One hundred percent of Baku Higher Oil School graduates are employed

         In 2017, Baku Higher Oil School BHOS), where the teaching program is based on the most advanced technologies and experience of the world leading universities, bid farewell to its first graduates. In total, 102 young specialists graduated from the Higher School, including 48 petroleum engineering students and 54 chemical engineering students. Many of them already work in leading transnational companies, while others continue their studies to obtain Master and PhD degrees at prestigious universities in Azerbaijan or abroad. Besides, some of the BHOS first graduates work and study at the same time.

 

          Six graduates of the Higher School are in military service now. Being contracted by Azneft Production Union, they will start working in the company after completion of the military service. Statistical data of BHOS graduates in accordance with their employment are as follows:

          As these data confirm, BHOS graduates do not experience any difficulties in job recruitment in the above mentioned transnational energy companies, as the students of the Higher School actively take part in internship programs of those companies during their academic years. This provides both the companies and the students with an opportunity to know each other more closely.  

 

           In addition, BHOS enjoys close cooperation and friendship ties with leading energy companies, and their top managers and experts regularly conduct master classes, workshops and training courses for the Higher School students. This helps to increase their awareness of the companies’ activities and raise future engineers’ interest in working for those companies.
