The main task of the ITT is the preparation of ICT specialists capable of:
– To have tools for computer support of engineering services, including software and hardware computing base;
– Provide engineering services, which have the character of highly intelligent scientific, technical and technological activities to develop complex technical systems.
Over the years of its existence, the department has produced more than 4000 competitive IT specialists, in demand both in Kazakhstan and in the near and far abroad.
Training at the department is conducted in Kazakh, English and Russian languages.
