Istinye University Department of Industrial Engineering has signed an Erasmus+ agreement for student/staff exchange partnership with the Department of Industrial Engineering at Politehnica University of Bucharest (Romania). Within the scope of the program, students who are at least 2nd grade will be eligible to apply for an Erasmus grant of 3-12 months to study at the partner university. Students who wish to apply to the program must apply through the International Office.
The project submitted to 2535 TÜBİTAK-MSRT Joint Project Call by Dr. Nadi Serhan Aydın in collaboration with Iranian researchers Prof. İraj Mahdavi and Dr. Erfan Babaee’s, and titled “Multi-Criteria Decision Making, Mathematical Modeling and Dynamic Programming for Sustainable Mass Production Planning” has been selected for grant. The project aims to solve a multi-objective optimization problem in manufacturing by implementing environmental, economic and social sustainability criterias within the model through a multi-criteria decision making algorithm, thereby developing a sustainability-based production model. Dr. Mustafa Mısır, our Head of Computer Engineering, is also taking part in the project.
A new paper by Nadi Serhan Aydın (with Prof. Dr. Martin Rainer) titled “Asset-backed Stable Numéraire Approach for Sustainable Valuation” is accepted for publication in the Journal of Sustainable Finance and Investment. The article reveals the de-stabilizating effect on financial and non-financial asset prices of the conventional evaluation instruments in the field of financial engineering such as “stochastic short rate” and provides a new sustainability-based financial “benchmark” for asset valuation.
Nadi Serhan Aydın, Head of Department of Industrial Engineering, (with Prof. Gerhard-Wilhelm Weber, Dr. Ioannis Baltas and Dr. Emel Savku) has written the foreword of the recently published book named “Handbook of Research on Smart Computing for Renewable Energy and Agro-Engineering”. The book focuses on the benefits and difficulties in applying computational models to energy resources and agricultural manufacturing areas and also examines the potentials of the model to decrease the costs and create sustainable solutions.
A group of students from the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Istinye
University visited Turk Telekom Ventures (TTV). Accompanied by Asst. Prof. N. Serhan
Aydin, the students were received by Muhammed Ozhan, CEO of TTV. Also present at the
meeting were 3 managers of TTV with Industrial Engineering backgrounds, namely, Mr.
Salim Yilmaz, Mr. Rasit Turkmen and Mr. Orhan Akyurek, who are in charge of business,
product and strategy development at Turk Telekom (TT).
TTV was established as a wholly owned subsidiary of Turk Telekom Group in February 2018
in order to support the core activities of early / mid stage start-ups which have high growth
potential and synergies with the telecommunications sector, in order to invest directly money
and/or capital in kind to such start-ups and create value from their growth.
During the visit, the students were able to listen from the TTV executives a comprehensive
presentation on their company activities and benefit from their experiences on issues related
to the professional business life. Besides, the potential areas of cooperation between Istinye
University and TTV such as IoT, Smart Cities, Digital Health and Education, Fintech, and
Business Intelligence, were also discussed.

A group of Industrial Engineering students at İstinye University visited TUV SUD through our “Mentor'un CEO Olsun” programme. Industrial Engineering Faculty Member Dr. Nadi Serhan Aydın and Sector Cooperation Office officials also accompanied the students on the visit.
Our students were accepted by TÜV SÜD General Manager of Turkey Emre Büyükkalfa and his team. TUV SUD provides inspection, certification, testing, consulting and training services in quality, security, and sustainability areas and in major sectors such as energy, manufacturing, infrastructure, real estate, automotive at more than 1000 locations all around the world.
On the visit, our students had a chance to watch a detailed presentation by the TUV SUD officials where they learned about the company and to ask questions regarding the sector to Emre Buyukkalfa and his team.
