COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING
BASIC INTERNSHIP PRINCIPLES
The objective of these principles’ are to determine the framework of internship (practical training) rules for the students in departments of Mechanical Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Civil Engineering and Industry Engineering in the College of Engineering. Specific internship subjects and the rules for the departments for each department are given in the section of departmental internship principles.
In order to fortify theoretical knowledge with practical exercises, the students have to complete their internship requirements in real business places determined by the internship committee according to departmental internship principles.
All internship activities in the college are planned, applied and supervised by the internship committee.
The business places that accept students for internship position are to be responsible for the safety and productivity of the students, and these students have to follow all rules and regulations of the business places.
Practical trainings have to be completed during out of academic terms. The students who don’t have to attend to the courses may complete the internship requirement with the consent of departmental internship committee
INTERNSHIP PLACES AND APPLICATION
Neither the college of engineering nor the departments is responsible for finding internship places for students. Internship quotas of official and private businesses are posted each year by the related department. In case of insufficient internship position in the college, the students may complete their internship in other business places that are approved by the internship committees. Also, internship may be completed abroad with the guidance of an official or private institution.
Students who are going to take internship programs have to apply to the committee with a petition indicating the internship place. If the suitability of that place for an internship is unknown, the student has to apply to that place with a petition asking the possibility of an internship. When the appropriateness is confirmed, then the student must submit the related documents to the internship committee. Mailed documents on this subject will not be considered.
The students whose internship place is approved is given an ‘internship notebook’ by the students affairs office of the College of Engineering.
PREPARATION, SUBMISSION AND EVALUATION OF THE INTERNSHIP DOCUMENTS
The students who follow the internship are to fill the internship notebook in the term of practical training. In case of insufficiency of the notebook, additional pages or folders may be added or another internship notebook may be used. All the documents related with internship are to be approved by the officials of the practical training center.
The students are expected to interpret and evaluate their theoretical knowledge and practical experiences in the notebook.
The students are expected to write their works and experiences in the notebook and the related documents such as xerox, drawings, photographs, printouts or diskettes may also be attached to the notebook
Writings and drawings should follow the technical rules during the filling of the notebook.
The internship notebook should be filled completely. In case of the level of duration is less than 24 business days, one page is set aside for each day. At the end of the internship term, first and second pages of the notebook must be filled and approved.
The internship students may be controlled in the business place by the members of the internship committee or an academician who is authorized by the chair of the department.
At the end of the practical training term, internship evaluation document is confidentially filled and signed. The name (Chamber ID, If there is) title and the position of the authorized person (who signed the document) have to be written on the document, and the document must be in an envelope and sent to the student affairs office of the college. The document, which is unsigned or has no envelope, will be considered invalid. Internship evaluation document have to reach the office before the evaluation of internship notebooks. Otherwise practical training would be invalid and the student is to be responsible for the inconveniences.
Internship notebooks must be returned to the student affairs office at the end of second week, of following semester and a receipt must be signed by the delivery person. If this due date is not observed the internship may not be valid.
Student affairs office must delivery all of the internship documents as well as the notebooks to the internship committee in ten days, and the documents are evaluated by the committee in one month and the results are posted.
The students who had foreign internship study must submit the same documents (including notebook) and an official documents indicating the subject and duration of internship studies must be returned to the internship committee.
Internship committee may accept or reject a part or all of the internship study according to the information in the notebook or related documents.
In case of having an unsuccessful grade (E) in the internship document, the practical training is cancelled. Also 6 business days for each (D) and 4 business days for each (C) grades are cancelled in the total internship period.
Partially or totally rejected internship studies must be repeated with a new notebook again in an approved business place by the internship committee.
The students who have unsuccessful or incomplete internship studies cannot be graduated
SOME OTHER SUBJECTS
If the students who are transferred from another university and completed their internship program, their status will be reevaluated by the internship committee
The other subjects or topics which are not in this document or mandatory changes in the rules are to be ratified by the board of college with the departmental proposal.
T.C. Erciyes University College of Engineering Basic Internship Principles’ take effect when ratified by the board of college committee.
INTERNSHIP PRINCIPLES OF TEXTILE ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT
Internship program for textile engineering department has been arranged at three stages, which is given below:
- General Internship
- Manufacturing Internship
- Product Development, Planning and Quality Control Internship
The purpose of the general internship is to give students fundamental issues of textile engineering as well as the transfer of theoretical knowledge into application.
The purpose of manufacturing internship is to give students information about production chain from product order to shipping included all details of the function of each process and adjustments for each processes. Product-process relations and fundamental production calculations will improve the theoretical background of students.
The purpose of product development, planning and quality control internship is to give students: analysis of product order, product planning, product-cost analysis, product design and its application to process based on application areas, on-line and off-line product quality control, database for products, evaluating and commenting on a product in order to generate knowledge to practice them in the future.
1. General Internship
Every textile engineering freshmen, who passed all courses, should do this internship. The duration of the internship is 25 working days (five weeks). The student will learn the basic functions of processes and basic textile issues at the university pilot plant or a factory. The allotted time periods for the first year general internship is given in Table 1.
Table 1. Schedule of internship for each textile unit.
Units Integrated Textile Factory
Duration (Working Days)
Yarn (natural, synthetic and blends)
Nonwoven or Carpet Manufacturing*
Dyeing and Printing
*Students might prefer to do nonwoven or carpet manufacturing internship instead of weaving and knitting one.
2. Manufacturing Internship
Every textile engineering sophomore, who passed all courses, should do this internship. The duration of the internship is 30 working days (six weeks). The student will learn the information about production chain from product order to shipping included all details of the function of each process and adjustments for each processes. The allotted time periods for the second year manufacturing internship is given in Table 2.
Table 1. Schedule of internship for each textile unit.
Units of Integrated Textile Factory
