In recent years, developments in science and technology have gained an incredible momentum. Once the technological progresses increase, both the quality and the amount of data that must be processed as well. Information systems that are used to access, process, evaluate, and transform information, has become one of the significant constituents of an advanced society. Information systems can be used in numerous structures, such as game consoles, large databases of financial institutions, communication systems or satellite communications in telecommunications companies, Internet service providers, and social networks. Experts which have the skills to design, develop, or manage information systems may easily be chosen among information systems engineering graduates.
As in other engineering fields, Information Systems Engineering students complete core mathematics and science courses in the first two years. At the same time, they take subject matter courses, such as introduction to programming, algorithms, fundamentals of information systems, logic design, circuit analysis, computer architecture, visual programming, data structures, and introduction to Internet programming. In addition to these, they take courses such as introduction to business, engineering management, and engineering economy in order to have a general perspective and knowledge in the business and management fields. In the third year; operating systems, object-oriented programming, databases, computer networks, information security, project management, management information systems, information systems analysis and design, and business intelligence courses are offered for the students. Therefore, through this multi-dimensional course structure, students complete their program with an excellent background. Also, they can take elective courses from the Department of Computer Engineering and Business School to develop their knowledge in different disciplines. Our program is a member of the Oracle Academy and Microsoft Imagine Academy.
One of the main purposes of the department is to offer the highest level of knowledge and experience to the students so that they can equip themselves to find positions at private or public institutions as experts, designers, or developers of information systems. After completing the program, students can work in software, banking, finance and manufacturing firms, marketing, electronic commerce companies, or in telecommunication sector. Furthermore, they can work in promising sectors such as computer games, mobile applications or cloud computing. Our graduates can also continue their academic studies. The interdisciplinary nature of the education given in the department increases post-graduate study opportunities for graduates at prestigious universities all over the world.
