  • About University

    USATU can be historically traced back to the 19th century. The forefather of the University was Warsaw Polytechnic Institute founded in 1897 and closed up during the First Russian Revolution. Exactly at that time the funds and the academic staff of Warsaw Polytechnic were transferred to the capital city of the Cossacks – Novocherkassk. Therefore USATU rightly regards the Polytechnic Institute of Novocherkassk as its “grandfather”. The official history of the University dates back to 1932 when Rybinsk Aviation Institute was established on the basis of Novocherkassk Aviation Institute subsidiary started in Rybinsk in the late 1920s. At the beginning of the Second World War Rybinsk Aviation Institute was removed to Ufa and in 1942 it was given a new name – Ufa Aviation Institute named after Sergo Ordzhonokidze. In 1982 the Order of Lenin was awarded to the University for qualified specialists training and research development and in 1996 UAI became a technical university. The thesis “Science is the foundation of high quality education” was declared at the University more than 50 years ago. The integration of science, production and education is one of the conditions for developing the University. Today USATU is ranking as one of the top Technical Universities mainly due to the fact that science has always played an important role. USATU counts on innovations. Specialists are trained in the field of aviation and space and rocket technology; automation and control; machine building and metalworking; instrument – making; electronics and mechanical engineering; applied mathematics; computer science; economics and management; life safety. The University has established the Centre of education, research and innovation (CERI) that solves the problem of setting up close relations between all participants of innovation activities. Besides it helps to stimulate their participation in social, economic, technological, educational and cultural development of the Republic of Bashkortostan. CERI realizes a complete innovation life cycle – from the fundamental research to the final consumer product. Close creative contacts of USATU with academic and sectoral scientific structures promote effective work of joint research, greater involvement of the academic staff of the Russian Academy of Sciences in organizing and optimizing the educational process. The University intensively develops international contacts and takes part in a number of international educational and scientific programs. Joint educational and supported by Russian and international grants and promote the development of creative collaboration of participating universities.
