Address : Department of Forest Engineering Faculty of Forestry Süleyman Demirel University 32260 Isparta, TURKEY  
General Information : Department of Forest Engineering at SDU offers education, research and consulting services in forestry in order to manage and protect forest resources within scientific perspective. Since forestry involves biological and ecological sciences as well as social and economical sciences, prospective students who want to work as foresters should be interested in sciences, be willing to work with local people, and must enjoy working outdoors. Following a 4 years of education with 61 courses (130 SDÜ credits, 240 ECTS credits); successful students receive a B.Sc. Diploma in "Forest Engineering". Once graduated, they will have a chance to work in variety of positions at Ministry of Environment and Forest and other public and private sector jobs related to natural resource management.  
Qualification Awarded : Bachelor of Science in Forest Engineering  
Level of Qualification : First Cycle (Bachelor?s Degree).Student who completes the first cycle of this program with 240 ECTS credits receives B.Sc. degree  
Specific Admission Requirements : Prospective students must have a sufficient score in ÖSS or YÖS (centralized exams for extrance to university for Turkish and foreign students)  
Specific Arrangements for Recognition of Prior Learning (formal, non-formal and informal) : Associate degree (2 year programs) students may apply for a transfer to a first cycle program (4 year) if they pass the DGS exam. After the admission, they are asked to pass a set of predetermined courses in a transition period, in order to continue their education in the new program. First cycle students may also appy for a transfer among equvalent programs after the first year of their education, if they have at least 3.0 GPA in their original program.  
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 : To give a high level quality education, to research and publish well qualified papers, to have graduates who are preferred as work force in national and international fields, to be recognized as a leading education and research institution in the field of Forrest Engineering  
Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples : Our graduates may work as sivil servants in several public institutes, such as OGM, AGM, DKMP GM, ORKÖY GM, which are part of the Ministry of Environment and Forest, and they can also work as private foresters  
Access to Further Studies : Students with sufficient scores in entrance exam to graduate programs (ALES) can continue their graduate education in second and third cycle (i.e. master's and PhD)  
Aims Of Programme : The aim of the program is to educate students who are well equipped in ecological, economical, social and technical subjects, who can use this information in sustainable management and protection of forest resources, and can develop solutions to environmental and forestry problems  
Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading : Students must pass mid-term and final exams for each course they take. Additonal exams, assignments, reports etc. may also contribute to course grades.  
Graduation Requirements : Students must pass compulsory and elective courses in the curriculum for 4 years (8 semesters), and must have a grade point average of at least 2.0. In addition, they should complete an summer intership program for 40 work days (at 2 different periods, each for 20 days), and should attend an excursion in the last year of their education.  
Mode of Study (full-time, part-time, e-learning etc.) : Full time attendince is required for Forest Egineering program, students should attend at least 70% of the courses.
