Training engineers in Mordovia started in 1957, when simultaneously with the opening of the Mordovia State University was created by the engineering department, which consisted of separation, “Industrial and civil construction.” In 1962 he was made the first issue of Civil Engineers and in the same year, was organized by the Civil Engineering Department. A special role in the construction of education belongs to the first dean of the engineering faculty Valentin Antonovich Kartashov (1960-1961gg.) And Sergei Onisimovichu Levkova (1963-1971gg.)

Over 45 years of its existence the Faculty has trained about 6000 engineers. Our graduates work in the State Assembly and the Government of RM, the administration of various cities, heads of major construction and design organizations of different ownership forms, engineering and technical personnel and road building organizations and industrial enterprises, the structures of the housing and communal services. Many of our graduates go into science and work as teachers in our department, and in other universities. Suffice it to say that within the walls of the building department were trained: Chairman of the Government of the Republic of Mordovia, VD Volkov, head of the administration of city district Saransk VF Sushkov, Chairman of the Board of Deputies of city district Saransk NF Burnaykin, Minister of Construction and Architecture of RM EA Terel, CEO of FSI “Russian Scientific Research Institute of Economy and Labour” NP Medical Pashin, first deputy chief of VG GOSUKS PM Makhaev, First Deputy General Director of State Unitary Enterprise “The development of the Moscow region” VF Zhidkin, General Director of JSC “Mordovnefteprodukt” II Merkushkin, President of “Design and Construction Holding Company” Saranskstroyzakazchik “AI Merkushkin, Deputy Director of JSC “Mordovpromstroy” PI Mezhnyakov, General Director of JSC “Mordovglavsnab” NA Turks, General Director of JSC “Remstroy” AN Schemerov, Director of OOO “Mezhregiongaz” by RM P.

In subsequent years, progress in the organization of educational and scientific activities of the faculty associated with the work of deans, VP Selyaeva (1976 – 1989), LN Mirthlessly (1989 – 1992), NM Kuznetsova (1992 – 2002) and heads of departments and faculty members. During this period, were discovered by specialty, “Highways and airports,” “Urban Construction and Management.”

From 2002 to the present dean of the faculty is the VT Erofeev. At this time, taking into account the need for specialists in the field of Architecture and Construction Economics at the Faculty opened new specialty: “Architecture”, “Design of architectural environment”, “The Art of Interior,” “Economics and Management (in construction).” Faculty of Civil Engineering was renamed in Architecture and Civil Engineering.

Currently, the department operates nine departments: Applied Mechanics (Head of Department. VD Cherkasov), constructions (Head of Department. Selya VP), building materials and technologies (Head of Department. VT Erofeev), architecture (Head of Department. Vavilin VF), roads and special engineering structures (Head of Department. BM Lupa), Engineering and Computer Graphics (Head of Department. Astashov AM) Architectural Engineering and Design (Head of Department. Makhaev VB), interior art (Head of Department. Cherushova NV), Economics and Management in Construction (Head of Department. Boriskin AS).

At the departments formed a hard-working, creative thinking teaching staff. 105 teachers are working here, of which 3, Corresponding Member of Russian Academy of Architecture and Building Sciences, 8 doctors and 70 candidates.
