EMU SCT Students Design Mobile Applications for Famagusta’s Historical Locations
Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU) School of Computing and Technology (EMU SCT) students Muhammet Nar, Batuhan Çetin, Atahan Kahraman and Umar Tijjani Waru successfully completed the “Famagusta visit points: Informative website-mobile application” that they will present to the Famagusta Walled City Association (MASDER) for them to utilise. During the 2018-2019 spring and 2019-2020 fall semesters, senior students working under the management of EMU SCT Graduation Projects Committee promoted the mobile application projects they developed about historical places in Famagusta on Tuesday, January 21, 2020, at 10:00 at EMU SCT class CT001 amphitheater. In addition to MASDER President Rifat Yalınç, Vice Presidents Serdar Atai and Kutlu Eyüpoğlu and Active Members Gülten Sinem Tözün and Zeki Özgen, attended alongside EMU BTYO Director Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nazife Dimililer, Assistant Director Asst. Prof. Dr. Emre Özen and faculty members.
Thanks to the mobile application developed by EMU SCT students, people who visit historical locations in Famagusta can receive information about the location by a recorded voice and text conveyed by their phones, by scanning the camera lens of their smartphones on a two-dimensional barcode known as the "Quick Response (QR) Code" that will be placed under the signs placed in front of each work. The mobile application is designed to be responsive to the screen sizes of various devices and to support dynamic content in different languages.
“It gives us Great Pride to be able to Contribute to our Famagusta”
In her announcement EMU SCT Director Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nazife Dimililer stated “SCT’s mission is not only to provide education; producing, sharing and using it for the benefit of the society are also among our most important goals. As we have done before, we aim to contribute to the society in our graduation projects that ended in the 2019-2020 fall period. For this reason, we have determined the scope of the project and collected the requirements related to the project with the cooperation of MASDER. Our students have been working on these projects for two terms and the contributions of all our students are very meaningful and valuable. All the teams have produced beautiful projects ".
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Dimililer went on to say “Our students presented the project chosen by our committee to the chair and members of MASDER. During this period, we would like to thank our committee members who served as advisors, Faculty Members; Birol Özkaya, Cem Yağlı, Halide Sarıçizmeli, Şebnem Çoban and Yeşim Kapsıl Çırak. It has been a great honor and happiness for us to contribute to Famagusta, which is among the richest cities in the world with its historical values. I would also like to thank MASDER, who dreamt of this beautiful project coming to life, in the promotion of Famagusta's historical and touristic places, and for giving our students the opportunity to work on it. In this way, our students both had a very good experience before graduation and had the chance to see the project they produced come to life.” Sharing the project on his social media account, MASDER President Rifat Yalınç stated that "This project will be one of the best examples of the EMU-MASDER cooperation".
