We are glad to welcome you at the oldest faculty of SPbGASU, one of the best faculties which train students on the basic construction specialties of a building complex of Russia.

In recent years, in addition to existing base ones, the faculty opened new perspective specialties and directions of training bachelors, masters, experts and post-graduate students.

Graduates of the faculty of civil engineering have always been in demand. This demand is satisfied by the educational process at the faculty organized using a rich educational and methodological and scientific and industrial base, educational and computing centers, inter-departmental laboratories and research centers, a modern park of computer and multimedia equipment, and also by qualified personnel.

The faculty has 11 departments, nine of which are graduating, about 220 full-time teachers, of which more than 70 percent have academic degrees and titles. The faculty has three full corresponding members (academicians) of the Russian Academy of Architecture and Building Sciences (RAASN), 22 doctors of science, 18 professors, five consulting professors, 118 candidates of technical sciences, associate professors. A significant part of the teachers are SPbGASU graduates. The faculty does a lot of work on the preparation of scientific and pedagogical personnel of the highest qualification in doctoral and postgraduate studies, including the target one.


The students of the faculty take an active part in many forms of international cooperation, such as the double degree program, summer and winter scientific schools, summer language schools, student exchanges and more. Sports and cultural extracurricular activities are held.

Dear applicants! At the SPbGASU faculty of civil engineering, you have wide opportunities and a large field of activities. Go for it and you won't regret it!

Nguyen Thai Hiep (Vietnam)
PhD student, Faculty of Civil Engineering

I completed my higher education at Ton Duc Thang University in Vietnam, after which, in order to pursue a career in teaching and science, I enrolled in a postgraduate programme at SPbGASU. I chose St. Petersburg because it is a very beautiful city, and I liked SPbGASU because of its high level of education. There are so many qualified professors and students from different countries here, that’s so great!

I would advise future foreign students not to be afraid to come here. I think Russian people are very kind and friendly. The main thing is to take efforts to master the language and stay focused on your studies.

Bachelor’s student, Faculty of Civil Engineering

I was searching for information on the web and I found only positive opinions about Saint Petersburg State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering. The academic level here is very good. I think it is a great choice – first of all, because of the high quality of education. Moreover, if you are an international student studying here to become a civil engineer or an architect, for example, you will also acquire a good knowledge of the Russian language in addition to professional competencies, and your future career will only benefit from that.

Bachelor’s student, Faculty of Civil Engineering

A friend of mine recommended Russia as the place to study – because of the country's high academic and cultural level. I did not know anything about universities there, but when I started searching online for the best Russian universities, SPbGASU was very high on the list. I wrote to three Russian universities in parallel and was surprised at how quickly I received a reply from SPbGASU.

There was another reason I chose this university: I read on the website that different sports clubs are available here and they encourage students to play sports. I play football as a goalkeeper, and I didn't want to interrupt my sporting career. Now I'm in the SPbGASU team.

That’s why I would recommend everyone not to be afraid and become a student of this university. Of course, it is not easy for foreigners to study in Russian, so you have to start with preparatory courses to learn the language first. I took a Russian course at SPbGASU last year, and it was very useful.

I have good relationships with my teachers: they are friendly and understand foreign students’ difficulties. But when it comes to studying, they are strict. That is as it should be.

Dragana Jordanovska (North Macedonia)
Master’s student, Faculty of Civil Engineering

I decided to study in Russia because the education system is different here. In Macedonia, you don't go to university and only meet your teachers at colloquiums, tests and exams. Several of my friends had moved to study in St. Petersburg and told me how nice it was here.

I really like the level of teaching at SPbGASU. And students at our university are interesting, friendly and talented, too.

Asadillo Khazhiev (Kyrgyzstan)
Bachelor’s student, Faculty of Civil Engineering

In 2019, I decided to study abroad, in the Russian Federation, to be exact. I wanted to go to a technical university. There were many different options, but on the very first page of a Google search I saw SPbGASU. I became interested and started reading reviews about the university. I think I made the right choice.

Choosing the university where you will spend your student years is certainly not an easy thing to do – many people say that these are the best years of their lives, and I agree with them. SPbGASU is a place where any of your initiatives can be fulfilled. I’ve checked it out! Seems like big words, but strangely enough, it’s absolutely true.

Nadezhda Zakusilova (Kazakhstan)
Bachelor’s student, Faculty of Civil Engineering

I was enrolled at SPbGASU in 2019. I really like studying here. The teachers pay attention to each student. Besides, there are many extracurricular activities: sports, dancing, fun quests and hobby clubs. We can study in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere.
