Universities are institutions that produce, teach and serve the community with a view to taking local, national and international developments and objectives into account. The developments in globalization and information technologies have increased the importance of knowledge and science. Countries and societies that can manage and produce knowledge will gain competitive advantage and become leading countries and societies in terms of economic development and level of welfare. In this regard, our country needs competent and qualified young people who are able to use and produce knowledge.
