Overview

National Research Lobachevsky State University of Nizhny Novgorod was founded on January 31, 1916 as one of the People’s Universities of Soviet Russia and was the first higher education institution in Nizhny Novgorod.

In 1945, our university was the first in the country to establish its Faculty of Radiophysics, and in 1956,  Research Institute for Radiophysics. The same year, the University was named after Nikolai Lobachevsky, a great Russian mathematician born in Nizhny Novgorod. The country’s first Faculty of Computational Mathematics and Cybernetics was founded at Lobachevsky University in 1963. It was followed by the Research Institute for Applied Mathematics and Cybernetics one year later. 

In 2009, Lobachevsky University was awarded a prestigious status of a National Research University.
