Program Description

The goal of the program is to provide high-quality physics and mathematics knowledge and engineering training to students. After graduation they are able to work in relevant high-tech industries and knowledge-based businesses.  The program is aimed at solving the problems of fundamental and applied science, including training of personnel for:  — International thermonuclear program and international ITER project;  — Academic institutes and centers exploring plasma and plasma-like matter, including extreme states, space and laboratory conditions;  — Companies dealing with innovative technological applications of plasma in the fields of production, ecology, medicine.  Students form a basic understanding about the methods of diagnostics, parameter operation and production of plasma («Low Temperature Plasma Physics», «Hot Plasma and Controlled Fusion», «Plasma Facilities» etc.).  Students also undergo a training, which is performed on modern research, analytical and technological equipment, starting with laboratory work at junior courses and up to defending the final qualifying work performed in a scientific group led by well-known scientists.

Career opportunities

Graduates of this program apply their knowledge in physics, computer modelling of plasma processes and plasma physics. This knowledge is vital for employment in leading Russian and foreign research centers and companies that specialize in laser and plasma industrial technologies 

Areas of research and training: 

  • interaction between plasma and surface (the leading scientific center of the Russian Federation), including that within the facilities of controlled thermonuclear fusion 
  • physics of gas discharges and its application in lasers, ecology and medicine
  • diagnostics of pulse and stationary plasma
  • plasma technologies
  • theory of plasma and its interaction with surface of condensed media
