Achievements and awards. The department receives letters of appreciation for training of highly qualified engineers from the Union of Composites Manufacturers, Harris Group International Project & Construction, the Middle Neva Shipbuilding Plant, the NPK Composite chemical fiber manufacturer, the Virial production company as well as from the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Tatarstan, certificates and diplomas for participation in various international scientific and practical conferences and forums.

Teaching staff. Training is provided by five Doctors of Sciences and seven Candidates of Sciences as well as scientists of the Institute of Macromolecular Compounds of the Russian Academy of Sciences, specialists of the enterprises such as NPK Composite, the SvetlogorskKhimvolokno fiber manufacturer, the Middle Neva Shipbuilding Plant.

Facilities and resources. The state-of-the-art equipment of the department, learning and research laboratories includes a derivatograph, a laboratory bench for producing composite materials, laboratory extruders, a projection microscope, thermal ovens operating in the air and inert atmosphere, spectrophotometers, and other equipment.

Research. The department has been working as part of the state assignment in the field of research for several years already. It conducts basic and applied research in the field of nanostructured polymeric and composite materials.

Strategic partners. The university cooperates with ITECH Lyon, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, Yuri Gagarin State Technical University of Saratov, Moscow State University of Design and Technology, the Composite World publishing house. Students undertake internships at the leading enterprises and organizations of the industry, with further employment opportunities: the Composite holding company, the Institute of Macromolecular Compounds of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the NPK Composite chemical fiber manufacturer, the Union of Composites Manufacturers, the SvetlogorskKhimvolokno fiber manufacturer, and others.

International projects and programs. The university participates in interstate programs of Russia and the Republic of Belarus in the field of advanced technologies of fibrous materials and their composites and the program in the field of polymeric materials for medical use funded by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation. In 2012-2016 the department successfully carried out research and development as part of the scientific and technical program of the Union State “Development of Innovative Technologies and Engineering to Produce Competitive Composite Materials, Matrices and Reinforcing Elements for 2012- 2016.”

Competitive advantages. The department is Russia's only department that trains Bachelors, Masters and highly skilled specialists in the field of carbon fiber materials and carbon-carbon composite materials.
