T.R. Minister of Industry and Technology Mehmet Fatih Kacır who gave the opening lecture of the ceremony said “The future of education depends on improving the quality management in higher education. It shouldn’t be limited to just traditional methods, innovative teaching and learning approaches should be included into higher education. In this context, our universities which are always rapidly integrated with technological developments, will focus on training qualified manpower in world-developing technology fields such as the Internet of Things, 5G, artificial intelligence, big data, quantum, cyber security, augmented reality and smart transportation. I would like to proudly state that in a world where internationalization and student mobility are increasing, today, the Turkish higher education system has reached an important position on the international platform with its globally proven universities and qualified scientists. For this reason, foreign demand for our country’s higher education is increasing day by day. We wholeheartedly believe that Türkiye will soon be one of the 10 countries that have most international students.”
At the end of the ceremony Assoc. Prof. Mustafa Aydın said “I hope that the 2023-2024 Academic Year will be beneficial for our country and university and I would like to express my respect and gratitude to our esteemed Minister Mr. Mehmet Fatih Kacır who honored us with his presence at our invitation.”
