Belarusian State Academy of Communications

History of the Belarusian State Academy of Communications

The history of the university began in 1910, when the School of supervisors and qualified communications employees was opened in Minsk. In those days, the national economy was actively developing, which required the provision of communication facilities. Minsk needed highly qualified communication specialists.

After 20 years, the Minsk Electrotechnical School of Communications (METS) was opened on the site of the school. Here they trained specialists and developed training plans, some of which are relevant to this day.

During the Second World War, the building of the technical school suffered greatly, only fragments of the walls remained from it. Therefore, the METS was restored almost from scratch.

Already in the 50s, construction of a new building began. Experts have almost completely recreated the previous building of the technical school. The builders, together with the students and teaching staff, rebuilt the building of the technical school and the hostel.

After the restoration, the technical school breathed new life. Sports sections, literary and choral circles began to open, and the Great Patriotic War Museum became the main asset.

Students took an active part in the social and cultural life of the technical school, and the tradition of internal volleyball tournaments has been preserved to this day.

Over time, the technical school was replenished with new staff, and at the same time, educational and methodological support was developing. New specialties were opened, and training was carried out according to the plan of the best teachers. After graduation, specialists found jobs in government organizations or in different cities of the USSR.

In 1977, foreign applicants began to be invited to the technical school. The institution of education began to visit teachers and employees of universities from 47 countries of the world.

For all the time, students and teaching staff have won not a single award, both republican and international.

In 2009, the technical school published the first edition of the student newspaper "College Bulletin". Issues began to appear every month, and then she was awarded the diploma "The best newspaper of the college" among all educational institutions of the Republic of Belarus.

In 2015, the technical school was renamed into the Belarusian State Academy of Communications.
