Practical Training

About Practical Training

Electrical and Electronics Engineering students are required 40 days of practical training.  A student may do up to 30 days of training at a workplace.

The practical training could be on electronics, communication systems, control systems, power systems, computer hardware or software and other Electrical Engineering and electronics related fields including the design, maintenance and sales departments.

The practical training could be initiated after the second year of classes. 20 days of training is required for the double-major students.

Students who come from the two-year vocational schools are given credit for the practical training they have done prior to being admitted to the department. For this purpose, students who come from the two-year vocational schools should apply to the practical training committee with an application form and a document showing the practical training they have done in vocational schools.

Practical Training Application

Online Registration System

The students must first register Online Registration System before starting the practical training at a particular place. Students will be enrolled in this system first. After approval of the enrollment, if the institution/company is present in the Online Registration System, they will enter the information about the practical training. If the institution/company is not present, students will enter the information of the institution/company to be added to the list. After the relevant institution/company application is examined by the practical training committee, it will be decided whether it is suitable for practical training and it will be added to the list if it is appropriate. After the student receives the institution/company approval, he/she should sign in the Online Registration System again and enter the information about the practical training.

A document showing the obligatory practical training may be required by institutions/companies during the practical training application process. This document is also available on Online Registration System. It is stated that the university will pay the premiums for the "obligatory practical training" period in this document.

Insurance for Occupational Hazards During The Practical Training

The law number 5510 requires the trainees be insured for the occupational hazards during the practical training.  The law requires the University file the information with the SGK (Social Security Establishment) and pay the premiums for the "obligatory practical training" period. Students who have completed enrollment in the Online Registration System must apply for this insurance.  This process takes time; hence, students must file the paperwork with the Department office 7 days before the practical training starts.

1. Practical Training Application Form (2 copies)
2. Acceptance letter from the workplace

Although the university is responsible for paying for the insurance of the student at practical training, in case of any accidents at work, students and the company are obliged to inform the faculty. This information has to be declared to the faculty at the same day of the incident.

An approved copy of the insurance form is returned to the student.  Also, a bar-coded document will be supplied to the student 1-5 days prior to the training.  Some employers may not accept trainees without this bar-coded document.

The university does not arrange any insurance for the practical training outside of Turkey.

No insurance application will be made for practical trainings to be made in university campus.

The practical training book may be obtained from the photocopy centers in the Engineering buildings, and a photograph must be affiexed and approved by the department secretary before the training.
