Tomsk State University of Control Systems and Radioelectronics (Russian : Томский государственный университет систем управления и радиоэлектроники, abbreviated as TUSUR) is a public university in Tomsk, Russia.


Founded in 1962, TUSUR University was formed when two faculties, the Faculty of Radio Engineering and the Faculty of Electric Radio Control, split from Tomsk Polytechnic University to create a new educational institution.

The mission of TUSUR as an entrepreneurial research university is “to create cultural, educational, research and innovative environment, ensuring achievement of success by alumni whose labor and knowledge guarantee that high technologies serve the country, society and the world”.

TUSUR is recognized nationally as one of the leading engineering universities [1] in Russia. It carries out extensive basic and applied research in the area of its expertise and maintains close links to the industry, making it one of the highest-performing research universities [2] in the country.


TUSUR was founded as Tomsk Institute of Radioelectronics and Electronic Engineering by decree of the Council of Ministers of the Soviet Union on April 21, 1962. Its goal was to train engineers and researchers for the booming radioelectronic, missile and space industries. The university was formed by splitting off two faculties of Tomsk Polytechnic University, the Faculty of Radio Engineering and the Faculty of Electric Radio Control, along with 2000 of their undergraduate and postgraduate students and 60 faculty members. The original structure of the newly founded institute included 21 departments, 9 of which were transferred from TPU, and three faculties for full-time students (Faculties of Radio Engineering, Radio Equipment and Electronic Engineering) and one faculty of extramural learning.

Initially, the university was offering 6 highly specialized degree programs, but in subsequent decades it has been differentiating its academic profile, adding engineering majors in automated control systems, physical electronics, automation of data processing, computer engineering. In 1971 the university was renamed as Tomsk Institute of Automated Control Systems and Radioelectronics.

In 1997 TUSUR obtained the status of a university, adopting its modern name. As part of the process of its continuing academic and scientific diversification, starting in the late 1990 the university opened faculties of human sciences, law, economics and innovation.

In 2006 TUSUR University won the competition among higher professional education institutions to implement innovative education program within the national priority project “Education”. In 2012 the university was selected to implement its program for strategic development in 2012—2016.


TUSUR University offers over 70 degree programs through its 13 faculties:

TUSUR University has an extensive distance learning network, over half of its student population pursuing degree programs through its Faculty of Distance Learning using web-based technologies.

Project-based learning is an actively employed teaching method in the university, used to expand and supplement the traditional lecture-based educational process, and is often cited as the key factor determining the high level of employability of TUSUR graduates. [3]

International affairs

TUSUR University ranks third among Russian universities by percentage of international students enrolled in its degree programs. [4]

The university employs the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), which encourages free movement of students and simplifies international recognition of student achievements and degrees obtained at TUSUR.

The university is a member of the CDIO Initiative - one of the few Russian universities to have joined the educational framework. [5]

TUSUR runs joint academic programs with numerous partner universities and institutions such as Ritsumeikan University in Japan, State University of New York in the US, EPITECH and the University of Limoges in France, ITRI in Tawian, International Business Academy in Kazakhstan. [6]

In its research activities, the university maintains strong international ties with companies, universities and institutes based in the US, Germany, the Netherlands, France, China.


Priority lines of research at TUSUR:

TUSUR is one of the few universities in Russia to have its own robot soccer team competing in the RoboCup championship.

Research at TUSUR University is supported by its research institutes:

The university publishes its research results in its quarterly journal Proceedings of TUSUR University. [7] The journal is listed among the leading Russian scientific journals and magazines recommended by the Higher Attestation Commission of Russia for publication of the key research findings of Candidate and Doctoral (PhD) theses in:


TUSUR University maintains close links to its alumni and spin-out companies, which form an integral part of the UNIQ.

The UNIQ is a cluster of organizations associated with TUSUR and incorporated into its business-support infrastructure. The UNIQ includes some 150 high-tech companies founded by the TUSUR alumni, 5 research institutes, 48 research laboratories, 26 student design bureaus, engineering center, technology park, student business incubator. The UNIC enterprises are responsible for 80% of the total high-tech product output in Tomsk region. [8]

In 2013 an MIT/Skoltech research named TUSUR University one of the top nine international universities “having created/supported highly effective technology innovation ecosystems despite a challenging environment”. [9]


TUSUR University has 29 active sports clubs for students, faculty and alumni interested in basketball, volleyball, ice hockey, football, boxing, dancing, finswimming and much more.

The mountaineering and tourism club of TUSUR was founded in 1962 and today has 150 active members.

The University’s rowing team is one of the strongest in Russia, its students being regular members of the Russian National Rowing Team and representing the country at the 2008 Summer Olympics. The Rowing Club of TUSUR University was founded in 1964. In 1979 the university built its own rowing tank, which as of 2016 remains the only such facility in Russia east of the Urals.

The powerlifting club at TUSUR has trained several national and world champions.


TUSUR University is the founder and organizer of the RadioBOOM festival – a series of scientific, cultural and sports events held in May in celebration of the Radio Day, which is treated as the main professional holiday for its students.

The University cultivates volunteering among its students, along with the student brigade movement which was a popular method employed by Soviet universities to engage their students in important construction or agricultural projects and offer them an opportunity to make money during their vacations. Today there are 7 student brigades at TUSUR with about 300 members.
