5B070600 – Geology and exploration of mineral deposits

Undergraduate, apprenticeship – 4 years.. Academic degree of the Bachelor is awarded after graduating.
Science of Geology has direct relevance to the practical activity of human – the search, exploration and mining, exploration of the seas and outer space. The same geology gives deep theoretical knowledge of the origin and evolution of our planet, Earth’s internal structure and external areas of its relationship with the surrounding cosmic bodies.

Geologists are prepared by the following areas: geology and exploration of metallic minerals, geology and exploration of oil and gas, coal, building material, Mining geology, hydrogeology –is the study of groundwater in order to further use for drinking water service, industrial use, agriculture, and also as a raw material in the mud and resort treatment, engineering geology – the use of soil as the foundation of the foundations of buildings, roads, railways, bridges, as a surrounding for construction of underground facilities and tunnels.

Training of specialists is provided by highly skilled and experienced teachers. The high professionalism of the teaching staff, good physical infrastructure allow to prepare engineering staff ,who own the latest computer technology, understand processes deeply in the Earth’s crust that can explore mineral deposits.

After reviewing the entire cycle of Geological Sciences, an expert geologist will be able to:
1. To carry out geological survey and geological mapping
2.To conduct search and exploration MPI
3. To predict the geological features of deposits and to identify recommendations for the rational development of
4. To engage with scientific research in the field of studying the Earth planet and other celestial bodies.

Graduates of the department work as a chief geologist, geologists, experts in the state supervision department by quality of raw, in mining enterprises, metallurgical industry, power energetics, managers, researchers, teachers of universities, etc.

Graduates of the department are employed in enterprises and companies, such as ZAO “Center-geolsemka” Zhairemskiy GOK, JSC “Kazakhmys”, Coal Department of JSC “Arselormitall Temirtau”, OJSC “Azimut Energy Services”, JSC “Geol Login Service”, in branches of the corporation “Becker Hyuz Service International Inc. “.

5B070700 – Mining

Modern society is inconceivable without consuming vast quantities of minerals. Every year, billions of tons of ferrous and nonferrous metals, construction materials (gravel, crushed stone, sand), coolants (coal, oil, gas) are extracted from the earth. More than 90% of energy produced from the mineral raw materials and engineering activity to its development and use is one of the most prestigious and promising.

No state can remain independent and civilized, without a developed industry. Material production can not exist without the raw materials and raw materials – is a mineral deposit, the problems of developing graduates who are engaged in this profession. On the effectiveness of their work depends largely on the future of Kazakhstan and its place in world civilization.

Mining, has long been called “rock art”, is associated with a long tradition and requires creativity and dedication. This profession is courageous and brave. All fields – oil, coal, ore – with time running out and formed a new, man-made deposits that are already involved, and in the future will be increasingly involved in development. Students of “Mining” acquire skills and ability to conduct open pit and underground mining operations using advanced methods and means of mechanization, automation, master control methods and techniques of mining production, safety and environmental protection. Mining open pit – the most effective and current conditions – the most promising method for extraction of minerals. Deposits suitable for open method development in our country are many. This fact largely determines the demand for specialists of this profile. Mining professionals profile in our country is open boundless field of activity for many years. Occupies a special place in Mining Mine Surveying, which solves the specialized tasks in the exploration, design and development of mineral deposits, construction of tunnels, subways, dams, buildings and structures.
Being trained in this area, students gain knowledge about: – geology, mode of occurrence and the geometry of the deposit of mineral properties – methods of filming the Earth’s surface and mine workings, setting directions mining operations and quality control of their activities by using modern instruments (Laser roulettes, indicators, electronic theodolites, svetodalnomerov) – how to control the completeness of extraction of mineral resources and planning of mining operations – the processes of displacement of rocks and earth surface, measures for protection from the harmful effects of mining. Working with a new generation of devices requires the surveyor high-level computer training. During training students miners gain knowledge for the construction of mines, tunnels, subways, underground warehouses and liquid gas, and industrial structures on the surface of land, residential buildings and the social, cultural and residential destination. In addition to general engineering disciplines, students study principles of design, engineering and construction technology of underground objects and structures on the surface, the economy of mine construction, fundamentals of organization and management, issues of safety and the environment. Particular attention is paid to the study of theory and practice of the explosive case to give access to the blasting operations in underground and opencast mining.

Graduates of a specialty “Mining” can lead units mines, concentrators and other industrial enterprises, institutions. They demanded the enterprises of Karaganda coal basin, Zhezkazgan and East-Kazakhstan region, where the widely deployed new construction and reconstruction of existing mines for the extraction of copper, zinc, gold, etc. Graduates of this specialty are qualified Bachelor of Mining – erudite specialist with a wide range of general technical, humanitarian and economic and legal knowledge. Graduates can work in design and research organizations, as well as continue training in the profile (1,5 years) and science (2 years) Master’s degree.
