The Russian Union of Engineers (RUE) (Russian: Российский союз инженеров (РСИ)) is an all-Russian nongovernmental organization of engineers, design-engineers, builders, inventors, rationalizers, researchers, scientists, scientific and technical employees, and managers of industrial production.

The Russian Union of Engineers was registered on January 11, 2011 by the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation. However, the idea of integrating the engineering profession under the sponsorship of a public company dates back to the mid-nineties, when the objective necessity of cooperation between engineers, science workers and top-managers became apparent.

As of June 1, 2013, the Russian Union of Engineers comprises 42 regional departments in the largest regions of the country. The Union has more than 2000 members and more than 30,000 participants.

Activities[edit]

The objective of the Russian Union of Engineers is to establish a nongovernmental organization of Russian engineers, as well as its integration into the engineering society.

The activities of the RUE are focused in five main directions:

  • public activities of the RUE consist of outlining the problems of engineering society and contributing to the development of individual programs, including those on the international level;
  • interaction with the state and municipal authorities to promote the interests of the engineering society in legislative, executive and municipal authorities, and participation in preparation, elaboration or expert reviews of federal, regional or local regulatory acts;
  • research activities of the RUE are directed at the organization, development and implementation of engineering research, ranging from R&D to more specialized research in the field of material production.
  • expert work - preparation of expert reports;
  • international activities - the organization of contacts and exchange of engineering knowledge between the Russian scientific and engineering community and their counterparts from other countries.

In accordance with the Bylaws of the RUE, its highest governing body is the Convention of the RUE. The Convention meets once in five years. The Extraordinary Convention is convoked upon the resolution of the Presidium, the President or the Senior Vice-President of the Union, upon a written request of the Audit and Review Committee or upon a written request of more than a half of regional representations of the Union.

Social projects[edit]

On January 21, 2012, at the Polytechnical Museum of Moscow, the Russian Union of Engineers presented the general rating of city appeal of Russian cities[1] for 2011.

On May 20, 2013, the Ministry of Regional Development of the Russian Federation, the Federal Agency of Construction and Housing of the Russian Federation, Russian Union of Engineers and the experts of Lomonosov Moscow State University developed a rating and methodology of evaluation of urban environment and analyzed the 50 largest Russian cities.[2][3][4] For this work, the Union designed the methods of urban environment quality assessment and a city appeal threshold.

The rating has been developed:

  • by the order the President of the Russian Federation defined in paragraph 1 of Assignments No. Pr-534 of the President of the Russian Federation as of February 29, 2012, to executive bodies as a result of the meeting “On measures of implementation of the housing policy” as of February 14, 2012
