DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
NEU is among the research oriented universities in Turkey. Necmettin Erbakan University, though a newly established state university in 2010, with 15 Faculties, 4 Colleges, 4 Institutes, 13 Research Centers and a State Musical Conservatory, is privileged of housing three oldest higher educational institutions in Konya city. Over 30.000 students (more than 6.000 postgraduate and one thousand international students) with over 3.000 academic and administrative staff are contributing to the university's research and academic activities, making it one of the most important institutes of higher education in Turkey.
Mahmut Sami Büker is currently an Assistant Professor in the field of Renewable Energy Technologies. He has received his PhD on Sustainable Energy Technologies at the University of Nottingham, UK. His main interest areas of research are low/zero carbon technologies for buildings, solar thermal and hybrid PV/T systems, solar assisted heating and cooling applications, thermal comfort, thermal energy storage, enhanced heat transfer and thermodynamics. He has worked on several research and innovation
projects in the scope funded by EU FP7, Horizon 2020, FTI Pilot, TUBITAK, Sustainable Construction iNet, TSB and national/international based energy companies. Some of Dr Büker’s recent publications are listed below,
