Rector's Message 

Dear Students, Respected Parents;

The main goal of OSTIM Technical University, which aims to be the "University of Industry," is to train graduates to be able to transform science and technology into practice. We will achieve this goal through our close cooperation with the business world, industry and the public sector. These advantages will allow us to play an active role in the sectors of industry and the economy, which we prioritize by supporting the infrastructure for education, research applications and required equipment at levels required by international standards.

Our university has adopted the fundamental principle of creating qualified human capital for the future of Turkey. In line with this principle, we will make every effort to educate individuals at our university in the knowledge and competencies required by the [businehumass not an accepted term; just use “competitive business world of the present and future”] —equipped with a broad vision, able to learn on the job, to ask and seek answers, to imagine, to create innovative designs and produce what they have designed, to display entrepreneurial spirit, to have teamwork skills, to take responsibility when necessary, and always to strive for professional competence. We will make every effort to ensure that our students become individuals with a high degree of cultural awareness and humanitarian values, who​​ are beneficial to society.

OSTİM Technical University is a “third generation” university. While “second generation” universities emphasized scientific research and education as a consequence of the division of labor after the 18th century, it was left to companies to implement the knowledge that had been developed into their production and business practice. This situation resulted in a decrease of university-company cooperation, and the distance between them gradually increased. The “third generation,” or “entrepreneurial university,” has an approach that eliminates these solid walls for the benefit of society and places the university together with business and industry at the center of the production and innovation process.

In the age in which we live, “education” is not limited to training students in theoretical practice. It also aims to enable students and academicians to increase their capacity to develop patents, utility models, industrial designs and brands based on a university-industry collaborative framework and, as a primary goal, aims at innovation, economic contribution  and commercialization through entrepreneurship. In this regard, with an “entrepreneurial university” approach, we will configure, in coordination with industry, our activities in  the field of science and technology to provide an added value to our country's economy. We will work to develop our region and country, both by producing unique projects and solutions, and by developing the necessary mechanisms to enable their application and commercialization. With the knowledge produced by our strong academic staff, we will race to become one of the leading global universities in our field.

I wish all success to our students and to our academic and administrative staff.

Best Regards,

Prof. Dr. Murat Yülek
