International Equivalency



NAAB International Certification (valid for 6 years since 1 January 2019)



NAAB International Certification identifies a program as comparable in educational outcomes in all significant aspects to a U.S.-based program and indicates that it provides an educational experience meeting acceptable standards, even though such program may differ in format or method of delivery. It further indicates that a program has met the Conditions for NAAB International Certification, which are comparable to the NAAB Conditions for Accreditation in all significant aspects. Although NAAB International Certification is not accreditation, it represents that a program of architecture has achieved the highest standard of quality assurance in professional architecture education.



On June 2013, YTU Department of Architecture has applied to the National Architctural Accreditation Board (NAAB). First Visit of NAAB took place under the supervision of Cornelius Kin Dubois on November 2013 whose report had been evaluated on February 2014 meeting of NAAB. As a result of the voting in that meeting, YTU Department of Architecture was found eligible to continue with the second visit process. YTU Department of Architecture handed in the Architectural Program Report (APR) on 27th of January, 2015 to NAAB and consequently the second visit was realized between 9-15 October, 2015 by Thomas Fowler, Barbara Sestak and Ceki Dusi (YTU).


The final (third) visit was realized by Miguel Rodriguez, Amy Perenchio, Elizabeth Widaski and Özgür Dinçyürek between 5-9 April, 2019. At the July 2019 meeting of the National Architectural Accrediting Board, the directors reviewed the Visiting Team Report from visit three to the Department of Architecture at YTU. YTU’s Bachelor of Architecture degree has been granted NAAB’s International Certification designation for a term of six years, effective 01 January 2019.
