Prof. Dr. Abdulhamit Subaşı, mentor of our students who won the gold medals on Infomatrix competition, gave an interview for our web page
Prof. Dr. Abdulhamit Subaşı, Dean of the Faculty ofEngineeringand Information Technologies of International Burch University and a mentor of our Golden Boys Sabahudin Husić and Dženis Ejupi, answered our questions on behalf of their project ‘’Dry Neural Array’’. Just to remind, the project won the first place on Infomatrix competition in Bucharest, Romania, held from 3rd to 7th of May 2012.
- Professor Subaşı, how have everything begun, how have you found that students should work on this kind of project?
- Well, students were working on different projects, Sabahudin has already had won one silver medal on Infomatrix and I have sensed that he and Dženis, as a computer programmer, should start studying and working on brain signals, EE Signals (Electroencephalographic) and on a Brain Computer Interface. -
- What was their very first step and how long has this project been under the development?
- I have given them my scientific papers on this topic and have directed them to useful resources, that has been the starting point. They have worked on this project for almost a year. -
- How about the financial side of the project? How have you managed to get the necessary parts?
- I have to say that our University has given us a full financial support. We had to order some materials from USA and China. -
- What about future work with Sabahudin and Dženis, or with other students of Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies?
- I think they are now on a good track and they can make decisions and drive their project on their own. Still, I will always be there for my students. On the other hand, I have a lot of other projects that need to me mentored. -
- For the end, what would be your message for all researchers and young scientists?
- Constant work and a belief in the idea are crucial. International Burch University and all our staff will definitely support all kind of good scientific projects, even though they are coming from out of our University. -
