Basing on results of the presentations and schoolrecords of participants the board selects a group of students to admit to Bauman Moscow State TechnicalUniversity without taking an entrance examination.

Student microsatellite project

July 26, 2006. The "Dnepr" rocket with 18 satellites onboard falled down in a Kazakh desert from the 150 km height due to the abnormal working of its engine.That was the very begining as well as the disappointing unpredictable end of "Baumanets" space mission. This satellite was developed and assembled in the close cooperation and participation of BMSTU students and post-graduates. This project showed the practical meaning of such cooperation for educational goals. Thus, this project will be continued and perhaps in the nearest future we'll be able to see the renewed version of "Baumanets" - "Baumanets-M"!
