The Electrical and Electronics Technology Associate Degree Program strives to bring up intermediate workforce with advanced professional skills, both in theory and practice, enabling them to use the computers and technology as and when needed. Program graduates are highly motivated individuals who possess a second language, easily adapt to change, work in a team effectively, and possess professional ethics, cultural awareness and effective communication skills. The main areas of our curriculum are electronics, microprocessors, electrical installations and motor control techniques.
The freshman year focuses on the development of a second language and the introduction and analysis of the sub-fields of the profession through courses training students on the basic electric, electronics, numerical electronics and computer skills. During the second year, courses focus on both theory and application and cover the topics of the architecture, programming and application of microprocessors, electricity design and electronic area of a house or industrial field. During the third year, students have a chance to convert theory into practice through the graduation project and industrial internship practice. The laboratory work has a considerable weight in the course evaluation system and separate projects are assigned for each course. Students also benefit from orientation programs focusing on career-related motivation and production techniques.
Electrical and Electronics Technology program has the ASIIN accreditation. ASIIN (Accreditation Agency Specialized in Accrediting Degree Programs in Engineering, Informatics, the Natural Sciences and Mathematics) is one of the most important quality assurance institutions for technical and scientific study programs
Having gained the approval of the Turkish Higher Education Board (YÖK) and the Higher Education Planning, Evaluation, Accreditation and Coordination Council (YÖDAK), the program offers high quality education through the prominent academic staff and up-to-date technological facilities. The program also offers hands-on practice for students through laboratories and internship opportunities.
The Electrical and Electronics Technology Associate Degree Program boasts two electronics laboratories housing single experiment tables containing an oscilloscope, a power unit and indicator generators for 20 students. The Electrical System and Household Appliances Laboratory offers practice opportunities for students in the area of the connection techniques in electricity installations. There is also three phase compensation system in the workshop. The microprocessor laboratory provides students opportunities for Arduino microprocessor training and PLC. The LPFK fast PCB prototyping device is also available in department.
