History of the department

     The department "Hydrogeology and geophysics" until 2005 was represented by two departments: "Hydrogeology and engineering geology" and "Geophysical methods of prospecting and exploration of mineral deposits"

    In September 2014, the 90th anniversary of the formation of the department "Hydrogeology and engineering geology" of TSTU was celebrated. In September 1924, on the initiative of Professor O.K. Lange organized the Department of Dynamic Geology in the Department of Geology of the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics of the CentralAsianStateUniversity. Since 1926 the department has started to be called "Hydrogeology and Dynamic Geology", and since 1930 it has become "Hydrogeology and Engineering Geology". In 1931, the department was transferred to the Central Asian Geological Prospecting Institute, later it was part of the Central Asian Industrial Institute. The chair was headed by leading scientists in the field of hydrogeology and engineering geology: Professor OK Lange, Assoc. M.A. Schmidt, prof. VL Dmitriev, Acad. G.A.Mavlyanov, Acad. A.N. Sultanhodjaev, associate professors M.Z. Nazarov, BA Akhmedov, NM Kayumova, professors K.P. Pulatov, Ya.S. Sadykov and A.D. Kayumov.

     In total, more than 5000 mining engineers of hydrogeologists are graduated from the department. To date, graduates of the department are protected more than 30 doctoral dissertations and more than 100 candidate dissertations. The pride of the department are the full members of the Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Uzbekistan, GAMavlyanov and A.N. Sultanhodjaev, a member of the Academy of Sciences of the RK, Hero of Social Labor A.Ahmedsafin, member of the Academy of Sciences of the RT PA Pankratov, member of corr. Academy of Sciences of Uzbekistan NA Kenaesarin, who 50-70th years of the last century carried out large works on the development of hydrogeological science and the development of engineering geological science in Central Asia.

      Among the graduates of the department, some showed organizational skills and held high leadership positions in the republic, such as Acad. GAMavlyanov, member of corr. NA Kenezarin, Kh.T. Tulaganov, V.G. Gafurov, N.N. Khodjibaev, MI Ismailov, IM Mirkhodzhiev, VAGeynets, AI Islamov, SM Kasimov and others.

      In the preparation of highly qualified specialists for the republic, the professor-teaching staff of the department made a great contribution: academician GAMavlyanov, professors VL Dmitriev, MZ Nazarov, E.V. Kadirov, K.P.Pulatov, M.Sh. . Shermatov, A.M. Khudaybergenov, Ya.S. Sadikov, Y. Irgashev, A.D. Kayumov; Associate professors: MA Shmidt, TI Arkhangelsky, DNKruglov, BAAkhmedov, RMMirzakhodzhaev, KVKernosova, M.U.Mirsaidova, N.M. Kayumova, A. A.A. Adilov, R.E.Eshbaev, O.Kasimov, A.Tukhtaev, I.Agzamova and others; Senior teachers T.V.Trifonova, OMGalkin, M.Turdybekov, R.B. Nabiev, D.K.Begimkulov, N.R. Normatov and others.

      The Department of Geophysical Methods of Prospecting and Exploration of Mineral Deposits was organized by the Government in 1944 as part of the Central Asian Industrial Institute. In the beginning was in charge of the chair of Assoc. PA Shekhtman, who contributed greatly to the formation of the department.

    The chair in different years was in charge: Assoc. AGKarelin (1946-1958), Assoc. BMUrazaev (1958-1960, later Prof. and Head of the Department of Geophysics, KazPI), Assoc. VVKuznetsov (1960-1963), Assoc. NF Shevchenko (1963-1973), Assoc. S. Kh. Khamidov (1973-1976), Assoc. EI Surgutanov (1976-1991), Assoc. AA Yuldashev (1991-1994), prof. F.H.Zunnunov (1994-1995), Doctor of medical sciences. Kh.I. Yusuphojaev (1995-2000), Assoc. T.K. Khojayev (2000-2002), Acad. KN Abdullabekov (2002 - 2007).

    Since the organization of the department, more than 2,000 mining engineers-geophysicists have been trained who have fruitfully worked or continue to work in research institutes and production organizations and various firms, both within the country and in the countries of the Far and Near Abroad.

    Pupils of the department discovered large deposits of non-ferrous and rare metals, oil - gas, groundwater, ores of radioactive elements, etc.

   Graduate of the department (1952) Yu.N.Mordvintsev awarded the Lenin Prize for the discovery of the Muruntau gold deposit.

    Graduate of the department in 1956 GI Avanesyants was awarded the title of laureate of the State Prize. Beruni for the discovery of deposits of valuable elements within the areas of uranium-bearing deposits.

    The graduate of the department (1953) EF Uvarov was awarded the state award and the title of Honored Geologist of Uzbekistan for discovering the deposits of radioactive elements in Central (Central) Asia.

    Many graduates occupied, and some continue to occupy responsible leadership positions (GI Avanesyants, BA Bondarenko, Sh. A. Dolatkazin, VA Klichnikov, GV Koshlakov, N. Ya. Kunin, B RYumanov, VN Balashev, AN Balashev, EF Uvarov, VI Ulomov, NG Degtyarev, LV Kvasova, BM Urazaev, A.G. Khvalovsky, AA Akramov, Kh.Kh. Inogamov, Yu.M. Kuznetsov, KS Kumarov, B.A. Kharikov, A.V. Kirschin, K.N.Abdullabekov, L.A.Sim, G.A.Mozhina, N.K.Roz and others).

    Many graduates of the department defended their candidate dissertations, separate doctoral dissertations (VZ Fursov, BMUrazaev, N.Ya. Kunin, F.Kh.Zunnunov, V.I. Ulomov, L.I. Kogan, A.B. V.Kirshin, K.N.Abdullabekov, S.H.Maksudov, H.I. Yusuphodjaev, OPMordvintsev, O.P.Mordvintsev, R.A.Umurzakov et al.

    Currently a professor - teaching staff of the department "Hydrogeology and Geophysics" continuing a long tradition of actively participating scientific and educational life of the republic. The main scientific direction of the department: the study and identification of patterns of formation and distribution of groundwater study of hydro-geological conditions for water supply of cities and towns, geotechnical studies to study civil engineering construction and urban development (including civil engineering), to study the features of composition, properties and state loess rocks as the basis for engineering structures, evaluation and prediction of changes geoenvironmental medium To develop measures the management, development and improvement of geophysical methods for prospecting and exploration of mineral resources.

    By order of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan №568 from 17.01.2007 from the academic year 2008-2009goda resumed recruitment of students for the direction of "Hydrogeology and Engineering Geology" in the amount of 25 people. And with the years 2012-2013 in the amount of 40 people.
