History of Electrical Power Engineering Faculty of Noncommercial JSC "Almaty University of Power Engineering and Telecommunications" begun in 1960. Graduation department "Electrification of industrial enterprises" was established in the Kazakh Polytechnic Institute. Based on this department two new graduation departments "Power supply of industrial enterprises" and "Thermal power plants" were opened in 1961. In 1975, Almaty Energy Institute was created on the ground of departments "Power supply of industrial enterprises" and "Thermal power plants", where the Electrical Power Engineering Faculty was formed.
During 40 years, Electrical Power Engineering Faculty educated and graduated over 9000 highly skilled specialists in electrical power field.
Graduates of Electrical Power Engineering Faculty work and hold manage positions in large backbone companies such as JSC KEGOC (National System Operator), JSC "Samruk-Energo" (energy asset management holding), JSC "Kazakhstan Temir Zholy", JSC "KazTransOil", LLP "TengizChevroil", JSC " AlatauZharykKompaniyasy" (power distribution networks of Almaty c. and Almaty region), JSC "AlES" (Almaty power stations), JSC "Atyrau-Zharyk" (power distribution networks of Atyrau c. and Atyrau region), etc.
Education of bachelors in major 5B071800 “Electrical Power Engineering” since 2004.
Education of masters in major 6M071800 “Electrical Power Engineering” since 2008.
In 2010 two majors 5B081200 "Agriculture power supply" and 5B073100 "Vital Functions Safety and environmental protection" were opened. Education of Ph.Ds in major 6D071800 “Electrical Power Engineering” since 2014.
