AUTOMATIVE TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM

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 quality security.

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 Program.

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 vehicle service.

III. WORKING AREAS OF AUTOMOTIVE TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM GRADUATES

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 brief;

  • 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.

IV. THE VERTICAL TRANSFER FIELDS THAT GRADUATES MAY APPLY TO

  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Automotive Engineering
  • Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering
  • Marine Management Engineering
  • Naval and Marine Technologies Engineering
  • Aero-Body- Motor Maintenance
