The technologies in the information and communication fields are changing and evolving rapidly. Simultaneously, the utilization and impact of such technologies in everyday activities increase with important consequences. In this context, the skills and competencies of graduates expected by the IT sector are also changing, rendering the standard computer science curriculum ineffective in satisfying such expectations. Our department applies a contemporary and pioneering curriculum which aims to educate and prepare competent human resources that satisfy the requirements of changing and evolving information technologies. The courses designed with such considerations highlight the distinguishing attributes of our department.
Information Systems is an academic and professional discipline which focuses on collection, usage, and storage of data with software and hardware components. The distribution, processing, and management of information by utilizing up to date information technologies are the main areas of interest. As a branch of engineering, it is a profession which incorporates all activities related to the analysis, design, installation, procurement, and operational management of information systems.
The vision of the Information Systems Engineering Department of Piri Reis University is to achieve the status of a distinguished institution which graduates highly qualified information system engineers and contributes to the academic research in the field. Our mission is to educate engineers who are capable of developing information systems incorporating the latest information technologies using the most up to date scientific tools, to meet the requirements of society in general, satisfying the universal standards.
Information Systems Engineers work in various fields such as Web Design, Database Design and Management, System Architecture, System Analysis and Design, Computer Programming, Computer Network Installation and Management. These fields of work are prominent in the functioning of almost all public and private companies in the national and international arenas. They work in projects as project managers, software engineers, contract specialists, database managers, quality assurance professionals and network administrators. Information systems engineers can advance their academic careers by studying towards higher degrees in various fields of Information Technology such as Computer Engineering, Software Engineering etc. or in related areas such as Business Administration.
