MIPT (Moscow Institute on Physics and Technology)

Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology is one of Russian leading universities. It is also included among the world’s leading universities in international rankings. The institute has not only rich history - the founders and professor at the institute were Nobel laureates Kapitsa, Landau and Semenov - but also a large research base.

The basis of education in the MIPT is the unique "Phystech system" formulated by Petr Kapitsa:

•  Selecting the best prospective students;

•  Participating in teaching leading scientists;

•  Individual approach to some students for developing their creative talents;

•  Atmosphere of technological research and constructive creativity with the use of the potential of the best laboratories of the country.

Nobel Prize winners Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, ABBY founder David Yang, one of the authors of the architectural principles of construction of computing systems Boris Babayan and many others are MIPT alumni.

MIPT offers a multitude of possibilities to study the world for anyone who is interested. This may mean studying theoretical physics or searching for a means to fight human ageing. Traditionally, MIPT has always provided very strong training in physics and mathematics, though information science was recently added along with biology and chemistry as well.

Key facts:

Founded in 1946

10 Nobel Prize winners among professors and alumni

Over 6,500 students

Over 2,000 faculty members

Over 700 international students from 46 countries
