Training of engineers on our specialty in the Kazakh Polytechnic Institute begins since 1963, when the specialty "Heat and ventilation" was established in the department construction. In 1980, the Almaty Architecture and Construction Institute was established on the basis of construction and architectural faculties. On the basis of specialities sanitary-technical faculty was established, where the specialty "Water supply and sewerage" was opened later.
In 2002, the Kazakh National Technical University named after KI Satpayev begins again training on specialties 430540 "Heat, ventilation and environmental protection"; 430640 "Water supply, sanitation and protection of water resources". Graduating department of "Engineering systems and Environment" was organized in 2003, and from 2008 begins training in the specialty of "Water resources and water use" in cooperation with the department of "Hydrogeology and Engineering Geology." In 2011, the department was renamed into "Engineering systems and networks."
In 2012, the department established and received a license for a new specialty 5B075200 - "Engineering systems and networks" in areas the water supply and sewerage, heat and ventilation. Currently, the department of "Engineering systems and networks" trains bachelors and masters in the field: 5B075200 "Engineering systems and networks», 5B072900 «Construction" specialty "Engineering systems and networks"; 5B080500 - «Water resources and water use".
The department has a large laboratory facilities to study and retain knowledge in the field of "Engineering systems and networks" and "Water resources and water use", there has been released a catalog of laboratory stands in the Kazakh, Russian and English languages.
The purpose of the specialty: Engineering systems of buildings and structures are the most important system of life of the population and other areas. Engineering systems create a comfortable living environment, providing heat, gas, water and sewage waste diversion. The microclimate of buildings and structures are one of the main sections of the science of construction and technology. Engineering systems provide protection of water resources and air basin. Saving energy is enshrined in the Resolution of the thermal protection of buildings, developed on the basis of the law on energy saving and the law on air emissions. Therefore all engineering systems of buildings should be designed and built. Against the backdrop of increased attention to the thermal protection of buildings under construction engineering systems are becoming increasingly important.
The main issue of training the specialists are directed to participate in the project work, as well as to perform the operation and installation of heating, ventilation and air conditioning, water supply, sewerage, heating, gas and boiler, as well as for the reconstruction of these systems.
Mission and Strategy
The mission of the department is to prepare generalists for their activities in the national economy of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
Training of specialists for the national economy include:
- Projects on heating, ventilation and air-conditioning, heating and gas supply systems, water supply and sewage systems, boiler plants, as well as reconstruction of engineering systems of buildings and structures;
- Producing activities on solving the problems of exploitation, repair and commissioning of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning, boiler plants, gas and district heating networks, water supply and sanitation;
- Administrative activity in the government construction departments, State Architectural Construction Committee and other state institutions and directly to industrial institutions and environment;
- Teaching at secondary vocational schools training for the construction industry.
The department has extensive international links with countries: CIS (Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Belarus, Azerbaijan) and other countries (Turkey, Serbia, Poland, Malaysia).
The department has 16 teaching staff: doctors, professors - 4, among them M. Myrzahmetov - academician, laureate of the State Prize; 7 Candidate of Sciences, academic professors and 3 assistants.
In recent years, the faculty of the department released 5 books, more than 30 textbooks and teaching materials. The department has 2 laureates of medal “The best teacher among universities of the Republic of Kazakhstan” (Myrzahmetov M. - Academician, Ph.D., Kasymbekov ZH.K.- professor, Ph.D.).
The head of the department "Engineering systems and networks" is a candidate of technical sciences, associate professor K. Alimov - a specialist with extensive experience of practical and scientific and educational activities.
