DOUBLE DEGREE Master of Science Programs
There are eight MSc Double Degree programs that are currently implemented at GRIAT with the following German Partner-Universities:
- Communication and Signal Processing (Partner-University: Ilmenau University of Technology)
- Research in Computer and Systems Engineering (Partner-University: Ilmenau University of Technology)
- Automotive Engineering (Partner-University: Ilmenau University of Technology)
- Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (Partner-University: Otto-von Guericke University Magdeburg)
- Chemical and Energy Engineering (Partner-University: Otto-von Guericke University Magdeburg)
- Systems Engineering and Engineering Cybernetics (Partner-University: Otto-von Guericke University Magdeburg)
- Embedded Computing Systems (Partner-University: Technical University of Kaiserslautern)
- Aerospace Engineering (Partner-University: Technical University of Braunschweig)
In the near future GRIAT will launch new MSc degree programs jointly with at least three German partner universities: TU Braunschweig, Saarland University, Darmstadt University of Technology (TU Darmstadt) in the field of Aircraft Engineering, Quantum Technologies, Microelectronics, Computer Vision Systems, Modern Photonics, Software Engineering in Embedded Systems and others.
Double degree programs enhance students‘ independent study and research skills, develop critical thinking, ability to live and work in a multicultural environment, think outside the box, become more flexible, accepting of differences and tolerant, and of course, GRIAT broadens students‘ horizons. Students have more opportunities to get internships in the leading German and Russian companies; do cutting-edge research with the best German and Russian professors; apply for joint PhD programs.
During the first two semesters of their MSc educational programs GRIAT students study at KNRTU-KAI in Kazan, the third semester they study at a German partner university, for the fourth semester students go back to Russia or may stay in Germany to finish writing their MSc thesis. Each year two German professors fly in as a “flying faculty” to give lectures at TU Kazan in each MSc program for a period of 10 to 20 days. A German language teacher (native speaker) offers German language classes during the first two semesters in Kazan, and GRIAT students enroll into German language classes while they are in Germany. The basic medium of instruction is English in Russia and Germany.
