Assist. Prof. Dr. Faruk TOKDEMİR

Short Biography:

After graduating from the Department of Physics  of Middle East Technical University in 1973, Dr. Faruk Tokdemir worked as a Computer Programmer in the project supported by TUBITAK and carried out with NASA / USA. In this project, he designed and implemented many programs to analyze Gamma Rays originating from astrophysical objects and recorded and sent by the Small Astronomy Satellite (SAS II).

Later, he was involved in a research group investigating UV rays from the International Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE) satellite launched by ESA (European Space Agency). In this project, he developed software to analyze the digital UV spectrum data from celestial bodies (such as binary stars) recorded on magnetic tapes. In these projects,  7/16 Interdata mini-computer system (which was the first in Turkey)  and University central computer (IBM 370/145) were used. The programming languages used were Fortran and IBM Assembler.

He received his M. Sc. Degree in 1980 and Ph.D. degree in 1985 from the Physics Department of the Middle East Technical University. Afterwards, he was involved as an Assistant Professor  at the Department of Computer Engineering. He also taught computer science courses at Sultan Qabus / Oman University in 1995 and Manas University in Kyrgyzstan in 2006 as a short-term faculty member.

He worked as a manager in many educational and applied projects. Dr. Faruk Tokdemir retired on January 1, 2015 and started to work at THK University as a faculty member.

Dr. Faruk Tokdemir holds CISCO Java programming and Oracle Java programming certificates.  In addition to his other publications, he has a textbook called FORTRAN77 (English). He is also a co-author of a book entitled KOCABEY, which describes all aspects of village life.
