National University of Science and Technology MISiS


With over 80 years of experience educating in the fields of scientific research, technology, and metallurgy, The National University of Science and Technology MISiS has a proud and distinguished history. Established in 1918, the University originated as the Department of Metallurgy in the Moscow Academy of Mines, and in the following decades has undergone several transformations before achieving its current designation as a national research university.

In the 20th century, 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. Today the National University of Science and Technology MISiS is at the forefront in the development of Russia’s innovative, knowledge-based economy, supporting the nation’s ability to successfully compete with other advanced economies as well as to fully integrate into the international community.

As in the past, MISiS remains one of Russia’s leading teaching and research educational centers. It provides a first-class professional education for over 14,000 undergraduate and graduate students and offers extensive opportunities for specialized scientific research with the objective of transferring the University’s ideas, innovations, and technologies to real-life application. MISiS aims to produce and nurture pioneering processes in a variety of fields ranging from its historic expertise in Metallurgy and Materials Science to relatively new directions in Nanotechnology, Biotechnology, Information Technologies and Telecommunications, and Sustainable Development and Energy-Efficient Technologies. These technologies are essential for improving the quality of life not only in the Russian Federation but worldwide.

Following Russian Federal Policy in Engineering and Innovations, the University is working to enhance research and development projects in prioritized areas of the economy. Our goal is to create energy-efficient technologies and environmentally-friendly methods of industrial production, as well as to produce the new materials for use in these energy-efficient technologies.

MISiS supports a multi- and cross-disciplinary approach to education. Our mission emphasizes providing fundamental instruction at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels as well as creating an organic bond between education and science.

MISiS is working to develop new mutually-beneficial, collaborative relationships with international industrial and educational partners, while continuing to nurture existing ones. Our institutional vision recognizes the seeming paradox that in the world of competition it is international cooperation that has the potential of creating an environment uniquely conducive to the attainment of the University’s goals and continuing evolution.
