Master of Science in Chemical and Energy Engineering

The Master’s degree program “Chemical and Energy Engineering” is jointly implemented at the Institute of Aviation, Land Vehicles and Energetics of KNRTU-KAI with Faculty of Process and Systems Engineering of Otto von-Guericke-University Magdeburg.

The program is aimed to achieving practice-oriented knowledge and skills in the field of Heat and Power Engineering, Energetic Efficiency and Ecological Compatibility, and includes basic subjects such as Philosophical Problems of Engineering Knowledge, Economics and Production Management, Mathematical Modelling, Modern Problems of Energy and Heat Engineering, Thermal Engines, Problems of Energy Resource Saving in Energy and Heat Engineering, Renewable Energies, Ecological Safety, Principles of Effective Process Control in Energy and Heat Engineering, Product Quality, Chemistry as well as advanced subjects such as Advanced Fluid Dynamics, Advanced Heat and Mass Transfer, Mechanical Process Engineering, Chemical Reaction Engineering, Thermal Process Engineering, Process System Engineering, Combustion Engineering, Plant Design etc. High standards of teaching and research activity are provided by modern innovation infrastructure of leading Russian university and respective German university as well.

Also during studies students are involved to the performance of integrated projects, and at the end of studies they
prepare and defend final Master's degree thesis. It is assumed that each student will have two scientific supervisors:
one from side of Russian university and second from side of German university. Department of Power Engineering and Heat Engineering is a leading at the Institute of Aviation Land Vehicles and Energetics of KNRTU-KAI for joint Master's program with the University of Magdeburg within the project GRIAT. The department is well-known for its research works. It has close cooperation with several big companies such as JSC Kazan Aviation Production Association, JSC KamAZ, Holding of Integrated Energo-Development and others.
