    About the University

    The Moscow University of Printing Arts is over 65 years old. Back in 1930 Moscow Institute of Graphic Arts was established on the basis of the two faculties of graphic arts: Moscow and Leningrad Highest State Art and Technical Workshops. In 1941 the Institute for Editing and Publishing was attached to the university. The growth of the printing industry in the 1950s created a demand to reinforce training and retraining of qualified personnel. This promoted the development of the university. The university grew into one of the largest higher educatio-nal establishments in the country. The number of students and teachers increased, and the profiles of the specialties were defined more precisely.

    The year of 1961 saw the establishing of the Division for Improving Professional Skills.

    In 1965 the branch of the Institute was established in Leningrad, which is the St. Petersburg Affiliated Institute of Moscow State University of' Printing Arts now. The year of 1970 saw the establishing of Preparatory Faculty and Faculty for Improving Professional Skills for those employed in the printing industry. The Qualification Councils of the National High Attestation Commission, which awards degrees of Doctor or Candidate of Science, have been active at the univer-sity since 1965.

    In 1987 a publishing house, intended mainly to meet the requirements of the stu-dy process and research work at the institute, appeared within the framework of Moscow Institute of Graphic Arts.

    In recent years some production units have been established as well. Gradual transformation and extension of duties of the Institute have led to the change in its status: in 1992 it was reorganized to become an Academy, and in 1997 it became the University of Printing Arts.
