The department trains the students to be able to make the necessary applications and having technical knowledge about the aquaculture and fishing issues in order to find solutions to the problems of our country's fisheries in modern and scientific meaning and makes the necessary applications to students.
Department of Fisheries Engineering which was established in 1994 began to accept students in the 2012-2013 academic year. Students of the department are trained in the use of technology and to gain experience about the relevant field in the light of the theoretical and practical courses that taken in first, second , third and fourth years of the education of Basic Sciences Fisheries , Aquaculture , Fishing and Processing Technology programs. The department has been conducting many research projects associated with the foreign institutions and universities. The research projects are at the regional, national and international perspective. The department personnel attend various national or international meetings, seminars, symposia and congresses each year to solve problems or to share ideas and research results.
To train contemporary , modern , scientific, ethical, aware of recent innovations, leading to the production of knowledge and technology in aquaculture, researching in regional, national and international level and to and to provide information to relevant stakeholders.
Department of Fisheries Engineering trains recognized, nationally and internationally performing, continuous self-renewal students with a quality education, and provides effective communication and collaboration with stakeholders, establishing models with product information.
The aim of the department is to provide qualified and modern education to the students about aquaculture, fisheries and management of water resources on nature issues. The education contents aquaculture, fish biology, fisheries ecology, fish diseases, aquatic products, aquatic products processing and other topics related to water resources. The graduates that have this education will be able to understand the numeric arguments and make positive or negative critique to the readings about the aquaculture issues and use this information in the applications of aquaculture or water management. The priorities of the department are to train contemporary, modern, scientific, ethical, and aware of recent innovations, leading to the production of knowledge and technology in aquaculture, researching in regional, national and international level.
