Nevinnomyssk Institute of Technology (branch of North-Caucasus Federal University)

Nevinnomyssk Institute of Technology (branch of Federal State Autonomous Educational Institution for Higher Professional Education (FSAEI HPE) North-Caucasus Federal University) began its activity in 1965 as a study support center of Krasnodar Polytechnic Institute.


In 1969 the Stavropol branch of the Krasnodar Polytechnic Institute obtains status of the Stavropol Polytechnic Institute, and in 1973 it opened general technical faculty in Nevinnomyssk. In 1981 the general technical faculty was transformed into a branch of the Stavropol Polytechnic Institute, then in 1994 it was renamed into Nevinnomyssk branch of Stavropol State Technical University. In 1997 the branch obtained the status of an Institute, and in 1999 it was renamed into Nevinnomyssk Institute of Technology (branch of North-Caucasus State Technical University (NCSTU). The status of an Institute was a powerful impetus for further progress. In 2001 the Institute became multidisciplinary. In 2012 due to the establishment of the North-Caucasus Federal University the Institute became a branch of the North-Caucasus Federal University.

Our mission

The Institute has a multi-level training structure. The training provides for two levels of education: Bachelor's degree with a standard term of 4 years; Master's program with a standard term of 2.5 years.

The quality of education today is largely determined by the four main components:

  • the level of qualifications of teachers;
  • the level of educational technologies used;
  • level of R&D and students’ research activities;
  • the level of potential opportunities for students.

The Institute employs 54 teachers, including 5 Doctors of Science, Professors; 32 Candidates of Sciences, Associate Professors; 12 teachers from among the current leaders and employees of respective companies. Four employees of the Institute have the title of Honored Worker of Higher Professional Education of the Russian Federation among other high titles and degrees.

  • Research on the grant of the President of the Russian Federation Theoretical bases of construction of modular PID-regulators;
  • Two RFBR grants for the publishing project on the topic Publication of the book THE USE OF ARTIFICIAL NEURAL NETWORKS AND THE RESIDUAL CLASS SYSTEM IN CRYPTOGRAPHY

From 2013 to 2015 Teachers of the Institute received: Russian patents – 18, certificates of official registration of computer programs – 31. Most of the research lies within technical sciences (80.6%).


Research by students

Research in the Institute is carried out at the departments, as well as in the scientific divisions of the Institute. The Institute annually a scientific works contest for students where the winners are awarded diplomas and certificates.

To develop the material and technical base of scientific research and the scientific infrastructure of the Institute, expensive scientific equipment was purchased for the laboratories and departments of the Institute in view of the technical and technological specifics of the NCFD, Russian and international markets, and performing research in the following areas:

Development of production technologies for new grades of mineral fertilizers

Research and creation of a recipe for the production of modern organic products, including polymer materials

Development of methods, devices and systems for technical support and equipment modernization.

International activity

Integration into the international scientific and educational space is done through the establishment of partnership relations with the Abkhaz State University and the Belarusian State Technological University, which carry out activities in similar areas of training. This cooperation implies

  • entering cooperation agreements
  • inviting foreign teachers and researchers from the partner-universities to deliver lectures to students
  • improving the competence & qualifications of the teaching staff
  • involvement in joint projects aimed at creation of modern production technologies and analytical control of the technological mode for obtaining mineral fertilizers

In the academic year 2016-2017, 16 foreign students from the CIS countries entered the Institute.

Educational activity

The high quality of the student body is determined by the diversity of social competencies (Russian civil identity, patriotism, legal culture, the culture of interethnic and interfaith interaction, the culture of a safe and healthy way of life, etc.) instilled in the students not only by involving them in appropriate educational activities yet also in the course of the learning process within the framework of mastering the disciplines of choice.
