The Federal State Autonomous Educational Institution of Higher Education “Siberian Federal University” was established within the framework of the “Education” National Project by the Resolution of the Russian Government No.1518-р issued on November 4, 2006. The purposes of the new University establishment were to support the modernization of the Russian higher education system, to increase the competitiveness of Siberian economy, to train highly qualified professionals and to develop international cooperation in research, education, technology and culture.

Siberian Federal University was established by merging four large Universities: Krasnoyarsk State University, Krasnoyarsk State Technical University, Krasnoyarsk State Academy of Architecture and Construction and Krasnoyarsk State University of Non-Ferrous Metals and Gold. SibFU is a multidisciplinary institution that combines fundamental and applied research and teaching.

  • Partnership relations are formed with universities of Russia, Europe, Asia and the USA (SibFU Department of International Affairs);
  • Particular traditions have appeared (exclusive festival «Universinale»);
  • More and more student communities are established (Young leaders of SibFU), student life is always on the move.

SibFU is committed to cooperate with large corporations located in Krasnoyarsk Krai such as MMC Norilsk Nickel, «Vankorneft»,RUSAL, etc. by building joint laboratories and organizing student research groups. Moreover, a set of anti-recessionary measures has been recently elaborated in Siberian Federal University. All the measures are taken to minimize consequences of the economic crisis for students, faculty and staff of SibFU.

Siberian Federal University stands out from many Russian higher education institutions by a diverse range of possibilities concerning not only pre-tertiary training but also higher, post-graduate and further vocational education. At the present time, Siberian Federal University includes 35 R&D subdivisions such as research institutes, design bureau, centers for equipment joint use, REC, laboratories, innovation centers, technology parks, centers of technology transfer, pilot factories, etc.

The number of full-time students in SibFU – 41,000 people.
