Robotics and Engineering Tools of Automation

Department history

Department of "Robotics and technical tools of automation" of the A. Burkitbaev Institute of Industrial Automation and Digitalization dates back to 1991., when, as part of the Faculty of Automation and Control Systems, the Department of “Robotic Systems and Complexes” was organized to train system engineers in the specialty “Robotic Systems and Complexes”. The training of engineers in this specialty began in 1988. In 2001, the Department of Mechatronics and Robotics was organized. Then, in June 2002, as a result of the merger of the departments "Mechatronics and Robotics" and "Electronics and Computing Equipment", the Department "Electronics, Mechatronics and Robotics" was created, and in 2007 it was renamed and is now called "Robotics and technical tools of automation ".

The founder of the department is the famous scientist-teacher, Professor Ivanov K.S.

In the period 2001-2013 Professor Sholanov K.S. headed the department.

From September 2013 to the present, the head of the department is Professor Ozhikenov K.A.


Goals and objectives of the department

The goal of the department is to carry out educational activities based on improving the scientific and pedagogical qualifications of teachers, introducing modern educational technologies of teaching, constantly providing its consumers with education, services that meet international educational standards.


- creation of the necessary conditions for obtaining high-quality education in the chosen specialty, aimed at the formation, development and professional formation of an individual on the basis of national and universal values, achievements of science and practice;

- introduction and effective use of new technologies in training, contributing to the rapid adaptation of vocational education to the changing needs of the labor market and helping each student to maximize their personal potential;

- development of the personnel potential of the department, improving the scientific and pedagogical qualifications of the teaching staff of the department, strengthening the image of the department.

The department "Robotics and technical tools of automation" is one of the largest graduating departments of K.I. Satpayev KazNRTU, which prepares competitive specialists for high-tech sectors of the country's economy in a three-tier education system:

At all levels of training, teaching is conducted by highly qualified teaching staff.



The department has numerous scientific and educational contacts in the CIS countries and international contacts in non-CIS countries, which are constantly developing and expanding. The department is a member of large international projects:

- "JST Sakura Science Program" funded by Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST);

- "Applied curricula in space exploration and intelligent robotic systems / APPLE" "Applied curriculum on space exploration and intelligent robotic systems", based on the European Union program Erasmus +.

Students and teaching staff of the department, taking an active part in joint educational programs in the framework of the above international projects, are trained and trained in leading universities in the world.


Research work

On the basis of the department, research work is carried out in several areas, including:

- development and creation of biomedical equipment and technologies;

- development of equipment and technologies in agriculture;

- development and creation of metering and control devices.

There is a student scientific club "Make a robot yourself" and a club "Robotics". The main goal of scientific policy: the formation of a contingent of well-trained scientific personnel, and the leading function of higher education is the task of accumulating, developing and disseminating knowledge. The goals and objectives of scientific policy and higher education are intertwined. These goals will be achieved when scientific research becomes an integral part of university education.
