About the Department

Department “Civil Engineering”

The department “Civil Engineering” was founded on the basis of the Trust “Kazmetallurgstroy” in 1969 and was called “Industrial and civil engineering”. In 1969-1974 Ph.D., Associate Professor Ustinov B.S. was head of the department. Then in 1970, the Faculty of Engineering and Construction was established and since then department became an independent unit of the Factory-High Technical Institute on the base of KMC.
In 1975, due to the quantity growth of students, the department was divided into two independent ones: “Architecture and technology of construction” and “Building constructions” moreover, in 1980 the department “Structural mechanics” was established. All three departments had graduating students and trained more than 200 young specialists per year in industrial and civil engineering.
In 1996, the all forenamed departments were merged into one and named “Industrial and civil engineering” besides, in 1999 the “Ecology” section was added to it.
Since 2007, the section “Ecology” was detached and until 2010 the department was called “Industrial and Civil Engineering”. Caused by joining in 2010 the department of “Industrial Heat and Power Engineering and Metallurgical Heat Engineering” to the Department of “Civil Engineering” it was called as a Department of “Civil and Heat Power Engineering” until 2017, headed by Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Bazarov Baurzhan Anurkhanovich.
Since 2001, the department opened magistracy by specialty “Civil Engineering”.
Over 40 years of its existence, the department has trained more than 4000 civil engineers, bachelors of construction, 700 bachelors of engineering and technology.
In 1997, for the first time in the Republic of Kazakhstan, the Kazakhstan National Geotechnical Association was created on the basis of the “Civil Engineering and Ecology” department, which included more than 90 specialists from different universities and organizations of the Republic of Kazakhstan and its currently functioning at ENU named after L.N. Gumilyov.
In 2001, on the basis of KSIU, a division of a Scientific Research Institute of Building Production (NIISP) was formed and headed by Doctor of technical Sciences, Professor Filatov A.V.
A great contribution to science was the creation of the dissertation council K14.31.05 (approved by the order of DANK of Kazakhstan dated February 26, 1998 No. 52-1zh) on the basis of the department for the advocacy of scientific theses in the specialty “Foundations and Basements”, with the chairman Doctor of Technical Sciences, professor Zhusupbekov A.Zh. From 1998 to 2001 scientific theses were advocated by 14 candidates, including citizens from Japan, Turkey and Cambodia.
Scientists of the department on the basis of scientific research wrote over 700 articles, including monographs, received more than 200 copyright certificates for inventions, including over 20 patents of the Republic of Kazakhstan and CIS countries.

Now on Construction and Power System chair carry out scientific and pedagogical work of 14 qualified teachers, including:

  • 2 professors, Dr.Sci.Tech.
  • 5 associate professors, Candidates of Technical Sciences;
  • 3 senior teachers with length of service in higher education institution over 20 years;
  • 4 teachers of masters of construction having extent.

On chair training in a magistracy in “Construction” is conducted.

The chair maintains relations and creatively cooperates with civil engineering firms and the organizations of the Republic of Kazakhstan and Russia.

Annually students of chair participate in the International review – competition of the best degree projects of architectural, construction and design specialties. Works of our students win within 5 years the first places in the nominations “Construction” and “Industrial and civil engineering.



Lessons in specialized audience.

 At the Karaganda State Industrial University preparation on the day, correspondence forms of education, reduced – the college higher education institution, the second the highest in 050729 “Construction” is conducted.

Since 2001 at chair the magistracy in “Construction” is open.

The chair has the corresponding material, educational and methodical and laboratory bases. Research and educational laboratories are equipped with the latest devices for carrying out compression tests for 3-axis compression, devices for determination of durability of concrete, solution, a brick with digital counting and others according to State obligatory education standard  requirements.

The chair has contracts on the creative commonwealth with construction laboratories of Centermetallurgstroy LLP firm and JSC Karagandapromstroyproject, JSC Karagandagiiz.

The laboratory carries out almost full complex of tests of construction materials and the soil bases according to standards of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

At laboratories there is a computer class on 25 personal computers and other necessary office equipment.

In 2001 on the basis of KarSIU the division with the name “Scientific Research Institute of Construction Production” was formed. The director  is the Dr.Sci.Tech. professor Filatov A.V.
