251 TEXTILE ENGINEERING

GENERAL INFORMATION
Textile engineering program started in 1995. Currently, the program is totally eight semesters. Before starting the program students may follow two semesters of optional English language program. The program is built up under two departments: Textile Science containing textile materials, textile physics, dyeing and finishing in textile; and Textile Technology containing yarn processing, fabric processing, ready made clothing, quality control, and textile machinery.

Objective
The main aim of Textile Engineering program is to provide professional and technical knowledge about universal content of textile engineering which are textile courses; mathematics, science, fundamental engineering and elective social courses beside comprehensive textile courses. Our graduates are expected to have ability to understand, define and solve textile related technical problems using modern engineering tools and techniques. Education and training programs of the department are arranged to improve communication and team working ability of graduates from the view point of social and occupational ethic rules.


Admission Requirements
In order for students to enroll our program they need to have a high school diploma and a necessary score from a centralized national university placement examination.

Graduation Requirements
Students are required to complete all compulsory and elective courses in the curriculum successfully with no failing grades, including compulsory practical trainings, and have a minimum CGPA requirement as stated in Pamukkale University’s undergraduate program guidance. Students enrolled on 2010 and on following years have to complete courses on their catalogues and have 30% of courses in English Students enrolled on 2013 and on following years have to complete courses on their catalogues and reach a total of 240 ECTS and have at leaset 72 ECTS of courses in English

Career Opportunties
Program graduates can be employed in ctextile companies and organizations in the field of textile production, planning and marketing departments. And also there are some openings in the public institutions.

TEACHING & LEARNING METHODS
NameComments
LecturingLecturing is one of the methods that come first, where the teacher is in the center. It is a method where the teacher actively describes topics and the students are passive listeners. With this method, lesson proceeds in the form of report, description and explanation.
DebateDepending on the situation, debate is a tool that allows all students, or a specific portion of the class to participate in the lesson. In this method, members of the group discuss a topic by addressing the various points of view and discuss alternative opinions about problem-solving.
DemonstrationIn this method the teacher demonstrates, an experiment, test, in front of the class. And then assists students to do so too. Students learn not only by just by looking and watching, but also by taking part and participating. This method is usually applied when teaching skills.
Problem SolvingThe name given to any doubt or ambiguity that arises is, a problem. Problems which usually have a role in human life, that have preventing or annoying aspects are solved by considering the stages of scientific methods. (a) Problems are determined. (b) The problem is identified. 
Cooperative LearningCooperative Learning is; a kind of learning that is based on the students working together for a common purpose. Children with different skills come together in heterogeneous groups to learn by helping each other. Students gain experiences such as becoming aware of the unity
PerformanceIn this method, the teacher performs activities such as experiments and demonstrations in front of the class, students try to learn by looking and watching. This method is usually applied where there are limited facilities and in dealing with dangerous experimental situations.
Questions –AnswersThe different types of Questions used (associative, differential, assessment, requesting information, motivating, and brainstorming) although students get in to more active positions during the process; the method is teacher-centered. If possible Questions, that serve a purpose and
Concept MapsExpress a relation network, based on figures, graphics and words propositions and principles. It enables visual learning. These steps are followed: 1) Concepts about the subjects to be taught are listed. 2) The name of the subject that will be taught is written at the top.3) Relations between

Children with different skills come together in heterogeneous groups and learn by helping each other. Students gain experiences such as becoming aware of the unity within the
Simulation Expresses situations where in real life learning is dangerous, difficult to reach and expensive and where students work on models which are very similar to the real thing. For example, before airplane pilots and astronauts embark their aircrafts and spacecrafts, they perform applications
ProjectProject-based learning is a learning way which leads students to deal with interesting problems and to create extraordinary products at the end of this. It allows students to use their creativity and it requires them to look at events perceptively.
Technical TourIs a method that takes learning to the out of the classroom. It is a method that provides students to make direct observations and to gain information by taking them to places, such as factories, museums, libraries, various government agencies, mountains, forests, lakes, parks and gardens.
Testing Means reaching results by using various information with certain mechanisms, which are set up to imitate natural events in artificial environments and to have students take a certain topics and applying them to reach certain aims/objectives. Nature researchers, scientists, and educators
Vision Development This technique is not all the students in small groups, but all students participating in a study as a class. It is a discussion technique, used to teach students to respect others views and improve their vision, when thinking about conflicting points of view. Topics with apparent contradictions 
Brainstorming Brainstorming is a group work process that has been regulated to reach solutions for a problem without limitations or evaluation. The purpose of brainstorming is to make it easier for students to express themselves and to generate ideas. This technique is used as a high-level discussion
