Phystech Schools

The main goal of Phystech School of Radio Engineering and Computer Technology is preparation of experts with engineering mindset, capable of formulating and solving major technical and technological problems.

The School was established based on the Department of Radio Engineering and Cybernetics, that majors in application areas of radio engineering, telecommunication and microprocessor technology. As we believe that intellectual components must be integrated into all those areas, intellectualisation is the very trend, that connects them all. One of the specializations that is currently being developed intensively is robotics, and we are planning to make it one of our majors.

Considering the relevance of education of the highest importance, the School collaborates with the leading industry corporations, such as Intel, Honeywell, Almaz-Antey, Acronis, Parallels, Netcracker (NEC) and others, and is planning to cooperate with Kaspersky Lab. By carefully studying the feedback about the demands of industry and by integrating the students into the relevant educational process, we prepare the experts who are increasingly in high demand on the market.

Phystech School of Biological and Medical Physics is preparing scientists who are able to combine knowledge of physics, mathematics, chemistry, biology and computer science. Students study math and physics inorder to use them in biological research. In the 4th year students choose a basic department from a wide range of specializations: bioinformatics, biophysics, biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology. Then students under the guidance of active scientists take their first steps in scientific life. FBMF students will have many opportunities for self-development: summer internships and schools, including abroad, excursions to laboratories and summer practices. In addition to scientific activities, students show their creative abilities - for the last three years, FBMF has been the most creative faculty of MIPT.

The Phystech School of Aerospace Technology aims to prepare top-notch engineers for the aerospace industry. It combines the Department of Aerophysics and Space Research and the Department of Aeromechanics and Flight Engineering.

The Department of Aerophysics and Space Research offers undergraduate and graduate programs in space research, natural sciences, and mathematical modeling and system analysis. The Space Research Program includes courses in the development of space surveillance systems; communication, control, and navigation; and space vehicle design and construction. The Natural Sciences Program offers several engineering specializations: development of oil and gas exploration methods; forecasting, mitigation, and elimination of natural and human-caused disasters; and fundamental research and mathematical modeling in the fields of ocean and atmospheric sciences. Mathematical Modeling and System Analysis is a program with a focus on mathematical modeling, analysis, and optimization of complex technical, physical, industrial, economic, physiological, and other systems. Accordingly, students interested in space research, natural sciences, or mathematical modeling are welcome to choose the specialization that is right for them.

The Department of Aeromechanics and Flight Engineering carries out scientific research for major Russian companies, including Zhukovsky Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute, Baranov Central Institute of Aviation Motors, Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company, and others. This makes for a wide range of research areas, namely, theoretical aero- and hydrodynamics, mathematical simulation of gas and liquid flows (modeling of airflows around aircraft, complex atmospheric currents, wind tunnels, etc.), applied mechanics (computer simulation and experimental research into the strength of materials, including composites), software development and visualization tools (flight tracking, radar systems, etc.), simulation of the processes occurring in aircraft and rocket engines, research and development of unmanned aerial vehicles and drones.

Phystech School of Electronics, Photonics and Molecular Physics prepares high qualified experts in the fields of electronics, photonics, molecular and chemical physics. The development of the education and research is oriented on the grand challenges, including: productivity growth and cost reduction of electronic and photonic hardware, new materials accelerating the technique development and improving of life quality, synergies of combining fundamental and engineering education.

The research activity of the Phystech School is specialized in the three main areas. The first specialization is nanoelectronics and computing systems: the development of an elemental base for neuromorphic and quantum computations, the development of calculation methods, non-volatile memory and high density information development. The second specialization is optoelectronics and laser systems: fiber optic lasers and semiconductor laser systems; the development of energy-saving sources of EM radiation, computer vision systems and information displaying, such as OLED/OLET display technologies, micro- and nanoscale 3D printing technologies, microsensorics and others. The third one is the development of new functional nanomaterials and technologies for applications in alternative and renewable energy production, photonics, electronics, medicine and other areas, focusing on carbon materials synthesis.

The School currently collaborates with the leading research institutions of Russian Academy of Sciences, as well as with leading industrial holdings and businesses specializing in nanoelectronics, optoelectronics and laser technologies (for example, Shvabe holding, IPG Photonics, RTI Group). We also have international collaborations in areas of nanotechnologies and nanoelectronics with the Research Center in Julich, Technical University in Dresden, Germany, and École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland.

The Phystech School of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science has been established to accumulate and develop the competences currently called for in mathematics and computer science, as well as in their applications. It provides programs that are unmatched in Russia in the areas of advanced combinatorics and network applications, machine learning, robotics, data analysis and predictive modeling, experimental economics, applied computational geophysics, and many more.

Landau Phystech School of Physics and Research was founded in 2016 on the basis of the Faculty of General and Applied Physics and the Faculty of Problems of Physics and Energy. We continue the traditions of the these faculties and provide a wide range of educational directions and scientific tasks. Our students and graduates explore physical patterns at the forefront of modern science in the face of fierce competition and international integration.

The research work of students and postgraduates under the guidance of leading professors is the main criteria for the professional success of the entire cycle of training specialists who are in demand in advanced research centers both in Russia and abroad.

The Phystech School has scientific and methodological laboratories, a Center for Research on Molecular Mechanisms of Aging and Age-related Diseases, and also cooperates with the Center for Photonics and Two-dimensional Materials at MIPT. students and postgraduatesconduct research work under the guidance of prominent MIPT scientists in modern laboratories, along with a traditionally wide front of research work in advanced research centers - the basic organizations of the Landau Phystech School of Physics and Research.
