The official MAI symbol

Moscow Aviation Institute (State University of Aerospace Technology) (Russian: Московский авиационный институт), named after Sergo Ordzhonikidze, is one of several major engineering higher education establishments in Moscow (along with Moscow State University, Bauman Moscow State Technical University, Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, and Moscow Engineering Physics Institute).

Although the school is currently offering a wide range of majors and research programs well beyond just the aviation-related ones, the historical shorter name Moscow Aviation Institute is almost always used in reference to it.



First building of MAI - no. 3, 1933
Main academic building of MAI, called GUK in acronym.

The university was formed from the aviation mechanics department of another major engineering education center, BMSTU, on August 29, 1930. The main campus at the present location was established in 1933. Over the years, the school grew to become the top Russian aerospace education center, and a full-range engineering university, which was reflected in its current full official name.


MAI has been inviting foreigners to get thoroughly acquainted to its aviation field. so many students from India, China, USA, Spain, Burma, Mexico, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, UK, France, Germany, Nepal come to MAI every year to get technical exposure in every possible stream.
