In the 60s, active development of Brest began. In this regard, an educational institution specializing in construction was urgently needed here. And in 1966 the Brest Civil Engineering Institute began its activity. In the same year, 334 students enrolled in full-time education.
The university began active infrastructure development. Thus, already in 1969, an educational building, sports facilities and a park were built on the basis of the university.
The teaching staff was replenished due to the transfer of specialists from neighboring universities of the BSSR and other republics. In 1966, the teaching staff consisted of only 32 people.
In subsequent years, the university opened new faculties and specialties. Thus, in 1967 - construction and architecture faculties, in 1969 - agricultural and evening faculties, in 1971 - irrigation and drainage faculty.
Students took an active part in the educational and construction process. Their duties included the improvement of the territory of the institute and the city. The students built such sights as "Brest Hero Fortress", "Gormolzavoda", etc.
In the 1990s, the university was renamed and reorganized more than once. In 2000, the university was reorganized into the Brest State Technical University. Since 2005, the university understands the importance of the IT sphere in the modern world, so the faculty of electronic information systems is opening here.
