Samarkand State Architectural and Civil Engineering Institute was established in 1966.  Its 31 departments are organized into 6 faculties, (or colleges), which provide instruction to more than 1,300 undergraduate and graduate students. The faculties are as follows: Architecture, Construction, Management, Ecology, Construction Technology, and Pedagogical Technology.


SamSACEI also houses schools for Business and International Business.  Recently, a Business Incubator program was launched with a mandate to improve small business practices in Uzbekistan  - the result of a partnership between the national government and the United Nations Organization. The program, conducted in English rather than Uzbek or Russian, offers instruction in the following areas: economics, business management, and finance and banking.  Soon SamSACEI also expects to open an architectural college with a grant from UNESCO’s fund for “Repair of architectural monuments and reconstruction of historical cities”.  The Institute also plans to offer a graduate program in Economics and Fine Arts.


Research areas at SamSACEI include: "Soil mechanics, composition, and foundations of buildings", "Architecture of buildings", "Heating gas provision, conditioning and protection of air pools", "Sewerage and water supply systems: protection and effective utilization", "Environmental protection",  "Reinforced concrete and stone-brick construction", "Metal, wood and plastic construction", "Construction and theoretical mechanics", "Resistance of materials", "Construction producing technologies".


SamSACEI’s graduate students have research interests in 19 subject areas, including: "Deformation solid substances mechanics", "Gas and fluid mechanics", "Buildings and their construction", "Architecture theory and history", "Restoration of architectural monuments", "Water supply and ecology", "Soil mechanics, basis and schemes", "Geodesy & land cadastre".  Doctoral thesis subjects have included, "Water supply & environment protection", "The theory and history of architecture of architectural monuments", "Liquid & plasma mechanics".

The Institute has pursued projects in collaboration with the following institutions: Politechnico de Milano University of Italy, The Veimar Architectural and Construction Institute of Germany, Technics University of Barcelona, La Kambre Architectural Institute of Belgium, and others.
