Russian New University

Brief Outline

Russian New University (RosNOU), a non-governmental academy, came to the world eighteen years ago when a group of graduates of the so called “Phystech” – a world famous Moscow Institute of Applied Physics, founded by well known physicists and Nobel Prize winners P.L. Kapitsa, N.N. Semenov and L.D. Landau – decided to try and set to humanitarian education. The Moscow Institute of Applied Physics enjoys a solid reputation all over the world for its special system of training scientific experts.

It is no mere chance that the word “new” is included in the name of this higher education institution, because the academy represents an absolutely new model of scientific and educational establishment. The University progresses in the course of development. It took universities of such sort more than one decade to build a reputation in some other countries.

There is a spirit of cooperation in our University and currently Russian New University’s team of professors and tutors is working at developing an innovative system of training experts, enhancing scientific activity and widening international cooperation.

Some 25 thousands of experts have been trained at the University for the past 18 years.

Russian New University includes 5 Institutes, 8 Departments, 40 Sub-faculties and 17 Branches.

The teaching staff of the University has been training its students in compliance with 33 syllabuses of higher vocational training and 2 master’s degree curricula, 18 syllabuses of secondary vocational training, 18 syllabuses of post-graduate studies and several complementary educational curricula.

The teaching staff includes 700 professors and tutors, 70% of them with various academic degrees. There are academicians, Corresponding Members of AS and prominent professors lecturing at Russian New University. Many of them have been awarded various honorary titles: “Honored Scientist of RF”, “Honored Higher Education Worker of RF”, “Honorary Higher Vocational Training Worker of RF” and decorated with orders and medals of the USSR and RF governments. There are also a lot of USSR and RF prize-winners celebrated for their progress in scientific and educational work.

Scientific Research

RosNOU scientists are the authors of 3 scientific discoveries in the health care sphere and of about 30 inventions in nanotechnology, power engineering, and medical technologies.

The fundamental discovery “Mechanisms of arterial pressure waves spread with blood vessels”, made by Alekseev V.B., Zernov V.A., Matsuk S.A., Rudenko Y.M., the basic operating principle for the unique apparatus called “Kardiokord”. The apparatus predicts myocardial infarction half a year ahead of its actual strike and stroke – two months ahead.

Another discovery made in the health care sphere was made by Stupakov G.P., Sherbinina N.V., Semenov B.F., Rolik I.S. The scientists called it “Mechanisms involved in chronic diseases development with human organs and systems”. The essence of the method is to treat some chronic diseases as products of microbe and viral intoxication.

One can take a treatment course and improve his physical being at RosNOU Centre of Health Preserving Technologies.

The Head of RosNOU Scientific Centre “Endo-ecology”, Professor Levin Y.M., is the author of a new of field of medical science – “endo-ecological rehabilitation”. He developed effective methods of “one day” medical treatment and health improvement.

RosNOU Vice-rector, Professor Minaev V.A. and Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences Fadeev A.O. have developed methods of estimation and forecasting geo-ecological catastrophes (earthquakes, landslips and so on).

The Director of RosNOU Security Systems and Technology Institute, Professor Dvoryankin S.V. is the co-author of two inventions: the intellectual security server and the technology of video imagestransmission with unstable communication channels.

The Vice Director of the Institute V.P. Khrenov discovered laws of prime numbers formation, the problem he was the first to solve since the ancient times.

IT specialists of RosNOU have developed the University corporate information system “Vector” and the e-education system for the University branches. Microsoft and Croc companies are the University strategic partners in further improvement of the corporate information system “Vector”.

RosNOU Scientific and Innovation Division is the owner of inventions in nanotechnology and power engineering. Our scholars invented and developed:

  •     Method of DNA introduction into vegetable and animal cells by means of carbonic nanotubes
  •     Sizing compositions containing nanotubes that add to sizing capacity; the composition can be used to size Teflon
  •     Production technology of nanotubes containing fibers for industrial needs (for military production, tyre production and some others)
  •     Composition of nanomembranes, catalysts, nanometers, nanosensors, bio- and chemical meters to purify liquid and gas media
  •     Production technology of wind energy panels. A part of energy consumed by RosNOU is produced at its own wind energy plant.
