Department History

In 2001, the Department of computer systems and applied mathematics was established on the basis of the Department of higher mathematics. This change was due to the opening of a new specialty 370140 "Computer systems of information processing and management". The head of the Department was candidate of technical Sciences S.G.Yeslyamov.

Since July 1, 2005 the Department was divided into two departments - "Higher mathematics" and "Computer systems". S.K. Atanov, candidate of technical Sciences was appointed as a head of the Department of Computer Systems.

In the 2007-2008 academic year, the Department was headed by Ph. D. Baideldinov M. U., 2008-2010 - PhD. Turebayeva R.D., 2011-2012 - PhD., associate Professor ZhantlesovZh., 2012-2013 PhD Suleimenova R.Z., 2013-2015 PhD., ZhantlesovZh.

On February 26, 2010 by the decision of the Academic Council of the University the Department was renamed as "Computer engineering and information systems".

In 2015, the Department was divided into two departments– "Information systems" and "Computer engineering and software". A candidate of Physical and Mathematical Sciences Baymukhanov Z.K.was appointed as a head of the Information Systems Department

In 2016, a doctor of philosophy PhD Ismailova A. A.was appointed as a head of the Department "Information systems"
