ENGLISH BIOGRAPHY

Nazif Tepedelenlioğlu
(1941-1999)
Nazif Tepedelenlioğlu received his BS and MS degrees in Electrical Engineering from METU Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department in 1962 and 1963, respectively. He went to the USA in 1964 and received his PhD degree from the Polytechnical Institute of Brooklyn in January 1969. In METU, Dr. Tepedelenlioğlu first served as an assistant (1962-1963 ) and after his rejoining in 1969, he worked in the positions of instructor (1969), assistant professor (1969-78), and associate professor (1978-1983). He was the chairman of METU Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department between 1970 and 1971. He lectured on many subjects, including telecommunications, electronics, signal processing, stochastic processes and linear systems. He established the telecommunications group of the METU Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department; supervised many MS and PhD theses, and contributed a lot to the education of faculty, not only in METU, but also in other universities. He supervised many projects for the government and industry.

He was dismissed in September 1983 according to a military junta law No.1402, which had to be executed without giving any explanation neither to the employee nor the employer. He had to go abroad, since the law No.1402 did not allow its victims to be reemployed by any other institution of the government. Dr. Tepedelenlioğlu then worked (1983-1999) as a professor at Florida Institute of Technology (FIT), where he supervised NASA projects and was selected by FIT students continuously as the best educator of the year. Many of his research work had impacts on industrial applications in the USA.
