    International Summer School “Build Your Future” 

The International Summer School “Build Your Future” welcomes all students of disciplines related to civil engineering, urban planning, architecture, sustainable engineering, energy saving and energy efficiency of buildings, housing and utilities system and others international students who are interested in the topic of the course.

The course consists of three modules: "Russian language" module for all students and one module of choice - "Architecture & urbanism" or "Sustainable engineering". The course language is English.

Our two-week course is perfect to gain professional knowledge and to learn/to improve the Russian language basics at the same time. 

Module "Russian language"

The course aims to improve listening, reading, writing and speaking skills, practice and expand students’ vocabulary and knowledge of grammar and phonetics.

Students can start intensive Russian courses without any knowledge or can improve their Russian language skills. The course is offered on all levels and starts with a baseline test.  According to the test results language groups are formed in accordance with the European system of knowledge levels: elementary, basic, first certification.

Contents of the module: Russian as a foreign language, Russian speaking and listening, Russian Communication Skills, Russian for Academic Purposes.

Module "Architecture & urbanism"

Module "Sustainable engineering"

Moscow is one of the biggest megacities in the world. It is a huge & complicated structure, composed of different layers including transport, public, residential & industrial zones, recreational areas, water bodies and so on. Their interaction in addition to social & economic aspects makes the city work. The points of the layers intersection provide a lot of possibilities to develop the city environment, but at the same time this complexity becomes the source of additional difficulties.

Summer school in Moscow offers to conduct the unique survey on the relevant problems of the contemporary capital city.

It is possible to get involved into one of three main topics:  

1.       Resources & reserves (an analysis & estimation of urban intensification, reserves usage inside the existing borders against the expanding city policy & exploiting of the free space as a resource);

2.       Heritage (an analysis of the city centre architectural environment, existing historical development, an estimation of its consistency & potential, proposal of promotion & evolution strategies);

3.       Commuter belt (an analysis & estimation of possible development strategies of peripheral commuter districts, new qualities of the microdistrict urban environment).

In addition to the general program summer school provides various lecture & excursion activities: contemporary architecture of Moscow, moscow art nouveau architecture, architecture of Russian contructivism in Moscow, religious architecture of Moscow, Russian art of the 20th century, city palaces of Moscow, the history & evolution of Moscow masterplan, the problems of the historical heritage in contemporary city.

The module is maintained by experienced lecturers, practicing architects & urban planners. The main course objective is to show the relation between the city structure and the possible quality of its environment, to generate fresh ideas on the city potential revelation.

MGSU comprises the best practices in green construction, energy efficient solutions and smart resources management. Our professors and researches are well known in Russia and abroad, they conduct research at state of the art laboratories. During the module you will be able to familiarize yourself with sustainable engineering paradigm in Russia and to work on interesting tasks to create green, smart, and energy efficient solutions for construction industry. You will have an opportunity to visit unique facilities, and see an actual implementation of different technologies for rational use of resources and energy saving with region specific approach.

    The module includes four main topics:

1.       Energy efficient technologies on the scale from single household to megacities (water saving trends, indoor water conservation tools and equipment; production, consumption and energy savings in Russia; thermal performance of buildings; home energy audit; comfortable environment in the house; heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems; energy efficient technologies for water conservation and reuse);

2.       BIM-technologies for design of construction and reconstruction of water and waste water facilities.

3.       Modern building materials to be applied for the facilities of water supply and waste water treatment in case of construction and reconstruction.

The participants of Summer school will be divided into several groups to create concept of ideal house of the future – saving money, resources and energy, comfortable and easy operated.

In addition to the general program summer school provides excursion activities: plant of ventilation equipment, water / wastewater treatment plant visiting, training ground of energy-efficient technologies.
