General Information

Biosystems engineering is an engineering science, basically applied to the scientific principles of engineering and biology for the perception, replacement and control of system environments to complement the natural physiological, physical, chemical, biochemical response of vegetative and animal biological systems and to obtain and improve the useful end products of the systems. is science. It covers the complex relationships between plants and animals living in the biosystem, soil and atmosphere and their systems (structure, machinery, energy, water). Changing a parameter and / or element of relationships can have both desired and undesirable results. While minimizing the undesired result, increasing the desired is the main purpose of the biosystem engineer.

To research food, energy and water in accordance with science and technique within the principles of environmental awareness and sustainability; to protect and develop on a local, regional, national and global basis; to make use of beneficiaries and to protect them from possible damages.

In addition, the department is responsible for the production, use and processing of biological materials for food, feed, fiber and fuel supply, design and production of machine systems, protection and development of land and water resources, efficient use of energy and agricultural structures, while preserving natural resources and environmental quality. It aims to learn basic sciences and engineering principles to solve related problems.

Biosystems engineering program is briefly used in agricultural, biological, environmental, etc. aims to train qualified engineers who can work effectively with responsibility awareness in their fields.

The gains that our graduates will gain as a result of the courses they have taken are as follows.

• Has the necessary knowledge of mathematics, basic sciences and engineering about the systems used in agricultural production and the stages of obtaining other biological based products (compost, biogas, bio fertilizer, bioplastic, soilless agriculture, etc.).
• The main elements of Biosystems Engineering: He knows that there is a large system of living things (plants, animals, humans and microorganisms, etc.) and inanimate beings (soil, water, air, machinery, agricultural structures, etc.) and examines their relations with the environment.
• Has the ability to define, model, economical analysis and solve engineering problems related to biosystems and can do interdisciplinary studies.
• Basic working principles, designs, manufacturing and operation of power and construction equipment used in the process of obtaining biological products; basic elements of agricultural structures, their project design, construction and use; have the knowledge of engineering, materials, biology and agriculture that are necessary for the protection and development of land and water resources.
• Act in accordance with scientific, cultural and ethical values, supervise, supervise, teach and support these values.
• Develops strategy, policy and implementation plans by acting in accordance with the legislation and regulations and implements the results obtained within the framework of total quality management processes.
• Has the competence to question, think analytically, synthesize, and produce solutions to problems.
• Accesses up-to-date information using new information and communication technologies, conducts resource research, uses databases and other information resources, prepares projects and consults.
