Chairman of the Supreme Assembly of the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic Vasif Talibov congratulated the staff of Nakhchivan State University on the commissioning of the new building of the Faculty of Foreign Languages and said: Nakhchivan State University has undergone a great development. In 1967, it started operating as the Nakhchivan branch of the Azerbaijan Pedagogical Institute, and in 1972, the Pedagogical Institute was established in Nakhchivan by the decision of our national leader Heydar Aliyev.In 1990, the institute became Nakhchivan State University and continued its activity as a state university with a pedagogical profile. The main development of Nakhchivan State University dates back to the years of independence. During those years, the university functioned effectively, achieved achievements that have a special place in Azerbaijani education, and changed from a pedagogical university to a classical university.
The Chairman of the Supreme Assembly said: Nakhchivan State University is the first classical university in Azerbaijan, which was established in accordance with the requirements of the time. The Constitution of the Republic of Azerbaijan affirms the status of Nakhchivan as an autonomous state. Therefore, there was a need for personnel in the state bodies of the autonomous republic, as well as in other areas.At that time, the specialties of Nakhchivan State University were not enough to provide staffing. Although the creation of new specialties became necessary, there was a shortage of teachers. Today, most of the staff of Nakhchivan State University are graduates of the university. If at that time there were 9-10 specialties at the university, today there are 63 bachelor’s degrees and 76 master’s degrees.If at that time the total number of students studying at the university was less than 1,200, today only more than a thousand foreign students study. All this was done with great effort. The staff of Nakhchivan State University has a special role in achieving these achievements.
The Chairman of the Supreme Assembly thanked those who contributed to the achievements and said: “Once Nakhchivan State University was in the second place among Azerbaijani universities, today the university is in the first place among the country’s universities.”
“Young people with higher education are the future builders of the country. The future of the country will be the same no matter how they are brought up, educated and brought up, ”the Speaker of the Supreme Assembly said. In the past, there were 3 or 4 faculties in one building. Today, however, each faculty has its own building. New laboratories and research centers have been established. Modern infrastructure and quality education have increased the interest of local students as well as foreign students in the university. Today, Nakhchivan State University is ahead in terms of the number of foreign students studying in Azerbaijani universities.
The Chairman of the Supreme Assembly said: 7 out of 63 specialties taught at the University are at the Faculty of Foreign Languages, which was opened today. The creation of these specialties was the goal ahead. But there was a shortage of teachers. At that time, teachers from other countries were invited to teach. Today, the teachers of the Faculty of Foreign Languages of Nakhchivan State University are local specialists.In his address to the people of Azerbaijan on the occasion of the 21st century, the third millennium, our national leader Heydar Aliyev said, “Although our location is the East, our direction must be to the West.” This means that even if we are from the East, we must go to the West and master European education. To do this, it is need to know the language.The main purpose of establishing this faculty was to teach foreign languages to young people and prepare them to study at the world’s leading universities. Today, more than 300 young people from Nakhchivan study abroad. They will return as good specialists and use their knowledge for the development of our country. In the past, there were more than 1,400 graduates of the Faculty of Foreign Languages. Today, they work in our country and abroad, contribute to the development of our country. 12 electronic boards, 7 projectors, 112 computers connected to the Internet are put into operation at the faculty. This is more than the new technologies used in some universities.
The Chairman of the Supreme Assembly said: We looked at the path of Nakhchivan State University in a short time. Although this is short in terms of time, the work done takes a long time. At a difficult time for the country, the first work in the autonomous republic began at Nakhchivan State University. A new building was built, faculties were established and necessary equipment was provided.Today we see its fruits. This university has a special role in staffing the autonomous republic. The university must continue to operate successfully. The main task of the team is to organize the training properly, to teach foreign languages to young people and to train them as specialists. The wise say that if you want to know the future of a country, look at its youth. The future will be the same as the level of youth education in our country today.
On the same day, the Chairman of the Supreme Assembly gave instructions on the design of the university’s rector’s building and the provision of “University” television broadcasting in the autonomous republic.
