Kazan State Technical University (KSTU) was established in 1932. The history of the University is closely related to the progress of Russian aeronautics. Fundamental education and profound scientific research are the distinguishing features of the university, which make it very attractive for a great number of young people. Until the recent time, it was well known as Kazan Aviation Institute (KAI). In 1973, the Institute was named after AndreyN.Tupolev, the prominent aircraft designer. In 1992, it obtained the status of the State Technical University. The University was most recently accredited by the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation in 2008.

 

Today the University is one of the leading Russian institutions in aircraft engineering, engine- and instrument- design and manufacturing, computer science and radio- and telecommunications engineering. KSTU is the largest technical university in the Republic of Tatarstan and the Volga region.The University also has a Preparatory Department, an Advanced Training Department, a Continued Education Center, a Regional Center of New Information Technologies, a Scientific Library, Postgraduate and Doctoral Candidate Schools training for Ph.D. degree.

Kazan State Technical University has a rich experience in training of foreign students. At the very foundation of KSTU 50 students from Albania, Bulgaria, China, Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Hungary, Korea, Poland and Romania applied their documents to KSTU and successfully graduated.

Kazan is one of oldest cities in Russia, located on the Volga River, 820 km away from Moscow. It is the capital of Tatarstan which is home to 115 nationalities. Over 50 % of population are tatars, with Russians constituting the second largest population group. Russian and Tatar are the two official languages of the region, with completely equal status.

The island town of Sviyazhsk is a fortress town on an island 30 km away from Kazan, built in 1551 by Ivan the Great troops in only 4 weeks. The historical and architectural complex of Sviyazhsk includes four monasteries, three churches, two cathedrals, a bell tower, and a monument to victims of political repressions.

Blue Lakes is a very famous recreation spot for both locals and visitors. Water basins that are 2-18 metres deep are fed with underground waters and do not freeze in winter. The waters are completely transparent and rich in salts. The bottom is covered with saline silt mud. Swimming in Blue Lakes is not only a pleasure, but it is also very good for you.
