Today, internet has become an important part of daily life for individuals; however, it also presents the individuals with serious problems stemming from wrong use. Unhealthy/problematic use of internet can result in the deterioration in the social, business and family lives of the individuals and controlling the internet use may become a real challenge. This study aims to examine the probable problematic internet use of the Computer Technologies and Information Systems students whose department requires students to use computer and internet applications most compared to others with regard to various demographic data. The study also aims to develop a program to prevent the problematic internet use if the level of problematic internet use should happen to be considerably high. The study was conducted on freshmen, sophomore, junior and seniors studying at Trakya University, Kesan Yusuf Capraz School of Applied Disciplines, Department of Computer Technologies and Information Systems. The study is thought to be a descriptive one and general scanning method will be utilized. Cognitive State on the Internet Scale (CSIS) will be used to determine the problematic internet use of the students with an information form to gather demographic data (gender, age, grade, the frequency of internet use, the availability of the internet access at the current accommodation, the frequency of internet use from mobile phones). As the data are in the process of evaluation, the findings are not presented here. (C) 2015 The Authors.
