Outstanding Achievement from Çankaya University Student Entrepreneurs, Tevfik Ağar And Mert Bayraktar
Lazersan Electronics Company was established by Tevfik Ağar and Mert Bayraktar with the SERBEST UZAY OPTİK (Free Space Optics) Project receiving techno venture capital from the Ministry of Industry.
These engineering graduates from Çankaya University Department of Electronics and Communications Engineering also continue their post-graduate studies at the university. Mert Bayraktar, who is also a research assistant at Çankaya University Department of Electronics and Communications Engineering, is part of the team at Lazersan Electronics with Tevfik Ağar, who worked with dedication on the project.
The Serbest Uzay Optik (Free Space Optics) Project is basically an atmospheric data transmission project. The system provides infrastructure to locations which fiber cable technology cannot reach and it is used for communication between bases and devices in the Defense Industry. The Serbest Uzay Optik (Free Space Optics) Project started as a dissertation project as a part of Çankaya University Department of Electronics and Communications Engineering projects. Firstly, students received Techno Venture capital support for this course with the aim for students to gain experience in basic design. Moreover, they applied for the METU New Ideas New Businesses Competition. Having been awarded the first prize in the Defense Industry Category, the confidence in these young engineers and Çankaya University was established. In addition, receiving second prize in the Information Category shows that they made quite a positive impression on the jury of 200 people with their team project and knowledge.
Having received prizes in two categories from among 1000 projects, the Lazersan Electronics Team has stated that their goal is to contribute to the national economy and science through completion of their project.
