University today



Founded nearly 200 years ago, the Saint Petersburg Sate Institute of Technology remains one of the most prestigious institutions of higher technical education in Russia. As the alma mater of some of the world's most distinguished chemists such as D.I. Mendeleyev and F. K. Beilstein, to name but a few, the institute is devoted to preserving its heritage of academic excellence and scientific innovation.

Today, the SPSIT presents new cutting-edge research for modern branches of science and technology in the following fields:rocket-and-space technology, fuel industry, materials science, functional materials, information technology, medicine, environment, optoelectronic and nanomaterials. It specializes in the design and development of software products, command facilities as well as machines and devices of complex chemically engineered systems, and many more.

Our scientists are renowned for their achievements in various fields of chemistry, chemical engineering and technology. Among them are 4 laureates of the USSR State Prize and the Russian Federation State Prize in Science and Technology as well as 15 Academicians and Corresponding Members of Russian and international academies of sciences. Among our ranks we also have 7 Honored Workers of Science and Technology of the Russian Federation, 5 Honored Higher Education Employees of the Russian Federation, 35 Honored Workers of Higher Education of the Russian Federation, and 7 Honored Workers of Education of the Russian Federation.

The faculty of the SPSIT counts 80 Doctors of Sciences and 303 Candidates of Sciences.

There are currently over 8000 students studying at the university across 6 faculties and 51 departments.

Being one of the oldest Russian universities, the SPSIT has a long history of fruitful international cooperation. Since its inception, the institute invited outstanding foreign scientists many of whom became founders of pioneering scientific schools and made many groundbreaking discoveries. In keeping with that tradition, the institute maintains partnerships with colleagues from Germany, France, Finland, Algeria, China and Japan. Over 50 more projects of international collaboration, involving both universities and companies, are currently underway.

More specifically, international cooperation involves:

  • Coordinating student exchange programs;
  • Implementing doublediplomaprograms;
  • Organizing visiting lectureship and professorship programs;
  • Realizing joint research projects and scientific investigations;
  • Establishing contracts with foreign companies about joint scientific research projects;
  • Organizing and holding of international conferences, seminars and academic competitions;
  • Participating in international scientific practical conferences and seminars, educational programs and projects, academic competitions and symposiums;
  • Realizing collective publications, scientific, educational and methodological works.

Annually, outstanding scientists from various countries become honorable doctors of Saint-Petersburg State Institute of Technology.

The Saint Petersburg State Institute of Technology is a modern education and scientific facility with countless specialized laboratories, well-equipped auditoriums and computer and TV centers at its disposal. The institute’s library stores over 1 million volumes, including rare book collections and countless magazines on chemical and mechanical technologies—all organized electronically. The four adjacent reading rooms can house as many as 330 visitors simultaneously.  Our library is considered one of the best technological libraries in the country.

Over 80% of our students are members of the largest student organization – the Students` Trade Union that constitutes an autonomous body within the institute. Its primary goals are to raise social issues and provide fellow students with a sense of community.
