This is a first cycle degree program in engineering, Civil Engineering (240 ECTS).

On successful completion of the Civil Engineering programme and gain competencies, a student will be awarded the Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering.

Civil Engineering programme prepares the students for working in the construction industry as well as many other sectors including management, energy and water, and other multi-disciplinary engineering sectors. Due to different  branches and application areas of civil engineering, the graduates have a wide range of job opportunities. From desinging of superstructures, infrastructures, bridges and highways as a structural engineer to supervising the execution of projects as a site engineer, graduates can also work as consulting engineers, contractors and geotechnical engineers.

 

Civil engineering graduates can also find jobs in the public sector with local authorities and government departments where they get involved in setting project specifications, preparing tender documents and controlling the execution of projects. Furthermore, civil engineers can be employed in research organizations and academia if they go on to further study.

The following program educational objectives are career and professional accomplishments that our graduates are expected to achieve after graduation:
Our graduates will,

 

1. Apply their engineering knowledge in identifying and solving problems and use their critical judgment skills in order to succeed in their engineering career and/or in advanced academic career.

 

2. Demonstrate professional and personal leadership and/or a competitive action within multidisciplinary and international environments.

 

3. Apply the basic principles and practices of engineering in the design and implementation of engineering systems.

 

4. Remain informed and involved in the evolving technical challenges by engaging in self development activities.

Faculty of Engineering appreciates modern concepts and new methods in engineering education and teaching methods that support educational objectives in addition to traditional methods. Traditional class attendance is compulsory for all courses except graduation projects in the faculty of Engineering. A variety of other educational methods are also used depending on the course and instructor. All kinds of practical exercises including the IT based activities are used to support the understanding of theory and to improve practical skills. Using different educational methods is also aiming to increase the interest of students. Traditional class work is an essential way in order to give basic theory (knowledge) on each topic. Therefore at least 75% of class attendance is expected for all of the courses.

 

Problem solving sections of knowledge based courses are integrated with the theory sections. There are several ways to conduct laboratory practice. Students conduct experiments in a laboratory under the supervision of either the teaching assistants or instructors. Practice on computers, which mainly used for programming courses that results of the written code observed on the screen. Computer simulations are also used extensively in order to enlarge the span of experiments. The simulations are extensively used in order to test designs of students before physical realizations. In the third and fourth year courses there are computer integrated experiments, where students code their designs, and observe the results on a physical appliance. 

 

Course Projects, which are attached to the last year courses, are very useful to encourage students to use techniques and tools that they learned for solving a specific problem. Students are expected to prepare a report and/or present their projects in front of an audience at the end of the semester. Reading a new article, which is related to the course topic, and presenting its foundations is another method for engaging students’ interest in contemporary issues. 

 

Distance learning system, which is a web based platform (Moodle-Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment-, elearning.gau.edu.tr), is used as course support system since 2007. This system offers many different opportunities in education. Announcing course events and sharing electronic materials are typical usage of the system. This system is a platform that students may be more active than traditional class work and it is an additional option for students to discuss course specific issues with their instructors and colleagues.

 

Some typical features of Moodle are

-Assignment submission
-Discussion forum
-Files download
-Grading
-Moodle instant messages
-Online calendar
-Online news and announcement (College and course level)
-Online quiz
-Wiki

 

This system provides transparency and equality for all students and also reduces paper waste. This system is able to direct all messages to the registered e-mail addresses of all members (Students and instructors) of the course similarly to many social networking services. Therefore it is a contemporary way of continuing education out of the classroom by communicating with students and/or planning a variety of web based activities. Usage of distance learning system within the Faculty of engineering varies depending on the course and instructor. Gradually usage of the system increases since all instructors are encouraged to use the distance learning system as effectively as possible.

An undergraduate student is entitled to graduate if s/he satisfactorily completes all required courses, laboratory studies, reports and practical assignments, attains a sum of credit-hours amounting to at least the minimum required for graduation, has a CGPA of 2.00 or above and is financially of good standing.

 

Graduation is conferred by the University Senate upon the recommendation of the Faculties.

 

The Diplomas are prepared by the Registrar`s Office, and indicate the name of the Program, the date of graduation, and the degree obtained.
