CIU participated to the Science Exhibition held at Bülent Ecevit Anatolian High School With 3 Projects
Computer Engineering Department, Faculty of Engineering, Cyprus International University (CIU) participated to the science exhibition organized at Bülent Ecevit Anatolian High School with 3 projects within the scope of the EU Innovation and Change VI. Grant program. The projects were designed under the consultancy of Assist. Prof. Dr. Çağın Kazımoğlu and Assist. Prof. Dr. Kamil Yurtkan, Lecturers of the Faculty of Engineering, it was aimed to improve the imagination of the students and to increase their interest in science and technology.
Assist. Prof. Dr. Çağın Kazımoğlu stated that three different projects were designed as: "Virtual Reality Project", "Drone and Image Processing Project" and "Synthesis and Mathematical modelling of Lipid-based Particles". Kazımoğlu explained that the purpose of the Virtual Reality Project was to help individuals, who are afraid of heights, to defeat their fears by using computer game editing. Kazımoğlu added that the virtual reality environment includes cities, buildings, cars and people and it is a 3D interactive simulation that symbolises reality.
Drone and Image Processing Project, which was designed under the guidance of Çağın Kazımoğlu and Assist. Prof. Dr. Kamil Yurtkan, aimed at specifying the number of objects in a certain area by running different algorithms from the recorded the images. Yurtkan said that the project allowed Computer Engineering and Electrical and Electronics Engineering students to make drills from scratch using basic equipment such as rotors, propellers and gps.
Kazımoğlu emphasized that the aim of the synthesis and mathematical modelling of lipid-based particles is to develop and compare different variants of lipids and at the same time to make a general evaluation of the applicability. Kazımoğlu said "Particle-based drug delivery systems have an important potential to improve the bioavailability of the drug and at the same time reduce the frequency of the dosage".
