Moscow Power Engineering Institute (Technical University)
MPEI was founded in 1930 in Moscow at the very beginning of world power engineering development and was widened and enlarged with discovering of new energy sources, solving new scientific and technological problems, implementing of new methods of energy generation, distribution and consumption - MPEI is of the same age as Russian Power Engineering.
Now MPEI is the largest educational and scientific centre, one of the main technical universities in Russia in the field of Power Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Radio Engineering and Electronics, Informatics and Computer Science. MPEI is rigged up with educational and scientific laboratories, offices and lecture halls with modern equipment and technical training aids. In 2010 MPEI obtained status of National Research University, since 1987 MPEI is a member of International Association of Universities. MPEI holds one of the leading places in annual official ratings among technical universities of Russia.
There are 70 Departments in MPEI, 550 educational laboratories for students, more than 100 research laboratories and High-Tech Centre. Now more than 15,000 students and 500 Ph.D. students are trained at MPEI, including 950 foreign students and post-graduates from 65 countries.
