Laboratory Technology


It is a fully applied intermediate training (training) training field related to the breeding-production issues in all areas of agricultural production activities and the problems encountered during processing, storage and transportation. More specifically, it has reached the ability to carry out the analysis of soil which is an environment where agricultural activity takes place, the characteristics of irrigation water and the analysis of these waters, especially the detection of all illnesses and harms encountered during production, the taking of plant samples and preservation in laboratory environment, analysis preparation and analysis Element (technician) training is the main objective of the program. In addition, analysis of drinking water, microbiological analysis techniques in biomass and health related areas and biochemical laboratory techniques are included in the course plan. In the meantime, it is aimed to develop the skills of students to use these laboratory equipments comfortably.

According to the main competition of the global market economy, based on the fact that Turkey wanted to market without encountering any marketing risk in agricultural production products that perform as having the first less than 10 to enter the vision of the near future world agricultural production for the world market, this program-obvious profession will become more important nowadays. In this sense, it is clear that not only the public sector but also the private sector enterprises should establish similar laboratories by investing in this field and having an appropriate market size, so that a product with the quality and related regulations will be required to have similar qualifications in each food operation. It is also aimed to teach the agricultural laboratory techniques and to introduce the tools and devices to be used in the analyzes and to gain the working skills in the laboratory. These elements also include; It is also aimed to train intermediate personnel who will be able to perform practical analysis and evaluate the analyzes made, which can determine methods related to soil, water, plant, food, feed analysis and plant protection techniques.
