This program gives a wide range of options to choose the specialization form and, on the other hand, it is based on modern and traditional approaches of materials development: Thermodynamics, Kinetics, Phase diagrams.
The key advantages of the program
The focused scientific track
For each student, we form a scientific and educational track based on his research interests, which allows him to concentrate on scientific work and deepen the required knowledge in particular disciplines.
Effective research supervision
Research work under the supervision of senior staff includes theoretical and experimental studies, publications in scientific journals, presentations and conferences for young scientists. Thus, supervisors encourage students to work and plan independently, give support and guidance, providing continuous motivation throughout the program. Students can also choose the supervisor based on their research topic and professional experience.
Students work in teams for industrial projects and collaborate with scientists and students from other universities. In terms of scientific work, students have direct access to the latest advances in the development of alloys and use modern scientific equipment and specialized software during their research.
Publications in the first-quartile journals
Students actively publish their research papers, as well as co-authored articles in scientific journals with a high impact factor. We invite leading scientists as reviewers, and we also help students to increase the Hirsch index.
Throughout the program, students participate in research projects for industrial companies.The alumni pursue successful careers in nuclear, aerospace, and automotive industries, new materials research in Russia, Europe, USA, China and other countries.
courses in the fields of material science: thermodynamics and kinetics, mechanical properties, corrosion, magnetic properties, etc.
