Tomsk Polytechnic University designed a system of physical and technical education, which is based on a unique academic and engineering foundation. It allows training professionals equally qualified in research and industrial issues. Moreover, according to the THE World University Ranking by subject Physical Sciences is one of the TOP-5 Russian and the TOP-150 international universities. The close collaboration with major research and industrial centers assists to train specialists for a wide range of enterprises of the nuclear fuel cycle and energy industries, engineering, and other high-tech industries. They will be able to:

  • apply and develop new methods of experimental studies of structures and properties of condensed substances
  • work at enterprises engaged in the production of high-tech products, requiring application of plasma and radiation technologies
  • conduct operation, preventive maintenance, diagnostics of technical condition, and repair measures of equipment of enterprises for the liquefaction of natural gas

Along with its own training facility, the Master program uses the facility of the University international R&D laboratories and centers, and even the Research Nuclear Reactor of Tomsk Polytechnic University. This integration of the students in real science allows training and practicing their real skills, important for the following professional activities either in industries or in research domain.
