UPYE (International Project Management Institute) was established in 2010 in order to extend the Project Management knowledge in Turkey. As an NGO and a non-profit organization, UPYE’s vision is being an internationally recognized Turkish organization which shapes the future of project management globally.

UPYE was established by 10 co-founders with background and expertise from different industries which include construction, real estate, information technology, energy, marketing and nanotechnology, and currently it has more than 300 online professional and student members. Prof. David Arditi, the IIT Construction Engineering and Management Master Program Director is an honored member.

UPYE completed many seminars and organizations in the last 5 years and Bogazici University was the host and the major supporter of those events. In addition, Ozyegin University was another university that organized an important event together with UPYE about the real estate industry in Turkey in 2014.

“Project Management from Different Perspectives”, “Construction Cost Management”, “Integration and Communication Management in Construction Industry”, “Institutionalization and Human Resources Management in Construction Industry” and “The Past, Today and Future of Real Estate Industry in Turkey” were some of the major events that the UPYE previously completed successfully.
