The Applied Chemistry Department today

From 2000 the Department existed a structural division of Al-Mashani Natural Science and Humanities Institute, in 2010 it became a department of Institute of High Technologies and Sustainable Development and finally in 2016 the Department functions as a part of the Institute of Chemical Engineering.

 

Department of Applied Chemistry provides fundamental training in chemical disciplines for the students of technical majors on regular daily education and including distance learning. Courses are held in Kazakh, Russian and for some majors in English.

 

The Department possesses a high research and pedagogical potential having 24 teachers including 4 Doctors of Science, 10 Candidates of Science and 5 Masters of Science and educational support staff of 6 people efficiently working on developing the Department. Laboratories of the Department are equipped with modern educational equipment of PHYWE manufactured in Germany, which is used to support laboratory works on physical, colloid and analytical chemistry. Learning support materials for the General chemistry laboratory include the educational virtual laboratory software. Under the guidance of staff of the Department, university students and pupils of Almaty and Almaty region are actively involved in annual National and International subject olympiads in chemistry.

 

Aims and objectives

As one of the leading structural units of the Kazakh National Research Technical University named after K.I. Satpayev on technical education, the Department of Applied Chemistry aims to train a new generation of specialists with technical education.

 

To achieve the corresponding objective it is required to perform following tasks:

- to provide fundamental training for the students to successfully solve scientific and engineering problems in their respective professional area;

- to develop students by providing conditions for scientific research, critical thinking and development of professionally-oriented skills;

- to prepare students for a successful career in academic, scientific, industrial organizations and educational institutions by developing their professional and ethical responsibility, the ability to learn independently and improve their qualifications throughout their lives.
