International Cooperation

The department of «Development of mineral deposits»


As part of the Erasmus+ program, an agreement was concluded between the Zhytomyr State Technological University (ZhSTU) and the Karaganda Technical University named after Abylkas Saginov. As part of the teaching staff program, the department of RMPI KarTU named after A. Saginov will develop a set of disciplines for the joint educational module “Eco-Mining Engineering”.

Project “Master Program in Eco-Mining Engineering and Innovative Natural Recourses Management” (“Master Program in Eco-Mining and Innovative Natural Resource Management”)

The goal of the program is to improve the efficiency and environmental sustainability of mining operations through collaboration between partners and universities to train the next generation of specialists in the field of environmental, economic and management achievements in the field of natural resource extraction and processing. It aims to develop the interdisciplinary openness of future experts, the ability to systematically and deeply understand technological problems, using tools for modeling and assessing potential environmental risks, mitigating them in our rapidly developing world.

The Erasmus+ project will be created in response to current sustainability challenges and market needs. The project supports the transfer of the latest knowledge and best practices developed in the Erasmus+ countries – Germany, Spain and Turkey, in the field of sustainable environmental mining engineering, to other non-Erasmus+ countries – Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, taking into account all the challenges that require modern technological, economic and environmental standards and trends of the European Union countries (for example, the European Green Deal, Industry 4.0, etc.).

It is intended to develop an EU-based master’s program focused on the integration of EU best practices and approaches in the field of Eco-Mining and innovative management of natural resources and their implementation in universities not associated with the Erasmus+ Program; develop educational materials and create laboratories “Eco-Mining and innovative management of natural resources” for students in 7 universities not associated with the Erasmus+ Program; launch a collaborative virtual e-learning Platform; provide pilot training for master’s students in the program “Eco-Mining and Innovative Management of Natural Resources” and advanced training of experts.

Target groups: Potential university applicants (master’s students), teachers and staff, representatives of industry and non-governmental organizations, government agencies, employers, graduates.

The Department of Mineral Deposit Development welcomed students from the Technische Hochschule Georg Agricola

From May 16 to 26, 2023, the Department of Mineral Development hosted students from the Technische Hochschule Georg Agricola in Bochum, Germany, as part of the Summer School.

Since 2022, business and friendly relations in the field of science and education have been established between Karaganda Technical University named after Abylkas Saginov and Technische Hochschule Georg Agricola.

Summer schools can usually include an intensive academic and rich cultural programme. This is a great opportunity to gain new educational experience, meet peers from other countries and see the world.

The summer school “Current problems in the field of mining” was implemented by the international educational program DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) for 10 students of the Technische Hochschule Georg Agricola under the guidance of Professor Frank Otto and his graduate student Alex Rudek.

As part of the summer school, foreign guests and students received information about the university as a whole, the Mining Department, the university museum, the geological museum, the methane energy laboratory, the center for advanced technologies in mining, and the mining site.

The summer school program was attended by professors and teachers of the Mining Department: Imashev A.Zh., Bakhtibaev N.B., Demin V.F., Zhumabekova A.E., Ivadilinova D.T., Zakharov A.M. , doctoral student Sapinov G.K.

The summer school also included a practical course in mining. Over the course of 2 weeks, German students made 3 excursions to the mine named after. Kuzembaev, mine named after. Kostenko and the mine named after Lenin, owned by the Coal Department of ArcelorMittal Temirtau JSC, as well as the Nurkazgan mine of Kazakhmys Corporation LLP.
