Testimonials

Alper Ozdemir

Hayat Kimya Ltd, Management trainee

 

Industrial Engineering and Management was good programme for me and it really helped to understand more about efficiency, finance, quality. I chose this programme because I wanted to see management side of production and the background of it. The study gave me the vision of seeing the big picture of process: it is important to think not only about productions, but also see other things like marketing, finance, investment, capital, research and etc. Studies helped me to get to know all these things very well, and in my work place I was able to talk in the “same language” with many departments. Now I am working in one of the biggest chemical company in Turkey as a management trainee. Knowing management helped me to reach higher position easier and I was more confident about myself.
