Agricultural Faculty
Department of Soil Science and Plant Nutrition
 
General Information : In this department, education and researches are done about the subjects soil features for sustainable agricultural production,usage potentials, ideal usage and management techniques. Substructions of land, laboratories and greenhouses are available. Academic staff consits of 7 lecturers and 1 research assistant.  
Qualification Awarded : agricultural engineer  
Level of Qualification : First Cycle (Bachelor?s Degree).Students are required to renew their registrations by paying the student contribution or tuition fee which is determined by the Council of Ministers at the beginning of each semester and within the period specified in the academic calendar.

Courses that students will take this semester/year is determined with academic advisors during the registration.Students that begin to study in a first class of a program applied to a giving course system have to take all lessons belong to the year they register.

To give a practical training about soil features for a sustainable agricultural production and livable environment,usage potentials,determination of ideal usage and management techniques,plant nutrition and fertilization and fertilizer production technology.

 
Qualification Requirements and Regulations : National qualifications frameworks may contain levels (or intermediate qualifications) within the three Bologna cycles (e.g. a short cycle within the first cycle). These levels allow institutions to structure a particular qualification and regulate progression through the qualification. Qualification Requirements and Regulations are enacted by YÖK (The Council Of Higher Education) in Turkey.  
Profile of The Programme : The aim is to provide well-qualified labor power in addition to finding scientific solutions to the department?s working studies in an agriculture sector.  
Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples : Graduated students from this department can find job opportunities in agriculture province managements affiliated to The Ministry of Agriculture,the Ministries of C ulture and Tourism and Environment and Forest, universities, agricultural research institutions, province private managements, munic ipalities, the state water supply administration, banks, medicine and fertilizer vendors and the fields of agricultural consultancy.  
Access to Further Studies : Enrolled in undergraduate programs, which provide the necessary conditions for students who, in addition to its undergraduate program for certification are given an opportunity to monitor the Minor Program. Minor Program does not imply a separate degree program. Also, in terms of issues that are close to their undergraduate program with another degree program by executing a second bachelor's degree to receive the Double Major program can sign up. Minor and Double Major according to the directions set by the University Senate düzenlernir.  
Aims Of Programme : In this department; doing a basic and practical researches about the subjects knowing, evaluating,management and protecting of our soil intended to provide an undergraduate program to have enough agricultural engineers and supporting agricultural developing by sharing the new information and technologies with officials are aimed.  
Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading : At least one midterm exam is performed for a course in each semester/year. Midterm/final exams are determined by deanery and they are done in announced date and place. Training,implementation and laboratory tests can be done with the decision of the faculty board.

To attend a midterm/final exam;
? To renew registration,
? To continue to the theoretical course at least %70,
? To continue to the course?s practice or laboratory if it has and to be successful,
? To attend to a midterm which is done in a semester/yearç

When lectures and laboratories are evaluated separately, the success conditions that is above is exactly the same for laboratories.

To determine a student?s course grade, first of all a crude grade is calculated taking into consideration the contribution of a midterm and any other educational activities as the method of relative evaluation.This grade is accepted as a crude grade via 100 scale in a evaluation method. All crude grades via 100 scale are adapted to 4 system by the Senate taking into consideration class? general success level,class average and Standard deviation for all students.

In this evaluation,the contribution of a midterm or other studies succeed to a midterm to the course grade is 40%; the contribution of a grade that is taken from a final exam is 60%.

Students whose general grade average is 2.00 at least are successful in a course on condition that this course isn?t (FF),(FD),(NA),(K). Students whose general grade average is below 2.00 aren?t assumed as successful.Students who are unsuccessful can renew the courses that they take (DC) and (DD) with the suggestion of the advisor and the approval of the head of department.
