Physics and Electroenergetics
In 1974, the faculty of Physics and Electroenergetics operated on the basis of the faculty of Energy, Automation of production processes and mechanics. Since 1992, the faculty of Energy was established as a result of the seperation of the faculty into engineering specialties. For more than 60 years, lessons have been taught in full-time and part-time departments, specialists have been trained in the Azerbaijani and Russian departments. In connection with the reforms and structural changes carried out in Sumgayit State University in 2001, staff training was started for a number of new specialties - physics . Therefore, the name of the faculty was changed to the faculty of Physics and electroenergetics.
To date, thousands of specialists have been trained at the faculty, and these specialists work with high professionalism in Azerbaijan as well as in foreign countries.
In 1968-1974, the first dean of the evening department of the faculty of Physics and Electric Power was the corresponding member of ANAS, prof. F.I. Mammadov. Rena Dadashova (1974-1976) worked as the dean of the faculty after him. In the following years, assoc.prof. V.A. Balayev (1976-1984), professor Sh.D. Ibrahimli (1984-1992), assoc. prof. I.A. Alasgarli (1992-1995), assoc. prof. A.B. Amraliyev (1995-2000) an .V.G. Sattarov (2000-2014) led the department.
In April 2014, SSU graduate Tamella Ahmedova Ahmed gizi is in charge. Assoc.prof. T.A. Ahmadova worked in various positions at SSU. She is the author of more than 70 articles and theses, 4 textbooks, 5 methodological instructions and 2 inventions.
T. Ahmadova, one of the students of SSU rendered effective service in the development of education and was awarded the honorary title of "Honored teacher" in 2017.
In recent years, 4 new laboratories (Physical Electronics, Solid State Electronics, Thermal Energy and Energy Engineering) have been established in the faculty. Semiconductor Physics, Electroenergetics-1, Electroenergetics-2, Fundamentals of Electroenergetics, Electrotechnics and measurement technique laboratories have been completely renovated and equipped with modern equipment and new devices.
In the academic year of 2013-2014, the faculty opened the specializations of Thermal Energy Engineering, and in the academic year of 2015-2016, Power machine building engineering. At present, bachelor"s training is carried out here in 7 specialties (Physics, Physics teaching, Electric power engineering, Thermal power engineering, Electrical engineering, Electrical and electronics engineering, Power engineering). At the master"s level, there are 11 specializations (Electrical supply (by fields), Automation and electrical transmission of industrial facilities and technological complexes, Electric power, Electric network and systems, High voltage technique and physics, Methodology and methodology of teaching physics, Semiconductor physics, Thermal physics and molecular physics, Semiconductor devices and microelectronics, Atomic and molecular physics, Thermal power plants) masters are prepared.
Currently, 3 doctors of sciences, professors, 29 candidates of sciences, associate professors, 6 senior lecturers, 8 assistants, 4 tutors and 21 teaching assistants work in the faculty. Depending on the specialty, 4 doctoral and 3 dissertation students, and 3 doctoral students in the doctor of sciences program are engaged in scientific work full-time and part-time.
Teaching at the faculty is carried out in full-time and part-time form.
There are 716 people in the faculty: 664 of them are bachelor"s students (401 full-time, 176 part-time, 87 in the contingent) and 52 master"s students (50 full-time and 2 in the contingent).
The faculty cooperates with Baku State University, Azerbaijan State Oil and Industry University, Institute of Physics of ANAS, including foreign universities - Ufa State Oil Technical University, Kazan State Energy University, Belarus State University, Solid State and Semiconductor Physics of the Belarusian Academy of Sciences. The Institute cooperates with Kazan National Research Technical University, Pskov State University, St. Petersburg Technical University, Atyrau State Oil and Gas University, Voronezh Forestry Technical University and other universities.
As a result of the projects implemented and purposeful measures in recent years, they have accelerated progress of the faculty and is expanding its foreign relations.
On December 13, 2019, the head of the department of Electromechanics, assoc.prof. T.K. Huseynov gave an overview lecture to the students and young scientists of Kazan State University of Energy, and associate professor N.M. Hajibalayev (2019) and Sh.H. Mammadov (2018) gave master classes to the students of Kazan State University of Energy.
The faculty has 20 teaching laboratories: Physics of semiconductors and Dielectrics ETL at the department of Solid State and Semiconductor Physics (This laboratory was established in 2001 according to the order of the Ministry of Education No. 276/06), Modern problems of Electric power engineering at the department of Electrical engineering and Energy (This laboratory is K02 of the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Azerbaijan -created by order No. 23/02) .
Serious steps have been taken to strengthen the material and technical base of the faculty, and 2 computer rooms meeting modern technologies, equipped with devices and equipment that meet modern requirements, have been put into use. The new laboratories are designed for the acquisition of professional competencies of students studying electrical engineering, electrical power engineering, physics and physics.
Stands made by the university are used to carry out laboratory work on electric machines, electric transmission, operation and repair of electric devices, electric and electronic devices, and stands made by the German company Leybold Didactic are used for the subjects of basics of electric machines and power electronics and power supply of electric equipment. A teaching studio equipped with a special video device and a computer set with software is used for preparing lectures. Branches of 3 departments have been established in institutions and in the faculty. The branch of the electromechanics department operates in Azerishig OJSC, the solid state and semiconductor physics department and the branches of the electrical engineering and energy departments operate in Azerenerji OJSC Northern RTCI. In the department of electromechanics, laboratory works in some subjects are held in the branch of Azerishik JSC.
In order to improve the quality of education, in addition to these laboratories, an open-air educational museum of electric power and a training ground (110 kV substation) were organized in the courtyard of the university.
The international and national scientific conferences, round tables, webinars and seminars held in the last few years attract attention with their relevance and modern content.
In 2015, the international scientific conference on "Modern scientific-technical and applied problems of energy" was held, in 2018, "Current issues of applied physics and energy" (May 24-25), in 2019, "Energy specialties" with the participation of foreign guests. 1st Republican Scientific Conference (May 30-31) entitled "Actual Issues of Personnel Training" (May 30-31), II International "Actual Issues of Applied Physics and Energetics" in 2020, "Actual Issues of Personnel Training in Energy" in 2021 The 2nd Republican scientific conferences (May 30-31) were held.
