As a result of the application of ‘Substantial Equivalence’ to the American National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) in June 2013 by the Department of Architecture, the report prepared in accordance with the visit to our faculty was evaluated at the NAAB General Assembly in February 2014 and it was accepted to pass the second stage.


The second stage visit was performed between 9-15 October 2015. The report prepared after the visit was approved by the NAAB General Assembly in March 2016 and our institution was accepted to pass the third stage.


The third stage visit took place on 5-9 April 2019. The report prepared as a result of the visit was accepted at the NAAB General Assembly in July 2019 and Yildiz Technical University Department of Architecture was granted Substantial Equivalence for 6 years starting from 1 January 2019.
