Biography[edit]

In 1964, graduated from Batumi first high school with gold medal.

In 1969, graduated from the Georgian Technical University Department of Civil Engineering, and went through the course of post graduate study in the field of spatial constructions in 1972.

Since 1973 to present he has been working in Georgian Technical University. He was a head of the Civil Engineering Constructions Department in 1985-1995, and then, in 1995-2004, the head of the special constructions department founded by himself. Currently he is a full professor in the Georgian Technical University.

In 1979 he established the Georgian Institute of Space Constructions whereat he holds the post of the general constructor and general director. There are numerous space and terrestrial military engineering complexes and constructions developed in the institute.

In 1978-1989, being the chief of Tbilisi branch of the Moscow Central Scientific-industrial Corporation KOMETA and general constructor of its military space technology, Elguja Medzmariashvili, due to the state commission decision and for coping with a special task, was cooperating with the scientific technical committee of the engineer corps of the Ministry of Defense, facultyies of the general staff and military engineering academy, Korolev Rocket Space Corporation ENERGY, Khrunichev Rocket Building Factory, Moscow mechanics problems and aviation institutes as well as special scientific institutions, universities and institutes in Dnepropetrocsk, Siktivkar, Dubna, Nakhabino, Podlipsk, Kharkov and other cities.

Since 1995 to present, being the research manager and direct member of the working group, he has been fulfilling the orders of the German company “Daimler-Benz Aerospace” - “Dornier-Satelliten systeme, Italian company Alenia Aerospazio, Munich technical University Institute of lightweight Constructions (LLB, Technische Universitat Munchen) and European Space Agency (ESA).

On July 23, 1999 the first Georgian space object was launched into orbit, which, after successful deployment and testings, was shifted from the orbital station to an independent satellite orbit. Elguja Medzmariashvili is the general constructor of the first Georgian space object.

In 1999-2002 he was an adviser to the defense minister of Georgia in the field of engineering support of troops.

In 1999-2004 he was elected member of the Georgian parliament wherein he initially held the industry subcommittee chief’s post and then the posts of parliamentary group chief and parliamentary thematic majority leader.

He has published more than 250 scientific works, including monographs, manuals, articles, and inventions.

Elguja Medzmariashvili is the creator of the transformable engineering systems theory and unique transformable military and civil, space and terrestrial deployable complexes. He established the scientific, technical and academic base of development of the military engineering field in Georgia.

He has a spouse and four children.
