Abstract


Studying The Expectations of Agricultural Faculty Students from Their Profession: The Case of Gaziosmanpaşa University
263 students, 30 % of the total students at Gaziosmanpaşa University Agricultural Faculty selected using purposive sampling method, were administered a questionnaire and their expectations from agricultural engineering were studied. The data were analyzed using SPSS 16 statistics software and frequency and cross tables were created. In addition, the Chi-Square analysis was applied to the data and correlation coefficients were determined. The students were generally worried about employment in agricultural engineering. They were of the opinion that the increasing number of agricultural faculties and surplus graduates would lead to employment problem in this field in the future. The low level wages paid to agricultural engineers was seen as another problem by the students. Apart from these, the profession is losing reputation and public employment of agricultural engineers is decreasing. This was thought to lead to the lack of motivation in students. Besides, the students were pessimistic about the future of agricultural engineering and the department they were studying. This will cause lack of self-confidence in students along their academic lives. Students attend their school worrying that they will be unemployed for a long time after they have graduated. This will also lead to failure and serious personal problems in students. 51.0 % of the students thought they could go to another country to work. 27.3 % thought they had to find a job in another sector since they were desperate about the future of their job. Though 89.4 % were hopeless about the future of their profession, they recommended agricultural engineering to the candidates of this field. The study also developed recommendations and strategies to address the aforementioned issues. It also studied some details about the future of agricultural engineering.
