    The development of modern infrastructures (both city and industrial) requires constantly increasing volumes of pipe rolling production. No construction can be complete without using steel pipes. In 1972, the rector (1965-1986) of the National University of Science and Technology MISIS (NUST MISiS) Pyotr Polukhin and professor at NUST MISiS Plastic Deformation of Special Alloys Department Ivan Potapov received a USSR State Award for a development that allowed the stability of the steel pipe screw rolling process to be increased, and lead to a boost in production volumes of hot-rolled pipes.

    Above: modern-day pipe rolling.

    One of the main objectives behind creating new scientific developments is to actively implement new technologies in practice and introduce them to enterprises. This inextricable link between science and technology also forms the foundation of the Russian system of higher education.

    University science laboratories are continuously working on new progressive solutions; the best of which receive state awards. In this photo report compiled by Rossiya Segodnya’s Social Navigator project together with the National University of Science and Technology MISiS (NUST MISiS to mark the 100th anniversary of the university), a few little-known facts about technologies that have influenced the development of various Russian industries are presented.
