Despite the fact that nowadays for modernization, advanced development of high-tech, innovative economy, Russia, first of all, needs engineers, a considerable number of applicants for some reason have no particular desire to enter the engineering field and direction in universities. Meanwhile government is not simply encouraging young people to study on technical specialties, but also, in spite of the decrease in the total number of high school graduates, keeps, and even increases the number of budget places in universities.

As it is known, in 2011, Russian universities have switched to a level system of higher education. Its levels are Bachelor's and Master's studies. At the same time, not all universities, even with state accreditation, will be able to work at the graduate level in the future. Mandatory condition, for having higher levels of training than bachelor's and specialty studies – is implementation of not only educational activities at the current level, but also conduction of basic and applied researches, creation of highly intelligent scientific and technological products - scientific discoveries, inventions, new technologies. Pacific National University fully complies with these requirements. Our professors alongside with training activities are actively engaged in research and innovative work, having formed over 20 academic schools, which are recognized in Russia and abroad.
One of the most important components of high-quality education – is the opportunity for self-realization and practice that our school gives to all students.
