DESPITE a very young age—the University was founded in 2001, it consistently takes the top positions in the Kazakhstan national ranking of higher education institutions. 
KazETU provides education in the fields of engineering, technology, economics, and agriculture. The administration of the University consider the priority of technical majors to be a crucial factor ensuring a new level of development of Kazakhstan’s industry and economy. 

According to surveys conducted by the Independent Kazakh Agency for Quality Assurance in Education (IQAA), employers assess KazETU’s graduates as highly skilled young professionals; therefore, manufacturing companies interested in young promising human recourses readily cooperate with the University.

It is not by chance that the University focuses on engineering education. As to Bakhytzhan T. Zhumagulov, Director of the National Engineering Academy of the Republic of Kazakhstan and a prominent mathematician, nowadays the key government programs are aimed at facilitating the innovative industrial development of the country. For this purpose hundreds of new enterprises have been established; approaches to commercialization of research outcomes and technologies shaping a system fundamentally new for the republic are under development. The academician believes that all these will enhance the prestige of engineering professions. Engineering majors are usually more frequently funded from the educational grants.
