Vedat Yerlici 1929 - 2018

It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing away of Vedat Yerlici.

Vedat Yerlici was a legendary professor of civil engineering. Having graduated from RC Engineering in 1951, he returned home in 1956 as a teacher. Until his full retirment more than 50 years later, he not only became one of the most loved professors in the history of the University, but served many years as the Dean of Engineering, and had a profound impact on defining the Boğaziçi culture.

He will be dearly missed.
