National University of Science and Technology “MISIS”

The National University of Science and Technology “MISIS” originated as the Department of Metallurgy in the Moscow Academy of Mines that the Soviet government established in 1918 and went through several transformations before achieving the current designation.

The National University of Science and Technology “MISiS” originated as the Department of Metallurgy in the Moscow Academy of Mines that the Soviet government established in 1918 and went through several transformations before achieving the current designation. Just as the Moscow Academy of Mines and then the Moscow Steel Institute (founded in 1930) each played a prominent role in the industrialization of Soviet Russia, the Russian Federation expects the National University of Science and Technology to help lead in the development of an innovative, knowledge based economy capable of successfully competing with other advanced economies on the world stage as well as fully integrating into the international community.

 

At present the National University of Science and Technology “MISiS” consists of a main campus in central Moscow that contains 7 colleges, 57 academic departments, and 32 research laboratories and learning/research centers and also has 4 branches in various regions of Russia with a total of almost 16,000 undergraduate and graduate students and approximately 2,000 faculty and administrative/professional staff.  The University’s mission is to provide students with an outstanding education in the Natural Sciences and Technology and to enable faculty to be models of excellence in teaching, research, and service.


The National University of Science and Technology “MISiS” is a multidisciplinary technological university that retains its historical focus on Materials Science and Metallurgy, while also concentrating on recently established areas of expertise in Information
Technologies, Nanotechnology, Environmental Science and Energy Saving Technologies, Organizational Economics and Management, and Industrial and Operational Quality Control.

The designation of national research university means that “MISiS” is charged with the task of educating new generations of engineers, scientists, and specialists in technology who will be acknowledged international leaders in their respective fields of expertise, well grounded in the finest practices and traditions of their mentors while also well prepared to advance scientific knowledge and produce cutting-edge technological innovations.


Of the approximately 12,000 students who study in the National University of Science and Technology “MISiS,” slightly more than 5, 000 are at the main campus in Moscow included more then 750 foreign students, while the remaining 7,000 are at 4 branch campuses in regional locations of Russia.  Moscow has always been the University’s base, but the outreach provided by the branch campuses is an important part of the institution’s historic mission and will remain so in the future, especially since the Russian government is determined to improve and modernize educational institutions not only in the major cities but also in the regions.

Among the approximately 2,000 personnel who work in the National University of Science and Technology “MISiS,” more than 1,000 are engaged in teaching and research, and of these almost 70% have earned advanced degrees.  With the title of national research university this percentage will increase in the coming years.

The National University of Science and Technology “MISiS” places great emphasis on international education and has well-developed partnerships with approximately 120 universities, R& D centers, and scientific/scholarly foundations.  While continuing to nourish these established relationships, the University seeks to add new partners, especially among leading American institutions of Science and Technology.

MISIS offers four English taught Master programmes. You can find a complete list and elaborate information on requirements and curricula on their website.
