Along with theory study, lectures, and seminars, comprehensive practical trainings at MEPhI laboratories and facilities at collaborating research and educational centers are parts of the educational plan. Substantive education and scientific research activities are important course components.
Graduated masters have overall knowledge of particle accelerators, nuclear and physical facilities, electronic and automated control systems, medical radiation technologies, mathematical simulation models for theoretical and experimental research of different charged particle physics aspects, environmental and ecological monitoring, and safety of nuclear materials, facilities and installations used in atomic industry and power engineering.
Bachelors and specialists graduated on "Nuclear Physics and Technology" could apply to this course. Applicants with practical work background especially in this filed core organizations have an advantage.
Basic professional training and educational program comprises the following special topics:
- electrophysical facilities and technologies;
- microwave technics, microwave electronics and engineering;
- vacuum technics and physical electronics;
- electronics of electrophysical facilities;
- information technologies of electrophysical facilities.
Additional or optional subjects are also proposed for study, namely:
- radio frequency instrument design;
- electrophysical facility magnetic systems;
- electromagnetic interference;
- intense electron beams;
- charged particle beam conveying and distribution;
- electromagnetic wave slow-down systems.
These additional subjects are to be chosen by a student according to his preferences or by his future employment features.
Scientific and facility-dedicated practice is hosted by leading Russian institutions; Rosatom subsidiaries [e.g., National Research Centre "Kurchatov Institute" and Russian Federal Nuclear Center – All-Russia Research Institute of Experimental Physics (Sarov)], and international collaborations between domestic and foreign research centers [e.g., Large Hadron Collider collaboration coordinated by CERN and FAIR Russia Research Centre and Helmholtz Association (Germany)]. Educational course supervisor and director: A. N. Didenko, corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Dr. Phys.-Math Sc., Head of Department.
