“TÜBA Awards” consisting of TÜBA-GEBİP (Outstanding Young Scientist) and TÜBA-TESEP (Authored Scientific Book) organized under the auspices of the Presidency of the Republic of Turkey have been given. Two of our academics were awarded in the Engineering category.

ITU Faculty of Civil Engineering, Department of Civil Engineering faculty member Assoc. Prof. Dr. Cihan Bayındır received an award in the field of hydraulics, while Faculty of Chemical-Metallurgical Engineering, Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering faculty member Dr. Cem Örnek received an award in the field of materials and corrosion sciences.

TÜBA-GEBİP Awards have been given since 2001 to outstanding young scientists working in the fields of nature, engineering, health sciences and social sciences to continue their scientific studies in Turkey, to form their own working groups, and to reward and encourage internationally qualified projects and publications originating from Turkey. The awards will be presented by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan to their owners at the ceremony to be held at the Presidential Complex.
