HEI’s image. It is impossible to imagine the modern society without gas and petroleum refinery products. They are automobile and aviation gasolines, reactive, diesel, boiler types of fuel, oils and grease, raw materials for petroleum chemistry. Students get profound theoretical knowledge and practical training in this field in the profile "Chemical Technology of Natural Energy Resources and Carbon Materials". The NCFU graduates are highly demanded in the market and very often work for major gas and oil processing, petroleum chemistry enterprises of Moscow, Ryazan, Dzerzhinsk, Volgograd, Astrakhan, Krasnodarsky and StavropolskyTerritories.

Programme presentation. The Graduate Department has a great experience in training specialists in the field of petroleum refinery. The Department has at its disposal study laboratories for chemical technology of petroleum fuels and gas, a research laboratory for chemical technology of motor oils, petroleum and gas analysis. All the laboratories are equipped with state-of-the-art machinery providing a high technological level of education and research. NCFU research library has in stock over 1.1 million volumes. The educational process features a high-quality informational support.

Teaching staff. Over 80% of the teachers of the profile subjects have academic degrees, the average age of the teaching staff is 47 years old. The high level of teaching is ensured by three Doctors of Sciences and eight Candidates of Sciences. Most of the staff have extensive practical experience in enterprises of the gas and petroleum industry.

Competitiveness of students. The Department organizes internships at the leading enterprises engaged in processing of carbon raw materials, in design and research organizations as well as in the laboratories carrying out quality analysis of gas and petroleum processing products, main organic and petroleum chemistry products. Every year students win all-Russia academic competitions in petroleum chemistry, participate in international conferences.

Interaction with employers. Within the programme implementation strong partner cooperation has been established with LLC “Stavrolen”, CJSC “Rjazanskaya NPK”. Every year some regional organization conclude contracts on employer-sponsored education with students according to which they pay monthly allowances and provide students with employment in the future.
