I am Mohammad from Iran. I graduated in the department of Electrical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology in Tehran, one of the top schools in Iran.
My work revolved around micro-nano electronics and I was really interested in using the electronic devices for biomedical application. As I was looking for a position, especially in neuroscience, I found a professor here in Koç University who seemed to be an expert in this field and had good facilities in his lab. After I had a skype interview with him, I was told that I would be an asset to their project research which I found to be a very good opportunity for me so I decided to come to Koç University.
I can say it is very easy for us Iranians to come to Turkey as we don't need a visa. Coming here for me was like travelling to another city in Iran, it was very easy and I was here in virtually 2 hours. The whole process of my coming here was very easy, my registration for example only took approximately half an hour after which I took my keys and went to my room, very easy and comfortable. They also took care of our residence permit process for us, it only took around 10 minutes for me, giving my documents. I didn't get stressed out about anything which was great for me because it's very important for PhD and in generally for graduate students to focus on their work and not have additional worries. Koç University did a great job. They consider all these factors and make it very comfortable and easy for students.
Koc University is very beautiful, I visited many places in UK, Germany, and talking to people there who know about Koç University, we all agreed Koç University has one of the most beautiful campuses that we visited before.
The facilities are competitive with top universities, for example I visited the best Universities in the UK and when I compared their lab facilities I can say that it is really competitive, they didn’t even have all the facilities that we have here at Koç University. For PhD students, especially Engineers, facilities are really important for research. It's a very good opportunity for students in Iran or other countries to come here to work and study.
