In this context, we make a significant contribution to TEKNOFEST events as a stakeholder. Being in Ankara is also a first. The fact that it coincides with the August 30 Victory Day and is being held on the 100th anniversary of the Republic is a separate picture of pride.”

“Some of our friends, who have shown that spirit, entrepreneurship, innovation and experience by making projects and competing at an early age, are now taking part in these high-tech, source of pride projects in Turkey. We established ASELSAN Vocational Technical High School in Ankara in order to support qualified workforce and employment in high school age. For the last 3-4 years, we have been supporting Turkey’s highest level of students, better than 1 percent, with education there.

We support that high school with all of ASELSAN’s units, with all its means. This will return to us in the coming years as well-trained engineers, technicians with high technical knowledge, high level of knowledge and human value. In addition, we enroll our most valuable and successful student group into the ASELSAN A Talent Program in their third year, in terms of gaining engineering, R&D and development experience before the end of school.

Every year, more than 200 of our students start working with us while they continue their school life. Together with their older brothers, mentors, older sisters and engineers at ASELSAN, they have the opportunity to experience and put into practice the knowledge they have learned in theory. We opened our A Talent program for applications this year as well. Our students can apply now. We have been successfully implementing this program for many years.”

“Our priority to invest in people”

Akyol stated that they accept more than 1000 students at high school and university level every year at ASELSAN, and said that they provide their trainees with the opportunity to participate in TEKNOFEST and take part in the festival as stakeholders.

“As ASELSAN and the defense industry, we have considered investing in people as the top priority. In this context, we consider investing in people as the top priority at all stages, end-to-end, at all stages, with an understanding that we started with different programs from primary school and continued when they became engineers at ASELSAN.

The staff that will carry Turkey to the future is this well-trained human resource. We will continue to invest in this at an increasing rate. I invite all our people, citizens, young people and families in Ankara, together with their children, to TEKNOFEST, Turkey’s source of pride. As ASELSAN, we will take our place as an important stakeholder.

Let’s come and see this pride, the projects and products that are the source of Turkey’s pride together, have fun and let our young people gain this understanding, mission and vision together at an early age. ASELSAN will continue to serve the Turkish nation with this understanding.”
