Ural Federal University (UrFU) and Eurasian National University (ENU) have signed an agreement to begin offering two double-degree programs by next school year.
The programs include joint master’s degrees in nuclear physics.
UrFU’s Institute of Physics and Technology, and ENU’s Faculty of Physical Engineering only recently finalized their plans for the programs. More details about the program will be made public in December at the scientific conference, Architecture, Construction and Transport: Problems and Prospects.
Viktor Koksharov, rector of UrFU, and Jamila Nurmanbetova, rector of ENU, signed the agreement following several meetings to work out the details at ENU in Astana.
ENU offers 61 undergraduate programs, 64 graduate degrees and 29 doctoral programs. Named after Lev Gumilev, the Russian scientist, historian, and ethnologist, the university has 1,678 instructors, with approximately 61 percent holding doctorate degrees in their fields.
