Recruitment for the Master's Programs is realized provided there are groups with a minimum number of 5 persons.

National Research Tomsk Polytechnic University (hereinafter referred to as TPU) has been providing for training specialists in a range of fields, including mining and processing of uranium ore, reprocessing and storing of spent nuclear fuel and a lot others, for more than 60 years.

One of the remarkable features of the programme is that TPU is one of the ROSATOM core universities, which provides its international students with a unique opportunity to conduct research at the premises of its own only-in-Russia university research and training reactor. The research topics generally involve studies of operational modes, in-core systems and controls, material properties, technologies of nuclear doping of silicon and the production of isotopes for medical purposes, including ready forms of radiopharmaceuticals.

Another important characteristic of the programme is that accepted students have an opportunity to complete industrial internship at the premises of ROSATOM enterprises, which enables graduates to apply the obtained knowledge and skills in practice.

The Master's programme offers students an extensive and detailed education in the key areas pertaining to nuclear technology. The programme aims to prepare students to develop engineering careers in the atomic fields that require specialized knowledge and skills. In general, programme graduates are expected to lead engineering careers in industry, government or go on to study for a doctoral degree.

The programme provides its graduates with the depth and breadth of knowledge and skills, which are required to perform successfully in an area related to operation of nuclear power plants. An accepted student is engaged in an in-depth study of particular research problems, such as development of perspective materials for nuclear fuel cycle, improving the operational characteristics of nuclear installations that emphasize theory and/or experimentation. The training and research are conducted under the guidance of research supervisors and a multi-disciplinary team of scientific and engineering faculty.
