Faculty of Science - Chemistry - First Cycle Programme



General Description
History
Chemistry Department is one of seven departments in Ege University Faculty of Science. It was established in 1955 as the "Chemistry Institute". It is first attached to the Faculty of Science in 1961, and then became the Chemistry department in 1971. Chemistry department consists of Analytical, Inorganic, Physical Chemistry and Organic Chemistry branches. Chemistry education comprises a total of 5 years including one year of foreign language education. After being junior, chemistry students have to complete their 22-working-day-internship. The students who complete the whole education program receive their Bachelor of Science in chemistry degree and they can work as "Chemist". The mission of the Chemistry Department is to produce well trained, creative, researcher and practitioner personnel who have scientific thinking in the direction of the requirements and the development of both chemistry and industry. In addition, it is to be able to use the earned knowledge in the solutions of problems of national and regional industry organizations and to do research and publications in various fields of chemistry. The vision of the Chemistry Department is to improve organizational ties with the world of chemical science and chemical technology in national and international arena and to create a competitive environment for bringing chemistry education and research to a level equivalent to world’s qualified universities. Students of the Chemistry Department can receive a second undergraduate degree or a "certificate of Minor" by studying "double major" or "Minor", respectively, in other departments of both Science Faculty and other faculties of Ege University. Moreover, the students acquire the opportunity to work as chemistry teachers in secondary schools by taking courses for pedagogical proficiency in teaching.
Qualification Awarded
The Bachelor's Degree in Chemistry( first cycle in Chemistry) is awarded to the graduates who have successfully completed all courses in the curriculum with a title conferred "Chemist".
Level of Qualification
First Cycle
Specific Admission Requirements
Candidates must have a high school or equivalent degree and they must have got enough score from University Student Selection Exam.
Specific Arrangements For Recognition Of Prior Learning (Formal, Non-Formal and Informal)
Exemption exams for English Prep School and Computer courses are carried out and those who pass the exam for exemption are exempt from the corresponding course in the course program.
Qualification Requirements and Regulations
The students who have completed all courses successfully (for a total of 240 ECTS), achieve a CGPA of at least 2.00 out of 4.00 and have a passing score from their internship are awarded with Bachelor Science in Chemistry.
Profile of The Programme
The department contains four divisions; analytical, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry. The Chemistry education programme includes one-year English language preparation period followed by 4 years. At the end of the Chemistry Bachelor of Science programme, they are awarded as Chemist. Students who are graduated from the Chemistry Department may apply to MSc and PhD programmes in Chemistry. The Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry is awarded to students who have successfully completed all courses in the curriculum, including 45 working days apprenticeship (course of instruction) period. Chemistry degree program is designed to provide the students the fundamentals of chemistry. The first year courses mainly consist of physics, general chemistry, mathematics and computing to bring the knowledge levels of students from different background to the same level. The compulsory courses offered in further years include physical, analytical, inorganic and organic chemistry. These courses also include laboratory studies to provide technical skills necessary to enter their career as chemists. It was mainly aimed to give the students an analytical approach for solving any problem and handling complex information as well as the laboratory experience. Third and fourth year of curriculum include elective courses especially designed to developed the intelligent approach of the students to the problems of industry.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates With Examples
Alumni of the Chemistry Department serve as researchers, practitioners and consultants in production quality control departments and in development of production methods (R & D) in various industry organizations . Job opportunities for our them in the research units of public and private organizations are very high.
Access to Further Studies
The graduates can continue their higher educations by entering master and Ph. D. programs in the Graduate School of Natural and Applied Sciences.
Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading
One written midterm and one written final exam are carried out throughout one semester. Raw success score concerning a course exam, is a score obtained by adding the 40% of the average of midterm and, if any, other educational activities and the 60% of the the final exam. Raw success score must be at least 60. If the student has a raw success score is 60 or higher, then he/she is considered as succesful from that course.
Graduation Requirements
Satisfying the conditions mentioned in "Qualification Requirements and Regulations" section is enough for graduation.
