Nazarbayev University School of Mining and Geosciences (the School) was established in 2016, and currently runs programs in mining engineering, petroleum engineering and geoscience at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
The mission of the School is to educate tomorrow’s earth science leaders for Kazakhstan, the region and the world.
The school aims at expanding knowledge and technology through teaching and research with the vision to be recognized by our peers as a national and international leader in earth science education and research. We will apply knowledge and technology to benefit society domestically and internationally by extracting the earth natural resources in a safe, economic and environmentally responsible manner. The School partners with local and international universities and companies, including Colorado School of Mines in the USA.
Bachelor of Science in Geology
Geoscientists are responsible for finding and evaluating mineral deposits, energy sources as well as exploitation and sustainable use of groundwater. You use your intimate knowledge of the earth’s surface to make educated guesses about the probable locations of natural resources
Bachelor of Science in Mining engineering
Mining engineers are responsible for the planning, design, and operation of a mine to extract natural resources. They are involved in every stage of the mining cycle
Bachelor of Science in Petroleum Engineering
Petroleum engineers are responsible for producing hydrocarbon resources from oil and gas reservoirs. They are capable of addressing and solving important technological challenges, which will ultimately lead to energy security and socio-economic success
master of Science in Mining
The program is designed to establish advanced skills and a detailed knowledge base at the graduate level for individuals working in academia, industry or research settings in Kazakhstan or throughout the world
Master of Science in Petroleum Engineering
The program designed to provide students with a scientific background in hydrocarbon exploration, reservoir management, productions, and skills in the practical aspects of petroleum engineering
PhD in Mining Engineering
The PhD program in Mining Engineering is designed to provide advanced skills and a sophisticated knowledge base at the expert level for individuals planning a career in academic, industry and research settings in any of the subfields of the Mining Engineering discipline
PhD in Petroleum Engineering
The program is designed to provide advanced skills and a sophisticated knowledge base and focuses on the enhancement of Petroleum Engineering knowledge by advanced courses and development of research skills at high level
