Dmitry Mendeleev University of Chemical Technology of Russia has its roots going far back into the 19th century. Back then, professors from the Imperial Moscow Technical School (currently, Bauman State Technical University, Moscow, Russia) came up with an idea of establishing an Industrial College in Moscow to train “Chemical and Mechanical Engineer Assistants”.

This proposal received an enormous support on behalf of the Moscow City Duma on February 9, 1880, which passed a Decision to Build an Industrial College in Moscow to Commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the Russian Emperor Alexander II Reign.

The college foundation was laid on Miusskaya Square in Moscow on May 23, 1898. The classes began on July 1 in leased premises, and the first class was out of school in 1906.

Moscow Industrial College had a strong faculty, many of whom had been professionally trained at the Imperial Moscow Technical School and Moscow State University. This fact predetermined the dynamic development of the new educational institution, which was transformed into the Moscow Chemical Technical College in 1918, and began to churn out applied engineers.

In 1920, Moscow Chemical Technical College was used as a basis to establish Moscow DmitryMendeleev Institute of Chemical Technology (MCTI), which became the first specialised chemical technical school establishment in Russia to train professionals for the chemical and related industries, and made a hefty contribution in the industrial development and defense potential, especially during World War II.

In 1992, the Decree by the Russian Government transformed Moscow Dmitry Mendeleev Institute of Chemical Technology into Dmitry Mendeleev University of Chemical Technology of Russia.

Moscow Dmitry Mendeleev Institute of Chemical Technology became the forebear of a number of renowned higher educational institutions in the USSR, and other countries. MCTI/MUCTR takes pride in its famous scientists and founders of new research areas, such as Academicians N.Vorozhtsov, N. Zhavoronkov, V. Korshak, B. Zhukov, V. Koptyug, V. Legasov, V. Kafarov, famed process engineers N. Yushkevich, V. Yung, G. Petrov, A. Bakayev, senior officials within Russia’s higher education system, including S. Kaftanov and G. Yagodin, the USSR Minister of Culture P.Dyomichev, and many others.

The glorious cohort of the disciples carries on the cause of their teachers. MCTI/MUCTR graduates have effectively dealt with the challenges facing the USSR and Russia, including the defense issues.

This school is unlike others in terms of the fundamental nature and wide range of training provided to its students, multiple forms of the training process, and blending of the academic and research activities within the University. Currently, MUCTR is among the leaders of Russia’s technical universities, and enjoys the highest rating among Russia’s chemical technology schools. The University has gained the international recognition as a leading educational and research centre providing training for highly skilled professionals. MUCTR owes much of its success for over the past 20 years to Academician P. Sarkisov, Rector and current President of the University.

In 2014 D. Mendeleev University joined TOP-200 best universities of the world according to “QS University Rankings: BRICS”

During nearly 130 years of existence, the University went through a lot of trials and tribulations alongside the Russian science and industry, including the painful period of World War II, and the post-war reconstruction of Russian economy. The faculty and staff of D. Mendeleev University dealt enthusiastically with the issues of the nuclear energy use, cybernetics development, and conservation of the environment. Today, too, the University researchers continue their studies in the cutting-edge areas of the chemical science, and achieve outstanding results in bringing solutions to the problems of the fundamental science and applied research.
