History of the Faculty of Economy and Construction
In the 80s of the 20th century, the leadership of the Rudnensky Industrial Institute repeatedly raised the issue of opening economic specialties before the Ministry of Higher Education of the Kazakh SSR. But the Ministry of Higher Education each time found a reason for refusing the request of the institute. Favorable conditions for resolving this issue were created in the early 90s with the acquisition of Kazakhstan’s sovereignty: the process of reforming the higher education system of the Republic of Kazakhstan began.
In the fall of 1991, the Department of Economics, Organization and Production Management of the RII performed the calculation of the needs of economists in the Kostanay region. With this calculation, the Rector’s office appealed to the akim of Kostanay region with a request to send a request to the Ministry of Higher Education of the Republic of Kazakhstan to open economic specialties in the RII. In 1992, the training of economists in the region was conducted only for the village at the Kostanay Agricultural Institute. And the Ministry of Higher Education of the Republic of Kazakhstan allowed the admission of 100 full-time students and 50 part-time students in the specialty “Economics and Management (by industry)”. In 1993, 100 full-time students and 50 part-time students were re-admitted.
On September 1, 1993, the rector of the RII, I. S. Akhmetov, issued an order on the formation of the Faculty of Economics as part of two courses consisting of 10 groups.
The dean of the faculty was Timofey Ilyich Levkovets, who had extensive experience in the organization of the educational process and worked at that time for more than ten years as the Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Construction for academic Work. The faculty included the following departments: Economics, Organization and Production Management (Head of the Department – Doctor of Economics, Professor Mikhailov A. A.); Economic Theory and Law (Head of the Department – Ph. D., Associate Professor Goloshchekov O. V.); Higher Mathematics (Head of the Department-Ph. D., Associate Professor Peshkichev Yu. A.); Physical Education (Head of the Department-Senior lecturer Ivanova L. V.); department of Languages (Head of the department – N. Y. Shayakhmetov).
Since 1994, the Department of EOIUP, in order to improve the efficiency and quality of the educational process, was reorganized, and 2 independent graduate departments were formed on its basis: economics and Construction Management (Head of the Department, Doctor of Economics Mikhailov A. A.) and Economics and Management in Industry and Infrastructure (Head of the department – Candidate of Economics Politov A. A.).
Nine-tenths of the success of economic reform depended on the level and quality of economic education. Therefore, the faculty was assigned the task of training new intellectual personnel with market thinking for promising business structures. The solution of this problem was complicated by the fact that the Republic of Kazakhstan had not yet developed standard curricula and standard programs. This work was assigned to universities. A commission consisting of Levkovets T. I., Goloshchekov O. V. and Mikhailov A. A. was created to develop curricula and work programs. Among other difficulties, the personnel problem was also relevant. Teachers of the department had to prepare completely new “market” disciplines: “Fundamentals of market Economy”, “Management”, “Marketing”, etc.
The Institute’s library was annually replenished with economic journals published in Kazakhstan and Russia. Theoretical seminars on market economy issues were held at the departments. KIMEP teachers conducted seminars. To teach economic disciplines, specialists of enterprises and organizations with extensive experience in practical work were invited to the departments. Nizhnik M. Yu., Akmalova O. A., Ponomareva O. G. and others.
From 1995 to 2005, the dean of the faculty was appointed TurezhanovSeitkaliUrazovich, Candidate of Economic Sciences. In 1997, the Department “Mathematical Methods and Modeling” was introduced into the faculty, which was headed by Irina S. Klimenko, PhD. On the eve of the new century, there was a need to form a staff to train specialists in the field of studying and applying computer technology. As a result of the work done by the rector of the RII, Professor I. S. Akhmetov and the departments, the task of training specialists of the new formation was successfully solved.
In 1999, by the order of the Rector, the Department of Mathematical Methods and Modeling was renamed the Department of Information Systems and Technologies, and was attached to the Faculty of Economics. Mathematical modeling entered a new important stage of its development, taking its place in the structures of the information society. The methodology of mathematical modeling has developed, covering all new areas-from the development of technical systems and their management to the analysis of the most complex economic and social processes. The activity of the department is focused on the training of system analysts who have a solid basis of computer knowledge and are freely oriented in a specific applied field of human activity.
Since that time, the faculty was renamed the “Faculty of Economics and Information Systems”. In 2005, NurtayOrazalievichMoldashov, a graduate of the Kazakh State University named after S. M. Kirov, was appointed Dean of the Faculty of Economics and Information Systems. He has been working at the Rudnensky Industrial Institute since 1995.
The most important event of 2005-2010 was the defense of PhD theses: head of the Department of ISiTZarubin M. Yu., head of the Department of EcRakhimovZ. R., head of the Department of ETiPLukmanova M. B., as well as senior teachers of the Department of ISiTStatsenkol.G. and Obukhova O. N.
In 2012, by order of the Rector of the RII, Professor A. B. Naizabekov, the Faculty of Economics and Information Systems was liquidated and the Faculty of Economics and Construction was established on its basis, which included the following departments: the Department of Economics, the Department of Management and Marketing, the Department of Construction and Construction Materials Science.
In 2013, the structure of the Faculty was optimized, the Faculty of Economics and Construction included 2 departments: the Department of Economics and Management and the Department of Construction and Construction Materials Science.
From 2013 to 2020, the Dean of the Faculty of Economics and Construction was Olga Kadnikova, Candidate of Technical Sciences. Deputy Dean for educational and educational work of the ball Candidate of Physical and Mathematical Sciences ShaldykovaBagitAbitovna.
In September 2017, MedetOmirzakuly, Master of Technical Sciences, became the Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Economics and Construction for the UIVR.
In June 2020, Olga AdolfovnaAkmalova, who has extensive experience and headed the Correspondence Faculty of the RII from 2000 to 2012, was appointed Dean of the Faculty.
The faculty currently consists of two departments: – Department of Economics and Management-acting Head of the Department Master SapanovaRamilyaKamilyevna, the department trains bachelors in educational programs: “Economics”; “Management”; – Department of Construction and Construction Materials Science-Head of the Department, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Miryuk O. A., the department trains bachelors in educational programs: “Construction”; “Production of building materials, products and structures”; “Design”; “Technology and construction of light industry products”.
One of the main directions in the work of the dean’s office is educational work. It is coordinated from 2021 by the Deputy Dean for Educational Activity, Ph.D. Abutalieva A.A. The task of educational work is to hold mass events, patriotic education of young people, explain to students the policy of the state and individual work with students.
