Both Engineer And Engineer And Teacher And Mother

Hilal Arıkan (2), a mother of 34 children who worked in a light rail system in Samsun (tram driver-vatman), started working as a machinist in 2007 after graduating from the building design teaching department in 2008. During this time, he took the exam and won the civil engineering department. Arıkan, who worked on the one hand and went to school on the other hand, graduated this year. Arıkan, who is a mechanic, teacher, civil engineer and mother of two children, was appreciated with his determination to work and reading effort.

10 male and 2010 female machinists work in the Light Rail System, which was built by Samsun Metropolitan Municipality and opened on October 47, 36. The light rail system, operated by Samulaş (Samsun Project Transportation Reconstruction Construction Investment Industry and Trade Inc.), has 30 tram lines and 36 tram services, while there are 29 stops. Hilal Arıkan, who is among the female mechanics, draws attention with her determination to work, her effort and a desire to read. Arıkan, who graduated from the building design teaching department in 2007, started working as a machinist in the light rail system a year later. Arıkan, who has two children at the age of 7 and 1, took the exam again in 2016 and won the Samsun Ondokuz Mayıs University Faculty of Engineering, Civil Engineering Department. Arıkan, who both worked and continued his education, graduated this year.


Arıkan, who said that he worked while still pregnant and went to his school on the other hand, said, “I was exempted from the 36-hour common course I saw in this department since I graduated from the department of building design teaching and I succeeded to attend the remaining courses within 2 years and graduate from my school. Because my job is shift. The morning shift starts at 05.00 and ends at 14.00. I studied in formal education. I attended evening classes when I worked in the morning and morning classes when I worked in the evening. In this way, I completed my education. I had a very busy period. The chapter is very difficult and requires attention. I finished with work and effort. During this time, I was even pregnant, I gave birth, but despite this, I did not disrupt both my job and my school. ”


Saying that machinism is a difficult profession, Arıkan said, “I love my job. First, those who saw a female mechanic driving the tram were very surprised. 'How can a lady drive this?' He was astonished. People are used to it. We proved that women can do any job without discriminating between men and women. You have to be very careful while using the tram. It's a huge responsibility. The lives of hundreds of people are entrusted to you. ”

Arıkan stated that he is a person who does not like to stay idle and said, “I wanted to improve myself in the field of construction as well. Everything is perseverance and work. It is necessary to think about how I can do better in your location, how I can be more useful. I finished engineering with effort. Now I am both a mechanic, a teacher, a civil engineer, and most importantly, I am the mother of 2 children. ”
