The new MSc program in Product Design and Advanced Manufacturing was launched in January 2015 in collaboration with MIT.  The current plan for this new two-year program includes a possibility to study at MIT as a part of the program.

This new program—consisting of formal coursework plus hands-on industry experiences—prepares students to assume a role of technical leadership in the product realization industries. The comprehensive curriculum includes Product Design, Process and Assembly Physics, Factory and Supply-Chain Systems, and Operational Excellence.

Skoltech and MIT have cultivated a critical mass of Russian industries to support this new M.Sc. program focused on raising industrial productivity and manufacturing capability, developing a vibrant “Made in Russia” ecosystem.
