In May 2016, YÖK determined 8 universities in 8 fields as specialized universities. In this context, our university has been determined as a specialized university to work in Intelligent Transportation Systems. In addition to other educational and research activities, our university has focused especially on Intelligent Transportation Systems, which is its area of expertise and has carried out many workshops and activities. In this context, the "Intelligent Transportation Systems Application and Research Center" was founded at our university on November 15, 2017 with the regulation numbered 30241 published in the Official Gazette. Our university will achieve its new goals within the scope of the specialization mission given by YÖK through this application and research center (BANÜ AUSMER). Our university, which was also a member of AUSDER in 2017, continues to work within the framework of the joint missions and visions of other universities, TUBİTAK, YÖK, and other public-private sector stakeholders in line with the "National Intelligent Transportation Systems Strategy Action Plan-2023 Targets" announced by the Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs, and Communications.
