BOĞAZLIYAN MAYOR VISITS OUR RECTOR WITH A GIFT TO BEEM TEAM
Boğazlıyan Mayor Gökhan Coşar visited our Rector Prof. Dr. Ahmet Karadağ in his office.
In his visit, Boğazlıyan Mayor Gökhan Coşar, who is also one of the sponsors of the Beem team formed by the students of the Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department of our university, stated that as Boğazlıyan Municipality they want to present a gift to the Beem team which participated in the TEKNOFEST 2020-TÜBİTAK Electric Car Races and won the "Promotion and Dissemination Award" in 3 different races with the approval of localness in the races and has received the 9th, 6th and 9th degrees respectively. Boğazlıyan Mayor Gökhan Coşar also wished team advisor Asst. Prof. Dr. Emrah Çetin and all the members of the team continuous success.
Thanking Boğazlıyan Mayor Gökhan Coşar for the visit and their gifts, our Rector Prof. Dr. Ahmet Karadağ stated that the electric car designed by the students of the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering of our university has achieved a very important success in the TEKNOFEST 2020-TÜBİTAK Electric Car Races and that they have a great and justified pride on behalf of our University.
Stating that when he came together with the Beem team before the competition, he witnessed the determination of the students and knew that they will be successful in the races, our Rector Prof. Dr. Ahmet Karadağ continued his speech as follows:
“Being among the first 6 out of 117 electric vehicles participating in the races and achieving a significant success made us very happy and pleased. Believing is half the success. Depending on this belief, you have decided, and the determination carried you to success. We know that electric vehicles are the future of the world and Turkey. You have achieved a success that is never a coincidence by improving yourself and your vehicle by preparing better than the previous year for the races held every year, giving importance to domestic production. Boğazlıyan and Çekerek municipalities sponsored our vehicle before the competitions in order to make up the deficiencies of the preparation and modification of the electric vehicle. Their support has also been an important factor in achieving this success. I thank Boğazlıyan Mayor Gökhan Coşar and the Çekerek Mayor Eyüp Çakır for their support.
Yozgat Bozok University will be ambitious in the field of electric vehicles, as always, as in every field. As the university administration, we are always by our students and their projects. I hope we will achieve important successes together in this field as well as in many other fields in the next period."
Boğazlıyan Mayor Gökhan Coşar, who later presented his gifts to the team members, drew attention to the fact that success will be achieved when the institutions work together and said: “We, as the municipality, sponsored our vehicle during the construction phase. We wanted to support our fellow students. They did not embarrass us and achieved success by representing our city and our university in the best way.”
