In 1938, for the first time in Kazakhstan, has been created the base chair «General metallurgy» for preparation of engineers-metallurgists at Kazakh mountain-metallurgical institute. First head of a chair was docent, c.t.s. S.N. Baraboshhin.
40 years which have worked on a chair took part in organisation of the first metallurgical laboratories the graduates from Ural polytechnical institute Silina Julia Konstantinovna (teacher of a chair) and Degtyareva Ekaterina Dmitrievna (lab. assistant). For training have been invited Dr.Sci.Tech., professors: Sazhin Victor Sergeevich (member-correspondent of АS, Ukraine), Icakova Rufina Afanaceyvna (member-correspondent of АS, Kazakhstan), Tseft Andrian Lukjanovich (academician of АS, Kazakhstan), Putilin Jury Mikhailovich (director of the institute of mineral raw materials in Kazakhstan and institute of artificial minerals in Russia).
On a chair was created the disciplines subsequently on which has been organized new specialties to Kazakhstan. So, on the basis of discipline "Metallurgy" «Metallurgical science and thermal processing of metals» has been organized the speciality, on the basis of a course «Automation of metallurgical processes» has appeared the speciality with the same name.
For chair 1980, year became significant became significant when in connection with preparation of students by a new specialty for Kazakhstan «Physical and chemical researches of metallurgical processes» was accepted the decision on changing of the status of a chair: it became letting out. The big contribution for formation of educational process was brought by professors: Romanov L.G. – the honoured worker of science РК, V. A. Luganov, S.B. Bajysbekov, A.O. Bajkonurova, A.A. Abzhapparov, senior lecturers: T.K. Ishanov, M. E. Turkuv, J.A. Nikiforov, O. V Vasilevsky, E.N. Sazhin, G. I. Edilbayeva, G. A. Usoltseva; engineers: N.S. Barabanov, L.G. Butovchenko, L.G. Snezhko, T.G. Podoluva, M. V. Vasilenko, etc. At preset on chair work time on a chair 3 Dr.Sci.Tech. in a part of PPS, 8 Cand.Tech.Sci., 2 PhD doctor, 1 master – the assistant; 5 engineers help with maintenance of a sustainable development of educational process.
From the date of the basis of a chair managers were:
• 1938 1941 – Cand.Tech.Sci., senior lecturer Baraboshkin S.N.;
• 1941 1956 – professor A.A. Bullakh; • 1956 – 1961– d.t.s., professor K.V. Sushkov;

• 2003 – 2005 – d.t.s., professor U.K. Mahambetova;
• 2005 – 2016. – d.t.s., professor A.O. Bajkonurova.
• 2016 – for the present day Ass. professor, PhD, candidate of technical science Chepushtanova T.A.
Mission and strategy
The mission of the department "Metallurgical processes, heat engineering and technology of special materials" and educational programs specialty "Metallurgy" is the formation of the students in the learning process of social and personal skills and professional competencies that enable graduates to successfully meet the production-technological, organizational, managerial, research and design tasks in the field of metallurgy and promote their sustainable demand in the labor market, as well as compliance with international standards of education; provision of companies by highly qualified specialists in the field of industry, specializing in the implementation of promising basic and applied research and development and introduction of modern production processes, providing high quality products with minimal effort.
Strategy of "Metallurgical processes, heat engineering and technology of special materials" department is teaching and resource provision of basic educational programs of undergraduate, graduate, doctoral studies in areas of Metallurgy. Improving the efficiency of functioning of scientific schools of the department of technology of refractory raw materials processing and extraction and sorption technologies in metallurgy. Provide training and formation of specialists, including highly qualified scientific, satisfying the requirements of modern scientific and technological progress; performance of scientific research and technological development, ensuring the creation of new and modernization of existing production facilities, the introduction of modern high-tech-extension of international cooperation in the educational process and scientific research, including attracting foreign students, teachers and researchers; participate in the formation of an innovative system of Kazakhstan and creation of small high-tech businesses.
