The Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology is a leading Russian university providing a strong theoretical background and opportunities for research in diverse scientific areas for the most talented students. The strong focus on fundamental sciences at MIPT is augmented by a number of collaborations with top-notch research institutions. This enables students to become successful and highly demanded experts in their areas of research. MIPT offers intense training in natural sciences, mathematics, general and applied physics, engineering, information technology, and life sciences.
All undergraduate students of MIPT become members of academic communities called Phystech Schools, each of which usually combines two departments of similar specializations. The departments are responsible for teaching the core subjects — mathematics, physics, and chemistry or informatics, depending on the specialization — while the schools provide students with research opportunities. Phystech Schools collaborate with Russia’s leading industrial and IT companies, the research institutes of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and develop on-campus laboratories and research facilities, striving to provide students with the most relevant, in-demand, and high-quality education.
