Institute of Metallurgy and Industrial Engineering


September 20, 1933. Sovnarkom of the USSR adopts a resolution on the organization in the capital of Kazakhstan Almaty Kazakh mining and metallurgical Institute (KazGMI) with the inclusion of the Semipalatinsk geological exploration Institute. The deed was issued on 27 September 1933. All three courses of the Semipalatinsk geological survey Institute, composed of 121 students and the entire material-technical base was transferred to Kazmmi. So the Kazakh mining and metallurgical Institute was formed — the first University of the Republic, the first forge of engineering personnel of Kazakhstan.

The first head of Institute was appointed mining engineer Amir Janulewicz Burkitbaev. A graduate of the Ural-Kazakhstan industrial Academy, he made a huge contribution to the formation and development of the Institute with his inexhaustible energy and dedication. The school year at the new Institute began on September 1, 1934. 145 students started their studies, primarily from among those who were transferred from Semipalatinsk. But in October-November 1934 a new set of freshmen joined the Institute.

In 1960 KazGMI was transformed into the Kazakh Polytechnic Institute in connection with the development of industrial production of the Republic and the expansion of the range of specialties of mining and metallurgical direction. By the time of the reorganization, the Institute was already training engineers in 12 specialties.

Deans in different years were: - I. the Liner, I. Z. Slutsky, S. A. Karamullin, H. N. Nurmagambetov (1964-1980 years), J. S. Sadykov (1981-1986 gg), B. J. abylgazina (1987-1993 years), A. K. Kubasov (1994-2008), B. S. Baimbetov (2008-2011), K. B. Rysbekov (2011-2015), Abisheva Z. S. (2016-2019.)В  2000 году горный и металлургический факультеты были объединены  в Горно-металлургический институт. В 2003 году ГМИ был реорганизован на Горный институт имени  О.А.Байконурова и Институт металлургии и полиграфии.  

In 2011, in order to concentrate the pedagogical and scientific potential of the University on the priority areas of development of science, technology and technology determined by the state, the University was restructured by the decision of the Academic Council Of the Kazakh national technical University named after K. I. Satpayev by order No. 421-p of 14.07.2011.

In July 2019, the Mining and metallurgical Institute was transformed into the Institute of Metallurgy and Industrial engineering.  Educational programs were developed with the participation of foreign partner universities, educational and scientific laboratory "Operation of technological machines and automation of industrial complexes"was organized. Its accreditation and certification are planned, laboratory equipment and research laboratory "Biogeotechnology of gold, uranium and polymetallic ores" which is engaged in development of innovative technologies for gold and uranium mining enterprises are purchased..

Since June 01, 2020, the Institute is headed by Yelemessov Kassym Koptleuevich, candidate of technical Sciences, associate Professor, corresponding Member of the National Academy of mining Sciences of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

In order to implement a structured educational program in the field of production, Assembly of equipment and transport, as well as to improve the quality of graduate training in this area, an order was issued for the University to merge the Department of "Technological machines and equipment" and "Transport equipment" into the Department of "Technological machines, transport and logistics" from June 1, 2020.

The structure of the institute includes 4 graduating departments, an Advisory Board, the Laboratory "Operation of Technological Machines and Automation of Industrial Complexes", the Council of Young Scientists of the Institute and the "Training Range of the Institute".

The Institute of Metallurgy and Industrial engineering trains students in 11 bachelor's degree programs, 13 master's degree programs, and 7 doctoral programs. The Institute trains bachelors, masters and PhD students in the state and Russian languages in the following educational programs: metallurgy and mineral processing; Operational and service engineering;Transport engineering; Engineering physics and materials science; Metallurgical engineering; mineral Processing; Automation and digitalization of metallurgical processes; materials Science  and technology of new materials; Digital engineering of machinery and equipment; Physics; Transport services; logistics (by industry);

Currently, the Institute has more than 965 full-time students, 100 undergraduates and 34 doctoral students.

Scientific and pedagogical work is conducted by 87 teachers, including 9 doctors and 34 candidates of science, 18 PhD doctors. The Institute has 27 educational and scientific laboratories.
