History of the educational program begins with creation of research laboratory «Stratigraphy of oil-and-gas bearing reservoirs». The laboratory is the unique platform for interaction of scientific KFU and the Freiberg Academy, which became ideological inspirers of the master program «Geology», « Stratigraphy».
«The idea of connection at scientific research and education has appeared us with professor Jörg Schneider at the same time within scientific work at laboratory. And we have decided to teach our students. Especially, for Germany it's commonplace experience. They have a big network of similar agreements, including with Russia, therefore the contract with KFU has been signed quickly», - the head of laboratory from the Russian side Vladimir V.

For that matter, Kazan State University doesn't concede in this regard to capital universities. Thanks to our University for equipment of laboratory, for an opportunity of work with the best equipment».
«The level of knowledge, which is given at Institute of Geology and Petroleum Technologies is very high. And already we have added the KFU's theoretical base with Freiberg academy's practical knowledge», - added Zharinova Veronika, the graduate student.
Students have also told about the further plans in scientific activity, about receipt in a postgraduate study and intentions of going to the Germany once more for working in scientific laboratories. The educational program has received a good start, and will be implemented on a constant basis.
