several institutes that train engineers in various fields such as production technology, mechanics, electromechanics, and economics.

In 1973 the USSR had 12 institutes for light and textile industry. Three specialize in production technology for light industry: the Vitebsk (founded in 1965), Kiev (1930), and Moscow (1930) institutes. Three are textile and light industry institutes: the All-Union Correspondence (1944, in Moscow), the Leningrad S. M. Kirov (1930), and the Tashkent (1932) institutes. Two, the M. V. Frunze Ivanovo (1930) and the Moscow (1919) institutes, specialize in textiles. The remaining four, the Far Eastern (1967, in Vladivostok), the Moscow (1961, founded as an institute for local industry), the Khmel’nitskii (1967), and the Shakhty (1969), specialize in technologically based domestic services. The All-Union Correspondence Institute has branches in Barnaul and Omsk, the Moscow Institute of Light Industry has a branch in Novosibirsk, and the Moscow Technological Institute for Domestic Services has branches at Leningrad and Ufa. All the institutes except the Far Eastern, Khmel’nitskii, and Shakhty have graduate courses. Doctor’s and candidate’s degrees are granted at the Moscow Textile Institute, the Moscow Technological Light Industry Institute, and at the Kiev and Leningrad institutes, and candidate’s degrees at the Ivanovo and Tashkent institutes and at the Moscow Technological Institute for Domestic Services. The training period at the institutes runs from five to six years. At the conclusion of the training, students defend their diploma project and become skilled engineers in their specialties.
