FACULTY OF AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERING
DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURAL STRUCTURES AND IRRIGATION
The scope of the Department's activities includes offering
undergraduate and graduate courses and research possibilities to
solve problems related to irrigation and drainage i. The Department
participate farmer-training programs, seminars and join
interdisciplinary projects with other departments and organizations
in Worldwide Two associate professors,
one assistant professors and
are currently employed in the department. We, as a department,
aspire to make Harran Plain a model in a global society for
stewardship and responsible use of soil and water resources. We
value organizational dynamics that respond to changing needs. We
identify priority issues at the local, national and international
levels through open discussion among ourselves and our partners.
The specialization areas in this field are irrigation and drainage,
agricultural hydrology, soil and water conservation structures, land
consolidation, rural settlement planning, and environmental control.
In the department there are laboratories for Irrigation and drainage.
The department has a surveying, irrigation, drainage and soil
mechanics for practices and scientific research, a department
library with journals and books written Turkish and other languages,
a computer lab for undergraduate and graduate students. Department
graduates are generally employed in Ministry of Agriculture, General
Directorate of Rural Affairs, GAP Regional Development
Administration, other state institutions, and private sector.
The department has 2 associate, 1 assistant professors and 1
It offers undergraduate and graduate programs but not Ph.D. program.

1.1. Departmental Facilities
The department of agricultural structure and irrigation building (sharing
with the other departments) consists of offices, classrooms, and
laboratories. Right now, there are some difficulties finding offices
for everyone but soon department of agricultural engineering will
move to the main campus and will solve most of the problems related
to offices, laboratories, and computer labs.
The department of agricultural engineering has 20 computers
available to undergraduate students use. The department of
agricultural structure and irrigation shares three irrigation, and
soil testing labs with other departments. In those labs most of the
soil related measurement can be performed.
1.2. Qualification Awarded
The department offers education in both undergraduate and graduate
programs. The department offers undergraduate classes related to the
agricultural structure, irrigation, and also drainage. Duration of
classes for undergraduate program lasts for 4 years and graduate
program is set for 2 years.
1.3. Educational and Professional Goals
The department of agricultural structures and irrigation tries to
provide knowledge of the science and technology in agricultural
structures, irrigation, and drainage. Students are educated to be
able to have sound knowledge and understanding in their field of
study. Professional goals include; conducting research projects on
problems related to irrigation and drainage in the GAP region, tries
to adopt new development and technologies in irrigation and drainage
in the area, and pass the information to the farmers in the region.
