The School of Science and Engineering awards a Bachelor of Science (BS) Degree to students who have satisfactorily completed four-year programs in selected fields of science and engineering.
The curricular requirements for the Bachelor of Science degree consist of a minimum of 128 required credits. Students are required to take a summer internship during the period of study and to have a satisfactory record approved by the School.
The School offers BS degree programs in:
The scope, objectives and degree requirements for the majors offered by the School are given below.
The requirements for all the majors in undergraduate programs include:
The Computer Science Program is designed to accommodate students who want to receive professional training in computer science but do not necessarily have a strong interest in computer systems hardware. Within the curriculum, students study subject matter in software engineering, principles of programming languages, data structures, high level programming languages, operating systems, computer modeling, computer networks, artificial intelligence, etc.
The objective of this program is to prepare students either for postgraduate study or for immediate employment, with achievement of professional excellence in a wide range of industrial, business, and non-industrial environments, which interface with the information processing systems.
Computer engineering is concerned with the modeling, analysis, design, and applications of computer-related systems. Its study provides education at the undergraduate level necessary to understand, design, implement and use the software and hardware of computers and systems. Students study all principal aspects of computer systems: logic design, computer system architecture, data structures, algorithms, operating system concepts, and application of hardware and software systems in both engineering and non-engineering contents. Students combine these computer engineering studies with pertinent aspects of electrical engineering such as: circuit theory, signals and systems, electronic circuits and design, integrated circuits and device utilization.
Petroleum and Gas Engineering deals with the fluid flow through subsurface formations, drilling, production, reservoir engineering and transportation of oil, gas, and other subsurface resources.
Azerbaijan has a very rich historical tradition of the oil industry. Today many international oil companies are operating in Baku, creating broad internship opportunities for the students and employment opportunities for the graduates of the School.
The curriculum in petroleum engineering includes sufficient training in basic engineering sciences to prepare the graduates for the application of engineering principles to the petroleum industry. Courses in geology give an understanding of the geological structures and conditions favorable for petroleum deposits.
The engineering fundamentals and computer tools with application to a broad range of engineering problems are emphasized.
The curriculum in Civil Engineering is planned to provide a sound professional education for the students. After completing courses in basic sciences, students are offered courses in Applied Mechanics, Hydraulics, Geodesy, Materials, Construction Engineering, etc. Practical experience is required for the degree and accordingly, students are required to undertake a summer internship. Elective courses are offered to enable the students to advance their knowledge in specific fields.
