HISTORY OF THE DEPARTMENT
The Department of «Automation, Telemechanics and Communications» was established in 1977 at the Alma-Ata Institute of Railway Transport Engineers (hereinafter – AIRT). The creation of the department was due to the need for specialists in the field of railway automation and telemechanics. The history of the department is a separate page in the annals of AIRT – KazATK – ALT.
The first head of the department was Ph.D., Associate Professor Glashchenkov G.A., a student of the professor of the Kharkiv Institute of Transport Engineers (KITE) Kotlyarenko N.F. Under his leadership, the department took the first steps in creating a material and technical base, in opening specialized laboratories.
In different years, the department was headed by Ph.D., associate professors Shamanov V.I., Duisembayeva Zh.K., Shensizbayev S.A., Omarov T.F., Ph.D., professors Nietalin Zh.N., Kadyrbekov S.O., Ph.D., professors Imandosova M.B., Bitteev Sh.B., Ph.D., associate Professor Suleimenova G.A., Ph.D., Shultz V.A., PhD, Toigozhinova A.Zh. who made a great contribution to the replenishment of the scientific, technical and pedagogical potential of the department, contributed to its further development and strengthening.
In November 2005, the Department of «Automation, Telemechanics and Communications» was renamed the Department of Automation and Control.
Currently, the department employs highly qualified teaching staff with rich pedagogical experience. Currently, the department is headed by PhD, Associate Professor of ALT Sansyzbay K.M.
Currently, the department trains highly qualified personnel in the following educational programs:
- 6B07120 – Automation and Control (Bachelor’s degree);
- 6B07140 – Cybersecurity of digital systems – innovative educational program (Bachelor’s degree);
