Doctoral Program “Petroleum Chemistry” | Siberian Federal University

Doctoral Program “Petroleum Chemistry”

The purpose of the educational program is to prepare scientific and scientific-pedagogical personnel of the highest qualification for activities that require in-depth fundamental and professional training and knowledge in the field of oil refining and petrochemistry, including research work and pedagogical activities.

The program is designed to create knowledge about

  • improvement of technologies for deep oil refining;
  • methods of commercial fuels upgrading;
  • development of modern oilfield chemicals.

The objects of professional activity of graduates who have mastered this educational program are oil as a natural object and the most important source of chemical raw materials, the processes of converting oil into chemical products, and chemical methods of increasing oil recovery.

The University

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.

More information

The campus of Siberian Federal University is located in a forested area of the city of Krasnoyarsk. Academic buildings and dormitories of the university are surrounded by natural forest lands and easily accessible by the public transport. More information about the University Campus can be found here.

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 March 2019 Krasnoyarsk proudly hosted the XXIX Winter Universiade.
