FACULTY OF PHYSICS AND MATHEMATICS
The Faculty of Physics and Mathematics is one of the oldest and largest faculties of the Institute. The faculty was founded in 1938 as one of the two main faculties of the Shymkent Teachers' Institute. Deans of the faculty were: SarsenbaevM.S. (1950-1960); Yerimbetov M.I. (1960-1965); Bektayev K.B. (1965-1968); Tleukabylov S.E. (1968-1971). In 1971 the faculty was divided into two faculties: the mathematical faculty was headed by Nurbaev U.N. (1971-1983), and the physical faculty was headed by Volochaev SM. (1971-1972), Mamaev L.I. (1972-1975) and Baytasov U.B. (1975-1983).
In 1983, these two faculties were merged into one and the dean of the faculty was appointed Nurbaev U.N. (1983-1989), then Mamaev L.I. (1989-1993). Between 1940 and 1993, about 6,000 full-time students and more than 3,000 correspondence students became graduates of the facultyon the specialties of physics and mathematics. Many graduates now occupy leading positions in public authoritiesand in schools, higher educational institutions of the region and the Republic.In particular, Doctor of Economic SciencesM.
