Department of Foreign Languages

The department trains students of the Engineering Academy in Foreign Languages in accordance with the basic training programs. In addition, RUDN University students and third-party engineering students are taught on the program of additional professional education "Translator for Engineering Directions and Specialties", which includes in-depth study of foreign languages (English, Spanish, German and French) and mastering translation skills. The educational program "Translator" consists of several years of intensive training in foreign languages and is integrated into the educational process. Students also successfully master the skills and abilities of translation in the areas and specialties in engineering. Students who get a good grip on the program and successfully pass the qualification tests are given a translator diploma.  The department takes an active part in the work of scientific and practical conferences of various levels in cooperation with the Goethe Institute, the Instituto Cervantes, the Institute of the French Language, the Stuttgart Technical University, the University of Potsdam, the Berlin Technical University, etc.

5 Key Reasons for Choosing the Academy

Description of the Engineering Academy

The history of the Engineering Academy began in 1961, when the Engineering Department was founded in RUDN University. The Engineering Academy received its modern status in 2016 after the reorganization of the Engineering Faculty with joining some other departments.

Currently, more than 2,500 students are studying at the Engineering Academy.  About a third of students are representatives of more than 80 countries. Six educational and scientific departments, the specialized department of the enterprise JSC "Corporation" VNIIEM ", 2 language departments, 3 scientific centers are the basis of the Engineering Academy. More than 200 teachers, including more than 30 doctors of sciences, more than 100 candidates of sciences, 10 academicians and corresponding members of branch and international academies of sciences provide the educational process.

The research work of the engineering academy covers a wide range of different engineering fields - cybernetics and mechatronics, the mechanics of flight of various types of aircraft and the design of spacecraft, machine and instrument engineering, geology and mining, oil and gas business and mine surveying, architecture and construction of buildings and structures, architectural design, engineering business and management, etc.

The Engineering Academy has a modern laboratory well equipped for the preparation of highly qualified bachelors, masters and postgraduates in various areas of training. There are three scientific centers in the engineering academy: Scientific center of space robotics, nanotechnology and flight control of space vehicles, the Scientific Center for the Development of Geoinformation Technologies and the Scientific Center for Computer Modeling of Engineering Constructions and Complex Systems.

Future professional engineers learn technical aspects of their future professional activity, as well as economic fundamentals of engineering business: they develop  projects for managing innovative products in the market of high-tech products, analyze customer requests and the benefits of goods and services, calculate and assess the risks of new products under the influence of the external environment.  On graduating from the Engineering Academy, students have the opportunity to obtain an interpreter`s diploma in the field of their professional communication – ‘Translator: Engineering’.
