The Engineering Academy of Tajikistan was established in 1991, initially as a branch of the USSR Engineering Academy. On July 3, 1992, the academy was registered with the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Tajikistan as the Engineering Academy of the Republic of Tajikistan (IART).
IART is a public, scientific, technical, creative organization that unites, on an elective basis, the leading part of the republic’s scientists and engineers to strengthen ties between fundamental research, technical developments, advanced technologies and production in order to promote the sustainable economic development of Tajikistan.
IART is part of the International Academy of Engineering (IEA) and the Federation of Engineering Institutes of Islamic Countries. IART is a member of the Council of Public Accord of the Republic of Tajikistan.
IART is one of the leading engineering, technical and scientific associations of Tajikistan, which includes full members (academicians), corresponding members, academic advisers, doctors and candidates of science, honored workers of science and technology of Tajikistan, authors of numerous patents for inventions.
In the 90s, within the framework of IART, the Sugran group, led by academician A.V. Vakhobov, F.U. Obidov, A.H. Kataev, successfully worked on the analysis and production of high-purity aluminum. Under the leadership of full member of the IART K.A.
