CANDIDATE'S AND MASTER'S PROGRAMS AT NSTU

 

CANDIDATE OF SCIENCE PROGRAMS

 

NSTU known then as Novosibirsk Institute of Electrical Engineering (NIEE) admitted the first (post)graduate students to its graduate school / (post)graduate program as early as mid-1950's. The (post) graduate students were doing research in the fields studied under the direction of leading NIEE professors.

In 1955, there were five (post)graduate students doing research in their appropriate fields of study. Among them were Vladimir M. Cheban and Valentin F. Khon, at present Doctors of Science, Professors.

The present-day NSTU (post)graduate programs offer the graduate applicants a wide choice of research fields. Admission to the (post)graduate programs is carried out on the competition basis. Study and research are provided in full-time and part-time form. The full-time course should not exceed a three-year period, and part-time no more than four years. Study in the full-time program is considered as teaching and research work in an appropriate job.

The graduate applicants have an interview with their prospective advisers/supervisors of studies and take entrance examinations in their major subject, philosophy and a foreign language. Those who passed their Candidate's degree examinations (there are three Candidate's examinations as well in the subjects mentioned above) are not required to take entrance examinations. Master students who passed examinations in these subjects with grades "excellent" and "good" are admitted to the graduate school without entrance examinations.

In their first year in the Cand. Sc. program, graduate students are expected to pass Candidate’s degree examinations in philosophy and a foreign language. Examination in the major subject is usually taken upon the completion of the graduate research. Cand. Sc. degree is conferred on after defending Candidate's dissertation which is a piece of original research conducted under the guidance of a leading professor, as a rule, head of a school of thought on a certain area of research. The adviser leads the graduate student through the graduate course.

The NSTU graduate school offers Cand. Sc. degree courses in diverse fields of research. These are physical and mathematical sciences, engineering sciences, economics, philosophy, and education.

Among the former NSTU (post)graduate students are leading NSTU researchers who supervised Cand. Sc. and D. Sc. degree holders in various fields of knowledge.
