Information Systems and Technologies Program
The following statements were made EMU SCT regarding the content of the program and the job opportunities it offers to the graduates: “There is an increasing workforce shortage in the IT sector all over the world and Information Systems and Technologies graduates have the opportunity to pursue their careers in many local and international institutions. In this context, it is essential that the training we provide in Information Systems and Technologies programs responds to current and future needs globally. While updating our curricula, we always apply the scientific norms and training-related guidelines set by ACM (American Computing Machinery), which directs education in the IT sector, and ensure its compliance with both the local sector and the international job market.
In order to be an expert in the field of information systems and technologies that predominate all segments of life today, it is necessary to have a good command of social media, mobile applications, cyber security, big data applications and artificial intelligence / machine learning. EMU SCT Information Systems and Technologies programs provide students with the necessary infrastructure in all these subjects, and also constantly renew their field elective courses to enable them to specialize in their chosen field. Our Information Systems and Technologies programs, which boast international recognition, help our graduates start life one step ahead and find employment or further education opportunities in many parts of the world comfortably.
Graduates of the Information Systems and Technologies Undergraduate Program have many working areas such as web-based or mobile software development, computer systems security, software engineering, data mining, digital processing of multidimensional data, analysis and synthesis of information systems, artificial intelligence and social media platform development.
