BSc. of Geophysical engineering


Geophysical Engineering is the scientific method of locating and extracting different natural resources from the earth, including ores, minerals, precious gems, water, or gases.

Geophysical Engineers utilize their extensive knowledge of the earth to identify sites that may contain special mineral or stone deposits that could be of interest to mining companies and other corporations. They then plan how the resources will be drawn out of the earth in the most efficient and environmentally friendly manner. In addition, a Geophysical Engineer may improve upon the current extraction methods being used in operating mines.


Where does a geophysical engineer work?


Most Geophysical Engineers work in remote areas that could be utilized for mines or are currently being mined. This may require extensive travel and longer work hours for some. However, occasionally a mine will be located near a large city. Geophysical engineers with more experience may be managing operations from an office environment, which typically involves extensive communication with others via email and phone.

Most work for private engineering firms, while others work for metal ore mining and coal mining companies.

Geophysical engineers can work for architectural and engineering firms, private extraction and mining companies, the government or as professors at universities.

Our geophysics programs are unique in Azerbaijan. We offer unrivaled courses which are totally based on the Strasbourg University’s program and cover practical applications of the curriculum.


BSc. of Chemical Engineering


Chemical engineers have technical knowledge of chemistry, biochemistry, engineering, materials science and information technology. However, they also know about economics, management, safety and the environment. The tools used include sophisticated scientific experiments, the latest developments in computing, and large-scale pilot plants.

Their work focuses on changing the chemical, biochemical and physical state of a substance to turn it into something else. They understand how to alter raw materials into required products while taking into consideration health and safety and cost issues.

They work in a variety of industries including:

  • Oil and gas
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Energy
  • Water treatment
  • Food and drink
  • Plastics
  • Toiletries

Work may take place in a lab, office or processing plant. Development work may progress from lab to plant or construction site, so travel may be required at certain stages of a project and clothing requirements, for example, the need for safety clothing, may change.

Jobs are quite widely available and process plants are located in industrial areas throughout the Azerbaijan and overseas.

The Faculty of Chemical engineering in UNISTRA is located in the heart of the Upper Rhine area, which was the birthplace of one of the main industrial chemistry centers in the world. Along with the Doctoral School of Chemical Sciences, the Faculty is an internationally recognized research center. Teaching is based on a solid tradition and fostered by the development of many active laboratories.

UNISTRA has 3 Nobel Prize winners in Chemical science.


BSc. of Oil and Gas engineering
