Engineering training in English medium in IIAAT SUAI

International Institute for Advanced Aerospace Technologies (IIAAT) of SUAI has a great positive experience in training foreign students in English medium. During 15 years of IAAT activity in education and research in aerospace instrumentation the dozens of foreign students and specialists have been trained and graduated with SUAI diploma.

We invite foreign students and post-graduates for training in different aspects of aerospace instrumentation, navigation and motion control according the following four directions.

1. Short-term (during 2–6 months) training of master students in the selected areas of aerospace instrumentation, navigation and motion control systems design that provides the theoretical knowledge and practical skills useful at defense of master thesis.

The list of possible themes of training for 2017 is attached.

The fee is 500 euro per a month according the agreement between SUAI and student’s basic university or other customer.

2. Full-scale master training during 2 years (4 semesters) in aerospace instrumentation with obtaining the State Diploma of the Russian Ministry of Education and science. English working language is used. The group of 10–12 students is required. It may be shaped by the National Space Agency or Aeronautical Administration of any country. In this case, the tuition fee for each student is 9000 euro per year. The individual students can apply also, but the group is preferable.

It is assumed that incoming students have received a bachelor's degree in a fairly prestigious university with high marks.

If bachelor degree and training curriculum does not fully meet the SUAI standards, it is possible to pass the preliminary training courses lasting 3–6 months (before the actual master training) for recovering the necessary background in mathematics, physics, programming, astronautics and obtaining the initial level of Russian language for everyday needs.

3. Short-term (during 2–3 weeks) training of specialists in specific technologies of aerospace instrumentation, navigation and motion control. Lectures are given in English by the professors with highest scientific titles.

Labs visiting and sightseeing in St.-Petersburg are provided also. The number of specialists in the training group may be 8–14. The fee is USD 230 for each hour of lectures according the agreement with SUAI. The ordinary number of hours in the course is 50.

4. PhD training in the field of aerospace instrumentation, navigation and motion control during 4 years. The purpose of training is defense of PhD thesis and obtaining the scientific title. The working language is English. The fee is USD 13000 per year.

The contact person for these four directions of training is: Prof. Dr. Alexander Nebylov, Director, International Institute for Advanced Aerospace Technologies of State University of Aerospace Instrumentation, Honored Scientist of the Russian Federation, Head of Department #11 of SUAI
