Dean’s message

Dear applicants and visitors!

It is indeed a great pleasure to welcome you to the web pages of the KBTU Center of Chemical Engineering. Let me tell you a bit about our scientific Center, what we do and how we can help you if you are interested in one of our degree programs and specialties in chemical engineering. Study at the Center of Chemical Engineering provides the student new knowledge, opportunities to experiment and learn and explore the world of science. Our degrees lead graduates to successful lives and careers as scientists, specialists and scholars.

Since its inception, the Center of Chemical Engineering has been successfully conducting research and educational activities and has trained more than 500 chemical technologists.

  • Our Bachelor's program is recognized as the best in Kazakhstan for the last 8 years by the Independent Kazakhstan Agency for Quality Assurance in Education (IQAA) in its annual ratings.

  • We have international accreditation (IMAREST, Royal Engineering Council, UK)

  • Our programs are licensed by the international agency BTEC.

  • Our highly qualified and experienced local and foreign professors are among the best in Kazakhstan.

  • The best performing students of the Center of Chemical Engineering get opportunities to go abroad under student mobility and exchange programs and study or complete internships at leading universities and research centers in Korea (Sejong University), Malaysia (University Sains Malaysia), Switzerland (Federal Polytechnic School of Lausanne), Spain (San Jorge University) and several other universities.


We have also launched dual education system, which combines deep theoretical knowledge with real practical activities, that is, a student is trained both in classrooms and at work. Our partners give this opportunity to our students at oil refineries of Kazakhstan (Atyrau Refinery, Petrochemical Plant, PetroKazakhstan), Romania (RomPetrol). This strengthens the role of the employer in the learning process and contributes to the maximum relevance of our graduates.

Student life means not only lectures, exams, but also numerous contests, intellectual games, olympiads, sports and hiking, playing KVN, and of course, the student’s club of chemical technologists (SKHT).

Not much time has passed since the formation of the NOCS, but we have achieved significant success. And the most important is our graduates who successfully work in large national and foreign companies: KazMunaiGas, TengizShevroil, NCOC, Petrofac (UAE), Atyrau Oil Refining, Schlumberger, Karachagan Petroleum Operating , Medherant (British Pharmaceutical Company), as well as continuing education in the magistracy and doctoral studies of the best universities in the world: Warwick University (United Kingdom), Tokyo Institute of Technology (Japan), KTH Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden), etc.

All those who believe in their strength and intellect, make the most ambitious plans and want to be in demand in the field of chemical engineering, we invite you to join us.

I wish you well-being, success in school, perseverance in achieving the goal and just good luck!


Professor Djamansarieva Kalykyz Utemisovna,
