Dr Yeralan was the host of a workshop on the philosophy of engineering.  The workshop brought together researchers from engineering and social sciences to discuss the current issues in engineering and engineering education as well as the role and place of engineering in society, now and in the foreseeable future.

We report on our experience with academic work in the field of sustainability.  The courses IE 499 Sustainable Systems Management and IE 719 Sustainable Systems Engineering were developed with support from TUBITAK.  They were offered in the 2008-2009 academic.  In addition, several graduate students chose sustainability-related topics for their masters theses.

The presentation is available as a PDF file
