Grozny State Oil Technical University is truly considered a unique educational institution. It is not just because of the proud history of the University, which began in 1920 – today it is one of the oldest both of nation and in the world specialized oil University, which has evolved from College into University.
The educational establishment, which later was to become the main talent foundry for the national oil industry, was created not just "from scratch". In the first years of Soviet era in the aftermath of the Civil war, it was built, rather, “from remains” of the oil industry, which at the beginning of the last century in Grozny was ran mainly by foreign expats. After the revolution, most of them left the country. So, according to historical documents, out of 250 engineers and technicians who worked in the oil fields and plants of Grozny until the end of 1917, only a few dozen remained by the beginning of 1920. Out of 831 usable wells 80 were operating at that time, and none of the six refineries worked. In addition, leaving Grozny, the owners the plants destroyed and/or took away all the geological and technological documentation.
The university is continuously developing and has already declared itself as one of the most rapidly developing scientific and intellectual centers in Russia. Currently, our university trains highly qualified personnel in various specialties and areas, carries out relevant research, introduces innovative technologies and develops its own academic schools.
