Tomsk Polytechnic University, Russia

TPU was the first engineering school in Siberian region of Russia established as early as 1896.It focuses on applied science and technology research and has proved its mettle by excelling in the domain of public research.TPI gained the status of a Technical University in 1991 owing to its progressive academic and research achievements. Complex Development Programmes commonly called CDP have been used and TPU has been working in compliance with the CDP to achieve education and research goals.TPU was the first winner of the innovative educational programmes competition in the Education category. In 2009, TPU was one of the institutions to have won in the first round for the National Research University status.

Research is crucial in TPU and their specialized area is engineering and applied sciences. Recently nanotechnology and alternative energy have been the fields where research has been carried out .They have a fat research budget with the annual budget at $30 million. Approximately 10% of this funding comes from outside the country. They have an unmatchable USP that nobody could think of. They have an on campus nuclear power reactor for educational purposes and this has been functioning since 1967.

As far as the student publications are concerned they rank second in Russia. They also have a placement system which provides access to potential employers for the students. Around 95% of students have job offers on graduation. In 2015 at their career fair, 105 employers were invited and 7000 students obtained internship opportunities.

They have over 3000 international students enrolled for various courses making it a nucleus of multicultural diversity. They also have international partnership programmes with countries such as Germany, France, United Kingdom, the Czech Republic and Kazakhstan. Various multinational organisations such as Microsoft, Danfoss, Lapp Group, SolidWorks have research units in the TPU campus.

TPU is part of the CDIO framework which is nothing but the Conceiving-Designing-Implementing-Operating framework proposed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Conference of European Schools for Advanced Engineering Education and Research (CESAER). TPU is also an associate member of Consortium Linking Universities of Science and Technology for Education and Research (CLUSTER)
