Established in 2008 by the Mehmet Altınbaş Education and Culture Foundation under the name of Istanbul Kemerburgaz University, the university continues on its way under the name Altınbaş University, with the name change made in 2017.
Altınbaş University, which was founded on the " desire to invest in education " of the late businessman Mehmet Altınbaş, has always been the most valuable social responsibility legacy for the Altınbaş family. With the name change, the University, which took the power of Altınbaş Holding behind it, started to walk faster and more confidently to its new and competitive goals with this driving force.
Altınbaş University, which accepted its first students in the 2011-2012 academic year, quickly progressed towards becoming an international research university with the breakthroughs it made in a short time. In this context, it continued to create added value in the field of science with the patents obtained, TÜBİTAK projects and leadership in international congresses.
