DOUBLE DEGREE Master of Science Programs
There are nine MSc Double Degree programs that are currently implemented at GRIAT with the following German Partner-Universities:
- Communication and Signal Processing
- Research in Computer and Systems Engineering
- Automotive Engineering
- Electrical Engineering and Information Technology
- Chemical and Energy Engineering
- Systems Engineering and Engineering Cybernetics
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.
