Being the leading civil engineering university in Russia, MGSU is challenged to stay on top and be a pioneer in the fields of education and research for the construction industry in Russia. Efforts to distance university from stigma of allegedly being narrow industry university are being undertaken, too. In response to such challenges, MGSU is set to expand its range of competences, to bring wider understanding to the term of “civil engineering university”, and to remain a university that empowers people with knowledge and tools to create sustainable built environment around them.
Such task can be solved only through development of relevant high-quality training programs for engineers, researchers and other specialists with access to knowledge and practices from across the world. This strategy relies on strong international partnerships with Universities with great deal of understanding and vision of what defines sustainable built environment.
