The history of the Department of Hydraulics and Hydraulic Engineering dates back to 1931, when three departments and scientific and pedagogical schools were formed (today they are united in one large department):

• Department of Hydraulic Structures

(scientific and pedagogical school) "Research and design of hydraulic structures"

• Department of Hydraulics

(scientific and pedagogical school) "Hydraulic studies of hydraulic engineering and special structures"

(scientific and pedagogical school) "Channel processes, hydroecology and dynamics of water flows in urbanized territories"

• Department of Water Energy Use

(scientific and pedagogical school) "Water Energy Use"

The Department of Hydraulic Structures of MGSU (MISI) was formed in 1931. Specialized departments of the hydraulic engineering field were created on the basis of the department in various years. In 2011, the this Department was merged with the Department of Water Management and Seaports by the order of the rector. The first head of the department was Professor N.I. Anisimov, but already in the same 1931, Professor M.M. Grishin became the head of the department. He headed the department until 1972. He is the founder of the scientific school of hydraulic engineers in our country. Together with his colleagues, professors A.R.Berezinsky, P.I.Gordienko, A.A.Nichiporovich, N.P.Rozanov, S.M.Slissky and others, he published a fundamental textbook on hydraulic structures and numerous textbooks. Under the leadership of M.M. Grishin, the department became the leading one for training hydraulic engineers in the USSR. From 1972 to 1988, the department was headed by Professor S.M.Slisky, and from 1988 to 2011, Honored Worker of Science and Technology of the Russian Federation, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor L.N. Rasskazov, in 2011 - 2016 – Professor, Doctor of Technical Sciences N.A. Aniskin. In 2013, the department was renamed into the Department of Hydraulic Engineering.

The department has graduated more than 1,500 engineers who work in many countries of the world.

The Department of Hydraulics was formed in 1931. The results of numerous studies carried out by the staff of the Department of Hydraulics made it possible to clarify many
fundamental hydraulic patterns and develop methods for calculating various equipment and structures; to develop a set of engineering measures to improve the hydroecology of water bodies and reduce the risk of crisis situations. In the complex of educational laboratories of the Department of Hydraulics, the results of scientific research and development are actively introduced into the educational process.

The Department of Water Energy Use was formed in 1931. Academician I.G. Alexandrov - one of the largest domestic hydropower engineers, Professor V.M. Malyshev, who became the first head of the department and at the same time dean of the hydraulic power Faculty, I.P. Denisov, F.F. Gubin, N.S. Morgunov, N.A. Grigorovich, A.N. Shcherbina - well-known specialists in the field of design and construction of hydroelectric power plants were invited to work at the department. During the Great Patriotic War, the department together with the Institute worked under evacuation conditions in Novosibirsk. After returning to Moscow in 1944, the construction of the Cathedral hydroelectric laboratory began at a new location (Spartakovskaya Street). A great contribution to the reconstruction of the laboratory was made by senior laboratory assistant V.V. Pokrovsky and engineer I.G. Maksimov.

The head of the training laboratory A.I. Arkhipov, senior laboratory assistant L.P. Karaseva, and training master M.I. Korolev took a significant part in the reconstruction of the cabinet and laboratory equipment.

In 1954, the polarization-optical voltage research laboratory began to work in the basement, the smallest and deepest room of the building on Spartakovskaya Street. Later, it became one of the largest laboratories in the world under the guidance of Professor G.L. Khesin. In 1962-1964, the hydroelectric laboratory of the department was reconstructed. A research laboratory for the dynamics of high-pressure hydraulic structures was created in 1970, with the active participation of the department at the Faculty of Hydraulic Engineering; in 1984 a research laboratory of swirling flows appeared. In the same 1984, a group of employees engaged in the study of transients in hydraulic units and unsteady modes in pressure systems formed a research laboratory.
