Development projects

Campus of the Polar State University


The construction of a new campus of PSU is one of the main development projects of the University for the next few years. This applies not only to the construction itself, but also to the prospects of higher education in the whole Polar Region.

It is not a secret that sometimes students who graduate from the university and come to work for the enterprises of MMC “Nornickel” cannot adapt to the specifics of working in the Arctic while having excellent skills and abilities.

Our new campus will help to attract and educate a large number of students from other cities and make here real northerners out of them.

Arctic Permafrost Center

Arctic Permafrost Center

Fedorovsky Polar State University is the only university on Taymir and in the Norilsk industrial district which defines requests to it for personnel, research and engineering support of key projects in the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation both for public and private clients.

The main purpose of this Center is to organize and conduct permafrost research on the territory of Taymir and Norilsk industrial region as well as to attract industrial and scientific organizations to cooperation in this sphere.

The center’s developments may become the basis for the work planning under the Norilsk renovation program until 2035. In this program all the peculiarities of engineering and geocryological conditions will be taken into account and only the technologies which will pass experimental-industrial tests on the territory of permafrost polygons of the Arctic Center will be used.
