The university traces its history back to 1957, when the first group of students was admitted to the Kazakh Polytechnic Institute for the specialty “Industrial and Civil Engineering”. In 1961, recruitment for the specialty “Architecture” was carried out and the corresponding faculties were formed: construction, architecture and sanitary engineering. In 1980, on the basis of these faculties and the Alma-Ata branch of the All-Union Correspondence Engineering Institute, the Alma-Ata Institute of Architecture and Civil Engineering (AIACE) was opened.
Serekpek Mukashevich Baibolov, an experienced organizer, a major manufacturer, builder, Doctor of Technical Sciences, was appointed the first rector of AIACE.
In 1987, Pavel Alexandrovich Atrushkevich became the rector of AIACE. Under his leadership, the Institute was the first among the universities of Kazakhstan to be certified and accredited in 1991. In 1992, AIACE has renamed the Kazakh State Academy of Architecture and Construction (KazGASA).
In 2000, Amirlan Aidarbekovich Kusainov, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Honorary Member of the National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Kazakhstan, full member of the American Society of Engineers and Builders and the International Association for Soil Mechanics, Foundations and Foundation Engineering, academician of the Academy of Sciences of the Higher School of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Academician of the International Engineering Academy, foreign academician of the Russian Academy of Architecture and Construction Sciences (RAASN) – scientist, teacher, innovator was appointed Rector. In 2001, the Kazakh State Academy of Architecture and Construction has renamed the Kazakh Head Architectural and Construction Academy (KazGASA).
KazGASA is a leading university in Kazakhstan, a recognized scientific and educational center in the Central Asian region, one of the first to pass all stages of the introduction of a credit system of education. For the first time among the universities of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the Board of Trustees, the Board of Customers and expert commissions on specialties, the Laboratory of Educology, the Association of Graduates of Architectural and Construction Specialties (AVASS), etc. have been created.

The Kazakh-American University (KAU) was created on the basis of the synthesis of programs of American and Kazakh universities under articulation agreements, with the aim of teaching undergraduate courses in English. The idea belonged to the founder of the university – Amirlan Aidarbekovich Kusainov. September 12, 1997 – the date of formation of the university.
KAU was a unique institution synthesizing the best traditions of the Soviet and American educational systems. Since the foundation of the KAU, elements of the credit system have been present in the educational process. The experience of the Kazakh-American University was taken into account when drawing up the Rules of the credit system of education, approved by the order of the Ministry of Education and Sciences of the Republic of Kazakhstan in 2005. KAU is the first university to introduce the so-called “comments– – monthly reports of teachers on the student’s progress and behavior in front of his parents. At the same time, they began to conduct a Feedback survey of students about the quality of each teacher’s classes. KAU actively introduced new system, technological, managerial and social programs. Since 1997, the university, one of the first among the universities of the Republic of Kazakhstan, has introduced the process of separating students’ education and monitoring (evaluating) their knowledge; a multi-point letter system of the level of training; an innovative system of remuneration; Hand-outs (active handout); the concept of trilingualism in teaching; universal criteria for a comprehensive assessment of language proficiency; a trilingual glossary; protection of diploma projects (works) in English.
The Kazakh Head Architectural and Construction Academy (KazGASA, year of creation – 1980) and the Kazakh-American University (KAU, year of creation – 1997) in 2007 established an International Educational Corporation in the form of a university as a single educational, scientific and production complex combining educational, scientific, production and other units with the status of a legal entity (The Charter was approved by the decision of the general meeting of the founders of the IEC Protocol No. 1 dated 07.12.2006).

The IEC internal quality assurance system as a set of organizational structure, procedures, processes and resources implies the development of regulatory documents of the university necessary for the implementation of general quality management, which contain documented rules for the performance of work, forms and methods of quality management that ensure compliance of educational services provided with established requirements.
The IEC successfully operates a quality management system, which aims to improve the quality indicators of all types of university activities. Improving the management system, i.e. resource management systems (human, financial, technical, etc.) allows improving the quality of education and competitiveness of the university, achieving the academic and strategic goals.
The IEC’s entry into the global scientific and educational space is facilitated by the introduction and maintenance of a “Quality Management System for educational activities and training of specialists” based on international standards ISO 9000 series. In November 2005, an international certification audit was conducted, according to the results of which the QMS Certificate No. 40068 dated December 22, 2005 was issued by Moody International Certification (Great Britain).
3. The functionality of the governing documents on structural units, their powers and responsibilities to ensure management is determined by internal regulatory documentation (internal regulations, regulations, regulations, job descriptions, etc.).

Pursuant to the Order of the Minister of Education and Science of the Republic of Kazakhstan dated March 14, 2020 No. 108 “On strengthening measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus infection in educational institutions, organizations for orphans and children left without parental care for the period of the pandemic”, this section has been introduced into the Academic Policy.
The Regulations of the educational process and Practice contain a provision defining the procedure for organizing and implementing the educational process on distance educational technologies in accordance with the “Rules for organizing the educational process on distance educational technologies” approved by the Order of the Minister of Education and Science of the Republic of Kazakhstan dated March 20, 2015 No. 137.
The implementation of distance learning technologies (hereinafter referred to as DOT) in the IOC is carried out using network technology – this is a technology that includes the provision of educational and methodological materials, forms of interactive interaction of students with a tutor and with each other, as well as the administration of the educational process based on the use of the Internet.
The IEC has an information and education portal – a system-organized, interconnected set of information resources and Internet services containing administrative and academic teaching and methodological information, enabling the organization of the educational process on Distance learning technologies (http://elearning.kau.kz and http://elearning.kazgasa.kz).
The educational portal operates on the Moodle information system (English Modular Object Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment) (hereinafter referred to as the Moodle IS) – a modular object-oriented dynamic learning environment. Moodle is a site Content Management System (CMS) focused on organizing interaction between tutors and students, as well as for organizing traditional distance courses. This free-of-charge software package, in terms of its functionality, ease of development and ease of use, satisfies most of the requirements imposed by users to e-learning systems. Such e-learning systems are often called Learning Management Systems (LMS) or Virtual Learning Environments (VLE).
IS Moodle is an instrumental environment for the development of individual online courses by each teacher according to their types of classes. Moodle IP courses are information resources posted by teachers, after which students, having the appropriate access rights, can enroll in the course and work with it: study informational materials, participate in seminars, discussions, take tests, etc. The system has a centralized database that reflects all the real events and processes of the university.
