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.
Novosibirsk State University has improved its position in the International Academic Ranking of World Universities (2018). The ranking is prepared by the Center for World-Class Universities (CWCU) at the Institute of Higher Education, Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
Novosibirsk State University scientists have proposed the hypothesis that the Alay Valley at an altitude of 2,300-3500 meters above sea level is one of the earliest human sites. This assumption makes it possible for scientists to identify tools found during an archaeological expedition in 2017. Confirmation of the exact age of the site will help with the selection of new artifacts.
Novosibirsk State University launched their Siberian Summer Program "Business in Russia: Understanding and Surviving". Program participants are from Germany, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, the United States, Venezuela, Indonesia and Russia. This is the first time the NSU Department of Economics has conducted this type of program designed primarily for foreign students.
The Center for International Study Programs (CISP) at the NSU Humanities Institute teaches the Russian language to students from all over the world. Since 1989, we have been helping foreigners plunge into the world of the Russian language and understand Russian culture. We train students of all ages, nationalities, and points of view.
The conference will bring together leading Russian and foreign scientists - specialists in the field of mechanochemistry.
NSU and the Engineering School of Computer Science and Applied Mathematics at EISTI - École d'Ingénieurs Maths / Informatique (Paris,France) signed an agreement to form a joint Master’s Program in Big Data Analytics with NSU’s Mechanics and Mathematics Department.
