CHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY OF WOOD. Qualification   engineer.


  • Chemical technology of pulp and paper industry
  • Technology of  wood chemical industry and bioactive substances
  • Product certification and chemical control of chemical wood-processing products

Training of chemical engineers has been carried out in AFEI-ASTU for  more than 75 years. On completion this programme the graduates are employed in largest enterprises of pulp and paper industry, newly established enterprises of wood chemical industry to process needles, leaves and twigs, to obtain and process charcoal and activated carbon, and many other valuable products. Many students do research work and can be employed in  the following positions: process engineer, project and design engineer, research worker. Career prospects for chemists are available in all branches of  national economy. Training for this programme is ranked as excellent. Recently the programme in product certification and chemical control of various products was started.

The programme is aimed at full-time students (lasts for 5 years) and  part-time students (lasts for 6 years), and can be studied both on budgetary and contractual basis.


Metrology engineers control products (services) and manufacturing processes, equipment of enterprises and  testing laboratories, work out methods and tools of measurement, test and  control, normative documentation, systems of quality standardization, certification and control, provide metrological support of scientific, industrial, social and environmental spheres. Chief metrologist in the company is  the head of metrology service which deals with automation systems of  manufacturing processes, installation, repair and maintenance of control and  measuring instruments.

The programme is aimed at full-time students (lasts for 5 years), and  can be studied both on budgetary and contractual basis.


The graduates operate devices, systems, complexes and  main medical equipment. They also work out methods of research, therapeutic intervention, data processing in the sphere of medical care and different areas of biomedical testing. Newly introduced area of training is aimed at developing and operating medical computer systems and telehealth centres and studios. Career prospects are available in city and regional hospitals, polyclinics, enterprises and companies producing medical devices, research and development institutes and laboratories.

The programme is aimed at full-time students (lasts for 5 years), and  can be studied both on budgetary and contractual basis.

QUALITY MANAGEMENT. Qualification  engineer-manager.


  • Quality management in industry
  • Quality management in socioeconomics
  • Quality management in information systems

An engineer-manager deals with designing systems of quality management, providing their effective functioning, meeting quality requirements of  processes, goods, services and products of the companys activity. When training specialists in quality management focus is placed on studying computer, economic and management subjects (personnel management, management and financial accounting, management, etc). The fields of the graduates professional activity are as follows: management, organization, economics, audit, information analysis, innovations, consulting and teaching.

The programme is aimed at full-time students (lasts for 5 years), and  can be studied both on budgetary and contractual basis.

CHEMISTRY. Qualification  chemist.

The programme was started in 2007. Training is organized in the department of  theoretical and applied chemistry being the centre of chemical studies conducted collectively with M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University. In 2001 the  department was reorganized into intercollegiate department MSU-ASTU.

Knowledge gained allow the graduates to be employed in  research and development institutes, industrial enterprises, chemical and  chemistry-related laboratories, educational institutions, also in the area of  appraisal and services, customs offices and criminalistic laboratories.

The programme is aimed at full-time students (lasts for 5 years), and  can be studied both on budgetary and contractual basis.





CHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY AND BIOTECHNOLOGY. Degree obtained  a Bachelors degree in engineering and technology.

The programme prepares its graduates for a wide range of employment opportunities related to those branches of industry which deal with the use of microorganisms and enzymes. They are pulp and paper industry, production of vegetable and carbohydrate feed, ethyl alcohol and ethanol fuel, bakery and feeding yeast, biological treatment of sewage water, etc. There appeared branches of biotechnology: food, agriculture, medicine, energy, environment, biogeotechnology, bioelectronics.

The programme is aimed at full-time students (lasts for 4 years), and  can be studied on budgetary and contractual basis. On completion the programme the graduates may study full-time for a Masters degree programme (lasts for 2 years).
