SHORT BIOGRAPHY

He was born in Adapazarı in 1937. He graduated from Adapazarı Merkez Hacı Köyü Primary School in 1948-1949 academic year, Adapazarı Male Art Institute in 1956 - 1957 academic year,

and then he graduated from Mechanical Department of Istanbul (Yıldız) Technical School as a Mechanical Engineer in 1960 - 61 academic year, and he finished his studies in the Mechanical Specialization Department of the same school as a Mechanical Engineer in 1961 - 62 academic year.

After becoming a Senior Mechanical Engineer, he worked as a Research and Project Engineer at General Directorate of Turkish Cellulose and Paper Factories for 6 months. Then, he started to work at the Turkish Meat and Fish Authority as a Research and Project Engineer. In this institution, he worked as a Revision and Workshop Chief, Machine and Installation Manager Assistant, and for 5 years, from 1970 to 1975, as Machine and Installation Manager, respectively.

During this period, he tried to use all the opportunities of Meat and Fish Institutions in the fields of project designing, manufacturing, assembly, and establishment of refrigeration facilities and equipment, cold storage and meat combinations. Thanks to such effort and leadership, a lot of outstanding works were conducted in this field; the installation of Meat Combine Facilities in Urfa, Elazığ, Bursa, Kayseri, Kars, and Adana, and the installation of Cold Storages in Gaziantep, Amasya, Erzincan, Kastamonu and Bolu, and the installation of Cold Storages in Siverek, Çorum, Çubuk, and Dinar Municipality, as well as the installation of cold storages belonging to Turkish Military Academy and Turkish Air Force Academy, and various Military Units, and also a lot of refrigerated vehicles were designed and installed. While he was working in the same institution and under the same conditions for the installation of Meat Combine Plants in Tatvan, Van, Suluova, Burdur, Sakarya, Ağrı and Manisa, Fatsa and Trabzon Fish Combine Plants, and the installation of Sincan Meat Packaging and Pharcuterie Plants as well as the installation of chicken combine plant, he left his studies in the Meat and Fish Institution in March 1975, and he was appointed as a lecturer at Elazığ State Engineering and Architecture Academy.

In his line of duty at the Meat and Fish Authority, he was assigned to Cyprus under the command of the Prime Ministry with TÜBİTAK team (Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey) to bring the industrial facilities into operation in the Recovered Zone and to establish Kıbrıs Türk Sanayi Holding Limited Şirketi at the end of the Cyprus Second Peace Operation.

In the first years of his life as a Mechanical Engineer, he founded an association in his village, and he conducted such works as providing road, water, and electricity services, and he also worked in the construction of a secondary school and public housing, and he has successfully completed. Today, the village, where he was born, Adapazarı  Merkez Hacı Köyü, a modern village with seventy households, primary and secondary school, and public housing, asphalt road, water, electricity, telephone, agricultural technician, midwife and various possibilities, and many trained and educated people went from the village to the country's different regions in order to serve the country.

While working at the Meat and Fish Authority, he worked as a lecturer at the Male Technical Higher Teacher Education School and at the Private Zafer Engineering and Architecture School and then at Ankara State Engineering and Architecture School.

In addition to these studies, he has published various books and articles. He left the Meat and Fish institution in March 1975, then he started to work at Elazığ State Architecture and Engineering Academy as a permanent lecturer and he also worked as Vice President at this Academy. In addition, as part of the provisional article 12 of the State Architecture and Engineering Academy Law No. 1184, he conducted a valid Proficiency Study instead of a Ph.D. Study on "The Study of the Slush Case in the Cold Storage Unit and the Investigation of the Measures to be Taken to Reduce the Slush Case."

In March 1977, he left Elazığ State Architecture and Engineering Academy and he was appointed to Balıkesir State Architecture and Engineering Academy.

He worked at Balıkesir State Academy of Architecture and Engineering for the first two and a half years as Lecturer and Vice President. In this period, he prepared the thesis for associate professorship on 'Investigation of the Possibilities of Using Solar Energy in Cooling and Air Conditioning Operations' and became an associate professoron the 8thof November 1979. In the maentimeon the 8thhe left his position as Vice President and started to work as Head of the Mechanical Engineering Department and Faculty Member at the same Academy.                             

After Balıkesir State Architecture and Engineering Academy was connected to Uludağ University, under the name of Balıkesir Engineering Faculty with the "Delegated Legislation on Higher Education Institutions Organization" dated July 20, 1982, and number 41, which was legalized by the Law No. 2809 dated 28.03.1983, he continued to conduct studies at the same position.

He also served as a member of the Board of Directors at Uludağ University, Institute of Science and Technology from 24.06.1988 until the establishment of Balıkesir University on 03.07.1992.

In accordance with Article 8 of Law No. 2547 amended by Law No. 3455, he was promoted to Professorship in the Department of Thermodynamics (Refrigeration) at the meeting of the Higher Education Council Executive Board held on 30.10.1989.

He was the President of the Organizing Committee at the 1st Balıkesir Engineering Symposium held on 26-27 April 1988, the 2nd Balıkesir Engineering Symposium held on 30-31 May 1991, and also the 3rd Balıkesir Engineering-Architecture Symposium held on 10-11 April 1995.

Prof. Sabri SAVAŞ also worked as Vice-Rector of Balıkesir University from 17.11.1994 until 25.10.1999.
