Our advantages
  • The bachelor's programme ‘Electromagnetic and Acoustic Processes’ is aimed at an in-depth study of theoretical, experimental and computer methods for studying various wave processes of a varying nature.
  • Students master the advanced fields of physics, mathematics, information technology, and then strengthen their fundamental knowledge with practical research work.
  • The programme is supported by one of the leading schools of fundamental radiophysics in Russia. It is specialised in research into: radio wave propagation; charged particle radiation processes; physics of non-stationary and non-linear wave processes; space radiophysics; and acoustics.
  • The training is based on the combination of fundamental education with practical work in academic and research laboratories, as well as at enterprises of potential employers.
  • Graduates of the programme are fully prepared for continuing their education in master’s programmes and for a successful academic career. They are capable of using advanced physical and mathematical methods in radiophysics and various fields of physics and technology. These include space communication and navigation systems, microwave electronics, radio astronomy, physics of accelerators, and acoustics.
