M. Direk, A.S. Erol

Selcuk University (TURKEY)
Agricultural sector that produced basic foods for continue of human life has started firstly with uncontrolled harvesting and production and has been continue with time after culturing of many agricultural materials. The farmers in agricultural sector were shepherd in the past and qualified and modern techniques in agriculture have increased the requirements of engineering services. This increment has forced the uses of both theoretical and practical activities in agriculture for best education. In the past, education activity was conducted by experienced farmers and after the some period, it was performed by agricultural schools. Although, the agricultural education has been made by agricultural universities in most countries of the world, this has been performed by agricultural faculties at various universities of Turkey.
In the last 10 years, the requirements of private sectors from agriculture engineers have completely changed and the number of the agriculture engineers who would like to work in government was limited. Therefore, serious changes were applied in agricultural education systems. As a result of changes, 3 different systems were tried in last 10 years, but due to the poor efficiency, almost similar to old system was reaccepted. All education systems were far from private sector requirements. There was a poor coordination between private and government agriculture engineers. Those engineers employed in government sector were far from the modern education methods. Agriculture engineers who worked for government after the graduation should have the capability of private sector discipline and working standard to give the best services. The education should contain the required improvements and some amendments containing the private sector needs.
The data in study were obtained from students of Sel├žuk University, agricultural faculty that is one of the 24 agricultural faculties of Turkey of by survey technique. The survey was performed differently for new students and last class students. The initial and final expectations of students were researched.
