Prof. Tekinerdogan received his MSc degree (1994) and a PhD degree (2000) in Computer Science, both from the University of Twente, The Netherlands. He was a faculty member at the University of Twente from 2003 until 2008, following which he joined Bilkent University, where he worked until 2015. He founded and led the Bilkent Software Engineering Group at Bilkent University, which intended to promote software engineering research and education in Turkey. Currently, he is a full professor and chair of the Information Technology group at Wageningen University, The Netherlands.

He has more than 25 years of experience in information technology and software/systems engineering. He is the author of more than 350 peer-reviewed scientific papers and 5 edited books. He has been active in dozens of national and international research and consultancy projects with various large software companies, whereby he has worked as a principal researcher and leading software/system architect. Hence, he has got broad experience in software and systems engineering in different domains such as consumer electronics, enterprise systems, automotive systems, critical infrastructures, cyber-physical systems, satellite systems, defense systems, production line systems, command and control systems, physical protection systems, radar systems, smart metering systems, energy systems, and precision farming. He has taken a holistic, systemic, and multi-disciplinary approach to solving real industrial problems. With this, he has ample experience in software and systems architecting, software and systems product line engineering, cyber-physical systems, model-driven software engineering, aspect-oriented software engineering, global software development, systems engineering, system of systems engineering, data science, and artificial intelligence. All of these topics, he is also actively teaching. He has developed and taught around 20 different academic courses and has provided software/systems engineering courses to more than 50 companies in The Netherlands, Germany, and Turkey.

He has graduated more than 80 MSc students and supervised more than 20 PhD students. He has reviewed more than 100 national and international projects and is a regular reviewer for more than 20 international journals. He has also been very active in scientific conferences and organized more than 50 conferences/workshops on software engineering topics.
