Accepting students on specialty "Technique and technology of mineral deposits exploration" began in 1958. Initially, preparation and graduation of Mining Engineers carried out by Methods and techniques of mineral deposits exploration department, which was headed by corresponding member of the AS of KazSSR, doctor of geological-mineralogical sciences G.L. Kushev.

In 1966, in order to meet the growing needs of Kazakhstan in engineering staff for oil industry on the basis of three departments, the independent oil department was organized. One of these forming departments was the department «Technology and techniques of well drilling" (TTWD), which is stand out from department "Methods and technique of mineral deposits exploration."

On TTWD department has been assigned the task of preparing mining engineers, drillers for oil industry and geological services by two specialties:

-Drilling of oil and gas wells;

-Technology and technique of mineral deposits exploration.
