One can hardly find a place in Russia with such an impressive number of implemented national projects as in the Krasnoyarsk Territory. Our most focused “development points” have been determined in industry, power engineering and energy, research and education. Siberian Federal University, as a response to regional developmental challenges, was established in 2006 to train highly qualified specialists capable of working in any region of our country, including severe conditions of the Northern areas.
The University was founded by merging 5 major Krasnoyarsk institutions of higher education. Among the members of the University Board of Trustees there are representatives of large companies, politicians and scientists. The Chairman of the Board is Dmitry Medvedev, the Prime Minister of Russia.

Building accompanies people from the time immemorial. We built, are building and will build bridges, buildings and facilities, airports, roads and many other things. Builders are a head of any processes and advance in any industry or area, for in any spot of the World you will first of all see the results of their work as tourist attractions — unique monuments of architecture.

Main our goal is to provide the students with all the necessary knowledge and teach them thinking creatively, develop their ability of critical thinking and conscious perception of the new and support their professional development.

The beginning of construction engineering education in Krasnoyarsk Territory dates back to 1956, when the first students were enrolled for the major “Industrial and Civil Construction”. Then as construction industry grew in the region, in 1981 the decision on foundation of the University of Engineering and Construction in Krasnoyarsk was taken. Then in 1995 this successful institution was renamed into Krasnoyarsk Academy of Architecture and Construction. In 2006 the Government of the Russian Federation made a decision to merge four Krasnoyarsk Institutions of Higher Education and established “Siberian Federal University”, and so in the frames of SibFU School of Urban Planning and Construction, Management and Regional Economy was formed, which was reorganized in 2010 and divided into three separate schools, one of which was School of Engineering and Construction. As time passed in these 30 years our School proved its status of a sustainable partner and respected and recognized institution by improving our facilities and equipment, establishing educational and research laboratories, accrediting new majors for training engineers and highly-qualified staff.

Siberian Federal University occupies a special place in the development plans of the Krasnoyarsk Territory. Intellectual center of the “big Krasnoyarsk” must have an appropriate infrastructure, so initially it was envisaged to establish the university campus. It covers an area of 650 hectares, the venue includes 26 study and laboratory buildings and 29 dormitories. Some of them have been built with an active participation of private business and the territory. So, an electronic library of SibFU opened its doors in 2008. Library users have access to more than 50 million electronic books and documents. SibFU library resources are available not only for students, but also for all residents of the territory. In addition, it is connected to 100% schools and colleges of the Krasnoyarsk Territory.

The university campus in Krasnoyarsk includes 29 dormitories, 24 study buildings, a building accommodating the library and the university administration offices. A University Assembly Hall is to be put into operation in 2015.

Krasnoyarsk has been nominated as the host city for the Winter Universiade in 2019. The Universiade Village will be located at the University campus which is favourably close to the main winter sports venue Academy of Winter Spots. The Universiade infrastructure is partly in place, while the following facilities are yet to be built by 2018:

  • a multifunctional sports centre;
  • a first-aid medical centre for athletes;
  • a complex of residence halls “Universitetsky” (three 18-storey buildings);
  • a complex of residence halls “Perya” (“Feathers”) (four 17-storey buildings).


Krasnoyarsk is a city in Russia, the largest cultural, economic, industrial, and educational center of Central and Eastern Siberia, the capital of Krasnoyarsk krai (the second largest region in Russia). It is the largest of the ancient cities of Siberia.

Krasnoyarsk experiences a humid continental climate. Its climate in July and January is very similar to that of Fort McMurray and Winnipeg in Canada, the latter of which is a good deal further south geographically. Compared to Thompson, Manitoba, or Labrador City at similar latitudes, Krasnoyarsk’s winters are relatively mild. Compared to European cities on a similar latitude, Krasnoyarsk has much warmer summers, but much colder and longer winters (for example, Aalborg, Denmark). The summer is also on average warmer than similar inland latitudes of Scandinavia, owing to Siberia‘s greater continentality. Krasnoyarsk has high differentials between summer and winter temperatures.
