Hystory of the Department
Department was founded in April 1966.
The 60 years of the twentieth century were the years of active development of science and technology. New needs of industry, mining poses new challenges to researchers, the need has arisen for highly qualified professionals electromechanical profile that would have advanced training in electromechanical energy conversion, would be familiar with the latest developments in the theory of electrical machines and electrical materials.
It was in the 60s, the Electrical Engineering Department established on the basis of existing departments electrification of mining operations, production process automation, electrical engineering, as well as the establishment of other department EED - electrical machines, electric drive, industrial electronics and computing.
In science, it's a lot of young people. Gained weight, became even more well-known school of mining electricians DMI.
Initiated and the first head of the department of electrical machinery was Professor Kuvayev N.E. - a good organizer, a gifted teacher and tutor, a leading scholar of the scientific school of mining electricians. The creation of educational laboratories, their technical equipment and methodological support supervised A.M. Miroschnik, who headed the department in 1967.
