Master’s Program

Bridging Engineering Science and Digital Technologies

The Master’s program in Advanced Manufacturing Technologies is aimed at providing students with the state-of-the-art educational experience in Engineering Science and Digital Technologies. Our students have a unique opportunity to learn the cutting edge manufacturing technologies together with the advanced science and digital design tools that underly those technologies. The program is structured so as to teach essential scientific and engineering disciplines in the first year and to engage in practical project-based studies and research in the second year. Upon a successful thesis defense, students are awarded the degree of “Master of Science in Information Systems and Technologies”.

All students receive an internationally competitive stipend and other benefits.

Entry requirements:

  • Bachelor’s degree, or its equivalent in Physics, Mechanics, Material Science, Engineering, or Applied Mathematics
  • High level of English proficiency
  • Passing an online test on university mathematics and general physics (see a sample test at: http://msc.skoltech.ru/exams)
