Address : Suleyman Demirel University Agriculture Faculty Field Crops Department 32260 Isparta TURKEY  
General Information : Mission of the department is to solve agronomic problems for the region,to provide extension service to farmers to and conduct research to produce and to disseminate scientific knowledge. Department consists of two major divisions: Field crops and meadow-range management. In the field crops division agronomy, physiology, genetics and breeding of cereals, edible legumes, oil seed crops, medicinal and aromatic crops are investigated. In the meadow-range management division cover crops, production of grasses and pulse crops, establishing and restoration of natural and artificial pastures are studied. Field work for research and practical work for students are conducted at the experimental farms of the university. Laboratory works are conducted in cytogenetics, biotechnology and plant analyses laboratories of the department.  
Qualification Awarded : Graduates from field crops department obtain Agricultural Engineer title.  
Level of Qualification : First Cycle (Bachelor?s Degree).To be able to graduate from the departmen, 130 ± 10 credits must be earned, a graduation thesis must be conducted and 45-day long summer internship must be completed.  
Specific Admission Requirements : Students with a high school degree must take central placement examination (OYS) held by Higher Education Council (YOK). Those who pass the exam could qualify to register to Suleyman Demirel University. Enrollment deadlines and necessary documents for enrollment are announced by the office the president.

Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples : The graduates of the department have many opportunities of employment in a variety of state and private companies such as; Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Forestry and Environment, research institutes, municipal offices, national and multinational agriculture companies and small businesses.  
Access to Further Studies : Students who are enrolled in undergraduate programs and who fulfill necessary requirements may enroll to a minor program. Minor Program is not a separate degree program and it does not award a BS diploma. Students could enroll a second major program and receive a BS degree only if their first major program is close enough to chosen major program. Minor and major programs are set and regulated by the University Senate.  
Aims Of Programme : Objective of the program is to teach how to collect and analyse required data, to teach the methods of problem solving, to educate qualified persons who can develop present and novel technology, to create projects for rapid and direct identification and solutions of regional and nationwide agricultural problems, to educate individuals sensitive to environment in agricultural applications, to make research at national and international level, to provide individuals the scientific and professional ethics, to equip persons with self-confidence, entrepreneurial property and rationalist decision making.  
Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading : The examination, assessment and grading regulations have been set up for the university by the University Senate and the field crops department follows these regulations. Each course is assessed via a midterm exam. Exam dates are announced by the office of the dean. Additional exams for internships, practices etc may be held. In order to enter final examination students must meet following requirements:
1. enrollment for the current semester
2. %70 attendance of courses
3. %80 attendance of practices
4. attendance of midterm exam
The student is given a grade by the course instructor by taking into account the midterm examinations, final examinations, the semesters work and attendance. The Nominative Grade is found by adding forty percent of the avarage of the midterm exam and sixty percent of the final exam grade. This grade is accepted as crude grade. Then the avarage grade of the course for the whole class, distribution of grades and standard deviance of mean is calculated and transformed to letter and GPA grades.
Students are accepted as successful if their GPA?s is at least 2.0 and if they do not have any courses graded (FF), (FD), (NA) or (K). Students whose GPA?s is under 2.0 fail. Failed students may retake courses with grades (DC) and (DD) if they obtain approval from department head and students advisor.

In order to graduate from the department students must fulfill requirements of the department and the university and must obtain minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) 2.00.
Students who graduate within 4 years with GPA between 3.00-3.49 are awarded achievement certificate and with GPA between 3.50-4.00 are awarded outstanding achievement certificate.
 
Mode of Study (full-time, part-time, e-learning etc.) : Students must enroll as full time students to Agriculture Faculty and to departments.
