The Department of metal Technology was founded in 1934. In 1976, the Department of agricultural engineering Technologies was established at the Institute, which was then attached to the Department of materials Science. The first organizer, founder and head of the Department of metal Technology was associate Professor M. D. Livshits. The Department of agricultural engineering Technologies was headed by associate Professor A. 3. Rakhmonzoda in 1977-1983, associate Professor T. A. Mirsaidov and prof. M. A. Levitin in 1983-1993, and associate Professor Kh. n.Ibragimov in 1993-96. In 1997, the departments of "materials Science" and "agricultural engineering Technologies" were merged. Over the past period, the Department was headed by associate Professor V. D. Avagimov (1971-76), associate Professor A. Z. Rakhmonzoda (1976-77), associate Professor sh. Yuldashev (1977-82), associate Professor N. A. Anokhin (1983-88), Professor E. L. Haikin (1988-95), Professor M. T. Balabekov (1995-96), associate ProfessorU. p.

The Department pays great attention to integration with educational, scientific and industrial enterprises. Currently, a large scientific and methodological work is being carried out jointly with the Komsomolsk-on-Amur state technical University (KnAGTU). Textbooks, manuals, and monographs are prepared together. The Department has close ties with a number of research and educational institutions and enterprises, such as the Agency "Uzstandart", the research Institute "Metrology, standardization and certification", the Tashkent branch of the Turin Polytechnic Institute, JSC "Tashkent plant of agricultural engineering", JV "Tashkent pipe plant", Tashkent state technical University (TDTU), Tashkent state agrarian University (Tashdau), "BMK AGROMASH". Over the past 10 years, teachers of the Department have published more than 6 textbooks, more than 100 scientific articles in foreign and national journals, and received 15 patents. In the 2018-2020 academic year, 8 modern laboratory stands were installed. They have the opportunity to perform more than 30 laboratory works on the topic" machine parts and design basics". A circle "Young mechanic" was created from senior students. 30 articles were published by students under the guidance of professors and teachers, students take prizes at national Olympiads in natural Sciences. Currently, Amanov Avezhan from sun moon University in South Korea and Kimsanov Shohizhahon from Anhui University of the people's Republic of China work at the Department.
