Bauman Moscow State Technical University - History


The university was established in 1830 as Imperial Vocational School (Russian: Ремесленное училище, Remeslennoe Uchilische) by a decree of Emperor Nicholas I. It was renamed in 1868 as Imperial Moscow Technical School, then after the 1917 revolution to Moscow Highest Technical School (Russian: МВТУ, MHTS). A number of research institutes such as TsAGI were created from laboratories and departments of MHTS in 1918. Then in 1930 number of faculties branched out, merging with other educational and research organizations and formed several independent institutions of higher learning: Moscow Aviation Institute, Moscow Power Engineering Institute, Moscow State University of Civil Engineering (MSUCE), Military Chemical Academy. The remaining school was named Bauman Moscow Mechanical and Machine Construction Institute, after the revolutionary Bolshevik Nikolay Bauman. In October 1941 the Institute was evacuated to Izevsk. In April 1943 it returned to Moscow. The name MHTS was revived in 1943. The current name was given in 1989.
