There are five Faculties, namely:
Faculty of Natural and Social Sciences and Humanities
Faculty of Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering
Faculty of Marine Engineering
Faculty of Marine Electronics and Control Systemes
Faculty of Business and Management
Each Faculty is run by a Dean who coordinates the work of Departments.
A Department includes teachers and supporting personnel and is headed by a Chief. International students are supervised by the Department of International Affairs and Education.
The Faculty of Natural and Social Sciences and Humanities reflects the great diversity of the present day MTU. It has grown from the School of Engineering Fundamentals that traditionally provided basic instruction for all first and second year students.
The main educational goal of the Faculty is to prepare students for advanced studies in the chosen areas.
In recent years new educational programmes have been developed. They are designed to provide full-course instruction within the Faculty. Five year programmes supervised by the Departments of Mathematics and Physics allow students to qualify as secondary school teachers. Along with the development of degree and Diploma courses in Engineering the MTU is particularly anxious to attract students equally concerned with humanities and social sciences.
Those students who prefer concentrating on social studies can undertake full-time courses leading to a Diploma of Sociologist or a Diploma of Lawyer; one of the options in Jurisprudence courses being International Marine Legislation. The graduates are expected to have job careers far beyond the engineering sphere.
The Departments listed below currently contribute to any Degree or Diploma program:
• Applied Geometry and Computer-aided Drawing
• Materials Science
• Strength of Materials
• Foreign Languages
• Russian Language
• Physical Training
• History and Culture
• Social Sciences
• Political Studies
The Faculty of Marine Engineering has been for many years producing Mechanical Engineers with concentration on marine power installations covering the spheres of research, design, manufacturing, assembling, operation and maintenance of all sorts of ship engines.
At present the distinctions between the traditional branches of Engineering are becoming increasingly artificial as technology brings together new developments from different disciplines. Therefore, besides traditional curricula providing instruction in Mechanical Engineering all educational courses regardless of the specified field include interdisciplinary ingredients.
The basic technical knowledge and skills required for any programme are taught in a core syllabus over the first two years of the course.
Junior and senior subject sequences and further postgraduate instruction reflect the fields of concentration: internal combustion engines, marine turbines and turbine units or nuclear power installations.
The Faculty of Marine Electronics and Control Systems traditionally produced professionals with career prospects in the ocean-related defence sphere. Most of the educational programmes were designed to enable graduates to cope with technologies relevant to naval systems including navigation and control. Following the conversion policy the Faculty has developed new educational programmes focused on training designers and manufacturers of underwater vessel equipment for exploration and use of ocean resources.
New educational goals are reflected in new courses which provide preparation for engineers of the 21-st century capable of design, control and operation of up-todate control systems and navigation instrumentation involving robotics and artificial intelligence technologies for all type of underwater vessels.
The Faculty of Business and Management was originally designed to provide professionals in the sphere of financial activities of the state enterprises with emphasis on the shipbuilding sector. The programmes reflected the policy of the centralised economy that met the demands of the society.
Graduates traditionally had employment at Accounting Departments of shipbuilding plants and research institutions of marine-related industries. They also moved into prestigious positions in different non-profit and government enterprises.
At present the Faculty understands its educational goals as follows:
to produce business economists and managers compatible to meet the challenges of exceedingly changing environment and to equip students with analytic tools and practical skills along with maximum flexibility and adaptability providing their successful professional practice.
