The Department of Geodesy was established in 1842, along with the College of Civil Engineers. From the very beginning, "Geodesy" was a separate discipline. Prominent geodesists and famous scientists N.A.Boguslavsky, V.V.Vitkovsky, V.A.Vazheevsky, O.G.Ditts served as heads of the department in the pre-revolutionary period.

A multi-specialty Department of Urban Development was established in 1954. It was awarding degrees in urban development and municipal services in two specializations: "Municipal Transportation and Communication Roads", “Engineering Development and Improvement of Urban Areas.”

The Department held educational and research works in a broad sphere of matters: engineering equipment of buildings and territories; urban sanitary redevelopment; city transport; streets, roads, transport engineering; engineering development and urban redevelopment; urban hydrotechnics.

1960-s and 1970-s

The Department was focusing at water pollution control, steam hydraulics, geodesic exploration in the Arctic and permanently frozen soils, traffic organization and recreational territories planning. Quite a few textbooks, monographs and guides were published and used in teaching not only at our institute. Starting from the 1960-s, the Department was actively engaged in the construction development issues in the Arctic.

In 1980-s and beginning of 1990-s the Department was restructured to work with students of the Architectural Faculty. For a while, it stopped awarding degrees but resumed in 1993. With the progress and software support of geodesic research, specialists of the Department significantly expanded the scope of their research activities.
