|Moscow State Aviation Technological University
||Moscow State Technological University is the
leading national institution to train highly qualified specialists
in the field of aviation and space technologies. According to national
and international reviews, the University occupies the leading positions
among corresponding higher technical educational establishments,
that is due to a highly professional teaching staff of this University,
its rich technical facilities, modern technology and professional
training programs, corresponding to the world standards.
The University chronicle starts in 1932 with the foundation
of Dirigible Engineering Educational Center attached to Civil Air
Fleet (CAF) Ministry. In 1939 the Center was reorganized into Moscow
Institute of CAF Engineers and named after K.E. Tsiolkovsky. Konstantin
Tsiolkovsky (1857-1935) is a great Russian scientist and inventor
in the field of aerodynamics, aerospace engineering and the theory
of aircraft, rockets and dirigible. He was a founder of contemporary
astronautics. So, the Institute had honestly been credited to bear
his name. On June 17, 1940 Moscow Institute of Aviation Technology
(or shortly MATI) was established on the basis of the later. MATI
attained the University status and name Moscow State Aviation Technology
Institute - Russian State Technological University in 1992 - as the
recognition of both the scale and quality of its courses.
Today the University is one of the leading Russian technical
universities where highly skilled experts in the field of advanced
materials and high technologies are trained. Among the University
teaching staff there are Academicians of the Russian Academy of Sciences,
Russian Engineering Academy, Russian Academy of Technological Sciences
and Russian Academy of Natural Sciences. About 260 Professors and
Doctors of Science as well as more than 700 associate professors and
Ph.D. holders work at the University.
Scientific and research activities as well as training of seniors
are performed in cooperation with Khrunichev State Research and Production
Space Center (Khrunichev Space R&D Center - is a leader of national
space industry in development of new technology for space exploration).
The cooperation has resulted in establishing MATI's branch at Khrunichev
Space R&D Center. This MATI's division has received name "Aerospace
University for Specialized Training". The main goal for establishing
of Aerospace University was precise training of the specialists in
the field of development and production of advanced aerospace technology.
MATI leads very active international policy toward a wide
international co-operation and teaching highly qualified personnel.
The University staff contributed to several international projects
in all spheres connecting to aviation/space design, research, production,
marketing, service, maintenance, repair and finance. In collaboration
with foreign colleagues the University has established overseas Educational
Centers. It participates in the European University Consortium in
Aerospace Engineering (STAR project), international ecological projects
REAP, SEPS. MATI has been successfully developing joint educational
and research programmes with universities in Western Europe, USA and
Asia. High quality of specialist training and technological trends
in education and research stipulated the variety of MATI international
links and partnership.
International students got an access to the famous educational programs
of MATI in 1991. Currently, more than 200 students from Great Britain,
USA, Germany, South Korea, Turkey, India, Nepal, Kenya, Morocco, Oman,
China, Iran and some other countries are studying at the University.
University realizes the training according to the 24 specialties
of higher professional education and trains researchers according
to the 28 scientific specialties. Practical training and research
straight at the real working places and Centre's research labs allow
to expand an engineering outlook of the students and to familiarize
them with the contemporary problems of the aerospace industry.
Structure of the University
There are five main faculties in the University:
Faculty of Aerospace Engineering and Technology
Bachelor in Aerospace Engineering works in the field of aircraft
and spacecraft engineering and design. His activities also concern
the problems of various equipment development to provide the normal
operation of the aircraft, their complexes and systems. Objects
of Bachelor's professional activity are airplanes, helicopters,
rockets, spacecraft, technical systems (engines, life ensuring and
protection facilities, launch and other ground complexes) and technological
processes for their manufacturing.
Faculty of Material Science and Technology
Material Science and Technology is a special branch of the modern
sciences, which provides creation of the advanced materials as well
as new technological principles and methods for their processing.
The objects of Bachelor's professional activity are investigation
and development of new advanced materials and technology for their
processing, development of the correlation between material structure
Faculty of Avionics and Informational Systems
Avionics is the branch of the industry dealing with the problems
of aircraft control systems design and technology, radio and electronic
device design and technology, development of the apparatus for providing
investigations of environment, space and ocean. It also concerns
various instruments and devices for control and measuring, including
even medical equipment. The objects of professional activity are
devices, systems and complexes used in various fields of industry
and science. A specialist in this field could solve the following
industrial and scientific problems: development of automated systems
for quality control; development of computer technologies in instrument
making; development of automated systems for data processing, aircraft
control systems design etc.
Faculty of Applied Mathematics, Mechanics and Computer Science
Nowadays, Computer Science is the most rapidly developing branch
of industry and science. It provides new possibilities for collecting,
storing and transfer of the information, as well as design and utilization
of devices and computing systems. The objects of professional activity
are computers, networks and software, design and development of
new informational and Internet technologies.
Faculty of Economics and Ecology
Bachelor's activity in Economics concerns industrial administration,
marketing and management with application of advanced informational
technologies and economical theories. Specialists in Ecology deal
with the problems of environment control, rational utilization of
International students of the University are supervised by Department
of International Education. The Department offers a wide range of
services to foreign students at all stages of their University life.
This includes assistance and help to the new students in organisation
of their life and study here, solving emergency problems. The staff
advises students exploring their future options, helps finalists and
postgraduates with their decision-making and transition into life
beyond University. The Department offers Russian language and culture
programs. General courses on Russian grammar, phonetics, conversation,
reading and translation, business language, science language (technical)
are available via various programs.
Foreign students usually begin their study taking the Foundation course
where they learn Russian language and some fundamental subjects: mathematics,
physics, chemistry, technical drawing. After that they continue education
in training group together with Russian students according to one of
the 4-year Bachelor programs. Upon receiving BS degree, students
may study according to the Master programs during 2 years or
one of Engineering courses during 1,5 years.
Ph.D. degree (Candidate of Science in Russia) determines the
