Sukru Alatas

I have worked on a wide range of IT projects for more than ten years, and have always made an effort to be involved in every phase of projects. This effort has given me a wide range of knowledge and experience beyond software development.

I’ve completed the Software Management MS program, which is the first MS program established in Turkey to target specialized software domain knowledge. I’m currently attending my second MS program in Information Systems to apply for the Ph.D. program in that area.

I’m currently working for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Turkey. I’ve been responsible for the development of inter- and intra-institutional solutions for the Ministry. The Turkish Electronic Visa System is one of the projects in which I have been in charge. The project was awarded the 1st prize in the Turkish National e-TR e-Government awards in 2013, and the project reached the finals at the United Nations Public Service Awards in 2015.
