A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) has been formally established between TWI and Azerbaijan State Oil and Industry University, and French-Azerbaijani University. During the signing ceremony, Vazeh Asgarov, Acting Rector of Azerbaijan State Oil and Industry University (ASOIU), emphasized the significance of the MOU, highlighting its potential impact on engineering practices in the country. Tat-Hean Gan, Group Director of TWI, joined the event remotely and underscored the importance of the memorandum, acknowledging its value in fostering collaboration.

The French-Azerbaijani University (UFAZ) under the Azerbaijan State Oil and Industry University is a unique ongoing project initiated by the Presidents of Azerbaijan and France back in 2014. Functioning as of September 2016, the university conducts student admission based on 4 technical specializations.

From the French side, the project includes a consortium of French Universities directed by the University of Strasbourg (Unistra). As for the Azerbaijani side, the project is led by Azerbaijan State Oil and Industry University (ASOIU) on the basis of a close cooperation with the Ministry of Education of Azerbaijan.

Founded under ASOIU, the university provides its graduates with the diplomas of ASOIU and the University of Strasbourg. Thus, without going overseas, the students will be able to obtain the diploma of ASOIU and Unistra, one of the most ancient universities in France.

UFAZ firstly seeks for Azerbaijani students with a strong scientific background, with basic English knowledge, who have just graduated from high school and have successfully completed the exam of the State Examination Center, as well as the UFAZ recruitment exam organized by Strasbourg University in Baku.
