Rather than being content with following these developments, we prefer to be a partner to this determination for growth and progress. I would like to congratulate Chancellor Prof. Dr. Prof. Dr. Hikmet Yazıcı and everyone who contributed to the establishment of the department. Mahmut Özer for the university’s achievements. On behalf of my family, I also would like to express my gratitude for allowing us to be a part of these achievements. As we have done so in the past, we will continue to do our best and support the university on every step of the way. I also want to thank Çaycuma Governor Hasan Yaman and Çaycuma Mayor Mithat Gülşen for their contributions to this achievement.”
