Overview

Admission

Electrical-Electronic Engineering Department admits students for I. and II. formal education programs through a central exam administered by the National Student Selection and Placement Center (ÖSYM). The quotas of programs are 90 students in 2010-2011 academic year. Additionally, students can be admitted from other associate and undergraduate programs and schools in a specific quota approved by the Department Administrative Board and the Higher Education Council (YÖK).

Qualification Awarded

This department is subject to first stage degree system for 240 ECTS credits in Electrical-Electronic Engineering area in the higher education. When the program was completed successfully and program qualifications are provided, an undergraduate degree in Electrical-Electronic Engineering area can be taken.

Qualification Requirements and Regulations

In order to acquire the undergraduate degree in the Electrical-Electronic Engineering area it is necessary to complete all compulsory and elective courses successfully (for a total of 240 ECTS), and to achieve at least 2.0 over 4.0 of Grade Point Average (GAP).

Curriciulum

The first year of the curriculum includes basic sciences, computer programming and introduction to Electrical-Electronic Engineering courses. The second and the third years are focused on the courses in Electrical-Electronic Engineering area. The fourth year includes technical elective courses and a graduation project. Additionally, there are social selective courses in the third and the fourth years.

Examination, Assessment and Grading

All students have to register for courses at the beginning of the semester and attend to classwork for at least 70% and to laboratory work for at least 80% in order to be allowed to take the final exam. Students are subjected to at least one midterm and one final exam for each course. The evaluation criteria for each course were announced by the relevant faculty member/staff at the beginning of the semester.

The contribution of the final and midterm exam to the grade point is 50% (the points obtained from the assessment instruments, such as homeworks, projects, quizzes etc., may also participate the evaluation as the midterm exam). All exams are evaluated over 100 points. In the final exam at least 40 points have to be taken. Students having one of AA, BA, BB, CB and CC letter grades from any course are considered to be succesfull in that course. DC and DD points refer to conditional success. The condition for having been successful in a particular course with DC or DD grades is to get at least 2.0 points GPA.
