Technological Infrastructure of The Department
The courses of our department will be given in the 5 existing computer laboratories and plus 1 laboratory containing 40 new computers.
For the managerial deparments to benefit from the rapid development of the technological equipment in the most effective way, the software products operated on these hardware should be adapted to these developments as soon as possible. For this purpose, in order to develop new software products, there is a need for software developers who have basic business knowledge and who can follow innovations in computer science and who have extensive and high level knowledge in this field.
In addition, when Turkey to the specific conditions in the market and commonly used commercial software are taken into account, it is clear that theres is need for program developers which can be adapted to the expectations of the sector. Fillling this gap by staff members who are not sufficiently aware of the subject, know only computer and system technology,lack of experience in practical programming and sufficient interdisciplinary academic background, wastes time and resources.
The academic program of this department reflects the characteristics of traditional computer engineering programs, but it also supports with the basic module of business administration. Academic curriculum of our department aims to educate students with intense practical knowledge, and who can adapt adapt to industry or business needs based on the existing software used by the company and the sector, and can meet the world needs particularly the European Union and Turkey, can develop high quality programs, system design, development systems, communication channels and be able to solve problems encountered in terms of satisfaction final consumer.
You can find a part of the academic training that we offer to software developers, who are sought after in many sectors within the framework of the transformations that took place in Industry 4.0 and later.
