Novosibirsk State University is located in Akademgorodok, which is a unique environment with a high concentration of science, education and knowledge-based business. NSU students get involved in research work in research institutes of Akademgorodok, in institutes of science and education at NSU and innovative companies. Established in 1959, Novosibirsk University today includes a boarding high school (Physics and Mathematics School), a Higher College of Informatics, 9 Departments, a Postgraduate Study Department, a School of Professional Retraining and Vocational Education and a Research Department.
The University was set up in the scientific center of Novosibirsk, Akademgorodok, where the university, campus and research institutes are conveniently located nearby. Due to it, NSU students can do research while studying and continue their research studies after the graduation.
Ever since it was founded, the University aims at training high-profile specialists for science, education and science-intensive industry. Systems integration is a key factor in developing relations between science and education, and this model is successfully implemented in collaboration with businesses. NSU has launched a number of joint research centers, laboratories and academic centers with worldwide industry leaders in IT and other areas, such as Intel, HP, Parallels, etc.
The faculty members at NSU include about 80% of the staff of Novosibirsk Scientific Center research institutes, who represent world-class scientific schools and train students. The NSU research laboratories conduct cutting edge research pushing the boundaries of human knowledge.
The monitoring equipment developed at NSU, for instance, is used in the satellite navigation systems of the Russian global positioning system (GLONASS). Our laser systems find a broad market both in Russia and world-wide. NSU contributes to such promising areas of science as nanotechnologies in all the spheres, electronics, medical biotechnologies, laser systems, innovative therapies for more effective cancer treatment, molecular design of new medical supplies, biodegradation of oily wastes, etc.
