CONTROL AND AUTOMATION TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM

I. THE PURPOSE OF THE PROGRAM

The main purpose of the program is to educate needed and qualified ''Control and Automation Technicians'' in control and automation technologies. By educating intermediate persons who are able to control the industrial process and who can use the current production technologies actively. It is aimed to improve the human sources of our country in this field and to support regional and national development.

The program lasts two years. During the first year, it is the aim that the students are provided with basic electric, electronic, mechanic, and computer skills. In the second year, the students are skilled and informed about mechanic, montage-maintenance- reparation of electric and electronic equipments, measuring and controlling the variables of level, pressure, heat, flow, humidity and Ph, the application of PLC systems in automation, the remote and in-place control of the process, the applications of different types of microcontroller used in process controlling and the application fields of pneumatic and hydraulic power systems.          

II. TECHNICAL BACKGROUND AND LABORATORIES

The program, which started its education and teaching activities in 1994-1995, has 3 computer an  laboratories with 30 computers, overhead projector and a smart board, 1 language laboratory and 30 classrooms. Moreover, there is a Communication Technologies Laboratory, an Electronic Technologies Laboratory, a PLC and SCADA Laboratory, a Mechanics and Motor Laboratory, an Electric Machines Laboratory, a Control and Automation Technologies Laboratory, an Electric Measurement and Power Systems Laboratory, and a Printed Circuit Laboratory. All classrooms have computer and overhead projectors. There is equipment such as machine tools, automatic remote controls, PLC, SCADA, pneumatic systems, hydraulic systems, measurement information, electric machines and drivers for electric and electronic applications in sufficient number.

III. WORKING AREAS OF THE GRADUATES

After being educated in vocational courses, our graduates may work in the fields of public and private sectors, technical services, maintenance-reparation units, electric-electronic and mechanic montage and demontage tasks, programming microcontrollers, electric-electronic and machine manufacturing factories, control and remote control systems, PLC programming, Pneumatic- Hydraulic Systems and robotics, and they may establish their own business.
