Welcome to the home page of the Nuh Naci Yazgan University Center for Communications Research and Development (N2Y – C2RD). N2Y – C2RD was established on May 29 2015 with the grants received from the Nuh Naci Yazgan University, Texas Instruments, Industrialists in Kayseri and KTU graduates in Kayseri. Currently, N2Y – C2RD has one full-time faculty member, nine undergraduate students conducting research on high-speed wireless/mobile/satellite communications. N2Y – C2RD also has close collaborations and joint projects with the KTU - DSP Lab. and ERU – WCS-RL.
