Our undergraduate program has been designed as seven semesters (3.5 years) of university education and one semester workplace experience. During their undergraduate studies, students spend the entire semester outside the university in public and private institutions in the construction sector with the "Workplace Experience" course they will take in the spring semester of the fourth grade. This approach increases the opportunities to take part in potential job fields before graduation and continue their careers in companies or other organizations where they gained workplace experience after graduation.
Our 4th grade students, who will graduate from our department this year, presented their experiences, which they gained outside the university for a semester within the scope of CE 404 - Workplace Experience course. Young civil engineer candidates answered the questions of the instructors after their presentations.
