The development of space research is a priority around the world. Humanity has always dreamed of near and long-distance flights into space and to other planets of the solar system.

Technology created for space concentrates everything the most advanced, from design decisions to the choice of new materials and technologies. While designers can find technical solutions with the help of computer modeling, the implementation of these solutions requires the development of new materials and innovative technologies. Without materials and technology, the ideas of designers will remain on paper, will not be implemented. Materials and technologies come first in the modern development of science and technology.

Space technology use new processes of casting, stamping, welding, machining, assembly. Advances in materials science and space technology go further and are successfully used in all industries: metallurgy, automotive, electrical, oil and gas and others.

Such advanced technology is represented and developed at Samara University. There are several technological science schools functioning here. The university is one of the top ten universities in Russia.

With advanced experience, Samara University organizes a two-week international online school "Space Materials and Technologies". One of the most outstanding scientists will lead you online to the insights of laboratories and show you machines and satellites that were created here in Samara University and now are applied all over the world.
