MSTU "STANKIN" in the list of the best engineering and technical universities of the country

STANKIN took the 29th place among the 70 best Russian universities in the engineering and technical field (aircraft construction, robotics, light industry, energy, construction, etc.). The list was compiled by the RAEX rating agency with the support of the Andrey Melnichenko Foundation and the Russian Union of Rectors.

The RAEX rating agency has compiled the top Russian universities in the natural science and engineering fields, adding 209 Russian higher education institutions to the shortlist of both ratings. The position of educational organizations was influenced by three factors – the demand for graduates in the labor market, the quality of education and scientific results.

"The new rankings include Russian universities that best prepare "techies". The published lists will undoubtedly be of interest to employers who need to update their personnel. In addition, the ratings should be an important tool for applicants with advanced mathematical abilities and engineering skills, " comments the General Director of the rating agency RAEX (RAEX-Analytics) Dmitry Grishankov.

There is a fairly wide geographical diversity in the rankings: representatives of 33 regions of Russia are among the best. In the top in the engineering and technical direction, Moscow universities are most often found – more than a quarter (26%). The second place in terms of the share of participants in St. Petersburg is 11%. Among the regions, the strongest positions are held by Tatarstan, Rostov and Tomsk regions.

"The shortage of high-quality engineering and technical personnel is a long-standing problem of the development of the real sector of the Russian economy. In this regard, employers are interested in the appearance of authoritative ratings that allow us to identify the best practices of training "techies". It is gratifying that the published rankings include universities from all federal districts of the country, and this is important from the point of view of the development of human capital in the regions of Russia," says Alexander Cherednik, Executive Director of the Andrey Melnichenko Foundation.
