Department of Technological Machines and Equipment

The history of the department's creation begins back in 1937, when the department of Mine Transport was organized in connection with the need to study special disciplines at the Kazakh Mining and Metallurgical Institute. Professor Andrey Nikolaevich Kulibaba, a graduate of the Yekaterinoslav (Dnepropetrovsk) Mining Institute, was appointed the first head of the department. In different periods, the department was called - "Mining transport", "Mining mechanics and mining transport", "Industrial transport", "Electrification and automation of mining industry" and "Transport and mining machines" was appointed Head of the department. In different years, the department was headed by K. T. Associate Professor Kartashev Alexander Nikolaevich, Candidate of Technical Sciences, Associate Professor Spitsyn Alexander Dmitrievich, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Dzhienkulov Sergazy Akhmetovich, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Filimonov Alexey Timofeevich, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Krupnik Leonid Andreevich, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Taukelev Renat Nurekelevich, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Stolpovskikh Ivan Nikitovich, Ph.D., Associate Professor Iskakov Bolat Iskakovich.

In 1959, for the first time in Kazakhstan and Central Asia, a set of students for the specialty "Mechanical equipment of metallurgical plants" was organized at the Metallurgical Faculty of the V. I. Lenin Kazakh Polytechnic Institute. In 1962, the Department of "Mechanical Equipment of metallurgical plants" was organized, and in 1989 it was renamed the Department of "Metallurgical Machines and Equipment". The first head of the department was the laureate of the USSR State Prize, Ph.D., Associate Professor Kunitsin Nikolai Mikhailovich.   At various times, the department was headed by: Ph.D., Professor Nysanbai Gabdulla Nysanbayuly, Ph.D., Associate Professor Dosumov Kubegen Baydauletovich, Ph.D., Professor Davilbekov Nariman Khalbekovich, Ph.D., Associate Professor Beisenov Baurzhan Sakkouly, Ph.D., Professor Mashekov Serik Akimovich.

In 1986, the Department of Machines and Equipment of Oil and gas fields was organized." The department trained mechanical engineers for the oil and gas industry. The first head of the department was Oleg Nikolaevich Samsonov, Ph.D., Associate Professor. In different years, the department was headed by Candidate of Technical Sciences, Associate Professor Albert Akhmedovich Girfanov, Candidate of Technical Sciences Anatoly Solovyov, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Makhambet Kuatbekov, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor. Dusaliev Kayyrgali Mukashevich, Ph.D., Associate Professor Myrzakhmetov Beibit Abikenovich.

As a result of the merger of the departments "Mining machines and Equipment", "Metallurgical machines and equipment", "Machines and equipment of oil and gas fields" in 2016, the department "Technological Machines and Equipment" was formed. The head of the department is PhD, Professor Yelemessov Kasym Koptleuyevich.
