MIPT's Mission

MIPT’s mission is to train leaders in science and technology, who are capable to solve key scientific and technical problems, and who will determine the success of the country and humanity in the XXI century.


The mission is based on the four basic principles of the legendary Phystech system, created by our university’s founders L. Landau, P. Kapitsa and N. Semenov over 60 years ago, which are:

  • selecting the best prospective students;
  • leading scientists participating in teaching;
  • an individual approach to some students to develop their creative talents;
  • creating an atmosphere of technological research and constructive creativity, using the potential of the best laboratories of the country.
