  1. Grading Scheme and Grades:

For each course taken, a student is given one of the following grades by the course teacher. The letter grades, grade points and percentage equivalents are given below:

Course Grade

Grade Points






















49 and below

Other grades used are YT (Satisfactory), YZ (Unsatisfactory), MU (Exempt), TR (Transfer), DV (Attended), DZ (Unattended), which do not have quality point equivalents. They are not added to cumulative point average.

The grades (YT) and (YZ) are used to show Satisfactory and Unsatisfactory in the courses which are not added to the cumulative grade point average by the approval of Senate and related department’s decision. The grade YT is accorded to the students who are successful in these non-credit courses. YZ is accorded to the students who have failing grades. These YZ students have to repeat the course.

The grade MU (Exempt) is accorded to students who are successful in the exemption exam for the courses approved by the Senate of the school and so were regarded as exempt students. This also includes the students who are transferred from another university with the satisfactory grade for their transferred courses.

The grade TR (Transfer) is accorded to the transferred students who have obtained satisfactory grades from the courses in their former universities they have attended which are equivalent to the courses in the new program.

Transferred courses should be approved by the administrative council of the program of the university.

The grade DV (attended) is given at the end of the first semester of a year-long course.

The grade DZ (unattended) is accorded to the students who have not fulfilled the attendance requirements of the course. This grade is not included in the grade point average computing.

The grade (DZ) is equal to (FF) or (YZ). Passing grades are (YT), (CC) or above.

Overall Classification of the Qualification:

Grade Point Averages ( CGPA ) : An associate degree student is required to have a CGPA of at least 1.75 in order to be able to take next semester courses at the end of the second semester, whereas an undergraduate student is required to have a CGPA of at least 1.75 in order to be able to take next semester courses at the end of the fourth semester. If a course is taken in the summer school, then, the CGPA is calculated by taking into consideration of the grades of the summer school courses.


1) Conditions for Award of Bachelor's Diploma

a) Students must have a CGPA of not less than 2.00 and have successfully completed all the courses in the program in order to graduate. The students whose CGPA is between 3.00-3.49 are listed as Honour (Şeref) graduates and students whose CGPA is between 3.50-4.00 are listed High Honour (Yüksek Şeref) graduates. Honour and High Honour standings are awarded with certificates along with the diplomas.

2) Undergraduate curriculum

Materials Science and Engineering is an interdisciplinary field of science that studies ceramic, glass, cement, electronic materials, various composite materials and is strongly interrelated with the basic sciences of physics, chemistry and biology. Materials Science and Engineering interests chemical, mechanical, electronic, medical engineering titles. The courses offered in the Materials Science and Engineering program especially emphasize the microstructure-property-performance relationships as well as factors that affect the materials behaviour in service. Materials are critical to all fields of engineering and design is often constrained by their limited availability. Furthermore, innovations in ceramic materials may lead to new design criteria and result in emergence of new products.

Department of Materials Science and Engineering was established in Afyon Kocatepe University in 1993. Department is located at Ahmet Necdet Sezer Campus. Currently, 1 Professor, 4 Assistant Professors and 6 Research Assistants are working in the department.

The laboratories of the department are equipped with all the modern research equipment and facilities needed to do scientific research on both traditional and high technology ceramics. There is also a Technology Application and Research Centre (TUAM) in the campus available for the research activities of Materials Science and Engineering members. Laboratories offer comfortable working environment both for individuals and research teams. These research facilities provide opportunity for studying high temperature sintering, microstructure evaluation, thermal expansion behaviour, mechanical properties, rheological properties of suspensions, sample preparation and surface treatment both for students and professionals. Graduates of Materials Science and Engineering Department are prepared to be employed in the fields of ceramic, glass, cement, construction materials, tile and brick industries and high technology institutes.
