In September 1 2007, the Department of Information Systems Education was established in the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics of the Kazakh State Women’s Teacher Training University. In September 1, 2016 the department changed its name to the department “Information Technology”. In 2007-2012, the first head of the department was the doctor of pedagogical sciences Kerimbaev Nurasil Nurymovich. In 2012-2016, the department was headed by the candidate of physical and mathematical sciences, associate professor Kozhamkulova Zhazira Zhumagulovna. Since 2016 the post is occupied by PhD doctor, academician of IAI – Doszhanova Aliya Amantayevna.
Since the academic year 2009-2010 the department trains students full-time and correspondence courses on the specialty 5В070300- “Information systems”. On the basis of the department, the subject “Information and Communication Technologies” is taught in three languages for 1 course of all specialties of the University.
At the moment, the department includes the Ph.D., Associate Professor K.S. Bertaeva, Candidate of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, associate professor. Zh.Z.Kozhamkulova, Ph.D., senior lecturer, prof. RAE M.Zh.Balabekova, Candidate of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, st.prep. B. Yagaliyeva, candidate of technical sciences, st.prep. GS Nabieva, PhD doctor, senior lecturers AA Doszhanov, F.U. Malikova, A.K. Kozbakova, masters, senior lecturers A.Zh.Moldakalikova, B.A.Pazilova, A.Nusipbekova, M.Chanbaeva, N.Ospanbekova, masters, teachers: N.Amankeldyzyzy, Sabit B., Eleshyzy S., Orazov S.K. ., Tolibaev Sh.D. They participate in social and cultural events at the level of the department, faculty and university.
Scientific-research work of the department is carried out at the proper level. Research direction “Information protection in the education system”. Works of the faculty of the faculty, represented by Z.Z.Kozhamkulov, M.Balabekov, S.Nugmanova, A.Doszhanova, M.F. Malikova, G.Nabiyeva. , B.E.

Starting in 2016, the Memorandum was signed with the Lublin Polytechnic University and joint research works are carried out. Along with this, the department is in close cooperation with Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Alexander G. Korchenko National Aviation University of Kyiv. In December 2016, a seminar was held on the direction “Information Security” for faculty, undergraduates and students of the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics.
Recently, the department carries out a lot of student research. And also, “Electronic textbook, built-in virtual video of ELMC discipline laboratory labs, lessons introduction of distance learning technology” (supervisor: Ph.D., senior lecturer, RAE professor M.Zh.Balabekova), “Research and development of biometric technologies systems of authentication using biometric technologies “(head: master, teacher Sh. Tolybaev),” Study of information security issues in Kazakhstan “(head: Dr. PhD AA Doszhanova).
The faculty of the department pays special attention to new scientific achievements and interactive methods of training based on the credit system.
Teachers of the department constantly improve their qualification level for its implementation in the educational process. Thus, under the guidance of a master, teacher Sh.D. Tolybaev, the “Developers of Information Systems” circle is working for students of the specialty 5B070300 – “Information Systems”. The purpose of the circle is to use information and communication technologies to introduce the theoretical knowledge gained; deepen theoretical knowledge of the subjects taught; coverage of practical training, which includes training that enhances professional orientation; formation of information and functional skills for students; full mastering of computer technology for application in life; interest students in improving the skills of logical thinking, to acquire deep knowledge and science. As a result of the work of the circle, students actively participate in the Republican conferences and olympiads.
Since 2012, the students of the department share their experience and knowledge on the program of academic mobility. For example, in the 2012-2013 academic year, students studied for 1 semester at the London Academy of Management (Great Britain, in 2016-2017 academic year from Kyzylorda State University named after Korkyt ata, a 3rd-year student in specialty 5B070300- “Information Systems” was trained in her specialty in our university.
