Description of the educational programme

The aim of the program is to train highly qualified specialists in the field of energy efficiency and resource conservation, who possess sufficient skills to work for high-tech enterprises, as well as for continuing research in any part of the world.

Program objectives:

  • formation of competences in the field of energy and resource saving and environmental design;
  • formation of knowledge and skills in the field of solving modern problems of energy and resource saving;
  • teaching information retrieval both in regulatory documents and in scientific journals;
  • teaching how to solve non-standard problems of energy and resource conservation, requiring the application of a scientific approach.

The area of professional activity: design in the field of energy and resource conservation, research, environmental marketing, consulting, environmental-economic, environmental-legal, training activities.

Objects of professional activity: processes and devices in chemical technology, petrochemistry and biotechnology; industrial plants and technological schemes, including automated control systems; automated research systems and computer-aided design systems; facilities for sewage treatment and gas emissions, waste treatment, utilization of heat and energy flows and secondary materials; methods and tools for assessing the state of the environment and protecting it from human impact; artificial intelligence systems in chemical technology, petrochemistry and biotechnology; multi-assortment production of chemical and related industries.

Types of professional activity:

  • production and technology;
  • research,
  • organizational and managerial.

Program strengths:

  1. International internships during studies with the opportunity to participate in double degree programs (two degrees - SUSU and a foreign university). Participation in conferences on a national and international level with oral presentations on the topic of the master's thesis.
  2. Undergraduates study for free at the Lingua courses, which involve teaching both written and spoken common English.
  3. Specialists in this field of study are in demand both in design and control organizations, and in enterprises of the real sector of the economy (metallurgical, machine-building, oil and gas processing and transporting, pharmaceutical enterprises), as well as in scientific organizations.
  4. Mastering modern world research technologies. Undergraduates in the performance of dissertations actively use the equipment of world-class scientific and educational center Nanotechnology.
  5. Teaching is conducted in the second half of the day, which makes it possible to study full-time in the magistracy without separation from the main work.
