Abstract: As a member of IFToMM founded in 2011, Turkish Machine Theory Association’s (MakTeD) structure has put special emphasis on sustainability of the association and initiated several activities for improving the quality of education and research in mechanism and machine science area, hence supporting the SDG4 Quality Education of the UN. This paper presents the activities and methodologies of MakTeD. The paper starts with a brief history of mechanism and machine science in Turkey. In 10 years MakTeD organized 4 symposiums, 1 conference, 4 summer/winter schools, 8 workshops and hosted an IFToMM Executive Council meeting. Each chapter of the biyearly held National Symposium on Theory of Machines is held by a different university and especially newly established and the universities in relatively smaller cities are prioritized in order to promote those universities and to contribute to development of these universities. Especially the summer/winter schools and workshops have a widespread impact on mechanism and machine science education and research at the universities and institutions. MakTeD also contributes to the community with published books and support programs for young researchers.
