Founded in 1918 Ivanovo State University of Chemistry and Technology today is a respected polytechnic school training engineers for various industrial facilities in the region and abroad. With truly distinguished teaching quality and superb facilities the university ensures students’ academic excellence of international level. We graduate specialists in a wide range of academic pathways – from technology, economy and management to social work, humanities and natural sciences.

The University encloses 9 faculties and institutes: Faculty of inorganic chemistry and technology, Faculty of organic chemistry and technology Faculty of chemical engineering and cybernetics, Faculty for humanities, Institute of management, finance and information systems, Faculty of fundamental and applied chemistry, International students’ faculty, Faculty of distance learning, Institute of further professional education.

ISUCT provides a wide range of training programs:

  • Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees;
  • PhD’s and DSc’s degrees;
  • Various internships and career enhancement programs;
  • Specialist retraining courses;
  • Russian as a foreign language;
  • Access courses;
  • Network cooperation for academic mobility;
  • Extra courses (electives).

ISUCT is ranked among TOP-100 russian universities according to Expert RA rating agency. In the meanwhile we are 5th in research and publishing performance ranking among 153 Russian technical universities (according to Higher School of Economics National Research University and RIA Novosti). ISUCT education quality management system meets ISO standards.

Our University handles foreign students since early 1950th due to either intergovernmental agreements or direct contracts. About 150 international students and PhD applicants from 18 countries study here today. We awarded diplomas to over 700 Bachelors and Masters from Eastern Europe, Latin America, Southeastern Asia and Africa. 40 of them have followed postgraduate programs and have defended their PhD Theses. Our foreign graduates are now engaged as chief executives in major companies and plants, research and training centers overseas.

Ivanovo University is traditionally committed to such key concepts as racial tolerance and internationalism. This promotes favorable corporate environment in the campus and long-standing links with our alumni.

The Academic Mobility Program attracts students from China, Kazakhstan, Czech Republic and Poland.

ISUCT students and postgraduates follow their academic courses and undertake research internships in European research centers and universities of Spain, Germany, Poland, Norway and Italy.

In 2012 our University was entitled to issue Diploma Supplements, a european-type attachment to diploma. The Diploma Supplement indicates our school’s degree recognition by the European Union. Discussions on establishing Double Degrees programs are currently underway with foreign partner universities. We extensively develop scientific and educational cooperation with Chinese universities. At present students and graduates from China pursue training programs in our university while our academics do their research and give lectures in leading Chinese universities. ISUCT established Center of Chinese language and Culture attended both by our students and staff and by students from other Ivanovo universities. Our University offers Russian language courses on a regular basis. Every day we work to make significant improvements to the Russian language learning process. With it in mind we undertake international seminar schools to discuss pressing problems in russian language and general speech standards. These seminars are attended by scientists from Belarus, Moldova, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Bulgaria, Serbia and others.
