Student-lecturer-University cooperation and communication is very important for us. For this purpose, student representatives for each class are selected by the students again. The Department of Science Teaching also offers a double major program. However, our three students who are successful, eager to work and have high communication skills are selected as a part-time working staff for the department. There are three labs in which courses are conducted namely; physics, chemistry and biology. The Department has student exchange programs for both undergraduate and graduate students within the ERASMUS scheme.
