This September, TUSUR University launched a new dual degree Master program in Information and Communication Technology and Communication Systems, implemented by the TUSUR Department of Telecommunications and Basic Principles of Radio Engineering.
Academic cooperation with France and francophone countries is among the most productive lines of international activities for TUSUR University. Today, TUSUR students have access to academic mobility program with over a dozen of French schools, with areas of cooperation encompassing nearly every dimension of the University’s activities. One of the priority areas of cooperation with France for TUSUR is its dual degree programs.
In addition to the new program offered together with Polytech Nantes, TUSUR implements dual degree programs with the French University of Limoges and with Ritsumeikan University (Japan). The University’s programs with its French partners enjoy a strategically important support from the Rossotrudnichestvo Office in France and the Embassy of France in Russia, the latter offering scholarship opportunities for students and grants for university employees within the framework of the André Mason program.
Launched in September 2018, the new program in Information and Communication Technology and Communication System (specialization in Wireless On-Board Systems) is currently taken by a group of students from Russia, Algeria and France. After a year in Tomsk, they will go to France to complete their program at Polytech Nantes.
«Since the program is new, in its first year we still have a large number of matters that need to be settled with our French partner. Since we will be jointly supervising thesis research, face-to-face discussions are an important part of our communications. The Embassy of France in Russia has given us a tremendous support by funding the visit of two university representatives to France within the framework of the André Mason program,» says Evgeny Rogozhnikov, Associate Professor of the TUSUR Department of Telecommunications and Basic Principles of Radio Engineering. The trip to Nantes will be used to visit to the University’s laboratories and hold meetings and workshops with the colleagues responsible for the program.
