Satbayev University gained the first place among the universities of the country in terms of funds won on a competitive basis for conducting research projects (7,467 million KZT for 3 years). The amount is 1.74 times more than it was in 2015 and indicates the high scientific, technical and research potential of the university. More than 70% of the 3,900 employees of SU and its subsidiaries and affiliates are involved in research and development activities.
At its inception and during the initial stages of its institution, the benchmark for the university was in its capacity to train specialists in geological exploration, mining of deposits and the industrial application of mined minerals. While this was appropriate when the economy of Kazakhstan was resource-based and heavily dependent on mining, the current focus is on Research and Advanced development for Digital Kazakhstan, reflecting present-day realities. Two aspects of the institution that have been strengthened are real applied projects and improvement of the quality of education, which stays apace with worldwide trends. T\The trends such as digitalization and the increasing importance of the English language are likely to have a permanent impact in many fields besides education. The rector of Satbayev University, I. Beisembetov, acknowledged these points and spoke about them at the meeting with the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, N. Nazarbayev, on February 5th.
