History

In 1946, on the initiative of the first woman-irrigator TA Kolpakova, the faculty "Construction of medium-sized small hydroelectric power stations" was organized. Later, the faculty continued its activity under the names "Hydraulic engineering construction", "River hydrotechnical structures and construction of hydroelectric power stations". After organizational and structural transformations of the institute, the training of personnel in the specialty "Water management construction" has been conducted since 1991 by the "Educational Scientific Center for the Preparation of Irrigation Engineers" and since 1996 as part of the "Hydromelioration" faculty. In 2004 the faculty "Construction and operation of hydraulic structures" was organized.

 

According to the decision of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Uzbekistan on 3.11.2015 "On measures to improve the preparation and provision of a system of agriculture and water resources with highly qualified personnel", according to 311 resolutions, the Faculty "Construction and operation of hydraulic structures" carried out its activities. According to the Decree of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan of 24.05.2017, No. PP-3003 "On measures to radically improve the system of training engineering and technical personnel for the agriculture and water sector". Faculty "Construction and operation of hydraulic structures" was renamed into the faculty of "Hydraulic engineering construction" as part of the Tashkent Institute of Agricultural Irrigation and Reclamation Engineers.

 

For nearly 73 years of activity, the faculty has trained more than 6,000 qualified specialists in the field of water construction and energy and more than 100 specialists for foreign countries for the national economy of the Republic of Uzbekistan and the former union republics. Graduates of the faculty passed production practice at the construction of the Sayano-Shushenskaya, Bratsk, Toktogul, Nurek, Ust-Ilim, Chorvak hydroelectric power stations, Andijan, Talimarjan, Gissarak reservoirs, Tuya-Muyunsky, and Tupalang hydroschemes. Currently, the graduates of the faculty work on the construction of water facilities and energy, on the operation of large hydraulic structures, hydroelectric objects, in the basin management of irrigation systems, in water management organizations, in regional departments of pumping stations, energy and communications.
