The field of professional activity of graduates include research questions and create a new theory of electromagnetic phenomena and devices, new principles of systems, devices and components, new radio materials design and reliability, new engineering process and testing of wireless devices.

Research development, creation and production of new antennas, microwave devices and technology, radio materials, element base, dealing with EMC problems of metrological support, new design techniques and new processes.

Reserch on the use of radio phenomena to develop new principles and algorithms of radar and navigation systems, new methods of design and reliability, new processes and test these systems. The value of making scientific and technical problems radiolocation and radio navigation, radar and navigation systems and devices is to study new principles and methods of extraction and processing information to create highly effective in the field of radar, navigation, electronic warfare, their production technologies and others.

Research areas:

  • Theory of vacuum principles of semiconductor devices and circuits;
  • Theory and technology of radiation and radio waves sewer;
  • The use of wireless devices in the systems, networks and telecommunication devices;
  • Studies of radio navigation, radar;
  • Radio control;
  • General physical properties of electromagnetic waves and radiation.

Study of new processes and phenomena in electronics that improve the efficiency of wireless devices. Developing methods and transfer devices for receiving, processing, displaying and data storage. Development of advanced information technologies, including digital, as well as with the use of neural networks for image recognition in electronic devices. The development of wireless devices used in industry, biology, medicine, metrology and others.

Postgraduate study is a system for training highly qualified specialists of the new generation, competitive in the market of intellectual labor, with the skills of analytical, research and teaching activities. To apply for the postgraduate program candidate should hold master’s or specialist’s degree in the related field.

Russian higher education is divided into undergraduate (bachelor's), graduate (master's or specialist’s) and postgraduate (PhD) levels. Bachelor’s degree programs duration is 4 year, master’s degree program is 2 more years (6 years in total). Specialist’s programs are usually lasts for 5 or 5,5 years. Specialist’s degree is equated to bachelor’s + master’s degrees obtained.

Postgraduate programs’ duration is 4 years. At the beginning of the studies an individual training plan is drawn up. Postgraduate education includes research under the guidance of scientific supervisor. Therefore, for admission it is important to accurately determine the faculty and department, where you would like to continue your studies, to have a potential PhD supervisor and thesis abstracts.

During this time, it is necessary to have several scientific publications. Upon completion of the program and postgraduate exams, graduates receive the postgraduate diploma. After receiving a diploma you have the opportunity to become a Candidate of Sciences. It can be achieved by defending a thesis for the Candidate's Degree at the end of the studies.
