Kaliningrad State Technical University

Kaliningrad State Technical University (Russian: Калининградский государственный технический университет, (КГТУ); abbreviated KSTU) is a technical university at Victory Square in Kaliningrad, Russia. It is located in the former combined Amtsgericht and Landgericht building of Königsberg, Germany.

Having been founded on the basis of Moscow Technical Institute for the Fishery Industry, KSTU is justly considered as the beginning of Russian higher fishery education and a range of scientific schools in navigation, commercial fishery, and progressive technologies of food production. At present, it develops as a multi-disciplinary institution considering the demands and the economic potential of the Region, maintaining traditions of high quality specialist training for the fishery industry.

Students are trained in 42 higher educational courses at various levels, namely, Bachelor, Professional Diploma, Master, Doctor of Philosophy (Kandidat Nauk) and Doctor of Science (Doktor Nauk) Degrees; professionals are offered various upgrading courses.600 teachers and researchers, including 75 professors holding the Doktor Nauk Degree, 80 academicians and corresponding members of international and public Russian Academies of Science form the faculty if the University. 28 scientists are awarded titles of honoured workers of science, Russian higher education, branches of science, and the fishery industry.

Scientific research is traditionally undertaken in many areas being the most important for the modern navigation, fisheries and seafood processing, power engineering, construction, production automation and control, information technology, natural science, nano-technology, etc. The University founded effectively working schools in ichthyology, commercial fishery, shipbuilding and repair, automation of production and control, technique and technology of raw materials processing. There are 12 research laboratories and scientific centres, four of them being of the applied character. Four dissertation councils work at the University.

Recently, intensification of scientific work has involved the University into 25 federal scientific programmes, as well as in TEMPUS and TACIS projects. Regional representatives of public professional Academies of Science applied Centre for new Information Technologies, Research Institute for Maritime Engineering Service, Institute of Ecology and Sustainable Development successfully operate on the University basis.

International co-operation of the University with foreign educational and research organizations is constantly expanding, with the Baltic Sea region in particular.

Developing progressively, Kaliningrad State Technical University looks ahead with confidence.
