For Prospective Students

Computer Engineering: Why?

Computer engineering graduates can easily become entrepreneurs and establish their own companies at a very young age. They can find investors from all over the world. For example Udemy [3] and YemekSepeti [4] are two IT companies founded by computer engineers in Turkey; one is an online education company that has moved to Silicon valley, has received over 173 million dollars of investment as of 2016 and has turned into a company with a value close to billion dollars, and the other is an online food ordering site sold to a German company for half a billion dollars. With the support of public institutions, many of our new computer engineering graduates set up their own company and pursue their dreams.

In addition, the fact that computer engineering graduates have more job opportunities abroad increases the attractiveness of this department.
