General information[edit]

Possible research topics are listed below. Anyone can take part in research, regardless of age, education, etc. In particular, the research can be carried out both by pupils and students. These studies can provide the basis of bachelor, master's or Ph.D. thesis, also it allows you to take part in research and commercial projects performed by the Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics SPbSPU.

Virtually all the research topics combine both fundamental and applied studies.
