Letter from the Chair

Dear Alumni and Friends of APAM,

Another school year is over. Our graduates and their proud families are gone; convocation signs have been removed from the school and the Department; and we, faculty and staff, have started the task of getting ready for the coming school year.

Looking back we see that 2015-16 has been a good year for us. Our faculty and students have been achieving good results in all programs; we are showcasing some highlights in this issue of APAM News, but there are many more which could have been included.

Our goal remains that of maintaining sustainable growth while working on problems of scientific and societal importance, and transferring such knowledge to our students. Making educated choices based on long-range, multi-step planning is becoming more vital in today’s competitive global economy.

I wish all of you a healthy and productive summer term.


I. Cevdet Noyan
