History of Zhezkazgan Baikonurov University

The development of non-ferrous metallurgy in Central Kazakhstan, the need for industrial development of deposits in the Zhezkazgan region, the commissioning of mines, plants and factories sharply outlined the problem of training personnel. In 1961, on the basis of the order of the Minister of Higher and Secondary Specialized Education of the Kazakh SSR, an evening general technical faculty was opened on the basis of the evening preparatory courses of the Karaganda Polytechnic Institute. Thus, the first center of higher education appeared in the region. 100 students were accepted for training in the specialties "Power supply of industrial enterprises" and "Industrial and civil construction". At the origins of the formation of the faculty was a prominent scientist, academician of the National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Hero of Socialist Labor, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor, Rector of KarPI Saginov A.S.

In 1973, also on the basis of the order of the Minister of Higher and Secondary Specialized Education of the Kazakh SSR, a full-time department was opened at the faculty. New specialties were opened, the number of students was growing. In 1977, the Zhezkazgan General Technical Faculty was transformed into a branch of the Karaganda Order of the Red Banner of Labor of the Polytechnic Institute. The opening of the branch was a significant event not only for Zhezkazgan, but for the entire Central Kazakhstan. Local authorities paid great attention to the university, provided assistance and comprehensive support in strengthening the material and technical base, strengthening human resources. New departments were created, scientists-teachers, candidates of sciences were invited to work.
