The National University of Science and Technology MISiS

Status of educational institutions:State

The National University of Science and Technology MISiS has a proud and distinguished history, having celebrated its 80th anniversary in June 2010. The National University of Science and Technology MISiS has a proud and distinguished history, having celebrated its 80th anniversary in June 2010.  It originated as the Department of Metallurgy in the Moscow Academy of Mines, which the Soviet government established in 1918, and in the following decades it went through several transformations before achieving its current designation. 

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-Effective Technologies.  These technologies are essential for improving the quality of life not only in the Russian Federation but in all countries. Following Russian Federal Policy in Engineering and Innovations, the University is working to develop research and development projects in prioritized areas of the economy, as identified by the Presidential Administration. MISiS’s goal is to create energy-effective technologies and environmentally-friendly methods of industrial production, as well as to produce new materials for use in energy-effective 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 relations with international industrial and educational partners, while continuing to nurture those already existing. 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 continued evolution.

·         MISiS’ mission is to serve the nation, the needs of society by providing a high quality education in Materials Science, Metallurgy and New Materials, Ecology, Economics, Industrial Management and other fields prioritized by the Russian Government;
·         MISiS’ mission is to encourage students and young scientists in their pursuit of education, various research activities, and attainment of scientific and academic goals;

·         MISiS’ mission is to become an internationally recognized institution of higher education by closely cooperating with leading international universities and companies.

The University seeks to attain the goals set in the Program of Creation and Development of the University of Science and Technology MISiS 2009-2017  signed and approved by the Russian Government.  We believe that Russia can shift to the new, contemporary innovative economy by enhancing development of new technologies, encouraging technology transfer, and technology commercialization.
