About Tuna Tuğcu

I have received my PhD degree in Computer Engineering from Boğaziçi University in 2001. After working as a post-doc for 18 months in Broadband and Wireless Networking Lab at Georgia Institute of Technology, I was appointed as a visiting professor at Georgia Institute of Technology - Savannah Campus for two years. Currently, I am a professor in the Department of Computer Engineering at Boğaziçi University. I am a faculty member of the Computer Networks Research Lab (NetLab). I also take part in Telecommunications and Informatics Technologies Research Center (TETAM) in Kandilli Campus of Boğaziçi University and the associated TAM project funded by the State Planning Organization of Turkey (DPT).

My research interests include wireless networks, with the emphasis on Cognitive Radio and 5G Networks, as well as Molecular Communications and NanoNetworking. You may follow the "Research" link on the left for my past and present projects.

TEACHING

CmpE150 - Introduction to Computing

This course provides an introduction to computer programming using the C language. It is a required course for all Faculty of Engineering students (except for CMPE students who should register the Java section) as well as CET and MATH students. Students from other departments may take the course subject to availability (via consent of the instructor). There is no web site for this course. All course content will be managed through Teaching.Codes system. You will have access to Teaching.Codes when you register the course.

All course content is accessible via Teaching.Codes system, not BOUN-Moodle. Lecutres, labs, and PS will be taught via Teaching.Codes as well as all exams and quizzes. So, make sure that you install Teaching.Codes plug-in to Eclipse.

CmpE160 - Introduction to Object Oriented Programming

This course introduces basic data structures concepts together with the object oriented programming paradigm. The course is intended solely for CMPE students who have taken CMPE150 in Java.

All course content is accessible via Teaching.Codes system, not BOUN-Moodle. Lectures, labs, and PS will be taught via Teaching.Codes as well as all exams and quizzes. So, make sure that you install Teaching.Codes plug-in to Eclipse.

CmpE567 (formerly CmpE591) - Broadband Wireless Networks

Broadband Wireless Networks course is being video recorded. To access the lecture videos, you may:

  1. Join the CMPE591/567 Broadband Wireless Networks Facebook Group,  or

  2. Follow my channel on YouTube.

Students registered for the course may access the lecture notes via BOUN-Moodle.

 

CMPE59G - NanoNetworking

Though nanotechnology has been a hot topic for nearly a decade, nano-machines are still far from achieving complicated tasks. Therefore, collaborative operation of nano-machines is a must for nanotechnology. Nanonetworking, i.e., communication between nano-machines, is an emerging technology that enables communication at the nanoscale.

This course aims introducing concepts and research topics on communications and networking issues among nano-machines. We will cover nanoscale communication networks ranging from molecular motors for intra-cell communication to diffusion and gap junctions for inter-cell communications. We will also have a brief look at carbon nanotube-based nanonetworks. Our focus will be mostly on bio-hybrid approaches.

Lecture notes and additional material is available to registered students of the course via BOUN-Moodle.
