I. THE PURPOSE OF THE PROGRAM
Amasya Technological Sciences Vocational High School Automotive
Technologies Program aims to bring up technical personnel who
know and internalize the terminologies and concepts of automotive
technologies, have the skills of knowing and applying the needed
new systems, to solve vehicle maintenance and reparation problems,
meet the needs of the sector rapidly , to maintain, repair and
process the working and equipped system and to work in the
processing, designing and preparation systems including
II. TECHNICAL BACKGROUND AND LABORATORIES
There are 12 diesel motors, 3 gasoline motors, 3 automatic
transmissions, 2 manual transmissions, equipment belonging to
automotive electric and electronics, all equipment needed for
vehicle reparation-maintenance, an oil discharging pump, a 2.5 ton
electromechanic vehicle lift in the Automative Technology
General vehicle reparation-maintenance activities are carried
out in our department.
Our department projects are increasing and improving in quality
and success rates. Such projects include as go-karts,
electrical vehicles and gasoline vehicles which completed in
previous years. However, bio-diesel generation, electric energy
generation from wind power, lawn mowing machines and electrical
cars are continving projects.
In our department, the students are informed in detail about
welding machines, hardness measuring, diverse metal microscopes and
surface roughness measuring tension test equipments.
Moreover, the 700 m2 automotive workshop is under construction
and will have all the equipment that is needed for authorized
III. WORKING AREAS OF AUTOMOTIVE TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM
Automotive technicians may work nearly all stages of main and
subsidiary industry automotive factories under the label and
responsibility of technicians. However, they are seen in high
number in the automotive montage lines and have active roles in
manufacturing studies, they provide communication and connection
between engineers, organizers, managers and workers, and they are
placed as team leaders in the quality circle, they take
responsibility as instructors in educational activities in a
workplace of lower level workers.
In our department, technical trips/tours are arranged and
organized so that the students can follow the developing and
changing improvements and by this way it is aimed to contribute to
the students' mission and vision.
Beside the production, another part of the automotive sector
that needs attention consist of services, point of sales and
education centers which can be named as after sale service units.
The responsibility of automotive technicians in these units is
because of the transition of serial production to lean production,
customer based quality, and the occurrence of sale principles.
They work and take responsibility in these units such as group
leader service management, sale group leadership, spare parts,
service workshop management, and personnel education fields. In
- Operator and foremen in vehicle technical services,
- Operator or foremen in maintenance-reparation jobs,
- Operator of automotive equipments,
- Operator or foremen in automotive manufacturing industry,
- Technical drawings reading-writing,
- Measuring and use of control equipments,
- In the fields of hydraulic- pneumatic,
They may work in automotive and spare parts firms as sale
persons and customer representatives.
