Physico-Technical Department

This department provides training of engineers-physicists.


Physical science of materials; cryogenic engineering and technology; engineering and electrical physics of high voltages, non-traditional power sources, microelectronics and nanoelectronics.

Fields of Study

Designing and producing the new materials with unique properties needed for the construction of new machines; improving the commercial products and production processes by giving a priority to the mechanical engineering, metallurgy, power engineering, electronics, and space materials science. Carrying out the theoretical and experimental research, designing and operating the low temperature devices. Developing the physical basics and creating the devices that use specific properties of low-power semiconductors. Carrying out the theoretical and experimental studies and producing the film layers and laminated heterogeneous systems based on semi-conductive compositions that provide high reliability, durability and effective operation of the modern devices, in which they are embedded. Developing, producing and operating the electro-physical technological devices intended for processing of materials, finished products, biological objects and products used in machine engineering, agriculture, industrial ecology and medicine. Developing the high voltage pulsers with ultimate parameters that are intended for testing equipment subjected to the action of powerful electromagnetic fields of natural and artificial origin and for testing equipment for electrical safety, certification of the radio, electrical and electronic equipment for electromagnetic compatibility.

Basic Subjects

Mathematics, physics, mathematical and theoretical physics, physical electronics, computer science, programming, and foreign languages.

Special Subjects

The subjects are determined by the field of specialisation chosen by a student. Modern methods of investigation of the structures and physical properties of materials, physics of semiconductors and contact phenomena, crystal and energetic structure of semiconductors, physical and chemical basics of technology for production of materials used for electronics and solar power engineering, technological basics of microelectronics and nanoelectronics; methods of computation and design of electro-physical devices, etc. The curriculum provides comprehensive professional and practical training of engineers. They acquire skills for working with complicated research equipment, vacuum and cryogenic equipment, laser and electronic ray devices, and PC-based systems.
