"The first priority is the accelerated technological modernization of the economy.We must cultivate new industries that are created using digital technologies.This is an important complex task.It is necessary to develop such promising industries as 3D-printing, online trading, mobile banking, digital services, including healthcare and education, and others. "
"... it is important to ensure the development of communications, widespread access to fiber-optic infrastructure.The development of the digital industry will provide an impetus to all other industries. "
"An important condition for the emergence of new industries is the support of innovations and their rapid introduction into production.I entrust the Government to create an international technopark of IT startups on the basis of one of the EXPO-2017 facilities ...”
"We also need to develop our scientific and innovative potential on the basis of universities, Nazarbayev University and PIT" Alatau ".
"Along with this, special attention will be paid to the quality of the higher education system.It is necessary to strengthen control and requirements with respect to the staffing of higher education institutions, their level of material and technical support and educational programs. "
"On the issue of a phased transition to a trilingual education.The Kazakh language will retain its dominant position.Much attention will be paid to its further development.At the same time, today English is the language of new technologies, new industries, and a new economy.Currently, 90% of the information is created in the world in English.Every two years its volume is doubled.Without mastering English, Kazakhstan will not achieve nationwide progress. "
In accordance with the Missive of the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, in the EKSU named after Amanzholov plans to continue work on improving the IT infrastructure of the university and on the phased implementation of the SMART-University project.
It is necessary to pay special attention to the resource support (fiber, domain closed corporate network, electronic document management, access system, video surveillance system, educational portal).
In addition, it is planned to create a training and production IT laboratory and the Center for Robotics and Automation.And in the main buildings of the university (№1, №2, №7, №9) it is planned to create one model audience equipped with the most up-to-date educational multimedia equipment (smart TV, Wi-Fi, tablet, etc.).
In addition, the project of the IOC-platform of the leading lecturers of the EKSU named after Amanzholov, the library will be equipped with modern digital equipment, the Center for Electronic Journalism will be established.
As for proposals for the development of SRW, SRWS and SRDCW in accordance with the President's Message, at present the university has an instrumental and analytical park that includes modern servers and a 3D printer.This equipment allows you to conduct research on the development of new types of industry with the use of digital technologies - 3D-printing and digital services.
On the basis of NNLKP it is planned to develop a new direction - computer modeling of various physical and chemical processes (digital services);on the existing 3D-printer will be developed new scientific directions.
In the CRISIS, a catalog of Start-Up projects of students, undergraduates and young scientists is created to participate in NURINTECH contests, etc. The national youth competition of innovative projects NURINTECH is conducted with the aim of attracting Kazakhstani youth to scientific and innovative activities.In 2017, the prize fund "NURINTECH" will be doubled.

The research on the study of the material composition of man-made waste (blast furnace slag and dust from electrostatic precipitators) of the enterprise Aktobe ferroalloy plant.
Within the framework of the diploma and master's projects, the possibility of incorporating these production wastes into the technology of creating new materials for environmental catalysis and the construction industry was worked out.The development of this direction is planned in the form of a start-up project.The issue of deepening the complex processing of raw materials can be developed with the use of the facility available at the UNIC "Ecology" for the processing of arsenic-containing waste of the gold recovery plant in the village of Bakyrchik.
A memorandum of cooperation has been prepared with a private firm to commission a test stand in Building №7 and conduct a test smelting process to obtain a rough metal.The subsequent cooperation is planned jointly with the Bakyrchik mine.
