Our advantages
  • The training programme provides a fundamental education in mathematics, mechanics and computer science. It makes it possible to acquire the scientific methods of mechanical and mathematical modelling of physical processes.
  • An outstanding team of lecturers and researchers provides training in: all areas of modern mechanics; as well as interdisciplinary areas at the intersection of chemistry, physics, biology, computational mathematics and other sciences.
  • The research and teaching staff of the programme implements challenging advanced projects in: the mechanics of thin-walled structures; the dynamics of spacecrafts; rotor dynamics; biomechanics; experimental aerodynamics; and physical and chemical gas dynamics. They are also engaged in studies of: multilayer nanotubes; properties of shape memory materials; and strongly nonequilibrium processes in the mechanics of heterogeneous and structured media. Existing scientific schools give students an opportunity to be actively engaged in research.
  • The main focus is on creative research and in-depth study according to their chosen profile.
  • Students work at unique experimental facilities in our own laboratories. A combination of theoretical and experimental approaches makes it possible for students to comprehensively study the most complex problems of mechanics.
  • Students master applied programmes for solving problems of theoretical mechanics, hydroaeromechanics and elasticity theory (ANSYS, FLUENT, etc.). They also build their own algorithms and develop programmes for specific problems of modern mechanics using the most advanced computer technology.
  • Students have an opportunity to: carry out research supported by grants for the academic staff; take part in contests of youth projects; and make presentations at international conferences.
Future career

The graduates are trained to work for R&D institutes, construction industry, machine building, aerospace industry, mass computerisation and communication media, robotics and other fields of engineering and natural sciences. They can also carry out scientific research related to the development and application of mathematical methods for solving applied and fundamental problems of natural science, engineering, economics and management.

The graduates can work as research fellows and R&D engineers, as well as administrators and managers in R&D engineering. Their activities are related to mathematical modelling, scientific and applied research for science-driven high-tech industries, production and technology. They can also work as lecturers at higher education institutions, and teachers at secondary general and vocational education institutions.
