Brief information about the university

On June 1, 1930 the Lesnoy Institute was opened, and already 4 years later it was renamed into the Belarusian Lesotechnical Institute. In 1935, the Institute was named after S. M. Kirov. At the beginning of World War II the Institute was evacuated to Sverdlovsk, and in 1946 it moved to Minsk.
