Overview

We were the first engineering school in Russia’s Siberia and the Far East to open its doors in 1896. Today we are one of Russia’s leading public research universities with focus on applied science and technology. We are a research university with a strong tradition of excellence in physics, applied engineering, and electronics. Recently, we added nanotechnologies and alternative energy to our research portfolio. TPU’s annual research budget of $30 million ranks second among technical and engineering schools in the country. Roughly ten per cent of funding comes from outside Russia; we rank second to none in this category. 2 bln Rub is amount of R&D (2nd among Russian universities), 112 mln(rub) Income from International Contracts (1st among Russian universities), and 1 bln(rub) Amount of R&D for Industrial Partners (3rd among Russian universities).
 
We are the only academic institution beyond the Urals operating a nuclear reactor on campus for educational purposes. Our nuclear facility has been operational since 1967 and has been playing a major role in our research effort.

Our school offers a wide variety of programs, and we have about 13,500 students enrolled. However, our strengths in teaching go well beyond numbers. We maintain a placement system that connects graduates with prospective employers. As a result, 95 percent of our graduates had job offers at graduation.

We offer a number of double degree programs through partnership agreements with schools in Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Czech Republic and Kazakhstan. Well over 3,000 international students are enrolled in our programs, making Tomsk Polytechnic a truly multicultural institution. A number of multinationals — Microsoft, Danfoss, Lapp Group, SolidWorks — operate research units on our campus.
