About the Department

In recent years, developments in science and technology have gained an incredible momentum. Once technological progresses increase, both the quality and the amount of data that must be processed increases also. 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.

Education Opportunities

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. Students can also 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.

Accreditations

Management Information Systems Program has been accredited for 5 years (2023) as of 17th September 2018 by the Germany-based Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation (FIBAA), which inspects economics and management programs, including law and social sciences.

Career Areas

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.

The potential problems surrounding the use of fossil fuels, particularly in terms of climate change, contributing to global warming became a real concern for the humanity and the eco-system. Today, there is a growing shift towards environmental awareness and the the current energy-mix is coming under closer scrutiny leading to the rise of cleaner alternative energy sources. While the viability of each can be argued, they all contribute something positive when compared to fossil fuels..Lower emissions, lower fuel prices and the reduction of pollution are all advantages that the use of alternative fuels can often provide. Understanding the basic characteristics as well as pros and cons of both the conventional and alternative sources is a prerequisite for a sustainable future.
