General Information : The education program of Department of Forest Prodcuts Engineering meets the expectations of forest products industry and provide basic information related to the forest ındustry sectors. The undergraduate curriculum emphasizes communication, problem-solving and technical skills. The curriculum constructed to achieve these objectives contain courses in the field of wood mechanics and technology, wood protection, forest products chemistry and technology and machineries of forest industry, and additional courses such as computer applications, business management and behavioural sciences. In addition to compulsory courses, the students are given the chance of taking courses from the list of elective courses based on their own preferences, which makes the programme flexible from the students' perspective. This enables the department to educate forest prodcuts engineers who have the competency to work individually or in groups to identify wood science and technology problems, find solutions for them and apply them with an ethical responsibility.  
Qualification Awarded : Forest Products Engineer  
Level of Qualification : First Cycle (Bachelor?s Degree).Student who completes the first cycle of this program receives BSC degree  
Specific Admission Requirements : High school diploma Obtaining the required score from National Exam  
Specific Arrangements for Recognition of Prior Learning (formal, non-formal and informal) : In order to be accepted from a vacational school, student must pass the DGS exam and complete and succeed predetermined courses. Students who have started studies in other universities within or outside of the country may apply for their recognition. The recognition record is unique for each student and therefore the procedure is carried out accordingly before the start of each academic year.  
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 : Providing strong theoretical and experimental background in this field, to educate students that can work in forest products industries  
Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples : The graduates of the forest industrial engineering department has many opportunities of employment in a varitey of state and private companies. Graduates have secured entry-level and middle management positions with good starting salaries and opportunities for advancement. Employers range from very small businesses to large multinational firms, and are located in urban centres as well as rural areas. The program's interdisciplinary nature allows graduates to pursue careers in areas such as material processing, wood finishing, product design, quality control, sales and marketing of forest products industry  
Access to Further Studies : Students completing undergraduate programs with at least 2.0 (out of 4) academic average and having the required score from ALES (Academic Graduate Exam) may apply to the graduate programs. The graduate programs are designed to lead MSc and PhD degrees any field in wood science or pulp and paper science and technology.  
Aims Of Programme : Provide strong theoretical and experimental background to educate students that can work in forest products industries or other related areas  
Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading : The examination, assessment and grading regulations have been set up for the university by the University Senate and the Department of Forest Products Engineering is bound by these regulations. Each course is assessed via a midterm exam, a second mid-term exam composed of quizzes, homeworks and assignments, and a final end-of-term exam, with contributions of 30%, 20% and 50% respectively. The marking is made out of 100. Grades of 81-100 is assigned a letter grade of AA, 76-80 BA, 70-75 BB, 60-69 CB, 50-59 CC, 45-49 DC, 40-44 DD, 30-39 FD and 0-29 FF. The AA is the highest grade and has a grade credit of 4.00, BA 3.5, BB 3.0, CB 2.5, CC 2.0, DC 1.5, DD 1.0, FD 0.5 and FF 0.0. Grades of AA to CC are pass, DD to FF fail, and DC is conditional pass and requires a CGPA of at least 2.0 for that term. The details given for each course in the programme include the detailed assessment methods together with a description of the second mid-term exam.  
Graduation Requirements : The graduation requirements for the Department of Forest Products Engineering are the same as the qualification requirements and regulations. There is no additional requirement to secure the Bachelor's Degree provided that the students have passed all the courses in the curriculum with at least a DC grade, had a cumulative gross point average of at least 2.00 out of 4.00, and completed the compulsory practical taraining period of 50 days and had a passing grade for the reports prepared for theses.  
Mode of Study (full-time, part-time, e-learning etc.) : Program accepts full time students.
