Lipetsk State Technical University was founded in the year of 1956 with only 2 options of specialized training to offer. But the rapid growth of the industrial potential of the Lipetsk region alongside with the development of steel-making and engineering industries made it essential for the highly qualified labor-force to be readily available in these strategic markets.
