International Accreditation

In 2014, we as the Faculty of Transportation and Logistics of the Istanbul University have under signed an accreditation agreement with the International Road Transport Union (IRU), which will entitle all of our undergraduates to the Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) in addition to their bachelor’s degree.

In virtue of this certificate honored by the IRU, the place of the faculty students in the sector will be strengthened, especially in such companies which operate in the logistics sector and are defined as road transport operators; planning and organising the transport of all kinds of goods and performing transportation applications.

IRU (International Road Transport Union):

The IRU, namely International Road Transport Union, is a union founded in the capital of Switzerland, Geneva on March 23th, 1948 by the UNECE (United Economic Commission for Europe). The institution that aims to defend the interests of road transport operators in particular also has the main objective of ensuring economic growth within a sustainable mobility of people and goods and providing prosperity. Non-governmental organisations and unions founded in different countries which are directing processes concerned with international trade and transportation related to road transportation, are also present amongst the members.
