I was very happy both as a local manager and as a citizen of Bursa. One of the important indicators of a country's development is the distance it has taken in industry and technology. In this regard, good things are happening in our Bursa, there are good developments. Our children are doing great things, we are excited. One leg of Teknofest will take place in Bursa. and our young people will showcase their 1-year effort. It is really impossible not to feel their excitement. They make these preparations on sleepless nights. I see here the sons of a strong Turkey, whose Gross National Product has increased, exports have increased, and Turkey has entered the top 10 economies of the world.”
Bursa will fly this year

We applied to Teknofest with 100 teams this year. It is not easy for a university with 6000 undergraduate students to apply with 100 teams. Perhaps we are the university with the highest number of applicants compared to students. We have 5 electric vehicles, 15 drones, UAVs and SİHAs. Bursa will fly this year. We trust our children. We thank our president for his support," he said.
