Nobel Prize


MIPT is recognized as a leading research center. The education ecosystem relies on proven instruction methods and an innovative infrastructure. Students can do experiments and test their scientific hypotheses with a personal research advisor and leading experts from all over the world. The more than 80 advanced research labs at MIPT are an excellent training ground for future researchers

Our professors are focused on technological entrepreneurship and innovations as core areas of future MIPT development. In 2017, we relaunched the Phystech.Start business accelerator, which now supports student-initiated projects based on the Institute’s lab infrastructure. Dolgoprudny is the heart of MIPT development. The innovative campus infrastructure has helped 10 of our alumni and professors become Nobel Prize laureates. Ten MIPT alumni are ranked in the Russian Forbes




The Institute’s development strategy is focused on continual improvement, international projects, and a partner network. International students make up 12 percent of the overall student body at MIPT. Today students can choose to study abroad in over 50 countries. More than 100 leading companies are our partners in research projects and student internships, including IBS, Yandex, Huawei, Google, Abbyy, and Intel. Each Phystech School and lab fosters its own partner network

As far as international projects are concerned, the Phystech.International olympiad for talented students is a prime example. More than 10,000 participants from over 100 countries take part in this contest. The Russian national team took second place among 4,000 universities at the 2018 International Collegiate Programming Contest. The Institute’s campus is a frequent location for international conferences, meetings, workshops, and our students have a chance to integrate into the global scientific community

    Russia’s welcoming attitude towards foreigners convinces me that an American in Moscow on an official academic program whose only crime is “acting like an American,” not espionage, is perfectly safe. I have many mathematician friends and acquaintances who are active in the university sphere of a number of Russian big cities

    I have changed my mind about Russia. Professors are loyal and friendly. When I entered at MIPT, I felt the power of science and technology. For example, I understood the nature of the light we see every day. Here I learned a lot and established good contact with Russian classmates

    People are very friendly. Actually, before I came to Russia, they told that Russian teachers are strict and I had seen this in many universities but in MIPT I have seen something different. Teachers here are pretty respectful and they teach very well besides their perfect English.
