Angarsk – a city born of the Victory. The construction on the bank of Angara River began after the World War II ended. Large and powerful industrial complex was developed. This was the main cause of the big demand for the engineering corps. There was a necessity for a higher technical educational institution. So, in 1952-53 school year, on the basis of Angarsk Industrial Technical Vocational School, a nationwide distance learning polytechnical institute was created. This served as the foundation for the AGTA.
