With a foundation based on the Ukhta Industrial Institute, Ukhta State Technical University (USTU) represents oil and gas universities in Russia. It is European Russia’s biggest technical university, which has been recognized as a State Technical University in April 1999. Our school has produced over 25,000 economists and engineers who have graduated in timber industry, building, geology, and oil majors.
USTU maintains close ties with building, timber, and mining industries of Russia as well as oil and gas-producing companies in Komi. These partnerships allow us to provide qualified specialist training to students. They also participate in cooperation activities, apart from academics. We have a range of clubs, sections, and groups - including theater, ballroom dance, poets club, and vocal group. We take pride in our professional basketball team - Planet University, which has played in the major league.
