Faculty of Engineering - Leather Engineering - First Cycle Programme



General Description
History
Department of leather engineering is a young and dynamic department started Education&Teaching in the E.U Faculty of Engineering since 1999-2000 with decision of Turkish Council of Higher Education dated 23.02.1999.
Qualification Awarded
The Bachelor's Degree in Leather Engineering ( first cycle in Leather Engineering) is awarded to the graduates who have successfully completed all courses in the curriculum and defenced their thesis proposal and thesis work in related area successfully.
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 this programme, it is essential to discipline the engineers, who can use recently developing technologies and have the properties on realizing production and modification of any leather type by using basic or alternative methods to usage place and aims, controlling physical and chemical properties in all stages of the leather production, evaluating and marketing of leather items, reducing solid wastes and effluents of leather industry and converting these wastes to a suitable form for achieving to the economy as an additional value.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates With Examples
The students who graduated from Leather Engineering Department can be employed at leather factories, leather chemicals firms, companies producing leather products and various public organizations.
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
Measurement and Assessment method executed in all courses takes place in Individual Course Description in detail.
