“Being part of ITU is very exciting. I have two messages for the new ITU students. It is important to find answers to the questions: “What are my strenghts? What do I want from life?” It is very difficult to answer them. As Steve Jobs said, we are searching for the answers all our lives. And we have to work hard to find the answers to these two questions. I want you to think them over”, said Cenk Sezgin, Electronics and Communication Engineering Department graduate and Director of Corporate Services at Turk Telekom, during his speech at Information Technology Summit.

Follow Your Dreams


“In my opinion engineering approach is a very strong basis to piercieve the world correctly and in a scientific way. Knowledge of mathematics and engineering is a must in a digital world; otherwise, you may think that everything in this world is made by magic”, said Erdem Erdoğan, Physics Engineering Department graduate and IBM Cloud Sales Manager, emphasizing the role of engineering knowledge in our lives. “In the world of today you have plenty of opportunities. Nowadays there is a very thin line between dreaming and realizing your dreams. I have friends who can be even more successful than the businessmen I showed you in my presentation. I hope they will never give up on the way to their dreams”, added Erdoğan speaking to the young ITU students.
