One of the world trends in education evolution is innovative international educational programs development and implementation. Since 1998 Tomsk Polytechnic University actively pursues a policy of integration in world educational space. The year 2000 saw the initial preparation of Masters Degree Programs in High-Tech for the international market. The basis of new programs is integration of the scientific and educational potential of TPU (the oldest technical university in Eastern part of Russia) and academic research institutes in Tomsk, international cooperation with the foreign universities (use of TPU branches on the basis of foreign universities) and innovative technology of studies. The technology of studies assumes an element of distance learning (1st year) and laboratory practicum with preparation of a master's thesis based at TPU (2nd year). Distance learning assumes direct contact between student and professor at adjusting lectures and examinations (10% of the total time for distance learning) and independent work on the part of the student with teaching materials (textbook, tasks, testing materials), which are available in an Internet teaching environment - WebCT (Web Course Tools). Now TPU calls students' attention to six M.Sc. Programs in High-Tech: ▪ in Material Science (Computer Design of New Materials, MegaElectronics), ▪ in Electrical Engineering (Discharge and Plasma Technology, Methods and Instruments for Non-Destructive Quality Testing), ▪ in Applied Physics (Physics of Condensed Matter, Generation and Application of Electromagnetic Radiation).
