I am very pleased to announce that our Board of Trustees has approved the promotion of Dr. Yücel Yemez to Professor of Computer Engineering.

Dr. Yemez received his Ph.D. from Boğaziçi University in 1997 and joined our faculty in 2000 after a postdoctoral research period at ENST - Paris (Telecom - Paris Tech).  His main research areas are computer vision and graphics and image processing.  He is a member of the Multimedia, Vision and Graphics lab at Koc University and his research has appeared in the top journals in his field. 

Dr. Yemez has significantly contributed to our Computer Engineering undergraduate and graduate programs by teaching courses at all levels. Finally, he has been an outstanding mentor for graduate students and several of his former students are successfully pursuing academic careers.
