History

1840-s

The Department of Geodesy, one of the oldest in the University, was created in 1842 when establishing Building school in St.-Petersburg. From its first days the subject "Geodesy" was an independent discipline. The department was headed by well-known geodesists and world-famous scientists N.A.Boguslavsky, V.V.Vitkovsky, V.A.Vazheevsky, O.G.Ditts.

1950-s

The multi-specialty department of urban development was created in 1954 as graduating engineers of urban development and municipal services on two specialties: "Municipal Transportation and Means of Communication", "Site Preparation and Urban Land Improvement".

The department did research work on various issues: buildings and territories engineering equipment, sanitary accomplishment of cities, municipal transportation, streets, roads and organization of traffic and pedestrians moving, engineering preparation and accomplishment of city territories, city hydraulic engineering.


1960-s and 1970-s

The department was doing active research from 1959 to 1972. Lecturers, engineers and scientists worked at water pollution control, steam hydraulics, construction in the Arctic and permanently frozen soils, traffic organization and recreational territories planning. The results were used in planning, building and use of engineering constructions and transportation systems.

In 1960-s and 1970-s many people got their PhD at the department. Textbooks, monographs and guides were published and used in other universities. Scholarly and technical literature of the time presented the results of pipelines hydraulic tests and waste water sludge processing. Starting from the 1960-s the department worked at issues of building in the Arctic. In 1970-s research in engineering planning and urban improvement were made.


1980-s and 1990-s

In 1980-s and beginning of 1990-s the department was redesigned to work with Architecture students and its own the scientific activity slowed. In 1993 people could enter Urban Development specialty again and the department began to graduate students. Software and methodological support improved, so scientific activity was restored.
