History

The origins of the faculty of education go back to the 50-ies, when on the basis of the Kazakh mining and metallurgical Institute and then of the Kazakh Polytechnic Institute. Lenin trained professionals oldest and necessary for the country of profession – Builder. During the long years of its history, the faculty of construction made a great contribution to training of highly qualified civil engineers for Kazakhstan. Here are some of the stages of its formation and development:
 
 1957 - organized the first set on a specialty "Industrial and civil building" in Kazakh mining and metallurgical Institute.
 1959 - organized the first Department of "Construction" under the leadership of B. S. Zharmagambetov
 1961 -established civil engineering faculty, and in 1964 the faculty was opened correspondence Department.
• 1962  - the first graduation of civil engineers.
Diploma projects of A. T. Aubakirova and Y. I. Nemchinov was recognized as exemplary. These graduates later became scientists, doctors of technical Sciences. Diploma at the "excellent" defended 18 people, including prominent scientists, teachers and Industrialists – T. J. Akberdin, Sabalakov M. M., M. A. Alimbaev, A. A. Bespaev, S. A. Tatygulov, V. P. Korolkov, etc.
• 1963  - in the construction Department opened a specialty "heat and gas supply and ventilation".
At this time the faculty became one of the leading in KazPTI. In the first year of its existence, the faculty took the second place in the competition of Amateur performances "Spring at the Polytechnic". At this time, organized by the "Theatre of variety miniatures builders" (under the guidance of S. R. Bukeikhanov), which six months later became the basis of the Institute of Theatre of variety miniatures polytechnics. Many times the builders became Champions of the games in the Kazakh Polytechnic Institute.
• 1980 education of the Alma-ATA architecture and construction Institute
 1988 – 1990  opened two new specialties: "Economics and organization of construction", and "Lifting-transport, building road machines and equipment".
 1992 Almaty Architectural Construction Institute was transformed into KazGASA – Kazakh State Architectural Construction Academy.
• 1995 – 1997 ггopened a specialty "Urban construction and management", "Mechanization and automation of construction", "Protection in emergencies".
2001 when preserved the abbreviation of architecture and civil engineering, Academy of State becomes the Head and is called Kazakh leading Academy of architecture and Construction.
2011  KazGASA loses its legal independence in the form of Campus KazGASA is part of an International educational Corporation.
Today, the faculty is an innovative educational, scientific and industrial complex that serves as a basic information, design and expert center for construction, transport construction and housing, contributes to the preservation of architectural and construction heritage and ensuring the quality of the environment, educates technical intelligentsia, patriots of the country, morally and morally responsible to society and the state.
We are focused on the development of science and technology; continuous improvement of the educational process; new educational and information technologies in the educational process; ensuring continuity between different levels of education.
The strong teaching staff of the university has always successfully coped with the tasks set by time. It is difficult to overestimate the importance of research activities of our scientists in the field of civil and industrial construction. We can be proud of our colleagues ' research in mechanics, geotechnics, earthquake-resistant construction and other scientific fields. Today, the faculty employs prominent scientists Kussainov A. A., Besimbayev E. T., Abakanov T. D., Khomyakov V. A. and young creative researchers-graduates of the University Sadyrov R. K., Bryantsev A. A., Taubaldieva A. S., Gumenyuk V. V. and others.
Being initially technical, our university was considered a forge of highly qualified engineering personnel, who were in demand in the construction industry of the country and abroad. With the emergence and development of new areas of study, today the university has become even more competitive and meets all the challenges of the time. Scientists, teachers and students of KazGASA always strive for new achievements.
