Tania Shakhti Cortha, Switzerland

I earned my Master’s degree from NUST MISIS and then entered my PhD degree. I specialize in powder metallurgy. Besides, I am a research engineer at the laboratory of inorganic nanomaterials.

At NUST MISIS, I had an opportunity to take part in Days of Science. That was a great experience.

The most pleasant part of university studies is when your research findings are published. Even if they are published in international journals that are not the leading ones, I am still so proud of that. Once I was even interviewed for Russian TV!

Now I am developing the International Student Council. We are planning events and some activities for our international students.

After I earn my Bachelor's degree, I will apply for a Master’s degree at NUST MISIS. Studying in a foreign language is difficult, but it offers huge prospects.
