The department of “Hydrotechnical structures and engineering constructions” was founded in 1930 in the Engineering Melioration faculty of University of Turkistan (based on the current National University of Uzbekistan named after Mirzo Ulugbek). In 1934, it was divided into the Departments of “Hydrotechnical Structures” and “Engineering Constructions, Bases and Foundations”. In 2004, two departments were re-united, and the “Hydrotechnical Structures and Engineering Constructions” Department was established.

The “Hydrotechnical Structures” department was headed by E.A.Zamarin (1930-1932), N.A.Fandeev (1932-1941), V.V.Poslavskiy (1941-1949), A.O.Ostrovskiy (1949-1963), Z.X.Xusanxodjaev (1963-1973), E.I.Pavlova (1981-1985) and M.R.Bakiev (1985-2004).

The “Engineering Constructions” department was headed by A.N.Askochinskiy (1934-1950), K.I.Bochkov (1950-1963), E.S.Pesikov (1964-1971, 1986-1992), K.I.Talabaev (1971-1975), X.A.Asqarov (1975-1986), A.A.Kurbonov (1992-1999), and A.G.Mirzaev (1999-2004).

After the two departments were combined in 2004, Prof. M.R. Bakiev (2004-2014) and Associate Prof. N.R. Rahmatov (2014-2017) managed the "Hydrotechnical Structures and Engineering Structures" department. Since 2017, Prof. M.R. Bakiev has served as the department's leader.

At the department, some scientific research was conducted by scientists: academicians V.V. Poslavskiy, A.N. Askochinskiy, and A.M. Mutsamedov; professors N.G. Malchikovsky, Ye.A. Zamarin, N.A. Fandeev, V.D. Jurin, V.D. Bulaevsky, A.O. Ostrovsky, and M.S. Vizgo; associate professors Z.Khusankhodzhaev, Ye.I. Pavlova, G.A. Soy, N.I.Sviridov, B.P.Surovsev, Z.I. Ryadova, and L.I. Antonova. They considered scientific solutions to the improvement of projects of hydrotechnical structures, the regulation of flows, the regulation of filtration flow, the design of constructions of earth-dams and other problems in the field. Scientists of the department made a significant contribution to the history of the development of hydraulic engineering.

Nowadays, professors M.R.Bakiev and A.A.Yangiev, associate professors N.R.Rakhmatov, M.A.Kadirova, O.Kadirov, N.Maalem, D.Adjimuratov, K.Yakubov, O.Khalimbetov and O.Vafoeva, senior teacher T.J.Muslimov, assistants Sh.Djabbarova, Kh.Khasanov, Sh.Panjiyev and Sh.Kurbanov are working at the department. In the laboratory, the head of the laboratory O. Matkarimov and lobarant F. Dzhumayeva are working. In addition, postdoctoral student O'. Kahorov and PhD student A. Jakhanov are conducting scientific research.

Methodical and scientific achievements of the department

The department includes three laboratory boxes: one devoted to the Topolong Reservoir model, one for "Hydrotechnical structures" (area 180 m2), one for "Soil mechanics and construction materials" (area 140 m2), and one for "Inter-departmental laboratory" (size 240 m2). They are fully set up with trays, equipment, and other items required for conducting scientific research and laboratory tasks. These laboratories are being completely reconstructed to satisfy modern standards.

In 2003-2005 it conducted scientific research for an international grant (cost 30,000$) on the theme “Studying the reliability of operated hydrotechnical installations and working out the measures of increasing safety of them”. It worked out the measures for developing the reliability of reservoirs in Sultonsanjar, Tuyamuyin, Chortok, Chimkurgon and irrigation installation Sugam system. In 2009-2011was achieved an international grant (cost 17.000 USD) under the leadership of professor M.R.Bakiev which was used in the farm industry in Xorezm, Kashkadarya, Buxara regions and the Republic of Karakalpakstan. According to the economic agreement (2011, 35mln sums), it was done scientific research.

Furthermore, the following technological and scientific works have been done:
