The fair was organized with the theme of "R & D Collaborations in Future Production Systems" in order to improve the cooperation between universities, public-private sector and the research infrastructures that are active in Turkey. In our university stand, information about Photonics Application and Research Center, Life Sciences Application and Research Center, Manufacturing Application and Research Center, as well as the work carried out in other faculties was given.
Our Rector Prof. Dr. İbrahim Uslan made a speech in the panel, organized within the scope of the organization. In his speech at the session titled "Turkey's Priority Areas in the Light of Trends in Technology," he focused on the fact that "needs of the country" in "occupational preferences" for "developing countries" was an effective element. In his speech, Rector said that computer and software related professions would still be very important for a long time. He added, "Today, due to the changing and developing needs of humanity, topics such as "future materials development", "development of new production methods" and "machine-human interaction" will be intensively coming into our agenda".
Our Rector said that different concepts such as "bio-material engineering", "meta-material (extra-material engineering)" and "intellectual production technologies" will become a profession by entering our agenda over time. In his speech, he said, "I think that the concept of Industry 4.0 will shape new professions and occupational trends in the next decade in connection with the equipment with complex geometry that can not be produced with the Turkish production of 3D metal printers and previous production methods but only by using these printers".
