To train and educate researchers: Due to the fact that computer and communication technologies are developing so fast, the need to employ people who can be useful in research-development activities is increasing so fast. During the period of globalization and European Union there is a tremendous need for researchers with masters and PhD degrees who possess the ability to analyze and synthesize , can follow up the international relations, follow the latest developments, create new ideas and direct research- development projects.
This program will aid to educate and train such researchers who will have the above

To train and educate academicians: Particularly in computer engineering there are not enough academic personal. Those who get their masters and /or PhD from Turkey or abroad find very attractive offers from private sector, therefore prefer those institutions who make more attractive offers. Therefore such a program will contribute to the increase of academicians and will provide career opportunities in academic instructions.
