Master program "Nanoscale structure of materials" is an interdisciplinary program combining physics, chemistry and materials science. The program is aimed to grow high-level specialists, able to perform scientific investigation on the modern experimental equipment and "mega-science" facilities: synchrotron sources and X-ray free electron lasers. The program has international certificate of Accreditation (AQUIN European Agency) and includes intense language training. Being a partner institution of the European master program MaMaSELF, we offer an internship program during the preparation of the Master thesis. The educational technology are based on the “leaning-by-doing” principle, where practical part plays the key role in the learning process. A number of courses involve participation of world leading scientists in the field of material science: prof. Vladimir Dmitriev (ESRF, Grenoble), prof. Carlo Lamberti (University of Turin, Italy), Dr. Pieter Glatzel (ESRF, Grenoble), Dr. Grigory Smolentsev (Swiss Light Source, Villigen), Prof. Oleg Farberovich (Tel Aviv University, Israel).
International students may wish to opt to participate in the SFedU grant proposal contest and receive a grant that will cover their first year of study, with the possibility of its prolongation to fund their second year of study. This contest is held annually in October for incoming foreign students.
All the obtained knowledge and skills will be nesessary to solve final practically-oriented problems. To make high-lever thesis works, master students will participate in real on-going recearch projects
Access to Mega-Science
All students have a possibility to participate in the training courses and internships in the Mega-Science facilitites such as European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (France), Swiss Light Source (Switzerland), DESY (Germany), Kurchatov Synchrotron (Moscow, Russia), and European XFEL (Germany)
