Our Philosophy

The founder of Kadir Has University, the late Mr. Kadir Has, dedicated his life to education. The founding of our institution grew out of his personal philosophy: "I will strive to do and be the best for my country." In keeping with this motto, our purpose is to facilitate the education, development, and prosperity of today’s youth by means of innovative research and academic teaching that inspires democratic thinking and practice. We believe that education can fortify our students, as it did earlier generations, to meet the tests of their own time. Our aim is to create an environment of education, research, and discussion at the level of the best universities in the world. Thus we offer education based on both traditional disciplines and interdisciplinary models; we foster the skills necessary for continuing social and cultural development; and, while helping students prepare for the future, we encourage their search for higher truths. The central tenet of Kadir Has University’s philosophy is to produce students who are self-confident, who question, who consider all perspectives and evaluate them without prejudice, and who are open to the winds of change. We want students to see that as successful scholars and fulfilled individuals, they are the leaders of our society.

Biology, biotechnology, and biosciences have been rapidly developing since 2000. To handle the data produced, computer technology is required due to the excessive amount of data. Most of the recent techniques used in DNA, RNA and protein-based research is supported by bioinformatics and computer science. Computer science offers a new era for the biological sciences. For example the building block of the cell, proteins are modeled in 3D using a computer; this enables the rapid and efficient identification of molecular interactions and signals transduction pathways. Similarly, mutations in the genetic sequence can be detected quite fast using computer technology. Since the recent advancements in computational biology decreased the cost and accelerated the research processes including the drug development, the in silico studies are highly demanded in the industry....

Why MIS?

“Let us consider a couple of recently established IT based companies worldwide for a moment: Google, Facebook, Yahoo!, YouTube, Twitter, Amazon, eBay, LinkedIn, FourSquare, Alibaba, etc.”. The market value of each of these companies is measured in terms of billions of USD. Is this a coincidence or is it the new way of business? We believe that the answer is the later. As we progress within the new technological era, many things regarding our lives will dramatically change whether we like it or not. Some of these changes are the way of doing business, social life, entertainment, communication, commercialization, medicine, drug design, education, customer relations, resource planning, logistics, etc....
