ShanghaiRanking has released the ShanghaiRanking’s Global Ranking of Academic Subjects 2020. This is one of the most respected rankings in the world. In the Russian segment, TSU has taken a leading position in Earth Sciences (1st-4th
place), Metallurgy (3rd place), and Physics (6th place).
In the world segment of the ranking, TSU is in the group 101-150 in metallurgy, and this is the result of many years of work by the university in this area. In the near future, TSU will update the instrument base and some of the new equipment will be purchased at the request of metallurgical scientists.
Ilya Zhukov’s team works in this area, creating light alloys based on aluminum and magnesium; Manzur Ziyatdinov’s group is engaged in high-nitrogen steels; and Vladimir Promakhov is engaged in additive technologies. Research in metallophysics is being carried out by the scientific groups of Professor Victor Gunther and Professor Yuri Chumlyakov.
In the ShanghaiRanking 2020 for academic subjects, TSU showed its traditionally good results in Physics, entering the group 401-500. This is also the result of many years of successful work in world-class projects. TSU staff participates in several experiments at the Large Hadron Collider – ATLAS, TOTEM, and CMS in CERN.
The university is also in the group 401-500 in the Earth Sciences, thanks to research on climate change and the search for new deposits of valuable minerals, non-ferrous and noble metals, coal, and hydrocarbons.
