Programme presentation. Bachelors in “Materials Science and Technology” can apply the obtained knowledge and skills at the enterprises involved in the production and processing of metallic and non-metallic materials, in research institutes and HEIs. The educational programme is focused on technological, design and managerial paths. To ensure modern level of education the laboratories of the Department are equipped with a complex of high-resolution devices including electronic microscopes, X-ray diffractometers, spectrometers, etc., which allow to study materials at the atomic level. Additional professional training in the working profession “Inspector of Materials, Metals, Semi-finished Products and Items” is organized at the Department.

Teaching staff. Among the teaching staff, there are Doctors and Candidates of Sciences, professors, authors of textbooks and monographs, winners of international and Russian grants, who have long-term experience in education and training of materials specialists. All teachers have been trained in leading Russian and foreign universities (USA, Canada, Japan, China, Germany, Finland, etc.) The main research area (scientific school) of the Department is “Materials Science and Advanced Technologies of Processing Functional Coatings and Special Steels”. Cooperation agreements with a number of leading Russian and foreign companies have been signed in this area. The research institute of reliability and safety of materials and constructions is established.

Competitiveness of students. Students and postgraduates are repeated winners of various contests and Olympiads, recipients of personal scholarships and grants. More than half of the graduates continue their education in the Master’s programme “Materials Science and Technology (in Mechanical Engineering)”. The best students enter the postgraduate programmes in “Materials Science and Heat Treatment of Metals” and “Materials Science”.
