A Brief History of Erciyes University (Non- Profit Government University)
 The establishment of Erciyes University dates back to 1978 when it was established as an affiliate of Hacettepe University in Ankara, and named Kayseri University. The Kayseri Business Administration Faculty, founded in 1977, constituted the nucleus of Kayseri University, which was then renamed Erciyes University. The name of the university was inspired by Mount Erciyes (3,917 m), which lies 15 kilometers to the south-west of the city. 

Two other higher education institutes, the Theology Institute founded in 1967, and the Kayseri State Higher Education Academy founded in 1977, were incorporated into the university as the Faculty of Theology and the Faculty of Engineering. Additional Faculty were added almost immediately, including the Faculty of Medicine, the Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences, and the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. Growth continued with the Faculty of Architecture and Fine Arts in 1992, the Faculty of Veterinary Sciences, of Dentistry, and of Communications, all in 1997. The year 2002 brought the addition of the Faculty of Education, in 2003 the Faculty of Law, and of Pharmacology. The Faculty of Aviation and Space Sciencesnd the Faculty of Tourism were added in 2012, and today Erciyes University is host to 18 outstanding Faculty.
