The founding father of the school is Vladimir Korobko, the head of PSU Department of Mechanics (before 1998), D.Sc. in Physics and Mathematics, Professor. Such discipline was successfully realized in Ph. D. theses of D. Gegers, L. Spiridyonok, S. Babadzhanov, V. Semyonov. V. Ivanov defended his Ph. D. and Doctor's degree theses in the field of creating scientific foundations for the process design of repair productions. The supervisor - professor V. Korobko.

Further development of the field is connected to the production activities of the members of V. Ivanov, V. Semyonov, A. Kastryuk, A. Krylenko, and their vehicle repair and diagnosis research school.

The field is developed since the foundation of the Department of Automobiles in 2008.
