Baku, December 25, AZERTAC

Baku Higher Oil School (BHOS) has hosted an event dedicated to the Day of Solidarity of World Azerbaijanis and the New Year. The event was attended by the leadership, teachers, administrative workers and students of Baku Higher Oil School.

The event started with the performance of the anthem of Azerbaijan. In his opening speech, Rector of Baku Higher Oil School Elmar Gasimov congratulated the entire BHOS family on the Day of Solidarity of World Azerbaijanis and the upcoming 2020, and wished them success in the new year.

The rector noted that the Day of Solidarity of World Azerbaijanis, which has been celebrated since December 31, 1989, is a holiday that plays an important role in establishing unity and solidarity with all Azerbaijanis living in different countries.

“The outgoing 2019 year was remarkable for our country and our people. As a result of the purposeful policy carried out in Azerbaijan, the dynamic development of our country has accelerated, its international reputation has strengthened, and the welfare of our people has increased. This year was also successful for the oil and gas sector. The celebration of the 70th anniversary of the legendary "Oil Rocks", the commissioning of the Trans-Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline (TANAP) went down in history as landmark events in the field of energy. The year 2019 was also successful for Baku Higher Oil School, which is a higher education institution training highly qualified engineers for the energy sector. This year, our school has successfully continued its mission of training professional, highly intellectual personnel."

Elmar Gasimov also noted that in accordance with Decree of President Ilham Aliyev “On granting a presidential scholarship to the students who entered the higher education institutions in the Republic of Azerbaijan in 2018/2019 academic year”, 23 BHOS students who showed the highest results in the first group of specialties were awarded a presidential scholarship.

“This year, high school graduates who scored the highest points in Group I again chose studying at BHOS. 103 students who entered universities in the 2019/2020 academic year scored more than 650 points. This year, as in the previous years, the two departments of BHOS – Information Security and Process Automation Engineering – had the highest passing scores of 673,5 and 657,8 points, respectively, among universities in the country. It should also be noted that all BHOS graduates work in international, transnational and local companies”, he said.

The event featured the screening of video fragments from the operetta “If Not That One, Then This One”, performed by BHOS students. Then, the persons who were involved in the production of the operetta were awarded.
