology will be held in Istanbul Sabahattin Zaim University located in Istanbul, Turkey.


The land on which our university is built and transferred to the Knowledge Dissemination Foundation used to belong to Sultan II. Bayezid-i Veli Foundation which also used to host several important educational institutions during the modernization process of the Ottoman Empire. (Those were Agricultural Colleges) Istanbul Sabahattin Zaim University was founded as a foundation university by the Knowledge Dissemination Foundation bound with the Higher Education Law of 2547. In the very same location, which Mehmet Âkif was both a student and a teacher, Istanbul Sabahattin Zaim University provides education now. Today, the dining room which once Mehmet Âkif and his companions used to go, is designated as Istanbul Sabahattin Zaim University Mehmet Âkif Ersoy Lobby Room. The interior door is decorated with the verses of the National Anthem and with a large portrait of Âkif. Mehmet Âkif Ersoy Agriculture Museum is situated on the same campus and is a reminder to our youth of our great poet.


The first enterprise for agricultural education during the Ottoman State started when Mekteb-i Zirai Şahane (imperial agricultural school) was founded in 1848 in Yeşilköy district. However, due to various reasons, the school was closed in its second year.

A decree in 1867 made it necessary to open an agricultural school and farm samples in the centre of each city. However, there was no action taken on that up until 1884. With a code of practice that came out in 1884, the process of opening agricultural schools started. In those years, Ziraat Müdür-i Umumiye was founded as part of the Trade Inspection. The principal appointed was Sir Agop Amaysan, who had graduated from Grinyon Higher School of Agriculture in France.
