Mining and Metallurgical Faculty
The history of the development of the mining and metallurgical faculty is closely connected with the history of the formation of the Rudny Industrial Institute, which began in 1959. Over the years the existence of the Institute, MMF has made a huge contribution to the training of highly qualified specialists for the mining industry. Here are some milestones that characterize the main stages of its formation and development:
1959 – the first set was organized on a special basis: “Development of mineral deposits”, “Industrial and civil construction”, “Reinforced concrete constructions and building materials”;
1962 – the faculty consisted on an independent balance;
1964 – 1st graduation of civil engineers and mining engineers;
1968 – in order to improve the organization of the educational process, the faculty is divided into two faculties: construction and mining;
2002 – the Faculty of Civil Engineering after the joining of the departments “Mineral Extraction” and “Development of Mineral Deposits” was renamed as Construction and Technology;
2004 – the Faculty was renamed as Mining and Construction;
2012 – the Faculty was renamed as Mining and Metallurgical.
At various times, Kulikova GG, Kirov I.P., Pervushin N.G., Nazarov S.K., Zhanturin M.Zh., Osadchy V.I., Toyshybekov I.S. A.A., Kuzmin S.L. worked as faculty deans.

The faculty is staffed by highly qualified specialists, including Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Naizabekov A.B Candidate of Technical Sciences, Associate Professor Lezhnev S.N., Candidate of Technical Sciences Kuzmin S.L., Verin S.V., Fionin E.A., Candidate in Physics and Mathematics Sciences Shaldykova BA, Arepyeva S.V., Candidate of Political Sciences Tazhibaev R.H. In recent years, young masters came to work at the faculty department: Salko O.Yu., Iskakov R.Zh., Nurmukhambetova G.T., Askarova R.A., Kattygarin Zh.N. etc.
Training is conducted in the state and Russian languages. For college graduates it is provides an abbreviated form of education. The faculty has 46 groups. The total number of students is – 468, which 176 – have a grant.
The students are provided with 43 studying rooms, and 17 are laboratories. Computer rooms are equipped with the latest generation computers.
The special pride of the faculty is a laboratory for studying the properties of metals and rocks. It is equipped with an OLIMPUSVH-53M microscope and the SAPHIR 520 grinding and polishing machine for preparing thin sections for microscope studies. Students can review and study the structure of the metal and rock.
To determine the chemical composition of the metal and rock there is a ThermoNiton X-ray fluorescence spectrometer using a miniature X-ray tube technology and a solid-state detector. The high speed of multi-element analysis and at the same time the reliability and accuracy of the results obtained can significantly reduce the measurement time and save money, in most cases, refuse to use complex laboratory research methods. In addition, portability, ease of use and the ability to analyze samples of any kind of material, shape and size, as well as heated or vibrating objects, make the device ideally suited for working in production conditions and in field conditions.
In order to improve the quality of teaching, the Administration of the Rudny Industrial Institute acquired a modern laboratory stand from the concern FESTO, which is a recognized world leader in the creation of components of hydraulics, pneumatics and automation. The main feature and advantage of this laboratory is that it works according to the principle of the designer. So, the stand includes components that can be combined in various combinations. This principle activates the independent work of students, allows to evaluate the advantages of the aggregate-node principle of work of modern industry.
The geological museum, created and equipped with the Department of Metallurgy and Mining, collected rocks and minerals not only from the fields of Kazakhstan, but also from fields in many countries. Alexander Ivanovich Ivlev, a doctor of geological and mineralogical sciences who worked at the department, and Raisa Valentinovna Shitova, who worked at the department, played an important role in creating the museum.
In 2015, the Metal Rolling Laboratory was created, in which the SVP-08 industrial screw mill and a tubular furnace by the German company Nabertherm were installed. In the laboratory, students of the specialty Metallurgy conduct classes in the disciplines “Metal Forming”, “Rolling Production Technology” and carry out research projects of diploma projects.
To control the operation of the equipment, non-destructive testing equipment is currently being implemented in production, and graduates of the institute conduct research on ultrasonic flaw detectors and a vibration meter from the American company Fluke.
A modern Fluke-810 vibration meter for the diagnosis of mechanical equipment is capable of instantly producing measurement results. It monitors unscheduled failures in equipment operation, prevention of preventing similar problems and solving priority tasks during repairs, maintenance and periodic inspections. With the help of unique technologies and capabilities of the device, it is possible to perform diagnostics of mechanical equipment very quickly and efficiently.
In honor of the 50th anniversary of our university, JSC SSGPO donated to the department of M&M a class equipped with modern geodetic and surveying devices used in the training of specialists – surveyors.
Since 2015, computer technologies have been widely introduced into the learning process at the MMF specialties, which make it possible to see the complex processes occurring during smelting, become familiar with the design of mining equipment, make a virtual assembly and disassembly of equipment.
To simulate the research conducted in the departments there are software products:
– SimufactForming13.0 – computer simulation system for calculating the processes of metal deformation in the processes of forging and die forging when designing die tooling. SimufactForming allows you to optimize temperature and speed, taking into account the stress-strain state, the conditions of the processes, to design the optimal technology. This is facilitated by the adequacy of the models of the technological process, as well as an accurate description of the rheological behavior of the metal under conditions of deformation. From forging to rolling, from sheet metal to titanium – all tools are available in SimforForming for effective modeling and calculation, regardless of process temperature, equipment used or materials processed.
