Overview

Samara National Research University named after academician S.P. Korolev (Samara University) is one of the leading institutions of higher education in Russia. In 2015, it amalgamated collectives from the aerospace (SGAU) and classical (SamGU) universities, becoming the rightful heir to their illustrious achievements and traditions.

For many years now, the university has been inextricably linked to the overall industrial and economic development of Samara Region, one of the leading domestic and global centers of aerospace technologies. 

Scientists, experts and graduates of Samara University are proactively engaged in the elaboration and manufacturing of the latest specimens of Russian aviation and space-rocket machinery. 

It was in Samara that dedicated efforts led to the creation of the legendary R7 rocket (the “Semyorka”), which was used to launch the first Earth-orbiting satellite and the world’s first-ever manned spaceflight. 

Today, Samara is the burgeoning home to all manner of cutting-edge space equipment. This equipment includes rocket propulsion systems, manmade Earth-orbiting satellites and, of course, the most reliable family of booster rockets in the history of space exploration – the Soyuz. In the second decade of the twenty-first century, the Soyuz rockets emerged as the only way to send relief crews to the International Space Station.
