The progressive reforms being carried out today in all spheres are yielding results in the system of higher education.
In the 50s of the last century, large deposits of minerals were discovered in Uzbekistan, their extraction was planned, the construction of processing plants and metallurgical plants, the implementation of this plan was launched in the 1960s. In particular, the Almalyk mining and smelting plant, the Chodak, Angren, Marzhonbulak deposits and ore dressing factories belonging to the Uzbekaltyn association, and later the Navoi mining and smelting plant were created. During this period, the Bekabad metallurgical plant, the Chirchik refractory plant and the plant for the production of sparingly soluble metals (tungsten and molybdenum) functioned. The training of specialists to work at these mines, factories, factories - engineers, miners, concentrators and metallurgists - has become a requirement of the time. This task was dealt with by the mining department of the Tashkent Polytechnic Institute (now the Tashkent State Technical University). Since 1961, at the Almalyk Mining and Metallurgical Faculty, students began to study on the job in the evening education system.
In September 1963, the full-time mining and metallurgical faculty of the Tashkent Polytechnic Institute was transferred to the city of Almalyk with the aim of subsequent transfer of higher educational institutions to areas adjacent to industrial enterprises.
