Ondokuz Mayıs Üniversitesi Bilgi Paketi - Ders Kataloğu
Faculty of Engineering - Department of Geomatics Engineering

General Description

History

The department accepted its first students in 1997/98 academic year and graduated 385 students up to date. The department have 312 students at the present time.

Qualification Awarded

Bachelor's Degree in Geomatics Engineering.

Level of Qualification

First Cycle

Specific Admission Requirements

1- A high school (or equivalent) diploma 2- A sufficient score from the relevant exam administered by ÖSYM (ÖSS for Turkish citizens, YÖS for international applicants)

Specific Arrangements For Recognition Of Prior Learning (Formal, Non-Formal and Informal)

In Turkish Higher Education Institutions, including most departments of Ondokuz Mayis University, the process for recognition of prior training is still at its beginning stage. However, at the beginning of every semester, two exemption exams are administered, one for English language, one for computer skills.

Qualification Requirements and Regulations

Students who successfully complete their 4 academic year (8 semesters) long academic program and also the vocational internship earn their Bachelor of Science degree. Students who have completed at least the first two year portion of their academic program, and who do not want to continue with their studies, can, at their request, get an Associate degree.

Profile of The Programme

The Geomatics Engineering has great importance in Public Works projects, especially rural and urban planning projects. Geographic Information Systems, Global Positioning Systems, Remote Sensing have become recently as some of the important subjects in Geomatics Engineering. The Department has had always aimed to educate their students into professionals that can use the modern equipments and have expertise in subjects demanded by public and private sector like surveying, positioning, establishing and using information networks, stakeout surveying, real estate ownerships and relevant legal and technical framework. Our curriculum is devised and regularly updated to achieve this purpose.

Occupational Profiles of Graduates With Examples

Geomatics/Geodesy Engineers work in public and private institutions that create or make use of maps and map information. In private sector, they usually work in private Geodesy Engineer offices. In public sector, they usually work in several institutions under Ministry of Public Department and Settlement, like the General Directorate of Land Registry and Cadastral, Bank of Provinces, General directorate of highways, General Directorate of Disaster Affairs; in General Command of Mapping, Turkish State Railways, Housing Development Administration of Turkey, General Directorate for State Hydraulic Works, Turkish Electricity Authority, General Directorate of Mineral Research & Exploration, Turkish Petroleum Corporation, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, General Directorate of Agricultural Reform, Genoral Directorate of Forestry, and Municipalities around Turkey.

Access to Further Studies

Students with a BS degree who have passed the ALES exam with a sufficient score and who have the required level English language skills can apply and join the department as graduate students.

Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading

For each class, students take a final exam, a midterm exam and complete a 'semester work' which can be a project, seminar, a short exam, homework assignments, or a second midterm. 60% of the final exam score (out of 100), 40% of the midterm score and semester work (out of 100) are added to get the final grade. The final exam score of the student has to be at least 50 to not fail. The final grades are converted to final letter grades. The final grades must be least 60 to not fail. At the end of each semester, students can take make-up examination to pass the courses they have failed.

Graduation Requirements

Students who successfully complete the program (240 credits) with a cumulative GPA of at least 2.00 out of 4.00, who also successfully complete the senior project and the vocational internship, are awarded a Bachelor's Degree in Geomatics Engineering.
