Our advantages

  • Fundamental mathematical training that provides: opportunities for active work in the most complex areas of modern mechanics; and in-depth knowledge of programming that enables computer simulation of processes and phenomena in various systems.
  • A high-profile team of teachers and researchers who provide training in all areas of modern mechanics;
  • The existence of acting scientific schools that make it possible for students to be actively engaged in research work directly at the University;
  • Work on unique experimental facilities in our own laboratories; combining the capabilities of theoretical and experimental approaches that make it possible for graduates to comprehensively study the most complex problems of mechanics;
  • Mastering the application programmes for solving problems of theoretical mechanics, hydroaeromechanics and the theory of elasticity (ANSYS, FLUENT, etc.) and creating their own algorithms and programmes for specific problems of modern mechanics using the cutting-edge computer equipment;
