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.


About the Dean


Samad Imamali Yusifov was born in Gazakh region of the Republic of Azerbaijan on November 25, 1947. In 1966-1971 he studied Information and Measurement Technology at Azerbaijan Oil and Chemistry Institute named after M. Azizbekov. He continued his education as a Ph.D. student at V.M. Glushkov Institute of Cybernetics in 1974-1977. He received the degree of Candidate of technical sciences on "Microprocessor Technology" in 1983. He is the author of 54 articles and theses, 1 invention, 6 methodical guides, 1 textbook and the report "Development tendencies of calculation technology" for UNESCO.

From 17.11.2015      Azerbaijan State Oil and Industry University – Dean of Faculty of "Information Technologies and Control"



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".


According to the order of the Rector of Azerbaijan State Oil and Industry University as of 03.02.2016, the faculty of "Manufacturing Production Processes" was renamed to the faculty of "Information Technologies and Control" (ITMF) and has been valid since 04.06.2016. On the basis of this order there were formed the following departments, namely, "The Control and System Engineering" combines two chairs such as "Automation of Manufacturing Processes" and "Automatics, Telemechanics and  Electronics"; on the basis of the departments "Automation Control Systems" and "Computer Technologies and Programming" was created the department "Computer Engineering"; on the basis of the departments "Information Measurements and Computer Techniques", "Metrology, Standards and Quality Control" was created "Instrument Making Engineering” department; on the basis of the departments "Advanced Mathematics" and "Applied Mathematics" was created "General and Applied Mathematics" department. At the faculty there are 130 members of teaching staff, including 8 professors, 86 assistant professors, 10 senior teachers, 26 assistants and 34 supporting personnel in the teaching process.
At the moment, there are 1 Ph.D. and 20 candidates who are engaged in scientific research.


At the faculty 1869 students study for their Bachelor Degree (among them 1847 students study full-time, while 22 study part-time).





  •  “Control and System Engineering” (the head of the department  is Associate Professor A.A. Alizada)
