Program Description

Master in Materials Science

Novosibirsk State University



The development of the economy of any state largely depends on materials used in various industries, their functional properties, and safety among other things. In this regard, the development of new materials is on the list priorities in the development of science and technologies.

Novosibirsk is a leading research center in materials science, chemistry, and physics of materials. The master program “Materials science” provides opportunities to perform a research project with leading Russian research teams, and to learn from the lectures given by recognized experts in the field. A publication in the peer-review international scientific journals is expected after the end of the project. We believe that this is a good starting point for a research career in one the most rapidly developing fields.

Program goal

The main aim of the program is to form a bridge for motivated students between undergraduate and Ph.D. study. As the result of training the graduates of the program to acquire knowledge and skills of qualified specialists in the field of materials science and novel technologies.
