Students in Russia pursue projects in various fields such as medicine, civil engineering, nuclear power engineering etc.

Practical application is one of the advantages of education in Russia. All students without exception gain knowledge that can be put to practical use. Master’s and postgraduate students carry out experiments at laboratories having state-of-the-art equipment; many of the inventions they present fetch awards.

National Research Nuclear University MEPhI postgraduate Abu Gazal Aiman Akhed from Jordan is in a team of scientists which came up with a new electrophysical diagnosis method for nuclear reactor equipment. It detects the finest cracks in the nuclear reactor and identifies the next most vulnerable areas. The invention features very small 1mm to 2mm sensors that can be placed in all difficult-to-access parts of the reactor. Nuclear engineering companies have already displayed an interest in the project.

South Ural State University researchers led by postgraduate Galina Averina developed magnesia concrete, a new high-strength construction material that can be produced within 24 hours. Magnesia concrete is baked at a low temperature which cuts CO2 air pollutant emissions. No further processing is required and this lowers the production cost.

National Research Tomsk State University students Anastasia Lenshina, Nikita Goncharov, Maria Bondarenko and Ilya Saushkin designed Good Buyer software for online shopping which can accurately measure a person’s size and suggest a dress style depending on their constitution. The programme is integrated in the seller’s website; body measurements are obtained through the customer’s photo in one click and the data is stored for future reference.

Russian universities students successfully completed several health care projects. National Research Tomsk Polytechnic University master's students designed an arrhythmia tracker which monitors heartbeat and detects cardiac irregularity. A set of two wrist bracelets is used to watch the heart function round the clock and send data to a smartphone via dedicated application also designed by TPU students. Cardiac patients can relay this information to their doctor. The designers plan to launch heart rate monitor production; it would cost around 7,000 to 8,000 roubles ($117 - $133), quality counterpart equipment sells at much higher prices and is largely used by medical institutions.

Far Eastern Federal University student Nikolai Goncharov jointly with the U.S. National Institutes of Health presented a new method to test anti-cancer medications. The test employs human artificial chromosome to gauge the efficacy of this or that medicine in cancer treatment.

National University of Science and Technology MISIS postgraduates invented a titanium-zirconium-niobium alloy to be used in the production of artificial bones. The new material is as strong and resilient as bone tissue which gives it an edge over the existing counterparts. Thanks to these properties the implant retains the original shape throughout its much longer service life.
