As QTurkey, we have decided to launch the QTurkey Student Branches (QTurkey University Representation) in order to strengthen our relations with university students, to include more undergraduate students in the field of quantum technologies and to make the field widespread.
What does QSB do?
It organizes educational and promotional activities such as speeches, workshops, and training at the university where it is located, and supports the participation of new members. It works in cooperation with QTurkey and takes part in QTurkey events. It helps to ensure interaction between different communities by meeting with QTurkey student representatives at other universities.
How to become a QSB?
You can apply for the establishment of a QTurkey Student Branch at your university by gathering 4 undergraduate / graduate / doctoral students from at least two different departments. Not all members need to be experienced or knowledgeable about quantum technologies. Anyone who can provide support in different areas such as organization, design, software and who is willing to build a community can be on the team.
These 4 people will become founding members and will encourage the participation of new members after the QTurkey Student Branch is established. It is preferred that at least 1 member has participated in the Bronze workshop before and completed it.
QTurkey is the first quantum technologies community in Turkey. As an active sub-branch of QTurkey Student Branch, you can also join us and be a part of this new and exciting field while performing the firsts in Turkey together.
QTurkey is also one of the members of the QWorld community, active in 11 different countries. By joining the QTurkey network, you will have the opportunity to meet different researchers and interested people from around the world working in this field.
What Are Our Expectations ?
For the continuity of QTurkey Student Branch, we expect you to organize an event within the first 6 months after it is established. This can be a lecture, a workshop, or a working group. You can get support from us about the speaker.
We expect at least 2 of your members from the team to take active roles under QTurkey.
In case a mentor training program is organized by QTurkey, we expect at least 2 of your members to participate in this program.
How Can You Apply ?
You can apply to establish a QTurkey Student Branch (QSB) at your university by gathering 4 undergraduate / graduate / doctoral students from at least 2 different departments. These 4 people will become founding members and will encourage the participation of new members after the QTurkey Student Branch is established. It is preferred that at least 1 member has participated in the Bronze workshop before and completed it.
A member must be elected as a representative and coordinate with QTurkey.
The Application Form must contain the following information:
- QTurkey Student Branch name (For example QSB Boğaziçi)
- Team representative
- Team members name / department / class / e-mail address
- For each team member, a self-introduction letter of 1-2 sentences explaining the motivation of the team member.
The Application Form should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. If the application is positive, the team will be asked to obtain an e-mail address and a logo will be prepared for the team.
QSBs established in universities
QSB METU is a QTurkey student body established at METU that aims to accelerate the flow of information by bringing together people who are interested or have the potential to be interested in the field of quantum technologies.
QSB METU was founded on December 9, 2020 by 7 founding members. Our founding members;
- Doğuş Köse / Physics
- Furkan Eşref Yazıcı / Physics
- Elif Çetiner / Physics
- Hasan İrice / Physics
- Ezgi Karadavut / Physics
- Bartu Yaman / Physics
- Hacer Şafak / Physics
Since our establishment, we have been working together to gain knowledge in the field of quantum technologies with organizations such as many events, workshops and study groups, to guide people with different levels of knowledge who want to train themselves in this field, and to improve ourselves in this field.
If you would like to take part in this environment where every METU student who wants to improve himself in the field of quantum technologies can find endless support, we would be happy to see you among us.
