Aerospace Engineering University of Moscow
Aerospace Engineering University of Moscow (National Research University) is one of the most prestigious higher education institutions in the field of Russian aviation and aerospace engineering in Russia. The Aerospace Engineering University of Moscow is a combination of modern teaching methods, a Techno-park, equipped classrooms, numerous scientific laboratories, 12 research centers, and education centers, 7 resource centers, a Pilot Training Plant, an airfield, and a developed social infrastructure.
The Aerospace Engineering University of Moscow was founded in 1930 to provide professional training for qualified personnel for the aviation industry and engineering industries. In 1925 Bauman Moscow State Technical University organized the aeromechanical department which was converted into the Faculty of Aeromechanics in 1930. On March 20, 1930, Bauman Moscow State Technical University decided to open five specialized engineering schools. Aeromechanical School for Graduates was one of the technical schools among them. Aeromechanical School for Graduates was organized with three divisions: Aircraft Manufacturing, Motors, and Aeronautics.
The Aerospace Engineering University of Moscow was constantly working on the design and construction of aircraft of different types and their engines. Since 1930 Aerospace Engineering University of Moscow has designed more than 200 types of aircraft and aircraft engines, including 26 aircraft, 25 helicopters, 30 gliders, 29 remotely piloted aircraft, 12 artificial satellites LA 6, 11 aircraft with flapping wings, 10 underwater research vehicles and 44 aircraft engines.
Currently, the Aerospace Engineering University of Moscow is the only university in Russia that carries out professional training of qualified personnel in the entire field of Aviation products, rockets, and space technology. Today the Aerospace Engineering University of Moscow has an administrative staff of 1,218 in 102 study departments. Since 1930, over 37,000 prominent specialists in the field of aviation and aerospace engineering have graduated from the Aerospace Engineering University of Moscow.
