History of department

The department of chemistry, department of general physics and mathematics, were created first. The organizer of department of general physics and mathematics was N.Uffelman. The first teachers brought in a large contribution to creation of department: А.P.Salmina, I.D.Brudin, L.N.Кushirinskya, I.М.Kirova.

From 1961 the department of physics moved away from the department of higher mathematics and became an independent department.  Gandrbur N. carried out the duties of department head. Physics was taught then on 5 faculties: mechanizations agricultural, soil, agronomical, economic and zootechnic.

From 1965 to 1970 the candidate of engineering sciences Brudin I.D headed the department of physics. A department of physics was in the building of agronomical faculty, occupying 3 audiences, equipped for mechanics, electricity and optics. 12 teachers and 2 laboratory assistants worked in department structure. After opening of new faculties of electrification and veterinary load increased on a department.

From 1970 to 1981 the department of physics was managed by L.N.Кushirinskya.  Experienced teachers Bloshinskya А.В worked together with her., Kirov I.М., Bisalieva Е.М., Коshеrbaev К.А., Nurahmetova J.К. had a large contribution to scientifically methodical work of department.  L.N.Кushirinskya and Bisaliev Е.М. were engaged in advanced study, and were competitors for an associate professor Vibe К.G. In this period department structure was filled up by young teachers: Мjsnicova L.А., Surgutkov Е., Оmarkulov К.А., Аkpenova B.Т., Ramasanova R.А.

From 1982 to 2000 with small interruptions, the department was headed by Candidate of physicist and mathematical of sciences, associate professor of Аbeldina Zh.К.


1963 год                                                                      1990 год

At the beginning the department of physics was within the faculty of electrification agricultural, after 1985 it was included in engineering-pedagogical faculty.

The first head of the chemistry department (1957-1963) was candidate of chemical sciences, associate professor Lasarev Anatoliy Ivanovich.

In 1964 the department was divided into two: the department of organic and biological chemistry and department of general chemistry. The department of general chemistry in 1967 was renamed to the department of inorganic and analytical chemistry. Over the years this department was headed by Еpifanova Dilemma Fedorovna, Gneti Stanislav Andreevich, Banaeva Ljudmila Valentinovna, Vershinina Clavdia Timofeevna.

The department of bioorganic chemistry belonged to the zootechnic faculty. Over the years it was headed by Sergeev А. (1968-1973), Gerashenko(1974-1978), Rebrikova Irene Ivanovna (1979-1996).

Large optimization happened in 1997. Two departments of general chemistry and biochemistry were originally incorporated, and then they were added to the department of physics.

From 2000 to 2008 Head of Department was a  candidate of chemical sciences, associate professor of physics  Мukashova А.K.

Мустафина Зинаида Адамбаевна

From 2008 to 2021 Head of Department was  a candidate of pedagogical sciences, associate professor Аlimkulova Elmira.

From 2021 to date the department is headed by a candidate of chemistry, associate professor Ibatayev Zh. A.
