The school’s training program features lectures, seminars, an intensive practical course, and a case competition. The participants are guided by mentors and begin their training by studying cases. You can choose between four areas: 
  • Geophysics. 
  • Alternative energy. 
  • Applied mechanics

During the school, the students can take a guided tour to the ship repair facility Zvezdochka, where nuclear submarines and ice-resistant stationary drilling platforms are serviced. Other tour options are to Severalmaz, a diamond mining company, or to the White Sea or the Northern Dvina river mouth aboard a vessel of Russia’s federal meteorology service. Some tours are only available for Russian citizens. 

The Maliye Korely open-air museum of wooden architecture will provide its recreation facilities, about 20 kilometers outside Arkhangelsk, for housing the summer school.
