The State University of Land Use Planning (the SULUP) is managed by the Educational and Methodological Board. The university has the Center for Strategic Development of Agrarian Education and the Analytical Center for Academic Policy in Agribusiness.

Today the SULUP is a flagship in the development and introduction of educational standards for the main major field of study “Land Use Planning and Cadastres”

The university trains personnel for state and municipal authorities that manage land use planning in Russia.

Being a pioneer of new interdisciplinary breakthrough areas of land use planning science, the SULUP implements full-cycle research projects: from scientific ideas and fundamental research to  sales of products and services in the real sector of the economy.

The university is creating an international center for academic leadership in land use planning for delivery of new joint Bachelor’s and Master’s double degree programs with international partners.

Cluster of unmanned aerial vehicles “Sfera”

On the territory of the Chkalovskiy Agro(bio) Technological Park, the university is creating a cluster of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) “Sfera” that will have been ready by 2030. The project is aimed at:

  • training of highly qualified UAV personnel
  • aircraft certification
  • development of intelligent systems for UAV
  • monitoring based on UAV and neural network algorithm

The algorithms are expected to be developed based on computer vision for various purposes, including work on autonomous systems and monitoring of woodlands, main transport routes, and other extended objects. Besides, the UAV cluster “Sfera” is launching manufacturing, assembly, repair and maintenance of aircraft. And, in the short term, the cluster will open a youth design office, a research and training center, a conference room, and classrooms.
