PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM WITH SIEGEN UNIVERSITY OF GERMANY (ZU PROGRAM)

 

The Bachelor Program of Business Nеw Тechnologies (ZU PROGRAM) was founded on 2001 in accordance with the joint program on "Collaboration program to develop the Bachelor of Emerging Technologies" between Azerbaijan State Oil and Industry University (former Azerbaijan State Oil Academy) and Siegen University (Germany).

The Program offers the graduate degree of bachelor majors in:

 

 -BUSINESS INFORMATICS

 -INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING 

 -MARKETING 

 -MECHATRONICS 

 -COMPUTER ENGINEERING

 

INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING  Industrial engineers combine technical expertise and economic judgment together. It is not just an addition of information on branches of technology and methodological expertise in economics, but an integrated thinking in the analysis of problems and in solving tasks in industry and economy.

Industrial engineers are intended to create all connections between the various specific working and thinking of scientists, engineers on specific disciplines, computer scientists, economists, lawyers and other specialists.

The need for a universal professional image result from the division of labour processes of industry, trade and service. The majority of specializations practice a lack of understanding and sensitivity for complex operations, which requires integration of thinking on technical language with commercial categories. This gap should be counterbalanced by industrial engineers.

 

 BUSINESS INFORMATICS Major of Siegen University Program at Azerbaijan State Oil and Industry University prepares future graduates capable of working with all types of social and economic data, with regard to their gathering, processing, control and the development of information systems. The graduates will be able to implement all the data into financial systems for the analysis of achieved results in social and finance areas.

The aim of Faculty is to ensure that all the students improve their learning in social and economic strategies, decision making and forecasting skills quickly, and reach their learning goals.  The students are provided with individual attention and support throughout the courses to ensure that they progress rapidly and achieve their learning objectives.

Business Informatics Major of Siegen University Program at Azerbaijan State Oil and Industry University study is based on a credit system which is compatible with the European standard. The faculty offers the chance to study subjects in the English language. Bachelor’s study takes place over four years. During each year students are evaluated in terms of the number of earned credits. Bachelor study ends with the defence of a final work and graduates obtain a Bachelor’s degree. The study programs can be taken only as a full-time course and improve the student's career opportunities.

 

MECHATRONICS which is also called mechatronic engineering, is a multidisciplinary branch of engineering that focuses on the engineering of both electrical and mechanical systems, and also includes a combination of robotics, electronics, computer, telecommunications, systems, control, and product engineering. As technology advances over time, various subfields of engineering have succeeded in both adapting and multiplying. The intention of mechatronics is to produce a design solution that unifies each of these various subfields. Originally, the field of mechatronics was intended to be nothing more than a combination of mechanics and electronics, hence the name being a combination of both mechanics and electronics; however, as the complexity of technical systems continued to evolve, the definition had been broadened to include more technical areas.

These programs combine mechanical and electrical engineering with science, mathematics and communications. Students are able to focus on specific areas of interest in the field, such as engineering design and analysis, digital control systems or manufacturing maintenance.

- Process control

- Machine automation

- Electronics

- Linear circuits

- Computer-aided design (CAD)

- Manufacturing processes

A bachelor's degree program in mechatronic engineering generally takes four years to complete. Students spend their first two years studying math, science, introductory engineering and other general education requirements. The next two years focus on theoretical and scientific approaches. Core courses may include robotics analysis, fluid dynamics, automated system programming, linear circuits, mechanical dynamics and design laboratory. Students may be required to complete a mechatronic engineering design project to graduate from this program.

 

MARKETING The Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing effectively responds to the needs of today's companies. Throughout the four years of intensive study, the knowledge and skills necessary to be an international, decisive professional who is fully adapted to the business world are developed. The Bachelor program develops the tools and skills that students will need to manage the increasing challenges of the business world and, in particular, the areas of general marketing management. Upon completion of this program, students have the foundation and skills to develop a successful career upon entering the workforce.

The Bachelor programs lay the foundations of general knowledge in language, mathematics, and social sciences to widen and increase appreciation of issues that affect student’s life and that may impact future career paths or development. Additionally, the program prepares students to analyze and develop an understanding of the many factors that affect a business situation and provides the tools to propose solutions to problems and opportunities. The program develops skills in the areas of accounting, finance, marketing, operations, human resources, and economics among others while developing communication skills and operating within a legal and ethical framework.

 

BUSINESS INFORMATICS program provides in-depth knowledge and skills required to evaluate, implement, use and manage information systems in organizations. The program produces graduates with solid business background who understand the role of information systems in improving efficiency and effectiveness of organizations; and who are able to bridge the gap between business and information technology area.

- gain knowledge in business processes and associated work practices, requirements and information needs

- acquire theoretical knowledge to reflect critically on professional practice in the areas of business analysis, change management and implementation, project management and business strategy, and the planning of information systems

- analyze and evaluate complex problems in a range of different information systems situations

- learn skills to communicate and interpret information systems programs to technical and non-technical stakeholders.

Business informatics is concerned with the development and deployment of IT and communications technology-based solutions to resolve business problems, and with the analysis and assessment of the suitability of new information technologies for application in practical business environments. Business informatics places less emphasis on the acquisition of pure hardware and programming expertise and allows students to focus more on developing their abilities to create IT-based solutions and to work collaboratively to implement solutions in company and corporate environments. In addition to introducing students to the fundamentals of information processing, bachelor program in business informatics aims to teach students the analytical skills required to solve problems in business economics.

The interdisciplinary character of business informatics provides students with numerous options to pursue specialist interests during their degree studies and in their subsequent careers.
