006It is critical that Kazakhstan develop engineering education programs that provide students superior preparation in modern technical specialties with international standard certifications. Vocational and higher education should be oriented to the current and prospective demands of the national economy, this will assist in ensuring that all citizens receive relevant educations and it will also relive un employment issues in the future. We expect to implement modernization of teaching methods and actively develop online education systems, creating regional school centers.

It is also necessary to create a network of public-private partnerships for the development of 
higher and medium education. In conjunction with these programs the government should seek to provide supplemental educational grants to stimulate research and development (R&D). Higher education institutions should not limit themselves to purely educational functions, they should create and improve their applied science and R&D divisions.
