Novosibirsk state university is the unique place where education and science intersect. These two fields are inseparable here: they help the University to move forward by opening the incredible opportunities for work and further studies to NSU students and graduates. The university closely cooperates with the research institutes: more than a hundred of research areas developed all over the world are available for our students to explore. This allows NSU students to engage in the real, serious science from early years of their study, and to become part of the international scientific community.
Novosibirsk state university holds the leading positions in physics and natural sciences, being among the world’s best universities. The leading positions are ensured by participation in international collaborations, as well as by the wide recognition of research outcomes. For example, in 2015 the European center for nuclear research chose to build a supercollider using the model developed by the scientists working at the Institute of nuclear physics (Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences), who are also NSU professors and graduates.
Together with the traditional scientific disciplines, new areas are now being developed at NSU: engineering, instrumentation, astrophysics, and many more. The university now demonstrates the increasing amount of publications and citations in international journals; the number of graduate students and young faculty members is also growing. And, of course, the location of NSU in the academic town (Akademgorodok) provides the intellectual environment for professional development of every student, creates the ground for the emergence of new interdisciplinary research areas, and for integration of science with business and society.
For the first time, scientists at the NSU Physics Department Laboratory for Functional Materials grew a unique nonlinear lithium gallium sulfide crystal LiGaS2.
Professor Hermann Parzinger, prominent German archeologist responsible for numerous international archeological discoveries, was awarded an honorary doctorate from Novosibirsk State University. The Honorary Doctor title is the highest NSU award. Hermann Parzinger became the 19th scientist to receive it.
Ten representatives from French and Siberian universities took part in an annual NSU conference. The conference program included a presentation of the Trianon Dialogue, a round table, “Academic Mobility: How to Overcome Obstacles”, a presentation of the program “Exporting Education”, a round table, “University Networks, Why?” , and a visit to the research laboratories in Akademgorodok and Academpark.
Liliana Karali, a Professor at the University of Athens and guest lecturer at the NSU Institute of Philosophy and Law, will give a series of lectures in English.
On November 8, Novosibirsk State University will host open lecture for teachers and students on “Big Data in the Digital Economy Era”. The lecturer will be Irina Muhina, an expert in the development of Big Data digital and analytical solutions for medium-sized businesses.
During November 5 – 17, within the master program “Cryptography” there will be a two-week course “Foundations of symmetric cryptography” with lectures and seminars that will be delivered by Stjepan Picek, assistant professor at Delft University of Technology (The Netherlands), researcher at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA).
