Foundation  
Department of Electrical end Electronics Engineering was established in 1969. In the begining the name of the departmant was Electrical Engineering under Machanichal and Electical Faculty. The name of the department has been changed to Electrical and Electronics Engineering as one of the departments in Faculty of Engineering and Architechture, in 1982. The Faculty of Engineering and Architechture has been separated into two new faculties as Engineering Faculty and Architecture in 2005, and the mission of the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering continues under Engineering Faculty since then.
Qualification Awarded  
The students who have graduated from the Department of Electrical end Electronics Engineering is awarded with a Bachelor's degree in the field of Electrical end Electronics Engineering.
Level of Qualification:  First Cycle Degree  
Mode of Study:  Full Time
Admission & Registration Requirements  
1 - High school diploma,
2 - Obtaining the required grade from National University Entrance and Placement Exam (LGS),
3 - Placement certificate issued by the Student Selection and Placement Centre (LYS),

Karadeniz Technical University and hence the Department of Electrical end Electronics Engineering is no exception to this. However, exams of exemption are organised at the start of each term at the University for courses compulsory in the curriculum, such as Foreign Languages and Basic Computing. The students who have completed the learning process for these courses on his/her own or through other means, and believe that they have achieved the learning outcomes specified are given the right to take the exemption exam. The students who achieve a passing grade from these exams are held exempt from the related course in the curriculum, and this grade is entered into the transcript of the student.

Profile of the Programme  
Students who admitted to the department go to English Language School first, for Language preperation for one year, then start their education in the department. The program includes basic science and core electrical engineering courses. At the benning of the Third year, the program is divided into two parts as (1) Electrical and Control Area, (2) Electronics and Communications Area. The students select one of the areas and continue their education. Although, the most of the courses in Third year are common for both areas, they are different in Fourth year. Starting at the end of the Second year, students must complete a 60 work day practical work in industry and submit a report.

Examination, Assessment and Grading Regulations  
The examination, assessment and grading regulations have been set up for the university by the University Senate and the Department of Electrical end Electronics Engineering is bound by these regulations. Each course is assessed via a midterm exam 50%) and a final end-of-term exam (50%). The AA is the highest grade and has a grade credit of 4.00, BA 3.5, BB 3.0, CB 2.5, CC 2.0, DC 1.5, DD 1.0, FD 0.5 and FF 0.0. Grades of AA to CC are pass, DD to FF fail, and DC is conditional pass and requires a CGPA of at least 2.0 for that term.
Graduation Requirements  
The graduation requirements for the Department of Electrical end Electronics Engineering are the same as the qualification requirements and regulations. There is no additional requirement to secure the Bachelor's Degree provided that the students have passed all the courses in the curriculum with at least a DC grade, had a cumulative gross point average of at least 2.00 out of 4.00, and completed the compulsory practical work period of 60 days and had a passing grade for the reports prepared for these works.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates  
The graduates of the department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering establish their own bussiness as professinal engineers, or they work for the companies doing bussinness in the areas of communication services and installations such as TURK TELEKOM, TURKCELL, VODAFON and AVEA; and also for the companies doing bussinness in the areas of power transmission, distribution, installation, as well as industrial automation. Some of the graduates of the department are interested in research and academic carear and proceed towards their MScE and Phd degrees either in Turkey or abroad.
Access to Further Studies  
The students who have successfully graduated from the department may apply to post graduate programmes in the field of Electrical and Electronics Engineering either in Turkish universities or universities abroad. Currently there are many graduates who are active faculty members in other universities in Turkey or abroad.
