PIRI REIS UNIVERSITY HAS BEEN AWARDED

“THE PRIZE OF EXCELLENCE IN INTERNATIONAL CO-OPERATION” BY THE TURKISH HIGHER EDUCATION COUNCIL

 

The Turkish Higher Education Council (YÖK) has awarded PIRI REIS UNIVERSITY “The Prize for Excellence in International Co-operation”, together with the Qatar Naval Military College, for cooperation in the provision of higher education and the development of research institutions. Piri Reis University is well-known as the founder of the “Turkish Maritime Education Foundation” and has taken a huge step towards becoming a quality Turkish brand, both in Turkish higher education and in maritime education, by using the strengths and experience it has gained from previous successes from past endeavours, together with the leadership and support of the Chamber of Shipping.

 

The awards ceremony took place on March 13th, 2019. The aim of the agreement, signed by Piri Reis University rector Prof. Dr. Oral ERDOGAN and the Commander of Naval Forces of the Qatar Emirate, Rear Admiral Abdullah Bin Hassan Al Sulaiti, was to establish the administrative and educational structure of the Naval Military College being founded by the Qatar Armed Forces. Military training at the college is to be carried out by the Ministry of National Defence and the academic higher education program of the college is to be provided by Piri Reis University. This project also aims to strengthen the bonds of trust between these two already friendly countries by improving mutual opportunities and cooperation.

 

Under this agreement, Piri Reis, as a foundation university, will also have access to financial sources to support its current base while allowing it to extend its services to other countries. According to the pact signed by both nations, a number of financial issues are dealt with. Both the University and our home country have benefited by the 22 million Euros that were earned in the first 5 months of 2019. According to national statistics, this figure is considered to rank first in terms of ‘academic education export’ earnings.

 

Furthermore, by completing this project successfully, we are also contributing to the reputation of our university, Turkish Maritime services, and the Turkish Navy.

Piri Reis University, is a full member of the International Maritime Universities Association, and currently holds the chairmanship of the Black Sea Maritime Foundations Association. It is also involved in carrying out many international projects in association with these institutions.
