About scientific activity in SPbGASU

St Petersburg State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering is one of the largest country’s universities in the sphere of civil engineering, urban and territorial development, and environmental engineering. The university implements scientific, R&D, and innovative researches and pilot projects. The university is the leading research centre for fundamental and applied problems of architecture, urban and road construction, motor transport, environmental engineering, heat and water supply, economics, organization, and management in civil engineering, and other scientific areas. Rich historical traditions, highly professional staff, and state-of-the-art material base allow SPbGASU to carry out scientific and innovative activities at a high professional level.

At SPbGASU, we value research as a powerful form of learning by doing. Pushing the boundaries of knowledge in the fundamental educational spheres and the use of it in training qualified specialists is our permanent activity. We stand for the enhancement of qualification of the research staff and faculty; attracting and employment of young specialists in the education and research spheres; enriching education through engaging students in frontline faculty-led research activities, development of competitive hi-tech scientific and industrial products.

The development strategy for the research activities at the university is outlined by the University’s Academic Council.

Major Directions of Research at SPbGASU

  • State-of-the-art approaches to construction and reconstruction of buildings and structures
  • Impact of business activities on the environment
