About Tver State Technical University

Tver State Technical University is based in the city of Tver on the River Volga and was founded in 1922. It experienced several name changes, two related to the city which became Kalinin in 1931 before reverting to Tver in 1990, and was classified as a Polytechnic Institute before taking its current name in 1994.

It is one of five university-level institutions which has been called "the largest centre of education, science, technology and culture in the Upper Volga region".

The university describes itself as "a dynamically evolving university with a number of modern specialities".

It has five subject-based faculties – machine building, civil and industrial engineering, computer science and informatics, natural resources and engineering ecology and humanities and three devoted to international, correspondence and postgraduate students. The majority of the 56 majors are taught in Russian, with some English options.

The International Academic Co-operation Faculty dates to 1979, and since then 3,000 students from Latin America, Asia and Africa have graduated from it.

For seven years from 1958 the university was formerly known as Kalinin Peat Institute and the turf-based fuel remains an important speciality. Departments that centre around this include geotechnology and peat manufacture and peat machinery and equipment.

In 2018 it hosted an international symposium on "Sustainable development of the peat industry in Russia", with 134 experts from Russia and beyond.

In the 14th Century Tver was rival to Moscow as leader of the nascent Russian nation. It now has a population of approximately 400,000 people and is located on the direct route between Moscow and St Petersburg.
