Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU) School of Computing and Technology (SCT) Computer Technology and Information Systems Undergraduate Program is continuing with their “Meeting with the Sector”. “Meeting with the Sector” event organised by the Computer Technology and Information Systems program curriculum committee hosted Creditwest Bank Information Systems Manager Bora Tüccaroğlu and Project Management Expert Togan Çakmak from Telsim Vodafone.
In both meetings, the current curriculum of the Computer Technology and Information Systems department was revised together with the sector representatives attending the meeting, considering the needs of the business world and the innovations in technology. In the light of the feedback received during the meeting, the subjects of what arrangements should be made in the course contents for the next three years were discussed and the importance of the students creating early awareness about the requirements of their professions and the expectations of the business world and the importance of developing their academic equipment during their education were discussed.
In addition to the above, it was agreed that the students should develop their professional social networks and raise awareness about their ability to prepare themselves for the post-graduation business world by developing their personal efforts in one or more sub-fields of information technologies with respect to their talents and interests. For this purpose, it was decided to find common solutions with the representatives of the department and the company in relation to finding the places where the students could experience a really useful internship process according to their fields of interest, organizing the activities that would allow the students to get acquainted with the sector, and encouraging the students to participate in certificate programs and exams for personal professional development.
