Institute of Shipbuilding and Arctic Marine Engineering (Sevmashvtuz)

The Institute of Shipbuilding and Arctic Marine Engineering (Sevmashvtuz) as a part of Northern (Arctic) Federal University named after M.V. Lomonosov was established on 1 July 2012 based on the branch «SEVMASHVTUZ» of FSFEI HPE «State Marine Technical University of St. Petersburg» in Severodvinsk .

Currently, The Institute of Shipbuilding and Arctic Marine Engineering is a leading educational institution of Severodvinsk’s scientific educational cluster of NArFU and the only in the Far North of European part of Russia institution of higher education with wide technical profile providing training of specialists for enterprises of JSC "United shipbuilding Corporation" in the fields of shipbuilding, mechanical engineering, tool engineering, Economics and management of shipbuilding production.

Established in 1965, Sevmashvtuz during all the years of its existence trained specialists for the shipbuilding industry by a unique system of education — the "Plant-University" which is a combination of theoretical study and production work of students at the basic enterprises in accordance with the profile of specialty or direction of training.

For the period from 1965 to present, Sevmashvtuz has trained technical personnel to ensure the needs of production in the field of military shipbuilding and marine engineering for civilian use.

Today, graduates of Sevmashvtuz occupy leading positions in leadership in the shipbuilding industry.

The institute adopted a multi-level system of training.

Our graduates receive state diplomas. The training is done by full-time (day), part-time (evening) and correspondence courses. Students with secondary education of corresponding profile can use accelerated programs.

The Institute consists of four academic and laboratory buildings, a sports complex and a student hostel. The total area of all buildings is more than 30,000 square meters. The Institute is equipped with modern equipment. There are more than 300 personal computers that are connected to each other in a computer network integrated into the global network “Internet”. It also has a state-of-the-art language lab, copy machines, digital projectors, and multimedia classrooms.

The University provides a hostel for nonresident applicants (for the period of entrance exams) and full-time students.

The main goal of our institution is to become the center of innovative and technological development of the Arctic. The Institute of Shipbuilding and Arctic Marine Engineering will become a training center for world-class specialists in the design, production and repair of ships and high-tech marine equipment. The deep knowledge that students receive should make a great contribution to the technological breakthrough of the Russian shipbuilding industry.

The Institute is the legal successor of Sevmashvtuz, a branch of the St. Petersburg State Maritime Technical University, which trained highly qualified personnel for the world's largest shipbuilding industrial complexes.

Continuity and development is our motto! We managed to preserve the entire faculty, the unique system of engineering education – “plant – university", the educational and scientific traditions of Sevmashvtuz, which became part of the Northern (Arctic) Federal University – a national project for the modernization and innovative development of modern engineering education.
