The foundation of the faculty of Engineering was laid in 1973 with the establishment of the faculty of Energy-Automation of Production Processes-Mechanics. Later, the faculty was named "Energy, automation and mechanics", "Automatics-mechanics", "Automatics". After Sumgayit State University was established in 2000 on the basis of Azerbaijan Industrial Institute, the name of the faculty was "Computer technics and technologies", and since 2004 "Computer techniques and information technologies". In 2006, the "Engineering" faculty was established on the basis of automation and management, information and computing technology, mechanics, electronic technology, logistics and transport technologies, mechatronics and robotics, and prospective energy-oriented engineering specialties.
The faculty is headed by docent Ulduz Agayev Kheyrulla oglu.
The faculty consists of 56 professors and teaching assistants, including 5 professors, 12 associate professors, 15 senior lecturers, 6 assistants, 4 tutors, 4 head of laboratory and 10 laboratory assistants.
Currently, there are 3 doctoral students in the Ph.D. program , 9 doctoral students in the doctor of sciences program and 9 dissertation students working on their dissertations in the faculty.
Teaching at the faculty is carried out in full-time and part-time form. 602 students: 583of them are studying at the bacheor´s level (470 students at the full-time department and 113 students at the part-time department) and 19 students at the masterʾs level.
There are 4 specialized departments at the faculty:
Electronics and computer equipment
Information technologies and programming
Automation and Control
Mechanics and transport technologies
Two specialties have been awarded the international certificate of the European independent accreditation company (ASIIN):
At the bachelor's level
Specialization in process automation engineering
At the master's level
Energy management specialty
Specialist training in the following specialties is carried out at the undergraduate level:
Process automation engineering
Mechatronics and robotics engineering
Logistics and transport technology engineering
Engineering of the organization of transportation and management in transport
Specialist training in the following specialties is carried out at the master's level:
Information systems in management

The main scientific-research directions of the faculty:
Research and development of information systems and elements
Development of theoretical and practical issues of automated design, construction, modeling and management tools
Creation of automated management systems of production processes
Theoretical foundations of two-phase media mechanics and calculation of structural elements.
The faculty has 8 teaching laboratories that meet modern requirements:
Computer technologies and programming
Information technologies and systems
Electronic converters and measurements
Automation and information technology
Technological measurements and technical means
Automatic adjustment, digital control systems
Mechanics, standardization and measurement technique
Creation of inter-university innovation network, video conference room in the direction of development of cooperation in enterprises.
The faculty has a special place in expanding SSU's relations with foreign countries. With the support of the Ministry of Education, since 2004, at the Azerbaijan State Oil and Industry University, Azerbaijan Technical University and Mingachevir State University based on cooperation with the University of Cologne in Germany and the Heerlen Higher Technical School in the Netherlands, a curriculum adapted to European standards has been developed for the Bachelor's degree in Process Automation Engineering, at master's level since 2007, specialist training for the Energy Management specialty for the chemical industry has been started within the framework of the Tempus project. Within the framework of these projects, educational laboratories equipped with modern equipment were created in the faculty and made available to students, lecture notes and methodological materials of the subjects taught at the bachelor's and master's levels were printed and included in the library fund. . The achievements gained as a result of the work done within the framework of the TEMPUS project were also applied in other specialties of the faculty.
In 2010, Sumgayit State University became the winner of the TEMPUS project called "Creation of Inter-University Innovation Network for the Development of Cooperation with Enterprises".
Employees of the faculty have participated in professional development in Germany's Berlin Technical University, Netherlands' Twente University, Turkey's Gazi University, in Spain within the framework of ERASMUS+, PETRA international projects.
Within the framework of the project, an inter-university innovation network was created, and a video conference hall was put into use.The hall is equipped that meets modern requirements and is connected to a high-speed fiber optic internet network. In the videoconference room with universities they participated in the project: Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas, Ufa State Aviation University, Tyumen State Oil and Gas University, Ufa State Oil Technology University, Ukhta State Technical University; Poltava Technical University of Ukraine, Ivanovo-Frankovsk National Technical University; Belarusian National Technical University of Belarus, Polotsk State University; Warwick University of Great Britain, Krakow University of Poland, Sweden's Royal University of Technology and Azerbaijan State Oil and Industry University the equipment is used to organize video conferences, distance lectures, etc. on the transfer of innovation technologies. Organization of distance courses from the video conference room, providing distance advice for part-time students, holding joint online scientific conferences and seminars, etc. it is also used in directions
Dissertation defense councils operate in the faculty for the Doctor of Philosophy and Doctor of Science degrees in Systematic analysis, management and information systems, Information-measurement and management systems.
Student Scientific Society, Student Council, Student Youth Organization, and Student Free Trade Union organization operate in the faculty.
