»Mehmet Çalışkan

Receiving his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from NCSU, Raleigh, NC/USA in 1983, Professor Çalışkan is currently a faculty member in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Middle East Technical University. Throughout the years he has involved in numerous academic and administrative positions including METU Vice President for Administrative Affairs, assistant head of METU Mechanical Engineering Department, board member of METU Engineering Faculty. His contributions to the university and acoustics society are not limited with professional activities. He has been a volunteer academic advisor for various social clubs like METU American Football team and has been founder and board member of major social organizations as Radio METU.

Professor Çalışkan has been actively involved in research in the fields of architectural acoustics, engineering acoustics, noise control and random vibrations while pioneering education in related fields. Acoustics and vibration being his major concentration, under many different fields of mechanical engineering he served as an advisor for more than 60 number of masters and PhD thesis. Recently, he serves as an acoustical consultant to MEZZO Studio Ltd along with his active academic involvements. Sharing of his valuable knowledge and expertise through various projects is the most honorable motivation for MEZZO team.

In between lines of a full time professional and academic participations Professor Çalışkan finds the mental rest in times spend with his wife Resa either at a classical music concert at CSO (Presidential Symphony Orchestra), a concert venue having a signature of himself, or watching live classical concert broadcasts on MEZZO, or if the season permits in his house enjoying a live American football or a European soccer game.
