The program was aimed at training specialist in the area of nuclear technology. It is one of the top national programs in the field of chemical technology of rare, scattered, and radioactive elements. The uniqueness of the program is based on in-depth and advanced knowledge of nuclear technologies and processes, high level of mathematical, engineering and natural science competencies of the students. Close collaboration with leading Russian enterprises in the field of mining and processing of rare, non-ferrous and precious metals allows students to acquire professional skills during the period of study at the University. An integral part of the training is the participation of students in research activities and the implementation of their own scientific and engineering projects. The following academic approach allows training specialists with real skills.
