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 79 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.
Most of our professors are MIPT alumni, and they are genuinely interested in developing student skills. They provide high-quality instruction for all students and focus on talent development. Ten Nobel laureates among our alumni and professors personify the Institute’s achievement. At MIPT, you get to be part of an amazing student and alumni community — and take part in annual 24-hour soccer matches alongside professors and famous graduates.
MIPT integrates the efforts of students, professors, and alumni into a unique ecosystem focused on developing student soft skills. Our alumni are founders and CEOs of leading Russian and foreign IT and tech companies across the world, which are the Institute’s partners.
