Περιγραφή Προγράμματος

Master of Science in Applied Mathematics and Physics 

The program aimed at giving researchers a grounding in mathematics and deep knowledge of mathematical physics, as well as gives the chance to pursue in-depth study of the fundamental models of modern theoretical physics. We put emphasis on students' independent scientific study that encourages their rapid fundamental scientific (and thus career) growth. 

This program gives you ability to:

  • Choose your own educational path and study tailored, individual courses depending on the specific area of your scientific study
  • Participate in research projects independently and alongside eminent specialists, teachers, and foreign colleagues
  • Gain the skills of a modern researcher and meet the highest professional requirements of leading Russian and international research and educational centers
  • Apply the culture of scientific discussion and ability of carrying scientific research to function in scientific research community or multidisciplinary team
  • Continue education and research within the PhD program at Skoltech and leading scientific centers in Russia and abroad

Our graduates shape their own futures by choosing from variety of career opportunities in industry, science and business

  • Science
    Landing PhD positions and continuing research at leading Russian and international research entities
  • Industry
