TOMSK, Sep 27 - RIA Tomsk. Tomsk State University of Control Systems and Radioelectronics (TUSUR) plans in the next five years to build a Center for Microelectronic Systems, which will combine a regional design center for the design of microelectronic equipment, testing laboratory and educational center, the rector of the university Viktor Rulevsky told reporters on Friday.
According to him, in the coming years TUSUR will continue to promote and develop its main areas of activity - nano- and microelectronics, information security, work on the creation of automated complexes and systems, intelligent power electronics, develop communications and navigation.
“However, we also have an ambitious project for the coming years. There is space in the backyard of the university, where we dream of creating a Center for Microelectronic Systems. <...> It will be a unique center in Siberia. It will combine a design center, small production (of microelectronic systems), and also there will be an educational environment", - Rulevsky said at a press conference in the RIA Tomsk media center.

As the rector of TUSUR specified RIA Tomsk, the center will work in collaboration with other universities of Tomsk within the framework of the "Big University": "Large joint projects will be implemented here. We strive to ensure that each university has access to its infrastructure capabilities, plus the opportunity to receive additional educational courses".
He noted that currently an old unexploited building is located on the site of the planned center. Coordination with the Ministry of Education and Science of the necessary documents for its demolition and preparation of the site for new construction will take at least a year.
"We assume that in three or four years at best, if we have the first buildings, it will be great. But in general, I think it will take about five years", - he said, without specifying the cost of the entire project.
