Our students, who gain knowledge about operating systems, network topology and management, database, and computer hardware during their education, can work as programmers, web designers or system experts upon graduation.

During their four years of education, our students develop applications such as pedagogical animations, pedagogical software, pedagogical websites and a course management system after they acquire theoretical knowledge and practical experience in the following areas: pedagogical design, computer-based educational environment development, and visual design. Our graduate students, who have the ability to evaluate the applications on the market from pedagogical and design perspectives, can work as educational specialists, educational technicians or instructional designers for individuals of all ages in all kinds of educational institutions and companies.

As students of the department participate in the pedagogical courses offered in the School of Educational Sciences from their first year onwards, they possess the necessary qualities to teach computer and internet literacy as well as advanced computer applications to individuals of all ages.
