General Description

History

Ondokuz Mayis University, Agricultural Faculty, Department of Animal Science was founded in 1982. Students who enroll to animal science department take basic courses in first two terms. In the terms of 3-6, they take some courses from different departments of Agricultural Faculty, and some basic courses from Animal Science Department. They take advanced courses from Animal Science Department in the terms of 7 and 8. Finally, they graduate after 4 years of education. There is post-graduate education in the programs of Institute of Natural and Applied Sciences, besides undergraduate education. There are three sub departments in Animal Science Department. The education is carried out in the sub departments of Animal Breeding, Animal Nutrition and Biometry and Genetics. Education and research facilities are carried out by the poultry species of chicken, turkey, quail, partridge etc., cattle, sheep, goat and honey bee. There are laboratories and research units for carrying out the studies about animal breeding and nutrition. The students of Animal Science department have applied education in the laboratories of Reproductive Biology, Nutrition and Feed, Microbiology and Breeding. The experiments about dairy cattle, sheep, goat, honey bee and different poultry species are carrying out in the Department.

Also, they can benefit from all the rights provided by law who graduated with the title of Agricultural Engineer.

Access to Further Studies

Students, who have completed a Department of Animal Science program, can continue to the Animal Science Master Program and other masters programs. Possible participation postgraduate studies at the Faculties of Veterinary Medicine.

Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading

The students are assessed at Midterm and at the end of the term. The success of the course is determined by the course grade. Course grade is determined by using midterm exams, practical works, homeworks and final examination. Course grade is calculated by summing the 40% of the midterm exam (or homeworks etc.) and 60% of the final exam. Fractions in the calculation of these ratios will be retained, but the pass mark under fractional numbers is rounded to the nearest whole.A 100-based system is used in evaluation of course success. Note conversion table of Higher Education Council is used in calculation of the equivalents of points in the 4-based system. Final examination note and success score should be 50 and 60, respectively in order to be successful in any course.

Graduation Requirements

Students who take minimum 60 points of 240 AKTS credit hours in 100 point grading system and their internship, will be eligible to receive a Bachelor's degree with Agricultural Engineer Title from Department of Animal Science.
