The world-famous conference DyCoSS (IAA Conference on Dynamics and Control of Space Systems) was held in RUDN University in May-June, 2017. Experts from 18 countries presented the latest research results on cleaning up space from orbiting garbage, optimization of spacecraft flight trajectories, processing of satellite imagery, logistics and technology of flights to the moon, the mechanics of flights to asteroids. Beginning in 2018, the Academy will host an IAA Workshop on Space Flight Mechanics.
Academy students themselves design and construct race cars and electric bikes. The teams of RUDN University engineers participate in the competitions “Formula Student”, Formula Electric and Smart Moto Challenge in Italy, Spain, Holland, Hungary and Russia. Our students are especially strong in the categories “Safety”, “Economy”, “Ecological compatibility”. There are already 4 cars in the hangar of the academy, 2 electric bikes, and their quantity and quality is growing every year.
At the student design bureau young professionals try their hand at developing their projects from scratch, and then present them at professional exhibitions and discuss them with experts. The works of RUDN University engineers have won in competitions on energy saving, architecture, design, and business economics.
In 2006, the student of the Engineering Academy Atiensia Vilyagomes Jose Miguel (Ecuador) became the 50-thousandth graduate of the University. At present, he works in the department of mechanics and mechatronics as an Associate Professor and he is engaged in research in the field of computer-aided design systems.
Twice a year, RUDN University engineers arrange a rock festival “Rock Orjo”. There are many talents from all over the world among our students. Students themselves play and perform world hits of American, English, German, Russian and even Chinese rock bands. “Rock Orjo” is a good music, clear sound, worthy lyrics and a special atmosphere of freedom.
