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. Since 1965, over 70 students completed the graduate study programs, almost half of which were awarded the doctoral degree of Kandidat Nauk.

Currently, six students are enrolled on a full-time basis and six students are in the part-time study program. They all hold a Specialist Diploma (S.D., equivalent to the M.S. degree) required for admission.
The full-time program takes 3 years to complete, and the part-time program requires 4 years of study and research.
