Faculty of Information Technologies and Control

History of the faculty

 

Faculty of "Information Technologies and Control" is based on the “Automation of  Production Processes” department which was founded in 1961. The establishment of this faculty was a historical necessity allowing to come into being the technical faculties development and control in the field of Power Engineering, Oil-Gas and Oil-Chemistry.

 

We should note the names of scientists and teachers - the founders who made a great contribution to the creation, prosperity and development of the department, namely, academicians I.A. Ibrahimov, T.A. Aliev, Associates of ANAS R.A. Aliyev, A.A. Abdullayev, S.G. Karimov, and professors I.A. Nabiyev, N.H. Farzana, R.M. Mirsalimov, I.M. Abdullayev, I.R. Afandiyev and others.

 

The faculty Dean’s position in different periods of time was in turn taken by lecturers I.A. Nabiyev  (1961-1963),  H.H. Samadov (1963-1979), R.A. Zeynalov (1979-1993), I.M. Abdullayev (1993-2003), T.A. Aliyev (2003-2011), R.N. Allahverdiyev (2011-2015), respectively.

 

Samad Imamali Yusifov was appointed a Dean in 2015.

Originally  "The Automation Manufacturing Processes" faculty included such departments as "Control Measuring Devices", "Automation of Manufacturing Processes", "Automatics and Telemechanics" on the basis of which there were created three independent departments such as "Automation of Manufacturing Processes", "Automatics, Telemechanics and Electronics", "Electric Measurements and Calculating Techniques". Then on the basis of the existing departments, there were created such departments as "Applied Mathematics", "Metrology, Standards and Quality Management", "Automation Control Systems", "Computer Technology and Programming", "Biomedical Equipment". The faculty also involves scientific research laboratories: "Automation of Production and Technological Processes", "Local System Automation", "Scientific Instrument Making", and "Intelectual Control Systems".

 

At the faculty there are 169 members of teaching staff, including 8 professors, 2 honored professors, 65 assistant professors, 11 senior teachers, 39 assistants, 39 supporting personnel and 5 employees of the construction bureau in the teaching process.
At the moment, there are 26 Ph.D. and 30 candidates for the program of the doctor of philosophy and 4 Ph.D. and 7 candidates for the program of the doctor of science work at the faculty.

 

At the faculty 3017 students study for their Bachelor Degree (among them 2962 students study full-time, while 55 study part-time). In the departments of the FITС 181 students are studying at the I grade of Master Degree and 140 - at the second.

 

 

Departments:

 

  •  “İdarəetmə və sistemlər mühəndisliyi” (kafedra müdiri, dosent F.H.Ağayev). Bu kafedra “İstehsal proseslərinin avtomatlaşdırılması” və “Avtomatika, telemexanika və elektronika” kafedralarının  bazasında yaradılıb. Kafedrada “İnformasiya texnologiyaları”, “Elektron qurguları”, “Sensor sistemləri və kontrollerli idarəetmə” kimi tədris laboratoriyaları fəaliyyət göstərir. Bundan başqa ATE NAU LTD-nin yardımı ilə ABŞ-ın “Crestron” .irk’tinin “Bina avtomatlaşdırılması” laboratoriyası yaradılmışdır.
