EKU named after S. Amanzholov. S. Amanzholov was visited by Vice Minister of Science and Higher Education of the Republic of Kazakhstan Dinara Shcheglova. According to her, the main purpose of the visit to the East Kazakhstan Oblast is to study and analyze the work of scientists in the region to solve and prejudice hydroproblems.

During the visit, Vice-Minister familiarized herself with research projects in the field of water security and water resources. In particular, “Assessment of the risk of destruction of hydraulic structures of water and energy facilities of the Upper-Irtysh HPP cascade EKR”, implemented by EKU professor, hydroecologist Anatoly Chursin.
The project involves the development of technologies for early detection of risk situations and their consequences in geoecology.

Also, researcher of the NNLCP Tlek Kuanyshbekov presented the project “Production of composite filtering materials for the purification of water bodies”, aimed at solving the urgent world problem – poor quality of fresh water.

-We plan to set up production of filtering composite sorbents based on biopolymers, ceramic materials, carbon materials modified with graphite oxide with assembly into cartridges, as well as manufacturing of housings on the basis of the university. Our final product can be adapted in large enterprises and residential buildings”, – noted the scientist.

In addition, Irina Rovnyakova, Vice-Rector for Strategic Development and International Cooperation, spoke about the unique educational program of the alma mater.

-In order to solve the problem of lack of personnel in the water management system, we have developed an innovative specialty “Hydroecology, Management and Transboundary Water Security”. At present, 14 people are studying at this specialty. Four of them under the state educational grant,” said EKU Vice-Rector.

Dinara Shcheglova appreciated the contribution of the university’s researchers to the solution of the urgent state problem. According to her, many developments of EKU scientists will be included in the Government report.
