An-Najah National University has established an impressive record of research activity in the field of photovoltaic systems.  Thanks to on-going collaborative relationships with local and international universities.  These research findings have been published in peer-reviewed scientific and prestigious journals.


A group of researchers from An-Najah University have been featured among World’s Top 2% Scientists List created by Stanford University. Dr. Tamer Al-Khatib from the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology has been ranked for his research publications citations and their lifetime contribution to their specific fields of research especially in the field of Photovoltaic Systems.

Dr. Al-Khatib published five research papers in the field of photovoltaics and renewable energy. He developed a mechanism to install photovoltaic systems in remote areas using segmentation and regional technique in cooperation with two researchers from Malaysia.
