A graduate of Middle East Technical University in Ankara, Turkey, Aliye Çelik received Master of Fine Arts in Architecture degree as the first woman architect from Princeton University in 1970. She earned a doctoral degree from Istanbul Technical University in 1976.

Aliye Çelik had a long and successful career at the United Nations. She was the Chief of Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) at the United Nations when she retired in 2005.
