Best Educational Programs: NANOTECHNOLOGY AND MICROSYSTEM ENGINEERING
KHRUSTALYOV, Vladimir Aleksandrovich
Programme presentation. Training of specialists is carried out in direct contact with RAS Institutes and research enterprises of the region: The Institute of Semiconductor Physics of SB RAS, The Institute of Inorganic Chemistry of SB RAS, JSC “Vostok”, JSC “The Novosibirsk Semiconductor Devices Plant with the Special Design Centre”. The education is unique not only in the novelty of microsystem technology and possibilities of bachelors’ self-realization, but also in opportunities to continue education in the leading Russian and foreign HEIs.
Graduates are prepared to carry out project and management activities. Professional preferences are defined by the use of microsystem technology in automotive, aircraft, oil and gas industry, power-engineering, biomedicine, environmental protection and security systems. The current state of material and technical resources allows to carry out training of specialists and researchers at a high level.
Teaching staff. The graduate department of this programme is the Department of Semiconductors and Microelectronics consisting of skilled qualified teachers including 12 professors, 17 assistant professors, 4 senior teachers and 4 assistants. Among part-time teachers there are 7 Doctors and 6 Candidates of Sciences including I.G. Neizvestny, RAS Corresponding Member.
Competitiveness of students. 3rd year students have work experience in the SB RAS institutes and enterprises, 4th year students write graduation thesis. Their supervisors are leading specialists of the University, RAS, and partner organizations. Students take part in the work of the student department of the international community IEEE – one of the largest associations of engineers of electronic engineering, and student design bureaus and laboratories.
Interaction with employers. Specialists of this programme are in high demand in the research sphere in Academgorodok Institutes, enterprises of radioelectronic complex, experimental design offices, small and medium enterprises. Major employers are The Institute of Semiconductor Physics of SB RAS, The Institute of Inorganic Chemistry of SB RAS, JSC “Vostok”, JSC “The Novosibirsk Semiconductor Devices Plant with the Special Design Centre”, LLC “SibIS” and JSC "Radio and Microelectronics".
