Department of Industrial Engineering

The success stories of Alumni and Students

Müge Muhafız, Class of 2009 

I graduated from Izmir University of Economics Industrial Systems Engineering in 2009 with the first place. Also, since I completed double major in Economics, I graduated from the university with two diplomas. I learned a lot academically from very successful professors in their fields. I also benefited from the social opportunities of our university by participating in student clubs such as the Folk Dance Club and the Industrial Systems Society.

When I graduated, I was accepted with scholarship from all of Turkey's best universities, to which I applied for my master's degree. In addition, I was entitled to a scholarship provided by Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK) to successful students during their graduate education. After all, I chose Bilkent University Industrial Engineering program to get my master's degree. Thanks to the education I received at Izmir University of Economics, I successfully completed this department in Bilkent University, which rarely accepts students from outside. Before I finished my master's degree, I received job offers from many leading companies in Turkey. I am currently working as a Business Analyst in the Change and Project Management department of Anadolu Hayat Emeklilik A.Ş. What I learned from my university and my professors, both in academic life and in business life, has always guided me, so I am grateful to Izmir University of Economics and my professors.

Erkan Er, Class of 2010

In 2005, I chose Industrial Engineering, the newest department of my esteemed university, which is among the youngest universities in Turkey. Since it is a very new university and department, I had questions about my choice at the beginning. With the social opportunities and scholarship opportunities offered by my university, I graduated with a double majör in Industrial Engineering and Software Engineering in 2010 after a very active university life.

As soon as I graduated, I successfully passed the recruitment process of Türkiye İş Bankası and stepped into the banking sector. I am currently working as a credit assessment specialist in the Commercial Loans Allocation Department of the Head Office of Türkiye İş Bankası. During my recruitment process, as I realized the values ​​that my university added to me both socially and technically makes a difference, I felt that I made the right choice at that time. I would like to thank my professors, who prepared us so well, scholarly and socially for business life, and who did not spare their support in any matter. I will proudly carry the name of Izmir University of Economics in every period of my life.

Çınar Tuncel, Class of 2010

While I was making my preference, I was interested in the fact that the department was multi-disciplinary. One year after my graduation, I started my master's degree in Health Administration at the University of Kentucky in the USA, and in the second month of the program, I had the opportunity to work part-time as I am an industrial engineer. As an industrial engineer candidate, I made my decision to focus on health in my first year.

Even though health management and industrial systems engineering are very unusual fields, I received a lot of support from my professors in the department from that time to my graduation and then until my graduate applications. While my friends were completing their internships in the production field, my teachers approved me to do my summer internship at the general directorate of Istanbul Acıbadem Hospital, in line with my decision. Then, together with my group, we completed our graduation project at İzmir Kent Hospital.

In addition, many student organizations that I am involved in, firstly and especially the Industrial Systems Society, and the extracurricular activities I have done, all return to me as a plus in every application I make, in every interview. Every time I think about the time I spent at IUE, I would like to thank all the staff from A to Z, especially my professors, for their efforts on me.


Gamze Mat, 2012

My education at Izmir University of Economics ended in 2012. From the moment I started to the end, I had many opportunities thanks to my school. First of all, thanks to the double major program, I had the chance to have Industrial Engineering and Software Engineering diplomas at the same time. Frankly, the most important reasons why I chose the University of Economics were that it was in Izmir and foreign language opportunities. Afterwards, the education quality of the school and the opportunities abroad showed that I made the right choice. Thanks to my university, I had the chance to succeed in two major organizations abroad. One of them was the first prize we won in the "Great Game Business Challenge Project Competition" organized by the Turkey-Netherlands Institute, within the framework of Dutch-Turkey relations, which was celebrated at the level of government representatives in 2012, at the level of government representatives, to which we were sent as a group by our university.

I gained my second international competition experience by representing our university in the German competition of ESTIEM, the only organization in Europe in the field of Industrial Engineering and Management. Finally, in the Department of Software Engineering, where I did my double major, we had the opportunity to present our graduation project, which we prepared with my colleague, as the only undergraduate students at the 25th European Combinatorial Optimization Conference and to meet valuable professors from all over the world. I would like to thank my esteemed professors and my university, who provided me with these opportunities and did not spare any support from us.
