Prof. Gürdal is the inaugural holder of the Ronald E. McNair Endowed Chair at University of South Carolina.  Prior to joining the University of South Carolina, he held the Chair of Aerospace Structures and Computational Mechanics at TU Delft, The Netherlands.  He also holds Professor Emeritus appointment at Virginia Tech, where he was a Professor jointly appointed between the Aerospace and Ocean Engineering, and Engineering Science and Mechanics Departments.

Prof. Gürdal graduated from Middle East Technical University of Turkey with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering, from Illinois Institute of Technology with a Master of Science degree in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and was awarded a Ph.D. in Aerospace and Ocean Engineering from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.  

Prof. Gürdal’s research interests are in structural and multidisciplinary design and optimization, design and optimization of composite materials and structures, and computational methods for design with manufacturing emphasis. His research has largely been funded by NASA Langley Research Center and Air Force Office of Scientific Research in the US, and EU Research Frame work programs in Europe, as well as major Aerospace OEM in the US and in Europe. He was the principal investigator and co-investigator of more than 60 research grants, majority of which on methodologies for composite laminate design and novel structural configurations, as well as experimental verification of composites structures research.

Prof. Gürdal’s research contributions resulted more than 300 publications, nearly half are refereed journal publications.  He is a co-author of 4 books.  He has delivered keynote speeches and plenary addresses at 14 internationally recognized conferences.

Prof. Gürdal served as the graduate thesis advisor for more than 65 masters and 40 doctoral students. He is a Lifetime member and Associate Fellow of the AIAA, and member of the International Society for Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization.
