GRADUATE STUDIES



The Melnikov Permafrost Institute offers graduate study programs (Aspirantura) in engineering geology, geocryology and geotechnical engineering leading to the Kandidat Nauk (Ph.D. equivalent) degrees in geography, geology & mineralogy, and engineering. The full-time program takes 3 years to complete, and the part-time program requires 4 years of study and research. Since 1965, over 80 students completed the graduate study programs, almost half of which were awarded the doctoral degree of Kandidat Nauk. Currently, twelve students are enrolled in the full-time program.
