The curriculum preparation
The curriculum is aimed at a new level of competitive specialists in modern methods of exploration and extraction of methane for its subsequent use in the industry.
It includes new disciplines that reflect the innovative technology in the field of exploration and production of methane from coal seams.
Working curricula of RUE on the agreement with the School of Applied Sciences Berlin (VSHPN), Kuzbass State Technical University (KuzGTU), the Russian State Oil and Gas named after IM University Gubkin.
Modular educational program on agreement with the School of Applied Sciences Berlin (VSHPN), Kuzbass State Technical University (KuzGTU), Russian State University of Oil and Gas named after IM Gubkin.
Training in the field of methane in the department of development of mineral deposits (RMPI), which is part of the mining faculty of Karaganda State Technical University. The department has a certain historical traditions, rich experience of training, a powerful material and technical base and highly qualified human resources.
Currently, faculty training in the direction of the Department of methane presented: 3rd doctor of technical sciences, professors, 8 th Ph.D., associate professor and the 1st PhD doctor.
The training program is developed on the basis of the experience rating of universities: Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas named after IM Gubkin (Russia), planned to carry out preparation of masters inviting professors of foreign scholars on the subject:
Oleg Jusko. PhD, Institute of Petroleum Engineering, Heriot-Watt University (Edinburgh, UK)
Mikhail Orlov – Ph.D., AIM TRIZ Technical University of Berlin (Germany)
Wexler Julian Abramovich – doctor of technical sciences, geomechanics project manager of the company «MARCO systemanalys und Entwicklung GmbH» (Germany)
This graduate training will be carried out on the basis of modern innovative technologies and methodologies.
The training “Exploration and production of methane from coal seams technology” within GPIIR-2 foreign scientists are willing to read a special discipline with an innovative emphasis on English and Russian languages in the field of methane, and also planned an internship abroad through internships and research.
For high-quality training of masters is supposed to improve the qualifications of teaching staff of the University in the foreign university. In 2015, Professor TK Isabek I attended a seminar Engineering Education for a Resilient Society (Italy), Drizhd NA attended a seminar “Prospects of development of modern technologies and development of unconventional hydrocarbon resources” (Moscow, Russia)
Educational and material base
The main scientific base of the department is – Laboratory of engineering profile “Integrated development of mineral raw material resources” in the direction of activities “Research of geomechanical condition of rock”, which is equipped with the latest equipment, devices and equipment.
Department in 2011 on a specialty “Mining” was won a grant for an international project Tempus T.E.R.S.I.D. “Technical education for the conservation of resources for the development of the industry”, which is funded by the European Commission. The project was developed and implemented in the educational process of new graduate training module on the subject “Resource-saving technologies in underground mining of mineral deposits”.
The department has 10 substantive equipped classrooms, laboratories «Physics of rocks” and “solid state management” training ground of the current modern mining equipment, auxiliary facilities with total area of 700 m2.
The production base of the department.
The department collaborates with major mining companies:
- JSC “ArcelorMittal Temirtau”;
- Karaganda Scientific-Research Institute of Industrial Safety (KarNIIPB);
- LLP “Sary-Arka special coke”;
- LLP «Bapy Mining»;
- LLP “Chrome-T”;
- TOO “Nedra-Balkhash”;
These enterprises are conducted field trips, performed research work.
5. Research work to improve the quality of the Master’s
The department paid great attention to scientific work carried out on state budgetary and contractual issues. The total annual amount of funding research projects of the department more than 30 million tenge for the last 2 years. In this case the contractual customers are large industrial enterprises of the mining complex, the members of Innovative Educational Consortium “Corporate University”: UD JSC “ArcelorMittal Temirtau” JSC, “Zhairem”, JSC “Shubarkolkomir”, “Ekibastuz Coal” LLP.
3 threads carried on the state budget theme of “Science Fund”, MES, MINT RK.
Scientific researches of the department within the framework of the implementation of economic agreements and grant funding
6. Experience of training and the introduction of scientific developments
The results of research are being introduced in the lecture courses, practical and laboratory classes of undergraduates. Annually published monographs, textbooks and guidelines, which co-authored several scientific publications are the masters of the department and the Corporate University staff.
