Ferhan Kayihan is the owner of IETek - Integrated Engineering Technologies, which is a systems engineering consulting company that he started in 1996. He teams with his corporate and manufacturing clients to adapt and implement advanced technologies for new development and performance improvement projects. Ferhan Kayihan also teaches customized in-house short courses to the industry in modeling, control and software development. During 1981-96 he worked for the Weyerhaeuser Company Corporate R&D organization; where, as an Engineering Fellow his responsibilities were mainly in long-range strategic research for process and systems improvement. At Weyerhaeuser Ferhan Kayihan maintained strong collaborative ties with academic associates and sponsored various thesis projects. With IETek he is still active in joint projects with university research groups.

Ferhan Kayihan was educated in Turkey where he received his BS in Chemical Engineering at Robert College in 1970. After receiving his PhD in 1974 from University of California at Santa Barbara, he spent his early professional years as a chemical engineering faculty at UC Santa Barbara, University of Bosphorus in Istanbul, Purdue University and Oregon State University. He received the Oregon State University 1981 College of Engineering Carter Award for outstanding and inspirational teaching as voted by the graduating seniors. Ferhan Kayihan is an industrial trustee of CACHE since 1995 and has been selected as a co-recipient of the 1999 CAST Computing Practice Award. As an active member of AIChE, TAPPI, CPPA and AAMI Ferhan Kayihan participates in professional meetings with contributions to program committees, session organizations, tutorial workshops and keynotes.
