The laboratory has been operating since June 25, 2018, when the Senate of RTU decided to establish a Scientific Laboratory of Sports Technology (STSZL) and subordinate it to the Vice-Rector for Science of RTU. Subsequently, a decision was made to establish an Multidisciplinary Sports Technologies Laboratory (STSZL) and to include it in the Institute of Mechanics and Mechanical Engineering (MMI) of the FMETA from 18 December 2018.

The aim of the STSZL laboratory is to develop new and innovative solutions in the field of sports technology and mechanics.

The main tasks of the laboratory are: to study the technological problems of different sports, their mechanics; to perform experimental tests; to develop theoretical and experimentally-theoretical process models; attract contract work; to prepare and submit local and international research project applications in the field of Sports Technologies; to promote cooperation between RTU and production industry; to attract new master's and doctoral students by assigning them research in the field of Sports Mechanics. STSZL laboratory actively cooperates with many RTU departments, including RTU Design Factory.

STSZL invites industry and sports companies and organizations, as well as athletes, to work together to address current industry challenges. We also invite students to participate in STSZL research.
