Institute of Environmental Engineering and Mechanization (IEEM) was created as a result of structural changes in the MGSU in 2011 and combined three the most important building areas: mechanization and automation in construction, water supply and drainage, heat supply and ventilation. The system of training in IEEM based on the concept of continuous multilevel education. We prepare basic specialists - bachelors, specialized professionals - engineers, focused on research and scientific-pedagogical activity - masters. Scientific research staff is trained in graduate and doctoral studies.
Currently, the Institute trains more than 2,500 students and auditors. Teaching staff, numbering more than 140 scientists and leading specialists-practitioners, works on 7 departments. All the departments of the Institute are issued. Each department is a scientific and practical school that provides a high quality of educational services. An important priority for the Institute is the development of scientific research and the training of qualified scientific staff.
The main directions of research activity of the institute IEEM - MGSU are following: trenchless technology renovation and construction of pipelines for water supply and drainage, resource-saving in the water supply systems, improvement of membrane methods of water purification, the use of nanotechnology in water treatment, biological and physico-chemical wastewater treatment, research structures deep wastewater treatment, development of methods for reconstruction and modernization of systems and structures of drainage facilities of cities and industrial enterprises, building thermal physics, energy conservation and efficiency, engineering equipment and climate control systems of buildings of different function, air-conditioning, refrigeration, compressors, pumps and fans, the creation of energy-saving machines and technologies, automation of technological processes and construction machinery, automation of elevators and building and lifting equipment, providing security and livelihoods of lifting equipment, the study of the use of cranes and manipulators, carrying out scientific researches for means of small-scale mechanization.
In IEEM exchange programs work for students and teachers with foreign educational institutions. Student exchange and practice in Bialystok Polytechnic University are carried out for a few years. Some graduate students and masters go to Germany at the Bauhaus-University of Weimar, Berlin Technical University for research. Close contacts established with the University of Applied Sciences Berlin in the direction of mechanization and automation of construction.
Also, cooperation with Russian universities was developed: with Saint-Petersburg State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering, Voronezh State University of Architecture and Construction, South Russian State Technical University, Vologda State Technical University, and with other universities within work of the educational-methodical commission. We do not lose connection with the higher educational institutions of the CIS countries: Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan.
