It is with great saddness that we have learned the passing away of our colleague Mete A. Sözen.
After having graduated from Robert College (RC'51), Dr. Sözen obtained his PhD form the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. He served on the Faculty of UIUC for most of his tenure, he last held the position of Kettelhut Distinguished Professor of Structural Engineering at Purdue University.
His impact on the prrofession has been recognized though many prestigious awards including and honorary doctorate from Boğaziçi University.
