About the Department

The history of the formation of the department “Technological machines and transport” is closely connected with the history of the previously existing departments “Metallurgical machinery and equipment” (formerly “Mechanical equipment of metallurgical plants”) and “Mechanical equipment of industrial enterprises” (formerly “Construction and road machines”).

The department “Mechanical Equipment of Metallurgical Plants” (later “Metallurgical Machines and Equipment”) was founded in 1975 and the first graduates of mechanical engineers in the number of 16 persons were carried out. The first head of the department was PhD in Engineering sciences Krivobokov Vladimir Nikolayevich, who worked in this position until 1978. The department at different times was headed by Associate Professor Burdov Alexey Ivanovich (1978), PhD in Engineering sciences Ilkun Vladimir Ivanovich (1978-1983, 2000-2001); PhD in Engineering sciences Atamanov Viktor Fedorovich (1983-1996); Grand PhD in Engineering sciences Ichev Boris Ruskovich (1996-1998 gg.); PhD in Engineering sciences Kimanov Bolat Mazhitovich (1998-2000); PhD in Engineering sciences Kuznetsov Boris Sergeevich (2001-2005); PhD in Engineering sciences Olga Izmestieva (2005-2006).

In 1998, the Department of  Metallurgical Machines and Equipment was united with the Department of Mechanical Equipment of Industrial Enterprises (formerly “Construction and Road Machinery”), which was headed by Associate Professor Burdov Alexey Ivanovich, PhD in Engineering sciences Petin Yuri Petrovich, PhD in Engineering sciences Alexander Kryukov, PhD in Engineering sciences Popov Vladimir Grigorievich, PhD in Engineering sciences Vinnik Anatoly Fedorovich, PhD in Engineering sciences Werner Alexander Oskarovich, PhD in Engineering sciences Orynbasarov Amangeldy Satybaldievich.

As a result of the merger, the department began to train not only mechanics of metallurgical profile, but also for the transport branch of the construction industry. In connection with the expansion of the profile of training in 2008, the department changed its name and became known as the department “Technological machines and transport”. Since 2006 the department is headed by PhD in Engineering sciences Nogaev Kairosh Abilovich.

Currently, the department is located in three buildings of the university complex. There are 5 educational laboratories and 1 computer class at the department. In the educational process, 65 stands are involved.

Currently, the department provides training for bachelors in the following specialties:

  • “Transport, transport equipment and technology”
