Bedir Tekinerdogan received his MSc degree in Computer
Science in 1994, and a PhD degree in Computer Science in 2000, both from the
University of Twente, The Netherlands. From September 2003 until
September 2008 he served as an assistant professor at University of Twente.
Currently he is a faculty member at Bilkent University in
Turkey. He received the rank of Associate Professor from the Turkish
Inter-University Council (UAK) in June 2010.
He has around 20 years of professional experience in software
engineering research and education. His key research topic is software
architecture design and related to this software product line engineering, model-driven software development, aspect-oriented
software development, and global software development. He has been active in
different national and international research and consultancy projects with various software
engineering companies such as Philips (The Netherlands), NXP (The
Netherlands), Embedded Systems Institute (The Netherlands), Thales BV (The
Netherlands), Siemens Nixdorf (The Netherlands), Havelsan (Turkey), Aselsan
(Turkey), Meteksan Defence (Turkey) and Cybersoft (Turkey). He has been a
reviewer of around 50 academic and industrial software projects.
He is the author of more than 150 scientific
publications on different topics in software engineering, holding h-index of
He has been the organizer of more than 50 workshops and
served on the program committees and organising committees for
conferences and workshops related to
aspect-oriented software development, software architecture design,
global software development, service-oriented modeling, model-driven software development, and software product line engineering.
He is a steering committee member of the so-called Early
Aspect-Oriented Software Development Group (since 2004). In Turkey, he has been the principal initiator of the Biannual
National Software Architecture Design Conferences (started in 2005), the
National Aspect-Oriented Workshop Series (started in 2003), the National
Model-Driven Software Development Workshop Series (started in 2008), and the
National Software Product-Line Engineering Workshop Series (started in 2012). He is the
steering committee chair of the Turkish Software Architecture Group (since
From 1994 on, he has taught courses on
different topics in software engineering including
software architecture design, aspect-oriented software development,
model-driven software development, software product line engineering,
object-oriented programming, object-oriented analysis and design, and
object-oriented design patterns. In Turkey, he has pioneered the introduction
of various academic software engineering courses such as software
architecture design (2002), aspect-oriented software development (2002),
model-driven software development (2008) and software product line
engineering (2008). He has given dozens of courses to software companies.
He is the founder and leader of the Bilkent Software
Engineering Group (Bilsen) which aims to foster research and education on
software engineering in Turkey.
