Saint Petersburg Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics

Saint Petersburg Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics

is one of the oldest universities in Russia. Professional training of specialists began in 1900 when at Industrial School of Cesarevitch Nikolaj in St.Petersburg there was opened mechanical optical and clock department. Further that department was reorganized into Leningrad technical secondary school of exact mechanics and optics and later it became Leningrad Institute of exact mechanics and optics (LIEMO).

During the years of its activity the institute has been developing as a technical institution of higher education training engineers.  In 1980 LIEMO was given The Order of the Red Banner of Labour. In 1994 the institute was given the status of the technical university.

The University ITMO is a leading Russian school in Information and Optics Technologies. Currently the University ITMO provides educational services, at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, in approximately 35 specializations related to Information and Computer Technologies, Computer Science, Optical Engineering, Physical Engineering, Optical Technologies etc. Through the last three years, and using substantial governmental support, amounting approximately to EUR18,000,000, the University has been rebuilding itself as an Innovation University. In this connection it is worth mentioning that the University hosts the biggest in the City of Saint Petersburg Innovation Technologies Center together with a Business Incubator intended for supporting, among other purposes, innovation activities of students and graduates.

The rector of SPRUITMO is Honoured Science Worker of the Russian Federation. According to the State Educational Standard of Russia in the university there realized a multilevel system of high vocational training: bachelor's degree - 4 years, qualified specialist - 5 years, master's degree - 6 years. Educational plans of training allow students to choose the degree of training during their studies. Besides the whole system of education in the university is aimed at demands for the graduates of SPRUITMO.

The university is divided into 9 faculties, which are divided into 49 departments. 7 departments are affiliate departments and are marked by asterisk.
