Dear Senior Students of EEE,

As in the past year, our department will organize an award ceremony this year in order to recognize the success of our senior students in various categories. The details of the categories and the application procedure are available here.


Our graduate students Bahadır Çatalbaş and Burak Çatalbaş, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Ömer Morgül as Team Bilkent, earned the award of third prize in TÜBİTAK 2016 International Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Competition-Fixed Wing Category.

Our graduate Talha Erdem (BS '05, MS '11, and PhD '16) has been awarded with the prestigious Newton International Fellowship. Dr. Erdem will continue his research at the University of Cambridge, UK. 
Our Ph.D. graduate Burak Özbey has received the 2016 Felsen Award. Leopold B. Felsen Fund has been bestowing Leopold B. Felsen Award for Excellence in Electromagnetics to promote contributions of the Turkish students/researchers to the field of Electromagnetics since 2007. 

Our Ph.D. student Talha Erdem has received the IEEE Photonics Society 2016 Graduate Student Fellowship for his PhD studies on developing high-efficiency, high stability, and high-quality light-emitting diodes.

Our PhD student Can Kerse together with a team of researchers led by F. Ömer İlday published an article in Nature titled "Ablation-cooled material removal with ultrafast bursts of pulses".

Ali Maleki Gargari, an M.S. student supervised by Assoc. Prof. Vakur Behçet Ertürk has been selected as a recipient of IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S) Eugene F. Knott Memorial Pre-Doctoral Research Grant.

Every year, the IEEE AP-S awards up to six pre-doctoral grants to encourage students to pursue careers in the area of electromagnetics.

Osman Fatih Kılıç, an M.S. student in our department, has received IEEE Best Paper Award at the 24th IEEE Signal Processing and Communications Applications Conference, for his paper entitled "Mixture of Set Membership Filters Approach for Big Data Signal Processing".

The finals schedule of spring 2016 semester is here.
The Second Industrial Design Projects Fair organized by Bilkent University Electrical and Electronics Department will take place at Mithat Çoruh Amphitheater on 17 May. Participants from academy and industry, all faculty members, and students with their families are invited to this event.

The 27th IEEE Graduate Research Conference, organized by the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering and the Bilkent IEEE Student Branch, took place on March 4. 
This year’s schedule included 66 oral presentations, 45 poster presentations and 5 demo presentations by five EEE undergraduate students, who were the recipients of the “best EEE102 projects” awards for the Fall 2015 semester.
At the end of the day, a reception and award ceremony were held. The best presenters were recognized by the Bilkent EEE Department: four “best oral presentation” awards and a “best poster” award are given out.

  • Best presentation award in Signal Processing / Communications / Control areas was given to Dariush Kari for his research on “Boosted Adaptive Filters”.
  • Best presentation award in Biomedical / Electromagnetics areas was given to Niyazi Koray Ertan for his research on “Gradient Array for Spatially Oscillating Magnetic Fields in Multi-Slice Excitation”.
  • Best presentation award in Control / Robotics / Communications / Network areas was given to Mehdi Dabirnia for his research on “Code Design for Binary Energy Harvesting Noisy Channel”.
  • Best presentation award in Photonics / Electronics / Nanotechnology areas was given to Özgün Yavuz for his research on “Control of Pattern Formation in Dissipative, Nonlinear, Far-from-equilibrium Systems via Structured Noise”.
  • Best Poster presentation award was given to Caner Odabaş and Hasan Eftun Orhon for their joint research on “Extending The Lossy Spring-Loaded Inverted Pendulum Model with a Slider-Crank Mechanism”.
