BilgeAdam Boost, which is designed to train the best software experts with the knowledge and competence level in line with the current needs of the business world, focused on human, knowledge, competence and quality”.

They will gain experience in internships and real projects

Within the scope of the project, Boost participants will have the opportunity to do an internship for 2 months with software development teams at the ITU Teknokent headquarters in Istanbul or Bilkent Cyberpark in Ankara, after a 6-month intensive training program. In this process, they will be able to acquire real project experience, develop teamwork skills and carry research skills to higher levels in line with the industry needs.
