Doctor of Sciences (Physics and Mathematics), Associate Professor

In 2016 SUSU entered the Project 5-100, a program for competitiveness improvement, and as a result the Institute of Natural Sciences was established, which in its structure combined the Faculties of Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Mechanics and Computer Sciences. The Institute inherits the traditions of the Russian university education on natural sciences recognized all around the world.

Our Institute prepares specialists with the fundamental knowledge of mathematics and mechanics, applied mathematics and programming, physics and chemistry. They are able to solve a wide range of problems of natural sciences, engineering, and economics using computer technologies. The INS graduates can work as software engineers, system and application programmers, business analysts, database administrators, system administrators, web-analysts, web-designers, chemists, physicists, experts in electronics and nanoelectronics, and in other fields.

Among the main advantages of the Institute are the Department of Exclusive Education and Individual Educational Programs; the Center of Virtual Educational Technologies; the Specialized Center for Preparation to Academic Competitions; the Center of Professional Career; the Publishing Office conducting an exchange of experience of the editorial board of scientific journals; and the unique Museum of Visual Physics

The Institute students can perform their research projects based on the Laboratory of Supercomputer Modeling equipped with powerful Tornado SUSU and SKIF-Aurora supercomputers.

The Institute has powerful laboratory facilities. Its structure includes the Scientific and Educational Center “Nanotechnologies”, the Laboratory of Organoelement Compounds, Crystal Growth Laboratory, the Laboratory of Multiscale Modeling of Multi-Component Functional Materials, Interferometry Laboratory and others.

The alumni of the SUSU Institute of Natural Sciences gain a wide range of theoretical knowledge and practical skills on conducting research and addressing production problems. They professionally combine their fundamental knowledge of mathematics, physics and chemistry with a creative approach and analytical mind.

By choosing the Institute of Natural Sciences, you get fundamental classical education, modern level of training and high computer technologies in experimental and theoretical research studies.
