Department of Food Engineering and Expertise

When the Azerbaijan Agricultural Institute was established, it was established as the Department of Viticulture and Enology.

One of the first heads of the department was M.A. Khovrenko, considered the "father of Russian winemaking" and the first professor of winemaking in Russia. From 1933 to 1936 he worked as a professor and head of the Department of Viticulture and Enology.

In 1941, it was separated from "Viticulture" and organized as a department of "Technology of winemaking and agricultural products". D.M. Hajiyev was elected the head of the department, associate professor (later doctor, professor, honored scientist of Russia).

In the 30 of the XX century, the associate professor of the department R.A. Mammadov carried out scientific research on "Fundamentals of long-distance transportation of table grapes." Under the guidance of Associate Professor H.A. Atakishiyev, "Determination of the optimal harvesting period of technical grape varieties of Azerbaijan in order to reduce losses and improve product quality", Associate Professor (later Professor) D.M. Hajiyev conducted research on "The impact of oak wood on the quality of cognac." This research was widely used at that time.

In 1953, the departments of "Viticulture" and "Technology of winemaking and agricultural products" were merged into one department. In the following periods, the department was changed several times and during that period the department was headed by N.A. Atakishiyev, A.H. Isgandarov, D.P. Gasimov, Sh.A. Aliyev, J.S Suleymanov. In 1994-2009, the heads of the department were H.K. Fataliyev and F.H. Sharifov.

Since June 2009, 2 departments have been established on the basis of the department. One of them was the department of "Food Engineering and Design". It was formed in 2011 in the form of "Food Engineering and Expertise" after leaving the "Design" department. Since 2009, the department is headed by Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor H.K. Fataliyev.

The department has a teaching material base. There are food technology and expertise laboratories; processing, storage of products and wine cellar, wine enotex, wine, and cognac samples and tasting hall, etc. available. There are opportunities for the practical implementation of teaching and research work in the basement where micro-winemaking conditions are created.

Among them are "Improvement of technology of Azerbaijani wines" (Baku, 2005), "Winemaking" part I (Baku, 1995), "Winemaking" part II (Baku, 1995), "Technology of alcoholic beverages" (Baku, 2007), "Dark alcoholic beverages" (Baku, 2007),“ Commodity of food products ”(Ganja, 2007),“ Technology of storage and processing of plant products ”(Baku, 2010),“ Technology of wine ”(Baku, 2011),“ Organoleptic evaluation and tasting of food products ” (Ganja, 2011), “Standardization and Certification” (Ganja, 2011), “Reports of Food Engineering” (Baku, 2012), “Practicum on Winemaking” (Baku, 2013), “Practicum on Technology of Storage and Processing of Plant Products” ( Baku, 2013), “Technology of functional food products” (Baku, 2014), “Examination of beverages” (Baku, 2015), “Microbiology of wine” (Baku, 2016), “Improvement of technology of red natural wines” (Baku, 2016), “Cognac technology” (Baku, 2016) , “Modern technology of table wines” (Baku, 2017), “Practicum on the subject of functional food technology” (Baku, 2017), Fruit and vegetable processing technology (Baku, 2017), “Technology of fruit and berry wines” (Baku, 2018) , “Biotechnology” (Baku, 2019) and others. Recommendations reflecting articles and innovations have been published and are being published in scientific publications of the Republic, CIS, Turkey, Portugal, Brazil, and many foreign countries.

The scientific achievements of the scientists of the department are widely used in production. The results of scientific research were presented at conferences and symposiums in Turkey, Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, France, Germany and other countries.

Recently, under the scientific guidance and advice of Professor H.K. Fataliyev, 10 doctors of philosophy and 1 doctor of sciences were trained at the department. At present, the department supervises the doctoral dissertation on 5 techniques. 3 semi-industrial facilities manufactured at the department have been successfully tested.

Employees of the department are participants of international and regional projects. Prof. HK Fataliyev is one of the winners of the tender held by the World Bank together with the State of Azerbaijan for the establishment of the Ganja Regional Advisory Center, where he worked to provide advice and information services to farmers. His recommendations and methodology are used in farming training.

At the same time, he participated in the project of the German Society for Technical Cooperation (GTZ) "Improving the quality of Azerbaijani wines", and in 2004 under this project, Prof. H.K. Fataliyev took part in the "intervits-interfruct" exhibition held in Stuttgart, Germany.
