The programs in English are in demand not only among international students but among Russian students who want to integrate in international professional and research community.
Vera Galishnikova, Head of PhD program “Building designs, buildings and constructions: the theory of buildings and structures” at RUDN Engineering Academy says, “The program was opened only 2 years ago and we already have 2 postdoc students – from Russia and Nigeria who are primarily interested in earthquake-resistant buildings. Other fields of interest for our potential students are information modeling of construction objects and principles of sustainable construction. We are expecting students from America and Asia”.
Postdoc programs in English open the doors to fundamental knowledge and latest research of Russian scientific schools. For example, “Pathological physiology: pathogenetic mechanisms of contemporary diseases” program of RUDN Medical Institute gives a chance to research the most topical problems of pathological physiology and save thousands of lives.
In 2017, RUDN is planning to open 28 new programs.
Programs launched in 2016:
Biochemistry: The regulation of cancer genesis
Pathological physiology: pathogenetic mechanisms of contemporary diseases
Organic chemistry: Chemistry of heterocyclic compounds
Ecology: Modern environmental studies
Building designs, buildings and constructions: the theory of buildings and structures
Management in social and economic systems (engineering science)
