Faculty of Engineering - Chemical Engineering - First Cycle Programme



General Description
History
The history of the Chemical Engineering Department at Ege University goes back to 1968 when it was one of the Departments of the Engineering Science Faculty and in those days had very limited facilities. The Department was moved to its current location in 1977. In a limited time period it had been as a subsection of the Chemistry Faculty. In 1982 the Department of Chemical Engineering was reformed and placed under the Faculty of Engineering. The Chemical Engineering Department has steadily improved in the areas of academics and education since its beginning in 1982. In the Department undergraduate and graduate programmes have been carried out.
Qualification Awarded
The Bachelor's Degree in Chemical Engineering ( first cycle in Chemical Engineering) is awarded to the graduates who have successfully completed all courses in the curriculum, including a 8-week ( 2 period each 4- week) industrial training period.
Level of Qualification
First Cycle
Specific Admission Requirements
The general requirements explained in “General Admission Requirements” of Information on the Institution part are applied for admission of students.
Specific Arrangements For Recognition Of Prior Learning (Formal, Non-Formal and Informal)
The rules and regulations for recognition of formal prior learning are well defined. Transfer can be made among the institutions of which equivalency is recognized by Higher Education Council. Also successful vocational school graduates to continue their educaiton to obtain Bachelor’s degrees if they are successful in the selection and the placement examination (DGS, i.e. vertical transfer examination) are admitted. The courses to be taken by these students are determined by the relevant department, on the basis of courses they have completed in the programs from which they have graduated. Recognition of prior non-formal and in-formal learning is at the beginning stage in Turkish Higher Education Institutions. Ege University and hence of the Department is not an exception to this. However, exams of exemption are organised at the start of each year at the University for the courses of English Language and Computer Skills. The students who have completed the proficiencies for these courses on his/her own or through other means, and believe that they have achieved the learning outcomes specified are given the right to take the exemption exam. The students who achieve a passing grade from these exams are held exempt from the related course in the curriculum.
Qualification Requirements and Regulations
Students must obtain a grade point average of at least 2.00 out of 4.00 and successfully pass all courses on the programme (equivalent to a total of 240 ECTS).
Profile of The Programme
The Chemical Engineering program has been designed to provide the fundamentals of contemporary chemical engineering. In the Department a new curriculum has been applied since the academic year of 2006-2007. The first year of curriculum mainly consists of physics, chemistry, mathematics, computing , basic engineering and technical communication and strategies in problem solving courses, to bring the knowledge level of students with different backgrounds to the same level. The required courses offered in second, third, and fourth years include Basic Chemical Engineering Calculations, Unit Operations, Thermodynamics, Reaction Engineering, Process Safety, Process Control, Chemical Technologies, Chemical Engineering Laboratory I, II, Chemical Engineering Design and a Diploma Project. In the new curriculum the Conceptual Design I and II courses are placed to become familiar students with the concept of design and to prepare them for the Chemical Engineering Design course taught in the last year. The third year and fourth year of curriculum include elective courses organised in thematic groups, offering a wide spectrum of chemical engineering courses. The curriculum is also enriched by social elective courses to develop the intelligent approach of the students to industrial and organizational problems. Students spend totally eight weeks in two different industries for their summer training (each lasts for 4 weeks) at the end of the 4th and 6th semesters. The Diploma Project undertaken in the fourth year places an emphasis on the introduction to Research and Development and is submitted as a thesis.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates With Examples
The graduates of the Bachelor's programme in Chemical Engineering Department have opportunities of employment in a variety of state and private funded companies. The main state companies where they can work are chemical and related engineering departments of academic instutions as academic staff, and governmental bodies and enterprises as engineer. Chemical Engineers holding Bachelor's Degree play a key role in industries. The Chemical Process Industries such as agricultural, petroleum, paint, plastics, polymers, pharmaceutical, pulp and paper, detergent and cosmetics, cement, ceramics, artificial fibres, primary metals, glass, specialty chemicals, textiles, food and drink, environment, biotechnology and microelectronics are the employment areas of today’s Chemical Engineers. All these depend on chemical engineers to tailor manufacturing technology to the requirements of their products and to integrate product design with process design. Chemical Engineers can work in quality and process control, manufacturing, safety, research, product design and development, technical assistance, and marketing and sales, as technical or managerial personnel.
Access to Further Studies
The graduates holding Bachelor’s Degree are eligible to apply to Master’s Degree programmes at national level and /or international level both in the same and in related disciplines.
Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading
Students are required to take a mid-term examination and/or complete other assigned projects/homework during the semester and, additionally, are required to take a final examination and/or complete a final project for course evaluation.The assessment for each course is described in detail in “Individual Course Description”. Students must attend classes, practices and examinations. Students' attendance is followed by the Instructor concerned. For almost all required and technical elective courses there are written examinations, in which most cases student must solve selected problems by calculation. The midterm examinations are compacted and given in the ninth week of the semester. One midterm examination is given during each semester. Dates of midterm examinations are announced by the Department in the first month of the semester. In addition to midterm examinations and other work, students are required to take a final examination (and a make-up examination if they do'nt pass). Final examinations are held at the appropriate place and hour as decided and announced by the Department. Students are given a make-up examination for any examination which they have not attended if it is accepted by the Faculty Administrative Comittee that there exist genuine and valid reasons for this. The semester grades are determined by weighing the midterm exam grade (between 40-70 %) and final (or make-up) exam grade (between %60-30). The type and contribution of the educational activities such as reports, homeworks, quizzes, seminar presentations or individual oral discussions, and performance in laboratory work on the assessment are announced by the instructor at the beginning of the semester. In the new assessment system which has been introduced since the academic year of 2004-2005, the semester grades are assessed through Relative Assessment System. The success states of the students are specified by Grade Point Averages (GPA) and Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) computed at the end of each term. (GPA) is the weighted grade average of the term the student is enrolled in. CGPA is the weighted grade average of the students computed by considering all the courses in the course plan of the enrolled department or program starting from the entrance to the university. (GPA) and (CGPA) are computed with the weighted grade averages. Weighted grade average is obtained by dividing the sum of the product of course credits and the weight coefficients equivalent of the letter grades to the total credit. Both (GPA) and CGPA are determined by adding all the grades students get from credit courses ranging from (AA) to (FF) to assessment. Students whose CGPA value is at least 2.00 are considered successful on condition that no course has been marked as (FF), (FD). Students whose CGPA values are below 2.00 are considered failure. Starting from the end of the second term, Students’ GPAs have to be at least 1.80 to be able to take classes of the upper terms. Courses which do not require midterm and/or final examinations are determined by the course teacher. Under these circumstances, the semester grade is given by evaluating the work done throughout the semester.
