The telegram reads, in part:
“Over the course of its history, Russia’s oldest technical university has educated some 200,000 specialists, including exceptional designers, well-known scientists, and technical officers. This is the birthplace of highly-regarded engineering and science schools, the establishment that trained staff for our nation’s other educational institutions.
Thanks to its rich work experience and effective teaching system, MSTU remains a leading national research university to this day. Its graduates are sought-after within the high-tech sectors of our economy and are worthy of the Bauman name.”
MSTU graduates include cosmonautics founder Sergei Korolev, first nuclear reactor designer Nikolai Dollezhal, guided missile system creator Sergei Nepobedimy, aircraft designers Pavel Sukhoi and Andrei Tupolev, and many other exceptional engineers.
