The first 18 specialists in «Ceramics and fire-proof materials» and «Technology of knitting materials» specialty were educated in the Central-Asian State University in 1929-1940. The education of manufacturing engineers specialized in «Technology of silicates» began in 1940 at the Central-Asian Industrial Institute. On the foundation of this institute the department «Technology of silicates» was opened first, and manufacturing engineer Tarnovskiy S.P. was appointed head of the department. From 1941 prof. Sepin was appointed to this post, and from 1944 it was held by doc. Kantsepolskiy I.S.

Since 1947 this post was held by prof. Tojiev F.H for 50 years, who is an Honored Worker of Science of Uzbekistan.

In 1961 the Central-Asian Polytechnic Institute was re-named into Polytechnic Institute of Tashkent and education of engineers in two directions: “Chemical technology of ceramics and fire-proof materials” and “Chemical technology of knitting materials”.

In 1983 the head of department of “Chemical technology of ceramics and fire-proof materials” became prof. Tojiev F.H, and the head of “Chemical technology of knitting materials” became prof. Ismatov A.A.

In 1991 the department was re-named into “Technology of ceramics and glass” and the department head was prof. Ismatov A.A, and the department head of “Chemical technology of knitting materials” was prof. Atakuziev T.A. In 1999 both departments were merged and named “Technology of silicate materials”. Prof. Ismatov A.A was appointed as the head of the merged departments. From 2001-2002 prof. Eminov A.M held the post and in 2002-2010 years prof. Ismatov A.A became the departmental head again.

In 2010 prof. Aripova M.X was appointed the head of department.

In 2011 the department was re-named into “Technology of silicate materials and rare precious metals”. At present the department prepares both bachelors and magistrates in the following direcions

Priority directions of research activity of the department:

The science-research works of our department are tensely connected with the development of the silicate industry in Uzbekistan. The new researches of the department are directed on synthesis of glasses and glass-ceramics for technical and medical use, acid-resistant ceramics on the basis of local raw materials and industrial wastes, the studying of their physical and chemical properties.

Under the guidance of Professor M.Kh.Aripova research on the development of structures and technology of biomaterials that act as substitutes for bones and participating in osteosynthesis was carried out. A number of studies focused on the development of processes and the development of recycling of phosphogypsum with production of acid-resistant cements on its base.

The department paid serious attention to the continuous cooperation with the enterprises of industries and science, in particular:

1. On the basis of local raw materials a technology of production of ceramic tiles and frits have been developed, the technology implemented in Industry at the "Art Gloss Galery" company, 4  Acts of Tests received in 2015 for work performed.

2. Biocompatible materials developed under the guidance of prof. Aripova M.K. have successfully passed clinical tests and used in the Tashkent Institute of Traumatology.

3. Developed under the guidance of, Ph.D. Abdusattarov Sh.M. "Building brick production technology based on local raw materials"  have been implemented in Navoi in 2015-2016.
