In this regard, the working curricula for these specialties were revised to include new disciplines that correspond to current trends in the world.
In addition, in order to ensure a high-quality examination of the working curricula and the content of the educational program, the Rudny Industrial Institute signed an agreement with the Kazakhstan Association of IT Companies in 2018. This cooperation will bring the educational program in line with the requirements of modern industry IT technologies and provide training for specialists who can find IT solutions necessary for real sectors of the economy.
The involvement of employers in the professional training of young people is particularly active in the organization of monitoring of labor markets and educational services. This allows you to coordinate the needs, structure of professions and adjust the content of training to meet the requirements of the developing economy.
Students of the faculty have the opportunity not only to practice at the leading enterprises of the city and the region, but also during the educational process to meet with representatives of production at lectures and practical classes, which allows you to immediately be involved in production at the end of training, so the need for professional adaptation disappears. Since the 2018-2019 academic year, the Rudny Industrial Institute has organized lectures by the heads of the divisions of JSC «SSGPO».
Dual education, along with the optimal transfer of professional experience, allows you to establish your position in the production environment. Businesses benefit from new ideas and impulses coming from learners.
The Department of AISaS has 3 branches: «OVERSOFT» LLP, Rudny, «Ekofon» LLP, Kostanay, «Kazakhstan Service» LLP.
In the period from 2017-2020, three branches of the Department were created at the Department of EPaHPE:
- «Sarybay MES» JSC «KEGOC»;
- Rudny branch of «Arasan Firm» LLP;
- «RMZ MC» LLP.
Employees of the branches of the department participate in conducting training sessions, manage educational, industrial and pre-graduate practices, research work, course and diploma projects (works) of students; participate in the work of the SAC, act as reviewers of diploma projects. Within the framework of the branch of the department, internships of teachers of the RII at enterprises, on-site defense of theses are conducted
One of the additional advantages of studying at the Rudny Industrial Institute today is distance learning technologies.
Students have already appreciated the convenience and quality of university distance learning on the site of the MOOC RII. The platform provides access to educational resources, and also allows students to independently organize a convenient schedule for them to master the material.
Distance learning is carried out using information and communication technologies and telecommunications, with incomplete, indirect interaction between students and teachers. Distance learning technologies at the Rudny Industrial Institute are applied to students studying in reduced educational programs based on technical and professional, post-secondary and higher education.
In connection with the implementation of the State Program for the Development of Trilingualism, classes for students of specialties are conducted in three languages. The result of this is an increase in the level of language training of students, as a result of which they acquire the opportunity to participate in academic mobility programs not only within Kazakhstan, but also abroad.
Within the framework of the Memorandum of Mutual Cooperation between the Akimat of Kostanay region and ERG, the laboratory «Labor Protection and Industrial Safety» was created. The use of Microsoft software in the educational process made it possible to create the MICROSOFT IMAGINE ACADEMY at the Department of Automation, Information Systems and Security.
The management of the Rudny Industrial Institute pays great attention to the purchase of modern laboratory equipment and software systems. So from 2012-2021, the department of facultet purchased equipment worth more than 90 million tenge.
Thus, the Institute has significantly strengthened the practical aspect of the educational process by expanding the range of specializations of educational programs based on a scientifically based long-term forecast of the needs of modern labor markets and taking into account the Atlas of Future Professions. A modern material and technical base has been created, which allows students to acquire skills in working with modern equipment, to understand the essence of technological processes, and for university scientists to conduct research.
Scientists of the Institute are managers and performers of fundamental and applied research under the state order of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Kazakhstan, contractual topics and international research projects, managers of graduate works of undergraduates and doctoral students of PhD, authors of publications in rating scientific journals with a non-zero impact factor and publications indexed in international databases (Web of Knowledge, Thomson Reuters, Springer, Scopus, Elsevier, etc.).
Teachers of the departments actively introduce and use interactive methods of teaching students in the disciplines, which increases the degree of assimilation of the material. At the same time, interactive whiteboards, multimedia projectors are used, network and case technologies are introduced into the educational process.
In its prospects, the faculty sees the continuation of the development of educational and laboratory bases of departments, professional development by teachers, the development of international cooperation in the field of education, in particular, under the student exchange program with universities of near and far abroad.
Students of the faculty have completed internships in European countries within the framework of the International IAESTE Program. The Faculty accepts students from other countries in the above-mentioned specialties for internships. There is an internal academic mobility program between RII and other universities of the Republic of Kazakhstan. Students of the Faculty of EiIS go to study at universities in other regions, as well as students from universities of the Republic of Kazakhstan study at the departments of the faculty.
After completing their studies at the faculty, students undergo production and pre-graduate practice and are subsequently employed at the following enterprises: JSC «SSGPO», JSC «KEGOC», JSC «Rudnysokolovstroy», JSC «Kostanay Minerals», JSC «Basis-A», JSC «Kazchrom», JSC «Agromash Holding Kazakhstan», LLP «Rudny Vodokanal», JSC «Aluminum of Kazakhstan», LLP «Orken», «Karachaganak Petroleum Operating B. V.» and at other enterprises of Kazakhstan, the CIS countries and far abroad, confirming their theoretical and professional knowledge.
Over the years of the faculty’s existence, the departments have trained more than one thousand graduates. And we have a right to be proud of them. Our graduates work not only at the enterprises of our city, region and Republic, but also in the CIS countries and far abroad, confirming with their excellent work and professional growth the high level of training of specialists.
