The Kara-Kul Technical Faculty was organized in 1963, concomitant with the construction of the Toktogul hydroelectric power station, the biggest in Central Asia. The school’s primary purpose was to train specialists in building and management of the hydroelectric station. Graduates are in high demand not only in Kyrgyzstan, but in other developing regions of the world.
There are currently 40 instructors at the faculty, teaching about 500 students each year. The existing departments are:
- Hydrotechnic Construction
- Electrical Energy
