Statement by the Rector of Kazakh National Agrarian Research University

Dear graduates, colleagues, friends!
In different years, you studied at one of the oldest agrarian universities of our country - Kazakh National Agrarian University, which in 2020 will celebrate its 90th anniversary.
The University was established in 1996 on the basis of two universities of the country - Almaty Zooveterinary and Kazakh Agricultural Institutes. In 2001, by the decree of the First President of the RK N.A.Nazarbayev, the University was granted a special status - a national university. From that moment, the university has begun transformation into a national research university.
Today the University is the leader of agrarian education and science; it trains practice-oriented, creative and thinking specialists who are able to implement innovative technologies in production.
For the qualitative training of specialists, the university has a developed scientific and educational infrastructure and a strong human resource potential. In 2015 the Agrotechnological Hub was opened, which is engaged in search and transfer of innovative technologies and new knowledge. It includes all innovation centers and laboratories of the University.
At present, the university is being transformed into a world-class university. For this purpose, the best practices of the world's leading universities are consolidated and implemented, based on the transfer of new knowledge and technologies.
The University is always proud of its graduates!
For you, it remains your home even many years after graduation. Every year, hundreds of graduates from all over Kazakhstan, from near and far abroad come to Alma Mater for the anniversary meetings of graduates. Classmates remember the happy years of study; they are interested in the fate of friends. After such meetings are often activated and business contacts of alumni. These meetings give a huge charge of joy, energy, youth, which is so lacking in people's everyday life!

Chairman of the Board - Rector T. I. ESPOLOV
On July 9-10, 2016, the first long-awaited meeting of graduates was held 40 years after graduating from the Faculty of Mechanization of Agricultural Production of the then Kazakh Agricultural Institute. The official part of the meeting was held in the main building of the University. Since the beginning of the year, continuous work was carried out to prepare this meeting. Friends who had not seen each other for a long time hugged each other warmly, greeted each other and talked. Many came to the meeting with their wives and grandchildren. It should be noted that the most interesting moment of the meeting came when the friends who came to the long-awaited meeting received a book "Meeting 40 years later", specially prepared for this event, consisting of 413 pages. This book is based on the meeting of graduates 40 years later, whose age in these days exceeded 60 years, who studied in 1971-1976 at the Faculty of Agricultural Mechanization of the Kazakh Agricultural Institute. There is confidence that this work will provide worthy assistance to the education of the younger generation of our country.
In 1971, 225 applicants entered the mechanical faculty of Kazakh Agricultural Institute, of which 176 students in 1976 successfully graduated from this university, qualified as mechanical engineer, and each of them received a direction to work in different regions of Kazakhstan. Since then, 40 years have passed, if we consider that about 40% of this time (15 years) falls on the collapse of the Soviet Union, and the remaining 60% (25 years) on the establishment and strengthening of Independence of Kazakhstan - the country of the Great Steppe, it becomes clear how difficult it was for these professionals. There was a situation when the country's economic management has moved to a completely different formation, it could not but affect the social environment where they worked, and also affected the psychological climate of individuals. It is worth noting that thanks to the Almighty, I am your fellow student, the compiler of this book Ospanov Abdymanap, being aware of all the responsibility, with honest intentions began the preparation and publication of this work, setting a goal, reflecting the life and work paths of our graduates, analyze them as far as possible, and show their achievements as an example for the education of the younger generation of our country.
A few words about the structure of this book. First, it is necessary to notice that the majority of materials of the book are presented in two languages (Kazakh and Russian). The book consists of seven chapters. The first chapter presents a brief history of the Kazakh Agricultural Institute. The second chapter contains the history of the Faculty of Mechanization of Agricultural Production and its Department. In the third chapter - autobiographical information about our teachers, who left a good memory of themselves. Here are also warm memories of our curators. In the fourth chapter - information about prospects of the further development of the Kazakh National Agrarian University. The basic concept of transition of agrarian university to Research University is specified. The information is given about the newly formed Kazakh-Japanese Innovation Center and educational scientific and production center "Technology of processing industries". The fifth chapter is called "We are 40 years later". The life paths of our fellow students over the past 40 years are briefly described here. The sixth chapter describes the cases that happened to our graduates, which in our opinion will be interesting for future generations. The last seventh chapter contains memories of untimely-departed classmates. Here are also the addresses and phone numbers of our classmates. In conclusion, on behalf of our classmates I would like to express my endless gratitude to all members of the organizational group who spared no effort, energy or time to organize our long-awaited meeting, especially Mahan and Serik, as well as decorated this book with their poetic art Talgat and Alpysbay. Before the breakup, friends agreed that from now on they will meet more often.
