The first group of petroleum engineers graduated in 1924. In 1930 the
Faculty of Petroleum Engineering was organized, and on
April 17, 1930 the Moscow Mining Academy was reorganized into six higher
educational institutions. The new Moscow Institute of Oil, which grew out
of the Oil Faculty, was named in honor of Academician I. M. Gubkin, who
became its first rector. Thus, by the early 1930s, training of petroleum
engineers had become an independent branch within higher education.
Many of the Mining Academy alumni of 1924-1930, such as M. Charygin,
I. Muravyov, F. Trebin, A. Serdy, I. Polyakov, I. Gurevich, N. Shatsov
became noted scholars and headed faculties and departments of the new institute.
Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas, Russia’s principal
higher educational institute of petroleum engineering, has now been
in existence for almost 75 years. Gubkin University follows the best
traditions of the national higher education system. The University today
offers training in 15 majors, including 26 specialties and 39 scientific
areas of specialization and had trained over 70 000 diploma engineers, candidates and
doctors of science, many of whom are presently top executives of oil
and gas companies.
