Research equipment at the Faculty
Under the support of Russian Fund of Basic Research, various
international research programmes the strong equipment
base of the Faculty was created:
- Geological and sedimentological survey: oil products
analyzers, fluriometers, adsortptive spectrometers,
fluorescent analyzers, spectrophotometers, element
analyzers etc
- Geodesic survey: 3-d dimensional scanners etc.
- Hydrological survey: Doppler velocity-discharge profilers
(ADCP), current meters, etc.
- Meteorological survey: Doppler acoustic atmospheric

Part-time courses/ Continuing education
Part-time courses (continuing education) aim to upgrade students’
qualification, to enlarge professional attainments and experiences.
This education include practical trainings, master classes, lecture
courses.
Those courses focuses on the most relevant topics, such as ecology, sustainable
development, urbane geography, efficient natural management, tourism and
information technologies.
• The most distinctive features of part-time courses, that are offered by the faculty, are
as follows:
• Complex approach to education
• Presence of both theoretical and practical courses
• Compilation of individual schedule of training
• Organization of practical trainings and masterclasses
• Availability of international certificates
• Assistance of placing in a job
• Ramped payment of education
