Advanced Technical Education in The Soviet Union
The first technical school in Russia, the Moscow School of Mathematical and Naval Science, was founded by Peter the Great in 1701. It was followed in 1773 by the St. Petersburg Mining School, subsequently renamed the Mining Institute, which came to play an important part in the development of advanced technical education. However, development was very slow in Czarist days, and in 1914–15 there were still only 18 advanced technical colleges in the whole of Russia, most of them in Moscow and St. Petersburg, with a total of 24,900 students.
