Faculty of Engineering - Mechanical Engineering - First Cycle Programme



General Description
History
The Mechanical Engineering Department is one of the nine departments of the Engineering Faculty of Ege University. Each year 40 undergraduate students are admitted to the department. In the department, where a contemporary Mechanical Engineering education is given, the undergraduate education is four years, excluding the first year for English preparation. Students not comprehensive in English must attend an one‑year Preparatory Program offered by the School of Foreign Languages. Once the proper comprehension level in English is accomplished, students can then begin the first year in the department. 30 % of the courses are held in English and the rest being held in Turkish. By 2008, a total of 400 students are being instructed by 6 full time professors, 2 associate professors, 9 assistant professors and 11 research and teaching assistants. The Mechanical Engineering Department was founded in 1994 within the Engineering Faculty of Ege University. In 1994, 32 students were enrolled and the first students graduated in 1998. The department has steadily developed academically since its foundation.
Qualification Awarded
The Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering (first cycle in Mechanical Engineering) is awarded to the graduates who have successfully completed all courses in the curriculum, including a 14-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
In the Department, there are five subsections: Energy, Construction-Manufacturing Technologies, Machine Theory and Dynamics, Mechanics and Thermodynamics. The program is designed to provide the fundamentals of contemporary mechanical engineering. The first year of courses mainly consists of physics, chemistry, mathematics, computing and basic engineering courses, to bring the knowledge level of students with different backgrounds to the same level. The compulsory courses offered in second, third, and fourth years include Fundamentals of Mechanics, Materials Science, Manufacturing Techniques, Thermodynamics, and Fundamentals of Electronics. In the third year the students are separated into two branches namely the thermodynamics-energy branch and construction-manufacturing technologies branch. The third year and fourth year of curriculum include elective courses organised in thematic groups, offering a wide spectrum of mechanical engineering courses. Students spend totally 12 weeks for summer practices in 3 summers. After the first year, the students spend four weeks in the Mechanical Engineering machine shop. After each of the third and fourth years the students have 4 weeks of training in industry related to mechanical engineering. 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
Mechanical Engineering which is one of the oldest and most extensive areas of Engineering activities deals with machinery,energy and manufacturing-production methods. Mechanical Engineers design and fabricate machines and equipment for all the branches in the industry as well as machine tools. For example, turbines, printing presses, earth-moving machines,food processors, air conditioning and refrigeration systems, artificial hearts and limbs, aircraft, diesel locomotives, passenger cars, trucks and engines for vehicles of mass transportation, etc. With their expertise in the field of energy they deal with the design,manufacture and operation of hydraulic turbines which will drive electrical generators and boilers to create steam power,engines, turbines and pumps, They design and operate power plants, they deal with economic combustion of the fuels,turning heat energy into mechanical force and use this power in optimum circumstances. In the field of heating, ventilation and air conditioning mechanical engineers provide controlled temperature and humidity conditions in houses, offices, commercial buildings and industrial facilities. They develop equipment and systems for keeping nutrients in the cold, cold storage and ice manufacturing plants Mechanical Engineers also works in the design of machines for passenger,cargo and warships , design and manufacture of cars, trucks and buses in the automotive industry and also in design of new aircraft and spacecraft in air-space industry.
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 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. At least one midterm examination (and quiz) 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. 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 Committee that there exist genuine and valid reasons for this. The semester grades are determined by adding forty percent of the midterm exam and sixty percent of the final exam grade. 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. For the assessment of success of the students enrolled in before the academic year of 2004-2005, if the final exam and the semester grades exceed 60 or be equal to 60 , the student will be successful from this course. 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. In the nontechnical optional courses, students and lecturer arrange the method of evaluation. The student’s success in these courses is awarded by “successful” in the transcript of records.
