Program description:

The educational program is mainly aimed at the formation of research competencies in the field of theory and monitoring of climate, methods and means of environmental protection with an emphasis on practical applications in the field of ecology and environmental management. Training provides for independent implementation of students research work with the prospect of defending a degree under the guidance of leading scientists of the academic research Institute. As a result of the training, students will publish high-quality scientific publications and will be able to participate in the performance of tasks on grants of scientific funds registered in the IPTC. The training ends with the assignment of a master’s degree with a guarantee of employment in the specialty.

The uniqueness of the program lies in:

– specialized training of scientific personnel capable of effectively solving real scientific and technical problems under the guidance of existing highly qualified scientists, which increases the guarantee of employment in research institutes not only in Sevastopol and Crimea, but also in other regions of the Russian Federation;

– integration of the main fundamental disciplines of the master’s degree in the profile of “Natural and technical systems” in the educational part of the postgraduate program, which increases the time to write a quality PhD thesis and the probability of its protection during the study in graduate school;

– complex nature of the studied disciplines in a wide range of areas;

– obtaining in-depth knowledge by combining the learning process with the direct participation of students in the research and production activities of the basic research Institute in the framework of the state Assignment and specialized grants of the Russian Federation;

-combination of good basic education with highly specialized courses, which allows the student to choose one (or more) direction(s) to achieve specific significant results already in the process of through preparation of the master’s thesis project, and then during its continuation, and preparation of the candidate’s dissertation;

-involvement in the process of training a large number of qualified researchers of the academic Institute.

“Training of qualified specialists in the field of ecology is extremely important for the successful work of the Main Department of natural resources and ecology of the city of Sevastopol (Sevprirodnadzor). Therefore, the initiative of creating a specialized Department Sevgi ecological orientation on the basis of academic Institute cannot be overestimated»
