Information Engineering in Economics

Faculty of Engineering & Information Technology

Major subjects for UNT: mathematics and physics


According to the research conducted by the International Data Corporation Agency, 60% of enterprises will have developed and begun the implementation of transition strategies to a digital economy by 2020. This means that highly qualified IT-specialists will be in demand in the labour market.

In the framework of the specialization «Information systems» three educational programmes have been started at KGU conforming to European standards:

  1. «Information Engineering in Economy»;
  2. «Telematics»;
  3. «Mobile computing».

KGU collaborates closely with leading universities in Germany including Schmalkalden University of Applied Sciences and Technical University of Applied Sciences Wildau. This cooperation ensures us a leading position on the market of IT-education in Kazakhstan.

We have created a strong faculty of scholars and practitioners, as well as a unique curriculum due to which the following is mastered by our students:

  • theoretical and practical basis of design, creation and development of computer information systems;
  • specific features of advanced IT and international standards;
  • basics of practical work in an IT field.

We are definitely proud of the fact that since the 7 October, 2013 KGU has been an official partner of Cisco and it is the first functioning Cisco Networking Academy in Kazakhstan. On the 17 April, 2014 KGU became an official partner of Oracle and Oracle Academy.

A Cisco certified laboratory, a computer equipment, and software of Cisco and Oracle have been used for the quality training of students. Our students have an additional advantage of having major subjects conducted by lecturers/professors from Germany.

Educational programme «Information engineering in economy»

The graduates of this program work on the design, implementation and technical support for computer information systems in different economic sectors. Information Engineering specialists control the whole lifecycle of computer information systems: from the very beginning to innovation in existing systems. In other words, we prepare the conductors of IT projects.




  • Business Informatics and law
  • Automation of financial activities
  • Communications and IT security
  • Organization and management of IT infrastructure
  • Applied systems modeling of economic processes
  • Web and mobile applications
  • Business and system analytics in IT projects


The possibilities of professional development of specialists in Information Engineering are practically unlimited — they are in demand in any industry where computer information systems are applied regardless the peculiarities of a particular business.
