Geotechnic

 

History
Geotechnic Programme of Dokuz Eylul University have trained qualified technicians, especially in the ground survey in the Aegean region of an earthquake, ground improvement and the purpose of conducting scientific resource activities within the Dokuz Eylul University. This department was founded in 2000 in Torbali Vocational School. The programme is founded as Jeotechnic Programme and got its current name in 2009. Approximately 30 students are admitted each year. Our programme covers formal education and the education language is Turkish. Many of academic and laboratory studies conducted in our department, especially rock mechanics, soil mechanics, soil improvement and concentrate on field tests. Geotechnical designs and practical education in the fields of natural materials based on experiments and field tests is to train technicians.
Profile of the Programme
Geotechnic Programme is objected to educate technicians who can serve in global scale in the light of universal values with the benefit of science, technology and personal developments, develop teaching materials with an accepted global proficiency, gain technical skills to technicians to identifiy and solve problems in geotechnic etudes, teach related laboratuary and in-situ test for the soil etudes reports, finally graduate dynamic technicians who have scienctific fundemental knowledge for geotechnical investigations and applications. Within this aim, the fundamental lectures are soil mechanic, structural mechanic, rock mechanic, Information of Topography and Geological Maps, Geology and Rock Information, drilling technique, hydrogeology. Within the scope of laboratuary based lectures, microstructural, physical and mechanical properties of rocks are teached in rock mechanic laboratuary, soil mechanic laboratuary, microscopy laboratuary and geology laboratuary. Programme is performing enhancements and self evaluations under the scope of Bologna procedures.
