The program is developed to provide students with in-depth knowledge and understanding of extractive metallurgy of non-ferrous metals.
The objectives of the program are to give a fundamental understanding of the principles of extractive metallurgy, to develop practical skills that are required for a future professional career and to prepare graduates to work effectively as members of professional team and to continue their education through advanced trainings.
On completion of this program, it is expected that students will be able to:
- derive and apply solutions from theoretical knowledge of metallurgical processes;
- formulate and solve engineering problems;
- evaluate engineering solutions from the standpoint of product quality and environmental protection;
- communicate effectively.
Diploma and degree: Master of Engineering Science (Metallurgy).
Career opportunities: with a Master’s degree in Metallurgy you can get a position of in-house specialist in a mining and metallurgical company. Moreover, our graduates pursue successful careers as academics and researchers.
Research career: the Master’s degree holder can continue studying to earn a PhD SibFU degree.

Today Siberian Federal University (SibFU) with over 35,000 students enrolled in its programmes is one of the most actively developing universities in Russia. Annually more than 200 visiting professors – leading scientists from UK, Germany, Spain and USA – deliver their lectures at SibFU.
The University is a winner of the Russian Government grants supporting research projects under the guidance of top-level scholars from Russia and all over the world.
The City of Krasnoyarsk
Krasnoyarsk is the administrative capital of Krasnoyarsky kray – second largest region of Russia. It is a big industrial and educational centre with a population of more than 1 million people, and also an important junction of the Trans-Siberian Railway.
The city is located on the banks of the Yenisey River in the valley formed by the Eastern Sayan Mountains. Nature reserve Stolby ("pillars") has become the city’s visiting card.
Among the famous people born in Krasnoyarsk are artist Vasily Surikov, opera singer Dmitri Hvorostovsky, biathlete Evgeny Ustyugov, skeletonist Alexander Tretyakov and ice-hockey player Alexander Semin.
In 2019 Krasnoyarsk will proudly host the XXIX Winter Universiade.
