Following her graduation from Erenköy Primary School and Erenköy High School, Nesrin YARDIMCI TİRYAKİOĞLU pursued her education in İstanbul Technical University at the Faculty of Civil Engineering and graduated with Master’s degree in Civil Engineering. She held several positions as a Senior Civil Engineer at Profilo Holding and at General Directorate of State Hydraulic Work between 1966 and 1972. She then joined İstanbul Technical University in January 1972 to carry out her academic career and obtained her PhD in March 1980. She was appointed Assistant Professor in March 1984, Associate Professor in October 1990 and Professor in April 1996.

Prof. Yardımcı, did not only serve as a lecturer at İstanbul Technical University between 1972 and 2008, but also was the Member of the Board at Civil Engineering Faculty between 1995 and 1996 and also between 1998 and 2007. She was the Directorate of Culture and Art Association between 1999 and 2002. She was also the group Coordinator of the Timber and Steel Structures between 2000 and 2007 and Graduate Program Coordinator between 2002 and 2007.  Between 2001 and 2007, she represented Faculty of Civil Engineering at the Senate of İstanbul Technical University. Since September 2008, she has been serving as a Full Professor and since 2012 also as a Chair at Civil Engineering Department, at the Faculty of Engineering at Yeditepe University. She was the Member of the Board at the Faculty between 2011 and 2014 and she represented Faculty of Engineering at the Senate of Yeditepe University between 2015 and 2018.

She was elected as the President of the Board of Directors at Turkish Structural Steelwork Association between 2001 and 2016 and represented Turkey in the Board of Directors at the European Convention for Constructional Steelwork (ECCS) between 2001 and 2018. She was also elected as Vice President between 2008-2009 and President between 2009- 2010 and 2014-2015 at ECCS.  Prof. Yardımcı is the first female member of the Board of Directors and is the first female President of ECCS, which was founded in 1955.

Prof. Yardımcı taught both undergraduate and graduate students at İstanbul Technical University, and during this time she was also appointed to teach at İstanbul, Sakarya and Marmara Universities from time to time. She is still teaching at Yeditepe University Civil Engineering department. She has had 11 English 17 Turkish journal papers, 24 international and 16 national conference papers. She also published 5 research projects, 3 books in Turkish and she is the editor of 2 international symposium books. She has supervised 30 Master and 5 PhD theses and she has been the jury member of 71 Master and 16 PhD theses.

Prof. Yardımcı has organised three symposiums for ECCS. Namely “International Symposium on Steel Structures 2010: Culture & Sustainability”, “8th International Symposium on Steel Bridges 2015: Innovation & New Challenges” and “International Symposium on Corrosion and Surface Protection for Steel (CASP 2019)”.

She worked together with groups made up of İstanbul Technical University’s professionals for ascertainment of damage, repair and retrofitting studies following various earthquakes in earthquake zones in Turkey and she completed various projects auditing and supervising studies.

After her presentations and contacts in ECCS about the earthquakes in Turkey, she has completed a steel building project for a school which was heavily damaged in 1999 earthquake in Kocaeli together with national and international supporters.

When she was the president of TUCSA, she has initiated works to convince the relevant governmental bodies to publish Regulation for Design, Engineering and Execution of Steel Structures starting from December 2006. She has also initiated establishment of TUCSA Academy to organise courses on constructional steelwork for engineers and architects. She is the chairperson of the TUCSA Academic Board.

She was awarded with success in profession prize on 21 April 2010 “for her contribution to Turkish Structural Steelwork Association and for being the president of ECCS” by Tuzla Rotary Club and was honoured with ECCS Silver Medal on 18 September 2015 “in recognition for her outstanding commitment to ECCS”. She was selected by Erenköy High School Associationon as “one of the 102 Erenköy High School graduates who added so much to science, arts and culture on the 102. Anniversary of the school” on 5 October 2019. She was nominated by ECCS Scientific Jury to receive “2019 Charles Massonnet Award” “for the work she has achieved among ECCS Technical and Executive Boards as an active member and the role ECCS President as twice” and approved on 16 April 2019 by ECCS Executive Board Members.

She is the mother of two children.
