- Why did you choose BHOS? Is there anything you would like to highlight regarding your experience at BHOS?
After deciding to be a chemical engineer in my school years, I started to search for universities in this field. Then, I found out about Baku Higher Oil School, it was a completely newly founded university with a promising education system, modern campus, active student life, and then it became my dream and aim to be a part of this university.

I believe that with proper time management, planning and organization I can deal with all the problems I come across in my education and career life.
- Can you please tell us briefly about postgraduate study?
I am Master's student and DAAD Scholarship Holder at the Friedrich Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuremberg in Germany in the field of Advanced Materials and Processes. My interest areas and research portfolio are advanced process engineering, sustainable technologies, and green catalysis. The theoretical and industrial background that I gained at BHOS helps me a lot during my current studies. Besides this, I should mention that self-study is an integral part of the BHOS education system. We worked on several design and scientific projects where we had a chance to develop our research, analytical, and decision-making skills which I take advantage of during my career.
