Natural Sciences

A masters is earned after students complete an undergraduate degree program. To obtain a masters, you usually need to complete 12 to 18 college courses that often involve completing comprehensive tests and/or a thesis.

In a natural sciences academic program, many branches of the field might be explored in depth with the goal of observing and learning about nature. Some of these branches may include astronomy, biology, physics, ecology and chemistry.

Russia or, also officially known as the Russian Federation, is a country in northern Eurasia. Education in Russia is provided predominantly by the state and is regulated by the Ministry of Education and Science. In Russia, it takes about 70 % of training time for the contact lessons with a teacher, the rest 30 % of the workload are devoted to the independent study of the material.

Best Masters in Natural Sciences in Russia 2017. About program The constant tendency to reduce the size and increase the degree of integration of (nano-) electronic and (nano-) photonic systems inevitably leads to the need to consider the quantum corrections. On the one hand, the role of quantum effects may be negative, imposing fundamental dimension restrictions on the ability of a broad class of devices, such as transistors, to work in a regular mode. On the other, the laws of quantum mechanics allow us to construct new element base for a variety of devices that can process, store, encode, and transmit information using methods, which are qualitatively different from the currently existing. It is expected that in the coming decades, quantum technologies will revolutionize such fields of knowledge as computers, cryptography, and computer science. The Master's Program Quantum Information Technology (QIT) is aimed at training highly qualified specialists, competitive on the domestic and international labor market, capable of solving complex problems of transmission, storage, and processing of information using quantum information technologies and methods, taking into account the most advanced achievements of science and technology, including quantum physics of condensed state, nanoelectronics, quantum and nonlinear optics, nanophotonics, quantum theory of communication and computing, and nanotechnology.
