Professional Experience:

Professor Guvench received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering from M.E.T.U., Ankara in 1968 and 1970, respectively. He did further graduate work at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio between 1970 and 1975 and received M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Applied Physics. He is currently a Full Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Southern Maine. Prior to joining U.S.M. he served on the faculties of M.E.T.U., Ankara and Gaziantep campuses in Turkey (1975-1980) and at the University of Pittsburgh (1980-1989). He served as Electrical Engineering Department chair at M.E.T.U. Gaziantep (1979-80) and at U.S.M.(1998-99). He also served as chairman (and vice-chair) of IEEE Electron Devices Society, Maine Chapter (1998-2001).

Professor Guvench's teaching and research interests and publications span the field of microelectronics including analog CMOS and bipolar integrated circuit design, semiconductor device technology and its application in biomedical and sensor development, finite element and analytical modeling of semiconductor devices and sensors, electronic instrumentation and measurement, and micromachining of silicon and Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS). He received R&D funding and awards from various government agencies and private companies including the National Science Foundation, NIH, NASA, General Motors, National Semiconductor, NATO, University of Pittsburgh and USM.
