UTMN Strategic Aim

A  strategic  objective  of  UTMN  is  to create a new-generation university through the reorganization of its human resources policy, its core assets (educational, research, innovative) and institutional environment, and by means of comprehensive upgrading of infrastructure..

The background for UTMN reorganization into the university of next generation is the following: 

  1. availability  of  world-class  research  teams  for  the set  of  disciplines; 

  2. support for  the  programme  from  the  Governor  of  the  Tyumen  Region  and  readiness  to  finance the implementation  of  its  separate  actions; 
  3. availability  of  "strategic team”,  aimed  at  deep  reorganization  of  the  university;
  4. support  for  the  present  programme  from  the  Heads  of  several  regions  of  Russia  and leading  Russian  companies,  interested  in  reorganization  of  the  University  and  ready  to participate  in  generating  the  required  conditions  (ref.  the  Letters  of  Support); 
  5. wide range of directions for training at all educational levels, balanced set of science, liberal arts and  engineering  sections  (comprehensive  university):  natural  science  –  16,53%, humanitarian – 57,39%, engineering – 26.08%;
  6. the university’s great fraction of income from extra-budgetary sources (69%);
  7. developed IT infrastructure.

In 2007–2008  the  University  implemented  the  innovative  education  programme “Generation  of  innovative  educational  complex  for  University  of  Tyumen  to  provide effective  environmental  management  in  conditions  of  intensive  resources development within  Western  Siberia”  (414 mln.RUB).  In  2008  it  participated  in  the  target  programme “Development  of  nanotech  industry  infrastructure  in  the  Russian  Federation" (126 mln.RUB).  In  2010–2013  it  won  4  national  competitions  of  Ministry  of  Education and Science of the Russian Federation:

1.  for the development  of  innovative  infrastructure  of  the  university (114.3 mln. RUB);

2.  for the development of hightech quality production (480 mln.RUB);

2.1.  “Development  of  technology  and  mobile  equipment  system  for  oil  and  gas production  waste  handling”  together  with  JSC  Gaspromneft-Noyabrskneftegas  (2010–2012);

2.2.  "Development  and  serial  production  of  measuring  equipment  to  meter produced  oil  and  gas  within  the  fields  at  late  life”  together  with  OJSC  HMS  Neftemash (2013–2015).

3.  Implementation  of  research  project  with the involvement  of a leading  scientist: during the project  realization  the  laboratory  of  water  quality,  aquatic  ecosystem  stability  and ecotoxicology  was  founded  in  UTMN and was  headed by Tatiana  Moiseenko,  A. M. of the Academy of Sciences (Vernadsky Institute) (100 mln. RUB).

In  2015  the  results  of  the  open  competition made it possible for the UTMN to form  the Engineering  center in the framework of which  the  project  "Compound  materials on  the basis  of  tungsten and rare-earth elements”  (100 mln. RUB) was implemented.

Consequently,  the fraction of income from research and scientific developments for the last 4 years increased by 9.58% and contributed to the general income of the university. 

To  achieve  the  strategic  objective,  the university has selected seven challenging frontiers  (research  frontiers, centers of  excellence) relevant  to world  research  notification:  1) advanced  production  technologies, 2) photonics,  3) neurotechnologies,  4) environmental  remediation,  5) socio-humanistic knowledge and technologies, 6) acarology, 7) software engineering.

In 2015 the Polytechnic School was founded within the UTMN as a testing site for the reorganization of educational activity (subject of education, introduction of modern educational technologies etc.).   The staff of the School is  trained on the basis of  CDIO standards.  That  is  world-known  complex practice-oriented  approach to engineering.

The UTMN considers its role as in overcoming the fragmentation of humanitarian knowledge and achieving  the  overall  level  of  personal  culture.  The  socio-humanistic module will move fr om the transfer of traditions  to  fostering  of  a  person  able  to  make  a  choice,  meet transformations  and  be ready for the uncertainty.  The  University  will  provide competencies that will help students to reflect upon personal and other people’s behavior.
