The educational mission of the Faculty of Physics is to train highly qualified research physicists in the field of both fundamental and applied physics, who will be able to further build an academic career or work in applied research laboratories, as well as in high-tech business. The training of students is based on their involvement in real scientific research. The Faculty provides fundamental education in the field of "Physics" at the undergraduate level, specialized theoretical and practical professional knowledge in the master's program, as well as the preparation of a dissertation in a scientific specialty in graduate school. Educational programs of the faculty:
By choosing the basic department, the student determines their individual educational trajectory. In the most general sense, a basic department is a form of interaction between a university and other organizations, on the basis of which scientific or industrial training takes place. At the Faculty of Physics, the basic organizations are the institutes of the Department of Physical Sciences of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The faculty currently has six basic departments at, respectively, six institutes of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
In the 3rd and 4th year, in addition to general faculty classes, students spend 1-2 days a week in basic institutes, where researchers of the selected institute read a cycle of special disciplines, as well as provide scientific guidance. Classes will be held in small groups of 8-10 people, which allows for an individual approach to each student. Each department has its own unique pool of academic disciplines. The main directions of training at the basic departments of the Faculty of Physics:
