IME is one of the largest centers of automobile education in Russia. IME continues the traditions of the TSU Automechanical Institute. Students participate in the work of two student design offices – "CAD" and "Automobiles". The Student Research Bureau "Safety" was created. IME is also known for its participation in the unique international project "Formula Student". Representatives of the IME faculty organized and registered Togliatti regional office of the Association of Engineering Education in Russia, which is together with 14 European countries a co-founder of European Network for Accreditation of Engineering Education (ENAEE). Two IME educational programs have already been awarded the European mark of quality the "EUR-ACE" label. IME is the best automobile education in the region, dynamic scientific activity, highly qualified teachers and guaranteed employment of graduates!

ENAEE authorises accreditation and quality  assurance agencies to award the EUR-ACE® (EURopean- ACcredited  Engineer) label to their accredited.
