Faculty of Mechanical Engineering

It offers high-quality education to applicants interested in modern mechanics, physical and mechanical processes and phenomena, computer design and research technologies, modern construction methods, implementation of nanotechnologies.

There is a high demand for graduates of the SPSIT(TU) Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. For example, for graduates with a degree in Technological Machines and Equipment, the employment rate is 94.1% and the average graduate salary is 58,500 RUB according to the Pension Fund of Russia

Faculty of Chemistry of Substances and Materials

The faculty is affiliated with the most advanced enterprises. Some of them, for example, the calcined soda production enterprises, were established at the end of the 19th century, but today they operate based on state-of-the-art technologies.

Other production facilities design tailored materials (using nanotechnologies) that have unique chemical and thermal resistance.

The industries involving careful treatment such as manufacturing of materials for endoprostheses, bone implants is also the field where our graduates can apply their competencies.

This work is especially suitable for women as it is creative, careful and accurate.

Faculty of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology

Chemical engineering studied at the faculty covers a wide range of industries, from oil and gas processing into energy carriers to manufacturing of products with the complex structure and composition such as polymers, dyes, sorbents, medicines, cosmetic products, biologically active substances, and others.

The faculty offers interesting studies, study placements as part of academic mobility and double degree programs, work placements at the top Russian and foreign enterprises, and later – creative and high-paying jobs.

Faculty of Engineering and Technology

Thanks to high-quality training of engineers for the nuclear power industry and diverse radiation technologies, SPSIT(TU) was included among flagship universities of ROSATOM State Atomic Energy Corporation.

A high percentage of graduates work in the defense industry and nuclear power industry. The educational process is partly conducted at top defense industry enterprises that employ recent graduates.

Faculty of Information Technologies and Management

Faculty of Economics and Management
