With the rapid change and development experienced today, our faculties and departments are also undergoing a great transformation. In the past, universities only transfer knowledge, but today they also produce knowledge. However, this has been found to be insufficient. What is expected from universities today is to transform this knowledge and research into products. Being aware of this, the departments of our faculty have adapted to this period. It is pleasing to see that the results of this transformation continue to increase over time. Our faculty continues to develop over time with patents, national and international scientific projects and scientific publications and industry consultancy. We are very happy to see that the success of our students has increased in this process. The 8th place of the Simurg Rocket Team in the TEKFOFEST competitions, the accepted TÜBİTAK projects of our students, the publication of scientific articles with their advisors, their work in various Technopark companies are just a few examples of the point we have reached. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate our students and our academicians who contributed to their education. I wish success to all students in their future lives.” he said.
Congratulating the graduating students and addressing their families, Trakya University Vice Rector Prof. Ahmet Hamdi Zafer said, “Your children, whom you look at with compassionate eyes and protect and watch over, have become adults. Today is your holiday, happy birthday. Dear students, I see the joy in your eyes and I share your happiness with my most heartfelt feelings. Do not forget that you can consult us on any subject, and our door is open to you until the end. From now on, we will continue to follow your successes with pride and support you.” said.
