History of the Department

The Department of Computer Engineering and Programming traces its history back to the Department of Computer Engineering established at Pavlodar Industrial Institute in 1971 (later, S. Toraighyrov Pavlodar State University).

S. F. Vasilevskiy, Candidate of Engineering Sciences, Associate Professor, was the first Head of the Department. Later, the Department was headed by G. A. Zheltovskiy (Candidate of Engineering Sciences, Associate Professor), V.V. Naumov (Candidate of Engineering Sciences, Associate Professor), M. V. Titov (Candidate of Engineering Sciences, Associate Professor). O. G. Potapenko, Candidate of Engineering Sciences, Associate Professor, the member of the International Academy of Informatization, has been the Head of the Department since 1995.

The following academics made a significant contribution to the development of the Department: T. B. Potapova, R. Yu. Ishimtsev, K. A. Baymurzin, S. I. Derevyagin, N. M. Zaytseva, T. I. Tretyakova, etc.

All courses are taught by highly qualified academic staff having extensive experience in education, research and industry. The Department’s staff includes 2 Professors, 5 Candidates of Engineering Sciences, 4 Masters of Engineering and Technology. Top researchers and specialists from leading organizations and companies of the city and region are also regularly invited to deliver lectures and teach practical classes. The Department has four affiliates at KAZENERGOKABEL JSC, Unicode Company, ASUEP LLP, the Information-Analytical Center of Kazakhstan, which provide opportunities for students to cooperate closely with manufacturing specialists, to have professional internships and to be successfully employed.

Graduates of the Department are now successfully employed in a variety of organizations, companies and design institutions of the Republic of Kazakhstan, CIS and non-CIS countries. There is always high demand for them from largest national companies: KazTransOil, KEGOC JSC, Kazakhstan Temir Zholy SPE, Air Kazakhstan, Kazakh Telecom OJSC, Halyk Savings Bank of Kazakhstan OJSC, Aluminium of Kazakhstan OJSC, TNK Kazchrome JSC, etc.
