Central Printing House

    The Central Printing House was established as the “Printing House” supporting the educational activities within the Turkish War Colleges Command at the beginning of the 1990s. It continues its activities as a “Printing House” in the Yenilevent Campus since 1975.

    With the establishment of the Turkish National Defence University in 2016, Military Academies, NCO Vocational HE Schools, Colleges and Institutes, which were within the structure of the Turkish Armed Forces, were gathered under the umbrella of the newly established Turkish National Defence University. Within this context, the Printing House has been renamed “Central Printing House” under the Department of Library and Documentation.

    As of 2017, the Central Printing House has gained a more academic structure and become a more modern, fast and functional printing house, which can meet all the needs of the University, by receiving a “Publishing House” certificate. Publishing Houses in Turkish Military Academy, Naval Military Academy and Air Force Academy are affiliated with the Central Printing and Publishing House.

    Central Printing and Publishing House carries out the printing of books, journals, brochures, lecture notes and other materials requested by the Rectorate of the Turkish National Defence and its institutes within the Rectorate Campus.

    As a method used in the birth of today’s modern printing technologies, typesetting is the process of lining up each letter side by side and forming words and sentences through this line-up to create pages. Then these pages are printed by hand or machines using the letterpress printing technique.
