ELECTRICAL and ELECTRONICS ENGINEERING PROGRAMME (ENG.)


D.1. General Information about Program

The Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department of Hacettepe University has been founded in 1974 and the first engineers have graduated in 1978. The Department admits undergraduate students via the OSYM system and currently has 663 undergraduate and 475 graduate students.

Main research areas in the department are Communication Systems, Digital Signal Processing, Electromagnetics and Microwave Techniques, Control Systems, Computers and Computer Networks, Microelectronics, Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Machines and Power Systems.

Within the first three years, undergraduate students take various courses to gain certain skills and the theoretical background in all essential areas of electrical and electronics engineering. In their senior year, they have the opportunity to specialize in the above subjects by electing the appropriate courses.

The language of instruction in the Department is English. Students who fail in the English proficiency test are required to attend a prep school before being admitted to the Department.

If the student has taken some courses in an institution of higher education either within the country or abroad before starting the Departmental program, it may be possible to transfer these credits. The rules and procedures regarding this kind of transfer are as given in Hacettepe University Undergraduate Education and Examination Regulations. http://www.oid.hacettepe.edu.tr/index_sub.php?grp=y&dir=&file=lisans_20120928_0934&filetype=html&submenuheader=3

D.7. Goals and Objectives

Back

The purpose of the program is to contribute to accumulation of scientific and technological knowledge in various fields of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, to train highly qualified engineers equipped with state of the art knowledge and analytical thinking and problem solving skills, and to support the country's technological progress by collaborating with industrial partners.

D.12. Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples

Back

Our graduates do not encounter difficulty in finding employment and are especially preferred by R&D units of hi-tech companies. Most of our graduates are either employed as engineers by Turkey's leading companies such as ASELSAN, HAVELSAN, TAI and TURK TELEKOM, or as researchers by various institutes of TUBITAK (Turkish Scientific and Technological Research Council), or as academicians by national and foreign universities.

D.14. Profile of the Programme

Back

All courses in the program are one-semester courses. Most of them are arranged in pairs comprising a theoretical course and a complementary laboratory. The theoretical courses and their associated laboratories must be taken together.

Some courses in the program have prerequisites. The courses that have prerequisites are stated in the Course Information Packages given under D.8.

The undergraduate program of the Department can be divided into two as courses internal and external to the Department. The external courses, all of which are compulsary are the following (courses in the first three entries are compulsory university-wide):

  • TKD 103 Turkish Language I, TKD 104 Turkish Language II,
  • AİT 203 History of Turkish Revolution and Atatürk's Principles I, AİT 204 History of Turkish Revolution and Atatürk's Principles II,
  • BEB 650 Usage of Basic Information and Communication Technologies
  • İNG 111 Language Skills I, İNG 112 Language Skills II,
  • MAT 123 Mathematics I, MAT 124 Mathematics II,
  • MAT 235 Engineering Mathematics I, MAT 236 Engineering Mathematics II,
  • FİZ 137 Physics I, FİZ 140 Physics II,
  • FİZ 103 Physics Laboratory I, FİZ 104 Physics Laboratory II,
  • KIM 127 Fundamentals of Chemistry,
  • ECO 141 Introduction to Economics,
  • MAN 252 Introduction to Management.

Most courses of the freshman year are compulsory courses external to the Department. Departmental courses of the first three years are all compulsory courses while those of the senior year are all electives with the exception of ELE 401 and ELE 402.

Courses of the first three years provide the student the necessary background about the general field of study while senior year courses aim to provide the student the knowledge, skill and competence in a relatively narrower area in which s/he may intend to specialize.

Students perform their summer training in the summers following their sophomore and junior years. At least 30 workdays of summer training must have been completed in order to graduate.

At least 152 national credits and 240 ECTS credits must be completed in order to graduate.

ECTS credits of elective courses add up to a minimum of 61; at least 4 in the sophomore year, at least 3 in the junior year and at least 54 in the senior year. Thus, a minimum of 61 ECTS credits out of 240, or 61/240 » 25% of the total ECTS credit count are elective courses.

National credits of elective courses add up to a minimum of 33; at least 3 in the sophomore year, at least 2 in the junior year and at least 28 in the senior year. Thus, a minimum of 33 national credits out of 152, or 33/152 » 22% of the total national credit count are elective courses.

Two "non-technical elective course"s are taken during the third term (4 ECTS) and during the fifth term (3 ECTS). The percentage of the non-technical elective courses in all elective courses is 7/61=11%.

D.15. Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading
