The Faculty of Materials Science appeared on the basis of three faculties – Faculty of Chemistry, Faculty of Physics and Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics; and so the inter-disciplinary approach underlies the educational program of the faculty. Students complete a number of special theoretical courses and do practical work and advanced training in mathematics, chemistry, physics and mechanics. A special emphasis is put on foreign languages acquisition. Additionally, students study the humanities, including History and Art History, Philosophy and Economics.

Education process at the faculty is organized due to Bachelor/Master degree program with the field of study “Chemistry, physics and mechanics of materials. Each year the faculty has 25 state-funded open positions for first-year students; and 5 additional positions are for commercial education. Such a small intake of students is a deliberate choice intended on individual training program for each student. To create motivation and healthy competition among students, the faculty announces student rating curve every six weeks. This reflects the summary of student achievements, such as grades on written assignments, performance in one-on-one colloquium discussions, and final exam grades.

The main advance in faculty’s education methodology is extensive emphasis on student’s scientific research and creation of an environment that facilitates scientific creativity. This is accomplished by custom-tailored education plan, weekly hands-on laboratory practice, student participation in conferences and scientific events.

Many alumni from the faculty achieve success in different fields of fundamental and applied science, education services and other science-intensive activities, in part due to extensive theoretical and practical training that they receive as students.

Since 2015 all theoretical problems and solutions of the International Olympiad

“Nanotechnologies – Breakthrough to the Future!” are available both in English and Russian. Russian site www.nanometer.ru is the official portal of the International Olympiad on nanotechnologies “Nanotechnologies – Breakthrough to the Future!”

Support of the International English-speaking participants is organized using social network communities such as International Olympiad on Nanotechnologies on Facebook and International Olympiad “Nanotechnologies – Breakthrough to the Future!” on LinkedIn.
