Being one of the largest industrial corporations of Turkey, we wanted to show our gratitude to the region where we grew up and make a meaningful investment for the young people who will shape the future of our country. I wholeheartedly believe that Bilsem graduates will become business people, scientists and artists who will be well-known in future and represent our country with success in many fields.”
