Currently the main goal of the University is training of highly skilled engineers, research and educational personnel as well as to promote the provision of advanced research and development in the interests of machine engineering industry and the defense industrial complex of Russia.
MSTU "STANKIN" is the basic organization of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation in the technological direction “General Machine Engineering Technology” of the Federal target program “National technological base” for a period of 2007-2011.
MSTU "STANKIN" is the main developer in the Federal target sub – program “The development of domestic machine engineering and tool – and – die industry” for a period of 2011 – 2016, and also the basic organization of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia in this sub-program.
MSTU "STANKIN" is also the basic stakeholder of the “Science” working group under the Ministry of Industry and Trade Commission of the Russian Federation which is authorized to purchase foreign – made machine tools by the Federal Budget of the Russian Federation.
Eventually, MSTU "STANKIN" is the main Russian analytical center to execute monitoring of the machine engineering industry in Russia.
Priority subject areas of educational, research and innovation activity of MSTU "STANKIN" are:
- realization technology of machinery production;
- technological means in machinery manufacturing;
- information technology of machinery production management and support of all stages of the life cycle of engineering products;
- technologies to ensure ecological compatibility, energy efficiency and engineering safety of machinery manufacturing;
- technologies to ensure economic efficiency of machine-building enterprises.
In 2008 the Government of the Russian Federation came up with an initiative solution to found the State Engineering Center in MSTU «STANKIN». Today this organization executes more than 90% over all research, development and technological projects in the university. The State Engineering Center is the head organization which ensures scientific and technical progress in Russian machine building industry and technological re – equipment to reach its key strategic sectors.
