Attraction of talented youth at the L.N. Gumilyov ENU Physical-Technical Faculty, one of the leading scientific centers of the Republic of Kazakhstan in the field of Physics.

The University has:

Eurasian International Centre for Theoretical Physics

Earth Space Monitoring Center

Astana branch of the Institute of Nuclear Physics NNC RK.

Institute of Physics and Technology

Laboratory of Radiation Physics and Solid-State Spectroscopy

Laboratory of Nanotechnologies and New Materials

All of these research centers require constant influx of talented youth. Currently L.N. Gumilyov ENU accepts to Baccalaureate on the following specialties:

Nuclear physics (double-degree)

Physics (natural-scientific direction)

Technical Physics

Radio engineering, Electronics and Telecommunications

Space Techniques and Technology

Graduate School is also functioning on the abovementioned specialties.

Supporting the international educational and scientific relations with foreign scientific centers, scientists of the Faculty conduct training of doctors of philosophy (PhD) in 6D060500 – “Nuclear physics” and 01.04.00 – “Physics”. PhD students conduct research in the laboratories of foreign partners’ faculties (Switzerland, Bulgaria, Italy, Poland, China, Slovakia, Estonia, United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Russia, Ukraine, etc.)
