General Information : Geophysical engineering is mainly related about the exploration of natural sources like hydrocarbon, mine etc., determining the reservoir properties, surface and groundwater, geothermal, investigation of archeological an environmental, and site selection for all engineering structures, soil investigation, earthquake and other natural disasters.  
Qualification Awarded : We offer Msc and PhD  
Level of Qualification : Third Cycle (Master?s and Doctorate Degrees).  
Specific Admission Requirements : Students, willing to enrol in this graduate program, must comply with the legal and academic requirements to access the studies in Suleyman Demirel University according to the process established by the YOK (Higher Education Council) regulations. The detail information about the application (once or sometimes twice a year) and access requirements are released before academic year starts on its web site (w3.sdu.edu.tr). 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 stat of each academic year.
Under an established exchanges program or one approved by the university, exchange students from abroad may be accepted for the studies on the courses taugh in English. Or, if they are confident in Turkish, they may then enrol in any courses, running in Turkish, shown on the ?Course Structure? diagram. For example, erasmus students from abroad want to spend one term or two terms in agraduate programme at Suleyman Demirel University should apply to International Relation Office. The detail information on the application procedure is given in their web site (w3.erasmus.sdu.edu.tr/eng.htm)
 
Specific Arrangements for Recognition of Prior Learning (formal, non-formal and informal) : Regulations for past learning rules are published in the web address (http://w3.sdu.edu.tr).  
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 : Geophysical Engineering MSc. and Ph.D. programs are related to education and research about earth interier for the exploration of mine, minarel, gas, hydrocarbon, water and local or reegional rock and soil investigation for all man made structure  
Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples : Degree holders may work for
1. Project engineer for soil investigation in engineering office,
2. The engineer is resposible for survey, data processing and interpretation in related companies,
2. Universities.
 
Access to Further Studies : Upon a successful completion of the programme, student may continue with doctoral study in the same or similar scientific areas, which may accept students from Geophysical Engineering.  
Aims Of Programme : The program objective is to graduate higher degree students who learned the all aspect of the elementary principles and concepts in Geophysics and research about earth interior for natural resources, site selection for all engineering structure, have ability to develop reaching necessary knowledge, know the importance of geophysics in earth sciences, have research ability, product solution, may join national and international research project related earth science, and regard ethical values.  
Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading : Midterm(%40), Final(%60)  
Graduation Requirements : In order to gain the degree, the student is required to have minimum 60 ECTS credits lectures (from the graduate course programme) and successfully complated them. Then, the student should prepare a thesis after caring out a research on a topic supervised by a senior lecturer. On a successful oral examination on his/her work  
Mode of Study (full-time, part-time, e-learning etc.) : Full time
