The Institute of Aerospace Instruments and Systems (formerly the Faculty of Instrumentation) is the coeval of our University. Vsevolod A. Pavlov was the first dean and the author of the first Soviet textbook on gyroscopic instruments.
The researchers and developers working at the Faculty have notably contributed to research and development of Soviet and Russian aerospace instrumentation in such fields as physical and technical research, theory and development of measuring and computing systems, systems of moving objects guidance, navigation and stabilization, automated design and instruments and systems testing, aerodynamic and gas-dynamic processes simulation, use of information technology in experimental research, technology, aerospace engineering.
The Institute of Aerospace Instruments and Systems trains specialists, bachelors and masters in modern instrumentation. About 95% of its faculty have scientific degrees, nearly 20 % of them are PhDs.
The Institute provides professional knowledge and training in the fields of aviation and space technology, health protection and safety, environmental engineering and protection, computer sciences, information systems and technologies, instrumentation and electronics.
The Institute’s high scientific and technical potential allows extensive collaboration with colleagues from the Universities of Bordeaux, Paris, Toulouse and Besancon (France), Beijing, Nanjing and Xi'an (China), and Catania (Italy). Scientists and teaching staff deliver in joint research projects and students and postgraduates have an opportunity of internship there.
Many Institute’s graduates have become prominent researchers, experts and public figures. Many of them head companies, research institutions and organizations. Georgy Poltavchenko, a 1992 graduate, is St. Petersburg’s Governor and the former Plenipotentiary Representative of RF President in the Central Federal District.
