TPU and University of Burgundy - Franche-Comte Launch Double Degree Program in Physics

Tomsk Polytechnic University and the University of Burgundy - Franche-Comté (France) have started the application period for a Master program in Physics with major in Condensed Matter Physics.

The program is implemented by the TPU Division for Experimental Physics at the School of Nuclear Science & Engineering. Professor Andrey Lider is the TPU program manager and Stefan Geran, head of Laboratoire Interdisciplinaire Carnot de Bourgogne (ICB) and supervisor of a program in Physics, Photonics and Nanotechnology (PNN), represents the University of Burgundy.

“The double degree program is an excellent opportunity to obtain two diplomas of Russian and a foreign university. Furthermore, it is the evidence of comprehensive training which meets Russian and international academic standards, professional recognition, and an advantage for employment,”

Andrey Lider says.

The program curriculum implies the presentation of a master's thesis at both Tomsk Polytechnic University and the University of Burgundy. Students will live and study at a campus of the University of Burgundy in the small town of Dijon located near the capital of France.

Furthermore, the second year master’s students can study a major in Physics, Photonics and Nanotechnology at the University of Burgundy (International Master Physics, Photonics and Nanotechnology).

The students who want to enroll in the double degree program should meet additional requirements, such as proficiency levelin English B2 or above.
