gustaf and alperI have presented my master thesis last week and started to work for HP as a junior product chef. I have spent more than 4 months to complete my master thesis and the most single difficult part for me was the writing part. I think it is crucial to have good communication with your academic supervisor, since he/she decides how you should write and how much you should write. After this master thesis I began to abhor the communication problems. Giving an example, I wrote 100 pages at the beginning and spent almost 3 weeks to write it, then my supervisor wanted me to cut it down to 30 pages (max.). It was a very big hassle. Moreover, my supervisor did not want me to do those changes with alacrity. Because of that I had to wait two more months before I present my master thesis. Any way it is still good that I have the rights to decry my supervisor and my own work. By the way, my academic supervisor was Gustaf Juell-Skielse from KTH and he is a very experienced Accenture consultant. I have learned a lot from him and he has incisive comments which make me work harder and harder. But my recommendation for those of you, who will write master thesis, is that; talk to your supervisor very very clearly at the beginning. What he/she wants you to do, how much and how does he/she want you to write and so on. Because time management is difficult and you might waste your time if your supervisor changes his/her mind.

However, it was a priceless experience to work in one of the biggest energy companies at Europe and has an experienced academic supervisor back at school. Even if I had some difficult times to finish my thesis, I liked it and enjoyed a lot. In case you need, I am sharing my final master thesis (believe me, this is the real final version:) ) and my final presentation down here:

I am still a master student at KTH, Stockholm and will be graduated with in 3 or 4 months. Some people wanted me to share my intention letter, which I used while appliying for a master’s program at The Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden. I believe intention letter is the most important thing when you apply for a master or PDH program. Because it basically shows your interest and willingness to study on that particular topic.

 Here you can find my intention letter.

alper_celikIn the 1990s the computing industry shifted from expensive proprietary systems to open systems based on standard, low-cost hardware. This move changed a 20-year pattern of IT buying and deployment models. Some of the biggest IT buyers, like universities and research centers, also started to look for better, flexible and cheaper IT solutions.

I won the idea generation competition at Hej Världen event by my “Virtual Sales Representatives” project. The topic of the event was “Virtual Reality” and its effects to our daily life and future. I think the virtual reality is something that we try to understand all together and make some assumptions. When ever i talk about Second Life or any other virtual worlds, i can not create very innovative ideas. I guess, it is because we don not know a lot about the topic yet. You can find the project proposal here and i hope, i will have a chance to work in a project about virtual worlds (more…)
