Student Projects

3 research projects developed by Students of BİLGİ Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences are entitled to be supported by Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK).

According to the 2019 Second Term results of TÜBİTAK-Directorate of Science Fellowships and Grant Programmes (BİDEB) 2209-A University Students Research Projects Support Program, below given projects of BİLGİ students are deemed eligible to get support:

  • The project entitled “Building a Model for Prediction of Drug Side Effects using Gene Expression Data” by Melisa Tuncer and Arzu Çakır, students of BİLGİ Genetics and Bioengineering, supervised by BİLGİ Genetics and Bioengineering faculty members Özlem Ulucan Açan ve Hilal Taymaz Nikerel.
  • The project entitled “Collecting Sustainable Electric Power from the Growth Process of Plants” by Ömer Yıldız from BİLGİ Genetics and Bioengineering and Ege Salih Uras from BİLGİ Energy Systems Engineering, supervised by faculty members Prof. Dr. Serkant Ali Çetin from BİLGİ Energy Systems Engineering and Prof. Dr. Hatice Gülen from BİLGİ Genetics and Bioengineering.
  • The project entitled “Low-Cost Video Laryngoscope Running on Low Power” by Furkan Utku Emre ve Metehan Köklü, students of BİLGİ Electrical and Electronics Engineering, supervised by faculty member Yiğit Dağhan Gökdel from BİLGİ Electrical and Electronics Engineering.

TÜBİTAK BİDEB 2209-A University Students Research Projects Support Program aims to encourage undergraduate students to conduct researches.



BİLGİ Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences student MELİSA ZEYNEP ERSOY was accepted to the TÜBİTAK STAR Intern Researcher Program.

Project-based scholarship program aims to allow successful students gain research experience in the fields of science and technology they are interested in, take part in scientific research projects besides their academic studies and develop their research skills.

Before applying to the program, STAR candidates were asked to contact the executives of the projects carried out in the centers and institutes of TÜBİTAK or supported by TÜBİTAK and receive an acceptance letter confirming that they are eligible to take part in the project. Students who received a letter of acceptance were placed in the projects they wanted to take part in, in line with the quotas determined by the project coordinators, after the evaluations based on their General Weighted Grade Point Average and University Entrance Ranking. In line with the placements, 1,500 undergraduate students, including first-year students from 145 different universities in 134 different undergraduate programs in the fields of science, engineering, health and social sciences, were accepted into the STAR program. Supported students will receive 750 TL per month for 6 months besides being involved in research ecosystem at an early stage and gaining scientific research experience.
