General Information

Vocational School of Technical Sciences was established in 2009 in Adana Hacı Sabancı Organized Industrial Zone (AOSB). It is one of the largest organized industrial zones on the Adana-Ceyhan D-400 Turkey and has an area of 1225 hectares north of Yakapınar (Misis). Machinery Program within the Department of Machinery and Metal Technologies started its Mechanical Technician Education in the 2010-2011 academic year. The aim of the program is to train human resources that are needed for the industry, apply occupational health and safety instructions, and are sensitive to professional ethics and environmental rules, with the trainings they receive in the fields of materials science, manufacturing methods, computer-aided design, measurement and control. The name of "Çukurova University Technical Sciences Vocational School" has been changed to "Çukurova University Adana Organized Industrial Zone Technical Sciences Vocational School" as of 26.02.2018 with the letter of the Council of Higher Education Board (YÖK) dated 26.02.2018 and numbered 15619. The Law No. 7033 on the Amendment of Certain Laws and Decrees for the Development of Industry and Support of Production came into force in July 2017. The law states that “Educational support can be provided to relevant higher education institutions from the appropriation allocated to the Higher Education Council's budget for this purpose for each student studying at vocational schools established in organized industrial zones”. Within the framework of this provision, starting from the 2017 - 2018 Academic Year Spring Semester, the students of the Machinery, Electricity, Textile Technology and Electronic Technology Programs in our School have started to receive educational support. In the Machinery Program, 3+1 Workplace Training (practical training in the industry organizations) has been started since 2018-2019 Spring semester. Machinery Program of Machinery and Metal Technologies Department continues formal education.
