SFedU History

 

Southern Federal University (SFedU), along with Siberian Federal University, was founded as the pilot project of new federal universities establishments. Currently, there are only ten federal universities in Russia. SFedU embraces four former higher educational establishments of the Rostov region: Rostov State University tracing back to 1915 the year Imperial Warsaw University was transferred to the city of Rostov; Rostov State Teachers’ Training University formed in 1930 out of the Teachers’ Training Faculty within North Caucasian University; Taganrog State Radio Engineering University founded in 1952; and Rostov State Academy of Architecture and Art formed in 1988 on the basis of the Faculty of Architecture within Rostov Civil Engineering Institute.

 

In July 2010, Southern Federal University acquired the status of an autonomous educational institution. Greater autonomy will enable SFedU to increase the efficiency of student training and research work as well as to improve the mechanisms of university administration.
