There are several specialties and bachelor/master degree programs in Institute of physics.
Bachelor of physics, bachelor of radiophysics and bachelor of technology are 4-year courses. After a 4-year course students may apply for a master’s
To specialize in astronomy students may choose a 5-year course which results in receiving a specialist diploma.
First years are devoted to Physics, Mathematics and general subjects such as History and Philosophy. These subjects serve as the basis for the future
researcher’s world outlook. A wide equipment base allows students to observe physical phenomena without leaving the class.
In the process of education and in their scientific work students make full use of modern information technology (computer classes, Internet,
In the third year of education students choose a department and along with general courses and start studying subjects according to their profile.
On receiving the diploma students may opt for continuing their education as post-graduates. Course durations are 3 years (full-time) and 4 years
Postgraduate education is individual while all the programs are in line with the main areas of research in the Institute. Each postgraduate student
must pass several credits and examinations and prepare a dissertation under the supervision of one of Institute’s leading professors.
A correspondence course introduced in cooperation with Japan’s leading research institute RIKEN allows students to get two certificates – Russian
candidate of science and PhD.
The Institute’s graduate:
is aimed at studying the fundamental laws and complex effects of nature;
is capable of applying his knowledge and experience in all areas of human activity;
is highly creative;
is ready to develop innovative technology;
is ready to work in the “society of information”.
A new bachelor course “Nano- and microsystem technology” has been introduced in 2011, being the most promising research field in electronics for the
next few decades.
Nanotechnologies allow researchers to manipulate with single atoms and molecules and develop new structures and materials with properties unattainable
through applying common techniques.
Nanotechnologies operate with particles with sizes between 1 and 100 nanometers (1 nm = 10
-9 m). Quantum-mechanical effects become apparent, which makes it possible to create materials with unprecedented solidity, flexibility, magnetic
softness etc. Nanotechnologies are a way to record-breaking operation speeds, sizes and power consumption.
Kazan state university invests sufficient funds in researches and specialists training in the field of nanotechnologies. New expensive equipment from
abroad is being bought. All of this allows Institute of physics to provide the quality of specialist training sufficient to satisfy the demands of the
leading scientific, technologic and industrial centers in Russian Federation and all over the world.
