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.
About 6000 students study at the university today, Over 400 teachers take care of the study process using new and most effective methods of teaching. Among them 65 persons are Doctors of Science, 227 persons are readers and Candidate of Science, 292 persons have academic ranks and degrees.
The university as a scientific institution is carrying out many research programmes in the following directions:
The university disposes of the libraries with a teaching stock of about 2 million copies, which are available for students free of charge and include scien-tific and teaching literature, reference books, normative and technical docu-mentation, dissertations on different kinds of information carriers; as well as of the up-to-date research and technical capabilities, which inclu-de computer classes, teaching laboratories with modern printing machinery of brand name vendors, such as Heidelberg, Stahl, Bacher, Greta£-Macbeth, DuPont and others.
