1. INTRODUCTION
1.1. EUROPEAN CREDIT TRANSFER SYSTEM
          ECTS, the European Credit Transfer System, was developed by the Commission of the European Communities
in order to provide common procedures to guarantee academic recognition of studies abroad. It provides the means of
measuring and comparing learning achievements, and transferring them from one institution to another. The ECTS
system is based on the principle of mutual trust and confidence between the participating higher education institutions.
The few rules of ECTS, concerning information (on courses available), agreement (between the home and host
institutions) and the use of credit points (to indicate student workload) are set out to reinforce this mutual trust and
confidence. Each ECTS department describes the courses it offers not only in terms of content but also in terms of the
credits allocated for each course. The present information package is intended to provide information on Bachelor of
Science Degree at the Horticulture Department, Mustafa Kemal University.

1.2. AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERING PROGRAM
        The faculty of Agriculture was founded in 1992. Agricultural Faculty consist of three programs; Foods Science
Engineering, Landscape Architecture and Agricultural Engineering. The program of Agricultural Engineering admitted
the first students in 2002/2003 academic year. The objectives of the program are to offer scientific, technical and social
knowledge and practical experiences as well as to educate individuals who are qualified to bring contemporary
solutions to problems in the area of agriculture worldwide.
           At the end of the 4 year program, graduates are to be well informed and skillful on the fruits and vegetables,
ornamentals, greenhouse maintenance, industrial, medicinal, and cereal crops, certified seed production, livestock
production and nutrition (bee keeping, silkworm, poultry, ruminants), agricultural machinery and system engineering,
control of plant disease and pests, soil tillage, fertilizers and fertilization, plant nutrition, agricultural structure, drainage
and irrigation, agricultural economy and marketing. Graduates are to be able serve for the private and non-private
institutions about the above mentioned subjects with the title, rights and privileges of agricultural engineer.
           Based on student preferences, the education in Agricultural Engineering Program branches into five
departments during senior year: Horticultural Science, Plant Protection, Crop Science, Soil Science, and Animal
Science Departments.

1.2.1. DEPARTMENTS

1.2.1.5. Animal Science

Department of Animal Science has chairs in Animal Husbandry and Breeding, Animal Feeds & Nutrition and Biometry
& Genetics. These chairs are responsible for teaching and research in defined areas of animal production concentrating
on breeding, nutrition, physiology and health as well as management of the major species of domestic animals (cattle,
poultry, sheep, goat, and bee). The department accepts 20 new undergraduate students annually, and 5–10 students
complete the master’s degree and 1-2 postgraduate degrees annually. Recently, our Department has made contribution
to involve in European Credit Transfer System.

Animal Science Department Strategies are:
            to provide general and specific knowledge regarding animal production
                  to provide to students laboratory (in vivo and in vitro) experience in the selected courses
                  to provide the field trips, applied courses in animal science, seminars and summer training
                  to encourage the students to have experience in farms, feed mills and feed laboratories
                  to support students using computers, library and doing research
                  to encourage to take the LES (Graduate Education Test)

General Description of Animal Science Department
          The Department was founded in 1992 as a science branch of Faculty of Agriculture. The department admitted
the first student in 1993/1994 academic year. In the Department, there are 2 laboratories for research and teaching.
There is not specific library in the department. Researcher and students use the University’s main library equipped with
computers for accessing information. Department has a quite big farm having 1500 da farmland in which two poultry
houses, one stall for cattle and one stall for small ruminants, equipped with milking machine. The normal period of
completion of undergraduate studies is four academic years. Undergraduate program in Animal Science Department
requires accomplishment of 150 credits of courses.

2. COURSE EVALUATION
          The success of students are grading by percent system. Although evaluation process varies from course to
course, it usually consists of homework, quizzes, midterm(s), final, projects, laboratory reports, oral presentations. The
teaching methods are announced by the instructors at the beginning of the semester. When considered appropriate by
the instructor, laboratory and/or other project can count for midterm(s). Each student is to have an final exam.
          Attendance requirement is 70% for the course, 80% for the applications. Students who fail to compile these
requirements can not take the final exam. At least one midterm is required. The 40% of the midterm(s)’ and 60% of
the final is calculated for the final grade. To succeed in a course these numbers must add up to 60. The students who
have failure grade (less than 60/100) are to take a second exam. If they fail on the 60/100 final grade after the second
exam, they repeat the course.
