One of the main aims and objectives of the department is to develop scientific research in the field of solid mechanics and its implementation to the learning process. The results of activity should be introduced to training of the future holders of a bachelor s degree conducted in two languages for different KSTU specialties on general and basic subjects such as: theoretical mechanics, strength of materials, mechanics, applied mechanics, Engineering Mechanics 1, 2, 3, descriptive geometry and engineering graphics.

Thus, the combination of scientific and educational activities can significantly improve the quality of training. During the process of studying, students learn advanced methods of calculation of structural elements and machine parts for strength, rigidity and stability, and learn the basics of construction machines and mechanisms to ensure their reliable operation, at the same time while achieving economic efficiency in material consumption.

In order to master the complex and time-consuming process of calculation a computer technology is widely used that enables to automate all phases of the calculation, including the issues of optimal design.

Knowledge obtained by students at “Mechanics” department is the fundamental basis for the study of special and relevant disciplines, as well as the foundation for stage process of highest category specialists training by Master s degree and PhD – doctoral programs.

One of the prospects of the department is the teaching staff involvement in the development and publication of complex scientific and educational materials (monographs, textbooks, manuals, guidelines, manuals, scientific articles), gaining both in Kazakhstan and in the Near Abroad.
