Throughout its history Saint Petersburg State Polytechnical University has established partnerships with around 150 leading Institutions of higher learning from the USA, Germany, France, Finland, China, Singapore, South Korea and other countries around the world. Within the framework of an international cooperation program our University carries out the following activities:
Student and teaching staff exchange
Joint academic program development
Our University is a member of International Universities Association, Netherlands Organization of International Cooperation in Higher Learning and Saint Petersburg International Universities Consortium. Professors from more than 30 leading Universities all over the world are presently honorary Doctors of SPbSPU.
The Polytechnical University occupies one of the top positions among Russian institutions of higher learning participating in international academic projects. At present SPbSPU cooperates with more than 60 universities from all over the world.
The University takes part in a number of European academic projects, among them: TEMPUS/TASIS, BISTRO, COPERNICUS, INTAS, NORDIC and others, as well as collaborating with international research centers and industrial companies. Within the framework of this program the University runs the scientific research and training centers of "Motorola", "Hewlett Packard" and "Intel" companies, as well as Open Library Systems Center.
SPbSPU also contributes to work of world leading organizations in the following spheres: hydraulics (MAGI), electric networks (SIGRE) and dam engineering (SIGB). Our University also has an important role in International Institute of Welding, International Organization of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, International Organization of Automotive Management and International Power Academy.
