Technosphere Safety in the High North and Arctic Regions

The program is aimed at providing students with unique engineering knowledge and practical skills for managing diverse industrial challenges occurred in the High North and Arctic regions. These territories are of great importance for commercial developments as well as for political interests. Moreover, the major part of Siberia is located in the High North and Arctic regions resulting in the long-term experience of the territories development. The program “Technosphere Safety in the High North and Arctic Regions” focuses on safety assurance and maintenance of a comfortable environment for work and living in technosphere on the basis of positive current experience and up-to-date technical developments.


The program “Technosphere Safety in the High North and Arctic Regions” is designed to give students professional skills and knowledge in the following areas:

  • arrangement and coordination of operations directed at workers’ health and safety protection;
  • compliance monitoring;
  • fire safety and fire prevention procedures;
  • sustainable development of national economic assets in conditions of the High North and Arctic Regions;
  • environment, safety, and health;
  • environmental expertise.

Learning outcomes

Upon successful completion of the program, graduates will be able to:

  • define and consider problems of national economic assets, formulate and solve engineering tasks in the area of Technosphere safety;
  • design and develop systems for environmental safety of the High North and Arctic regions taking into account diverse technological factors;
  • apply control technologies for particularly dangerous wastes in the High North and Arctic regions, including cavitation technology of desalination of sea water and groundwater, wastewater treatment in circumpolar areas, including Russia, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Canada and the United States;
