Student Research at RUDN

We have applicants enrolling and scientists graduating

Always dreamed of making a discovery that would change the world for the better? You can’t stay indifferent to outstanding challenges and unaccomplished tasks, can you? Do you want to write a competitive scientific paper and do your own research led by the top RUDN scientists?

Our Student Research Council (SRC) is willing to give you guidance while you take your first steps in science!

How is the research work of students organized?
For future researchers and professionals: student research clubs and professional associations

We organize clubs and associations to immerse our students in a professional environment. Here, they will learn to conduct research, write scholarly articles, and practice the rules of thumb. The schedule and frequency of classes are set for each club/association individually at the beginning of the academic year.

You may choose a club/association you like not matter what your department is. If you want to change the course of your scientific activity, we will help you find a research team you like.

Your curators-to-be are RUDN teachers and scientists. Experienced mentors will organize round tables with well-known speakers, as well as debates, trainings, and workshops, and they always come up with new learning formats.

For more details you can always contact persons in charge of student research. Their contact details are available in relevant department files once you decide on your research direction.

For innovators-to-be: Student Design Office (SDO)

Here students are involved in design and digital modeling. If you want to work in a high-tech laboratory or a computer lab, make a DIY race car or a buggy – you are welcome at RUDN design offices. Our students handle engineering cases and offer new architectural projects.

For enthusiastic organizers: Student Research Society (SRS)

The Student Research Society links students interested in scientific activity, scientists and teachers. It is one of the key student self-government bodies. It brings together active members from all RUDN departments. SRS members are organizers of high-profile scientific conferences and workshops held at the university and key popularizers of science among students.

“SRS promotes interests of activists of the student science. Using SRS, students can develop their organizational and professional skills and qualities required for team work. A RUDN slogan says ‘Be a leader!’ I believe that being part of SRS is being a leader”, Ilya Vlasov, SRS Departmentman.

You know this feeling – traffic jams are there all the time .But at RUDN University there is a group of concerned students, who want to find a solution to this problem.

RUDN scientists have shown how much taking into account the real shape of the satellite affects the probability of collision of two space objects

RUDN scientists have clarified the model for calculating the probability that space objects may encounter. Classical models do not take into account the real shape and orientation of objects -it seemed that this increases the calculated probability several times. The results are published in the journal Cosmic Research.
