FACULTY OF AGRICULTURE
Agricultural Technology Programme only offers
undergraduate (BSc Agricultural Engineering). Postgraduate
programmes (MSc ) are given by the relevant departments.
subdepartment of Agriculture Technology in Agriculture Faculty
since 1999-2000 academic years.
Department of Agricultural Machinery
is going to
be a subdepartment of Agriculture Engineering in Faculty of
Agriculture from 2003-2004 autumn semester. At the same time our
department has continued its post-graduate (MSc) education under
Institute of Basic and Applied Sciences.
Undergraduate programme of agricultural technology is
covered especially second and third year. End of the third year,
students select the department according to their interests. Last
year of the program, students take particular courses of the
department and graduate.
Students take compulsory or elective courses from
their own department’s sub-programs and from other departments’
subprograms in last year programme.
Each department has its own laboratory;
application area and different equipment.
Agricultural Technology Programme
offers undergraduate (BSc Agricultural Engineering). Graduates find
job opportunities in agricultural processing companies, laboratories,
research institutes, marketing areas and government agencies.
The B.Sc. degree in Agricultural
Technology Programme, with an annual recruitment of forhty students,
is one of the five programmes; Agricultural Technology Programme,
Animal Production Programme, Food Engineering Programme and Plant
Science Programme in the Faculty of Agriculture. The Duration of the
multidisciplinary programme is four year. First year focuses on the
basic scientific subjects including chemistry, mathematics, physics,
computing. The second year lectures are mainly on engineering. The
third year lectures include basic professional subject that are
given from different departments. The last year lecture includes
compulsory and elective courses of sub departments.
Teaching is by lectures, tutorials and
practical work in the laboratories, practical works on the fields
and industry. Lectures are given in Turkish. All students undertake
a project in the final year. Assessment for lecture courses is one
midterm examination and one final examination. The average grade is
determined as the sum of mid-term examination (40%) and final
Agricultural Technology Programme has
many facilities for teaching and research. The main educational and
research topics are applied based on the departments. Department of
agricultural machinery in this program provides a high level of
education. The research and education topics in this department are
listed as follows:
Electrification, Natural Energy Resources, Greenhouse Techniques,
Tractors, Internal Combustion Engines
Planting and Fertilizing Mechanization,
Mechanization of Plant Protection and Agricultural Aviation,
Mechanization of Harvesting and Threshing Techniques,
and Planning of Agricultural Mechanization,
Mechanization in Animal Production,
Computer Applications in Agriculture
2. RESEARCH FACILITIES AND
Department of Agricultural Machinery
deals with design, construction of agricultural machines, management
and education on agricultural machine. The department has
laboratories and workshop to research on, metal workbench, engine,
measure systems, etc. In these conditions, prototypes of novel
agricultural machines and equipment are produced. Current research
activities in the department comprise development of available
machines and effective use of them in agricultural product. The
department has two professors, three assistant professor and two
research assistants, and offers a graduate program that leads to M.S.
in agricultural machinery. The current studies in the department
include agricultural field equipment and farmstead systems,
designing and managing systems for energy efficient tilling,
planting and harvesting, quality and standardisation in
manufacturing agricultural machinery, pictasia harvesting and
processing technologies, biological materials processing, electrical
and electronics technology in agricultural systems.
