Case Study

Department: Department of Software Engineering


We can say that in our brave, new world, our way of sustaining the life we are used to is based on software engineering. The arrival of the water to our houses, the programs of our washing machines and dishwashers, the GPS system that we use while going to work or school, banking systems, telephones, medical equipments, diagnostic devices, energy systems, design, and manufacturing applications are the examples that show us how much the subject of software penetrated into our lives. By offering this department, which is named as the engineering of the future, İzmir University of Economics provided the opportunity for engineering concepts, techniques, and methods to be applied in order to develop software. Being graduated from this department will give me the chance to enter the sector one-step ahead from other informatics graduates.

Department: Department of Economics


Since economics is an inseparable part of social sciences and since it contains intensive numerical methods, I chose the department of economics. The education I received helped me to understand the root causes of the economical models and increased my skill to make deductions by interpreting the current data and analyze the results. From the beginning of my undergraduate education, being in communication with my lecturers in the department that has a dynamic and experienced academic staff enabled me to learn the roads to knowledge. I believe that the education I received in the Department of Economics increased my competitive power both at home and abroad.
