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.
A group of scientists from CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research), the GI Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics SB RAS (INP SB RAS), the A.I. Alikhanov Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Physics "Kurchatov Institute" (ITEP), NSU, et al. discovered a new particle, an exotic tetraquark Tcс +.
For his final thesis, Maxim Kochanov, a student at the NSU Mechanics and Mathematics Department, considered two problems. The first was semantic segmentation of brain tumors on MRI images and the second predicting the time interval of patients' lives based on images of segmented brain tumors established solving the first problem.
NSU scientist Valentin Portnykh, Head of the NSU Humanitarian Institute’s Laboratory of the History of the Ancient World and the Middle Ages, was editor of a catalog of valuable medieval manuscripts from German collections.
In the era of A.I. the most important thing is to save and improve people talents. How to achieve this? You may resolve the issue during the Hackathon by suggesting a solution to a real business problem [I added it] in a team of 3-5 teammates. The solution will be justified by IT-experts from Samruk Kazyna companies.
This is an annual event hosted by the Geology and Geophysics Department. It was designed for people of all ages and professions so that anyone interested in geography can test their knowledge of geography. Everyone is welcome; an English version will be available for foreign participants.
