Moscow Aviation Institute is one of the world’s top universities for aerospace engineering.

Importantly it is an internationally recognized research center. The Universities scientist and engineers pursue research at the leading edge of aerospace technology.

Moscow Aviation Institute (National Research University) was established on 20 March 1930 as Higher Aero-mechanical college (VAMU) by the order of Supreme Economic Council of the USSR in order to ensure training of qualified personnel for the aviation industry.

In the beginning it had 3 departments i.e. Aeronautical, Aircraft engines and Aerodynamics.

On its 10th anniversary in 1940, the university had established itself as a premier aeronautical university with 38 departments, 22 laboratories and a Student design office along with spacious production facility.

The uniqueness of the MAI is that historically it was created to train specialists for almost all departments and teams in the Design Bureaus of the aviation industry.

Currently, MAI is the only university in Russia, which provides highly qualified personnel for the entire product life cycle in the aerospace industry, from system design to implementation of cutting edge technologies.

The present-day MAI is a unique institute of higher education where thorough theoretical knowledge are combined with various practical skills. There are more than 120 laboratories, 3 student design offices, 3 specialized resource centers, an experimental-design factory, and an aerodrome are available for the students.

The university has to its merit more than 160000 specialists, 250 chief designers in the Aerospace Industry. 50 Academicians of the Russian Academy of Sciences, 22 cosmonauts, 100 test pilots and 60 Olympic champions in different sports.

Alumni of the institute form the backbone of many companies like Sukhoi, MIG,Ilyushin, Tupolev, Yakovlev, Beriev, Myasishchev, Mil Moscow Helicopter Plant,OAO S.P. Korolev Rocket and Space Corporation Energia, Lavochkin,Makeyev Rocket Design Bureau, Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center, NPO Energomash, Almaz-Antey and others.

Students Strength: At Moscow Aviation Institute you will find more than 20000 students studying there. Among them there are 2000 international students from over 50 countries.


  • 1.) Training combined with research program with help of advanced equipment
  • 2.) Implementation of advanced educational methods, including the use of e-learning technologies, etc
  • 3.) The use of everlasting design principle for all aircraft systems, missile and space technology. Students are engaged in research projects for industry-based Russian and foreign companies, which help students to see their prospects in these organizations.
