Abstract

 

The purpose of this study is to determine the satisfaction levels of the students studying at technical education faculties to become Machine Drawing and Construction teachers. The study has been devised as a survey and its scope consists of candidate teachers attending the machine drawing and construction education program of the technical education faculty of seven universities in Turkey. Sampling has been done among randomly chosen 319 students studying in the machine drawing and construction program at the Faculty of Technical Education (FTE). The findings obtained in the study have revealed that the satisfaction levels of the students regarding the administration of their faculties, social activities in their faculties, educational activities and applied studies are at a medium level. Moreover, it has been found out that although the opinions concerning the school and the reason for choosing the department show significant discrepancies at certain levels, no such discrepancies have been revealed according to the high schools that the students have graduated from. In the study, following the evaluation of the tables drawn as a result of the analysis, some implications and suggestions have been offered.
