More than 750 students study and about 100 highly qualified professors work at the departments of mathematics, mechanics and pedagogical education.
The education is supported by ten departments and the laboratory of computer facilities equipped with high-performance systems. The Institute collaborates with leading Universities, research centres and industrial enterprises in Russian Federation, neighbouring and foreign countries.
Main research areas are: Fundamental and Applied Mathematics, Fluid and Solid Mechanics.
Following the principles of Bologna declaration, Nikolai Lobachevsky Institute of Mathematics and Mechanics implements educational programs of two levels:
- Bachelor's Degree program (first cycle) provides students with the knowledge according to the specialty chosen and basic information from other academic fields. After completion the graduate receives a state Diploma of higher education with the Bachelor's Degree conferred. The Bachelor's Diploma gives the opportunity to hold a position including higher education as a qualification criterion.
