184 MECHATRONICS ENGINEERING

GENERAL INFORMATION
Mechatronics Engineering Department is a new department founded in the Technology Faculty of Pamukkale University in 2011. Education has been started by taking students to normal and evening programs in 2012-2013 academic year. Education language of our department is Turkish. The students who admitted to the programs of our department by classification of the MF-4 scores are accepted to programs from Vocational and Technical Secondary Education (VTSE) and regular High Schools. The students who admitted to normal and evening programs of our department in the Vocational and Technical Secondary Education (VTSE) are taken to the Scientific Preparation Program which is prerequisite of our department. The lack of our students in the field of Mathematics and Natural and Applied Science are eliminated with the aid of this program. As a result of this, they will be prepared for engineering education. Our students will take courses with 240 credits (AKTS) and they also will do compulsory practical training during the license education. Besides, our students will receive compulsory workplace training during a semester on the 4th class. This workplace training will provide our students to recognize the sector they can work, and what they are supposed to do in that sector and working environment, before graduation. By means of this training, students will gain experience in professional aspects before the graduate. Information related to the undergraduate program and other information can be found on the web link http://www.pau.edu.tr/mekatronikmuhendisligi/default.aspx.

Objective
We aim as Mechatronics Engineering Department is to educate engineers who have the ability to satisfy the needs of industry that they use time, equity and labor economically, and they can technological design by using today’s technology and engineering productivity efficiently, keeping environmental facts in mind.


Admission Requirements
Students need to have a high school diploma and a necessary score from type MF-4 of LYS examination (Undergraduate Placement Examination) organized by ÖSYM.

Graduation Requirements

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
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
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
InterviewThis is when the teacher brings in (writers, artists, designers, writers, illustrators, etc.) because he/she is not equipped with the adequate facilities to do with certain issues or situations. It is a technique that triggers the senses of students. In some cases, students interview certain people
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
