General Information

 

The University incorporates 11 Departments, preliminary training courses, 32 Chairs, R & D Division, Ph.D. courses, administrative divisions and maintenance services, a scientific-information centre, commercial centres, social facilities, teaching-auxiliary, cultural and educational subdivisions. 

 

There exist two University affiliates in Segezha (the Republic of Karelia) and in Kuvshinovo (the Tver oblast).

 

More than 300 teachers are working at the University including 50 Full Professors, 180 Associate Professors. Of 5000 students learning at the University, 3000 are full-time students.

 

Many University graduates work at enterprises of the Russian pulp and paper sector situated all over the territory of Russia from Sakhalin to Kaliningrad. However, the majority of the mills are concentrated in the North-West and Central regions. For example, about 100 University graduates are working as engineers and top managers at the enterprises each such as Volga, Vyborgskaya Cellulose, the Syassky Pulp and Paper Mill, the Pitkeranta Pulp Mill, the Saint Petersburg Goznak Mill, the Saint Petersburg Board-Polygraph Mill, etc. Even greater number of graduates (200 and more) is affiliated to the mills each such as Mondi Business Paper Syktyvkar, the Segezhsky Pulp and Paper Mill, the Kotlas Pulp and Paper Mill, the Kondopoga Pulp and Paper Mill. The University graduates work at a number of well-known companies as well as at other firms, organisations and centres of the pulp and paper industry all over the world.

 

During recent years, a national educational system reform is being put into effect in Russia. The reform provides for the measures for improvement of the national system of higher education too. It is planned to reorganise the system in such a way that it is adjusted most closely to the European one, which is being created in the frameworks of the Bologna process. Our University is working for the Bologna process implementation.

 

 

History

 

The history of our University dates back to 1931, when the Leningrad Promcooperation Institute was founded. In 1959 it was renamed into the Leningrad Technological Institute for the Pulp and Paper Industry.

 

In 1993, the Institute got the status of University and was renamed into the Saint Petersburg State Technological University of Plant Polymers. Beginning in the fifties, research works dealing with pulp, paper and board production were being carried out actively in the University.

 

Now the University is the only higher educational establishment in the Russian Federation providing integrated training of specialists for industrial enterprises engaged in in-depth chemical processing of wood. The majority of University graduates work in the forest, pulp and paper industries, the chemical industry, the power sector of Russia, CIS and foreign countries.

 

 

 

 

 

Research and Development (R&D)

 

The University takes part in several international and federal programmes such as “Research and Integrated Use of Wood Biomass” (since 1990), “The Integrated Use and Renewal of Wood Raw Material” (since 1991). Since 2002, the University is a leading organization in implementing the scientific and technological programmes such as “Environmentally Safe Technologies of Wood Raw Material Harvesting and Processing” as well as “R & D in Priority Lines of Science and Technology Development for 2002 – 2006”.

 

The Scientific Schools headed by leading scientists of the University gained international recognition. For example, the environmentally safe papermaking technology based on the aerodynamic dry forming method that did not have any world analogues has been developed and implemented at the University. University scientists have developed the closed water-cycle technology for pulp and paper mills, which has been awarded the state prize of the Russian Federation in the field of science and engineering.

 

Presently, the University is developing business relations in the field of machinery building with a number of foreign companies such as Voith, Metso, Andritz, etc.

 

The University participates regularly in many national and international programmes. University scientists carry out fundamental and applied research in collaboration with their colleagues from U.S.A., Germany, Canada, Poland, France, China, Finland, etc.

 

The University representatives are members of a number of International Committees and Commissions such as UN FAO ACPWP, COCVER.
