Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences (FMNS)

The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at Saint Petersburg University of Science and Technology is a leading institution that offers a wide range of undergraduate and graduate degrees in various fields of mathematics and natural sciences. Our faculty aims to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and competencies needed to excel in the scientific exploration and discovery of the natural world and its phenomena. Our programs are designed to foster curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking among our students and graduates.

Our faculty offers the following majors of programs:

  • Mathematics: This program educates students on how to use the language and logic of mathematics to model, analyze, and solve problems in various domains, such as science, engineering, and economics. Students learn the concepts and methods of mathematics, such as algebra, calculus, geometry, analysis, discrete mathematics, and statistics, as well as the applications and implications of mathematics, such as cryptography, optimization, and modeling.
  • Physics: This program trains students to become proficient in the study of the physical laws and principles that govern the behavior and interactions of matter and energy. Students learn the fundamentals and advanced topics of physics, such as mechanics, thermodynamics, electromagnetism, optics, quantum physics, and relativity, as well as the experimental and computational techniques of physics, such as measurement, simulation, and instrumentation.
  • Geology: This program prepares students for careers in the investigation and understanding of the origin, structure, composition, and evolution of the Earth and its processes. Students learn the concepts and techniques of geology, such as mineralogy, petrology, geochemistry, geophysics, paleontology, and stratigraphy, as well as the applications and implications of geology, such as natural resources, natural hazards, and environmental issues.
  • Astronomy and Astrophysics: This program develops students’ understanding and skills in the observation and interpretation of the celestial objects and phenomena in the universe. Students learn the concepts and theories of astronomy and astrophysics, such as celestial mechanics, stellar structure and evolution, galactic and extragalactic astronomy, cosmology, and astrobiology, as well as the tools and methods of astronomy and astrophysics, such as telescopes, spectroscopy, and data analysis.
  • Chemistry: This program equips students with the knowledge and skills to create and manipulate the substances and reactions that make up the matter and energy of the world. Students learn the principles and practices of chemistry, such as atomic and molecular structure, chemical bonding, chemical reactions, thermodynamics, kinetics, and equilibrium, as well as the branches and applications of chemistry, such as organic, inorganic, analytical, physical, and biochemistry.

Our faculty is committed to providing our students with the best learning experience and outcomes, as well as the opportunities and support to achieve their academic and professional goals. We invite you to join our faculty and become part of our vibrant and diverse community of learners, educators, and scientists.
