Reminding that the Faculty started ISO 9001 – 2015 Quality Management System establishment efforts in December 2016, Dean Elevli said “Goals such as raising better-equipped ad self-reliant graduates, raising competitive performance and developing internal processes made it inevitable to secure the educational and R&D (Research and Development) activities and administrative services quality of our Faculty”.

“Our works gave its first fruits in our Faculty”

Sharing the developments in the quality process with the attendees, Dean Elevli continued “Our efforts to establish a quality management system, which has been going on for more than a year, gave its first fruits in our Faculty. We firmly believe that the efforts to establish a quality management system in our University will also be successful. From now on our quality journey will continue through our efforts to sustain and develop the system with the participation of all our staff.”

“Standards​ are values open to development and continuous improvement”

Korkmaz continued “As you know, standards are minimum values; and thus open to development and continuous improvement. It’s the job of those who take part in standardization to achieve this. As TSE, it is of utmost importance that academicians, internalizing quality management systems, search for an answer to the question of how we can better and improve these systems and, sharing these questions and answers with us, transfer them to international standardization processes.”

“Our main goal is to become​ one of the best universities”

We aim for becoming one of the best universities. We even encouraged some of our units to rank first. Furthermore, we need to render the quality management process sustainable. In this scope, one of the most intensively working units of the University is the quality commission. Our friends here are in a work tempo the reward of which is only the happiness they feel when they see the results.”

“We beca​me more hopeful with this certification”

Emphasizing that they give great importance to the cooperation with TSE and started this process with firm belief, Rector Bilgiç continued “We will continue our way being aware of the continuity of this process and with belief. We have students from different countries of the world; they will also observe the advantage of this process. We believe that when our international students return to their home countries well-equipped, they will become voluntary ambassadors of OMU. With this certification our hopes escalated. We will certainly provide change and development. Each of us is showing the self-sacrifice in this concept.”
