With the support and encouragement of the SOCAR Polymer company, during the month of May the Senior Process Engineer Narmin Aslanova reviewed Baku Higher Oil School students’ diploma works. There were 8 papers prepared by the students of the Chemical Engineering department. Narmin read the papers to provide official feedback which characterized the papers as good pieces of work that met all the important requirements. Apart from some minor disadvantages, the papers were in comprehendible language and conformed to the standards.
Another colleague of ours, the Head of HDPE Production Operations, Asif Mammadov has given lectures in the Baku Higher Oil School (BHOS). The lectures on “Energy generation and Utilization” and “Separation Processes” were given to 4th and 5th year students, respectively. Additionally, Asif has also supervised the diploma work of a group of 6 students. The topic of the diploma work is “PMMA (Polymethylmethacrylate) production in Azerbaijan”. This potential project is divided into 6 different parts and each student had simulated those parts in the ANSYS HYSYS software, doing all the necessary calculations and providing a cost analysis for the project. PMMA is one of valuable polymers that are highly priced on the market, making the design project very interesting for the students. In the end, the students prepared a poster describing PMMA in detail and successfully presented their diploma work.
Thus, our company continues the tradition of extending support to students studying relevant disciplines.
