Being leading Civil Engineering university in Russia, MGSU is challenged to stay on top and be a pioneer in education and research for the construction industry in Russia. There are also efforts to distance university from stigma of being narrow industry university, that weighs down our position in country-wide and global rankings. In response to such challenges, MGSU is set to expand its range of competences, bring wider understanding to the term “civil engineering university”, a university that empowers people with knowledge and tools to create a sustainable built environment around them.
Such task can be solved only through development of relevant high-quality training programs for engineers-researchers with access to knowledge and practices from across the world. This strategy relies on trusted international partnerships with Universities with great deal of understanding and vision on what defines sustainable built environment.
