Engineering Faculty was founded in 1973.This faculty had been called Power Engineering, Automation and Mechanical Engineering since 1976. In 1992 Power Engineering was separated and the Faculty was called Automation-Mechanical Engineering. In 1997 Mechanical Engineering was decomposed and there was established a Faculty called Automation.
The Faculty of Engineering was established on the basis of engineering professions which are based on the Power Engineering in 2006. Nowadays dean of Engineering Faculty is associate professor Ulduz Kheyrulla oglu Aghayev.
Faculty staff consists of 5 professors, Doctor of technical sciences, 12 associate professors Candidate of technical sciences, 17 senior lecturers and 6 assistants.
At present 4 PhD students on doctor of sciences program, 17 PhD candidates on doctor of philosophy program are engaged in scientific work in the Faculty.
Education is lead in full-time and correspondence forms. 521 students – among them 487 students study in Bachelor’s degree (432 students are enrolled in full-time and 55 in the correspondence) and 34 students for Master’s degree are enrolled in the education process.
There are 4 departments in the Faculty:
Department of Information and Computer Technics
Department of Metrology and Standardization
Department of Information Technologies and Programming
Department of Process Automation
