Transport technology


The department "Transport Engineering" was organized in 1978 and is part of the Institute of Metallurgy and Industrial Engineering (IMiPI), Kazakh National Research Technical University named after K.I. Satpayev.

The department was founded because there was a demand for the technical specialists, universal mechanical engineers, as well as CAD–engineers. Nowadays, alumni of the department meet the demands faced by the industrialists; they are working in many sectors of the industry, as well as on the senior positions at the government institutions. Since the department was launched the high-level professionals have been prepared for the engineering, metallurgical, construction and other industries of the country by the specialty “Lifting and transporting, road building machines and equipment”.

Founding members of the early development of the department were: Prof. S.A. Dzhienkulov (the first head of the department, its founder) alumnus of the MSTU named after N.E. Bauman, now he is an academician of the International Academy of Transport of the Russian Federation, Prof. M.H. Sarguzhin, prof. B.T. Sazambaeva, academician of NAS RK, prof. N.T. Surashev, candidate of technical science Sh.D. Ahmetova, Prof. R.A. Torgayev, as well as professors and academics of MAT: R.N. Taukelev, R.A. Kabashev, associate professors: K.M. Toktybaev, M.H. Sarguzhin, B.T. Sazambaeva, V.E. Dzhundibaev, A.U. Kanahin and others. There are more than 16 doctoral and 30 master's theses have been defended at the Department.

First intake by a specialty 280340 – “Lifting and transport, construction and road machinery equipment” was carried out in 1988, and the first commencement was in 1993. In 1994 new specialties by the printing industry were launched, and later “Machinery and technology of printing production” department was allocated from the big “Lifting machinery and hydraulics” department. In 1999 training by the specialty 280140 - "Automobile manufacturing and Tractor construction" for the automobile and tractor engineering was launched.

Department “Machines and technologies of printing production” (M&TPP) was organized by the joint orders of the Minister of press and mass media of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the rector of the Kazakh National Technical University named after K.I. Satbayev № 165 dated may 16, 1994 with aim to train personnel for the publishing and printing complex of the country. The first head of the Department was a graduate of N.Eh. Bauman Ph.D., Professor Bolepbergen Ketebayuly Orazbayev. Since September 2011 M&TPP department is part of the Institute of industrial engineering named after A.Zh. Burkitbaev and is the only specialized Department in the Republic of Kazakhstan, training bachelors and masters of printing industry in full-time education in the state and Russian languages.

The Department found close ties with the Moscow state University of printing, Ural Federal University named after first President of Russia B.N. Yeltsin, Institute of Chemical Sciences named after A. Bekturov, as well as LLP "Polygraph Combine" Corporation "Atamura", RPBK "Dauir". On the basis of the last mentioned organization there was a branch of the Department with a classroom for conducting classes with students. In March 2011 the specialty "Polygraphy" successfully passed the international accreditation for a period of 5 years in the accreditation center "Association of engineering education of Russia" (Tomsk). In April 2011 by the efforts of M&TPP department KazNTU named after K.I. Satbaev joined the Association of polygraphists of Kazakhstan, and as well as International Association of printing universities with headquarters in Stuttgart (Germany) in June 2012. During it’s existence the Department has trained over thousands of professionals in the printing industry, which successfully work at enterprises of national significance, such as RPBK "Dauir", LLP "Polygraphkombinat", LLP "Intellservis", LLP "Leader offset", etc., and create their own businesses, developing small and medium printing enterprises in Kazakhstan. Since 2014, the Department is a member of the Association of printers, publishers and book distributors of the Republic of Kazakhstan. In 2017 M&TPP department was combined with the department of “Transport Engineering”. On the basis of the department "Transport Engineering" there is a section "Polygraphy", the tasks of which are not only the training of students in specialization, but also the development and examination of standard curricula, programs, all teaching materials for the specialty "Polygraphy".

Машеков Серик АкимовичThe entire biography of Serik Akimovich Mashekov is connected with scientific and practical work in the universities of Kazakhstan.

He graduated with honors from the technological faculty of the Karaganda Metallurgical Institute (KarMetI) in 1983. After graduating from this institute, he was started to work as an intern-researcher at the Moscow Institute of Steel and Alloys. In 1985, he enrolled in the full-time graduate school at the Moscow Institute of Steel and Alloys. While studying, in December 1988, he defended his standard doctorate thesis ahead of schedule.

Mashekov S.A. has been working in KarMetI since 1990 after graduating from the research degree.

He went from a teacher, a senior teacher and a senior lecturer to the head of the department "Theory and technology of metal forming" from 1991 to 1999.

S.А. Mashekov tirelessly investigated technology of forging and stamping of titanium alloys working at the Karaganda Metallurgical Institute.

He studied the technological processes of forging and stamping lead.

S.A.  Mashekov investigated the problems to which he devoted a significant part of his scientific activity: the study of technological methods of controlling the structure and the mechanical properties and accuracy of disks and blades made of titanium alloys.

The statement of the problem, the complex of theoretical problems, their practical solution at the Upper Salda Metallurgical Production Association formed the basis of the doctoral dissertation of "Creating, researching and introducing new technology of forging from titanium alloys with enhanced mechanical properties", defended in 1998 in the Ural State Technical University by the specialty - "Metal Forming".

Prof. Mashekov S.A. has published 4 monographs regarding the processing of titanium and aluminum alloys (1.Mashekov S.A., Omarov A.D., Smirnov V.K. Metallurgy of transport materials // Monograph.

The series of studies on the regularities of combined technological processes of hot deformation and heat treatment of steel made it possible to clarify and systematize the features of the formation of the phase composition of multi-purpose steels under various types of temperature - deformation effect on the metal in the sheet metal process flow.

The revealed patterns are the basis for new technologies of combined processes of hot plastic deformation and theoretical processing.

 The main classification feature of new technologies is not a sequence of technological operations, as was customary earlier, but a kind of phase transformation.

Studies have allowed it to allocate in new subgroups such new technological schemes for sheet metal processing as thermomechanical treatment with pearlite transformation, softening thermomechanical processing, controlled rolling of low-carbon steels and a number of others.

The materials of these long-term studies are summarized in monographs: 1. The technology of rolling production / S.А. Mashekov, I.I. Kuzminov, B.N. Absadykov, et al. / Almaty: Tetaprint Publishing House, 2007. 334 p.; 2. Mashekov S.A., Absadykov B.N. / Problems and prospects of rolling production // Almaty: Kazakh-British Technical University, 2012., 298 p.; 3. Mashekov S.A., Absadykov B.N. / Problems of steel structures and their solution by improving technologies and equipment // Almaty: Kazakh-British Technical University, 2011. 300 p.; 4. Multifunctional longitudinally wedge mill for rolling thin strips of steel and alloys / Mashekov S.A., Nurtazaev A.E., Mashekova A.S. et al. // Almaty: “Nur-Print”, 2018. 307 p.; 5. Technology of rolling thin strips on a multifunctional longitudinally wedge mill / Mashekov S.A., Tusupkalieva E.A., Mashekova A.S., et al. // Almaty: “Nur-Print”, 2018 324 p.; These monographs still retain the values ​​of the encyclopedia comprehensively covering the regularities of the formation of the structure of general-purpose steels for various types of temperature and deformation effects on the metal.

Working as the head of the department, he gradually deepens on the existing and creates new scientific directions and improves the educational and methodical activities of the team. Under the supervision of S.A. Mashekov the specialists of higher qualification defended the thesis, and now they have been working in different departments of the universities.
