       CIVIL ENGINEERING PROGRAM

I. THE PURPOSE OF THE PROGRAM

The purpose of the Civil Technology Program is to bring up Civil Technicians who have the practice skills and theoretical information at maximum levels and will work in private sectors and in public foundations and institutions. The Purposes of the program;

  • Having information about all types of construction materials being used in building construction,
  • Having information and skills in the construction of purpose fitting, substantial, stable, earthquake-resistant buildings,
  • Having information about the organization of construction area,
  • Having information and skills in the subjects of length in meters, discovery and progress payment,
  • Being able to draw (AUTOCAD) and calculate static-concrete (STA4CAD,IDECAD, PROBINA…etc.)  by using computer programs,
  • Being able to do the experiments in ground mechanics, construction materials, concrete and asphalt materials,
  • Having basic information and skills in highway, potable waters and steel constructions,
  • Having information about the damage reasons and types in the buildings and the reinforcement of them,
  • Having basic information and skills in construction inspection and contemporary construction techniques,
  • Having basic information about vocational applications

II. TECHNICAL BACKGROUND AND LABORATORIES

In the Civil Technology Program, there are: a ground laboratory where the experiments of ground classification, a Hydrometer, a Pitet, proctor experiments, a box cutting experiment, 3-axes and 1-axes pressure experiments, consolidation experiments;

a cement laboratory where the specification of the physical features of cement; an asphalt laboratory where the specification of bitumen material's features and the stability of hot mixtures and the calculation of the value of creeping;

a material laboratory where the speed of creeping of steel materials, durability of pulling and the measuring of its behavior;

concrete and material laboratories where aggregate and concrete experiments and researches are carried out they are all free for student use.

In order to use stable calculating, designing and drawing, we have a common computer laboratory which is used with other departments. In our department, there are four experienced, practical and qualified instructors. By following the new advances, our department, with the direction of new advances and updating new and contemporary construction techniques, by using newly produced and used construction materials, new applications; drawings, designing and calculating with a computer are carried out and the needs and the desires of the sector are met.

III. WORKING AREAS OF  GRADUATES

  • Official institutions (Highway Commission, The State Water Supply Administration, Special Provincial Administration, Municipalities…etc.),
