  • Life at TPU


Currently, the materials science is one of the most important scientific domains, which results are used in many areas of our life - aerospace industry, nuclear industry, IT, medicine, and many others. The program is aimed to train highly qualified specialists, able to participate in the development of modern high technologies, new materials, and implement them into the production process. Along with this, the program pays attention to advanced knowledge in the fields of new materials and the development of new nanomaterials and coatings. Tomsk Polytechnic University actively cooperates with international research institutions, laboratories, and universities. To give the students real skills, the program uses advanced laboratory facilities of Institute of Strength Physics and Materials Science of Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences and TPU Nano-center, where they can work and conduct their research.
