Quantum physics has come a long way since its' formation as a scientific discipline: from complete rejection in the scientific community to super popularization by the mass media. However, now it is impossible to imagine modern science without knowledge of quantum mechanics and field theory. Nuclear and astrophysics have got into the spotlight with amazing discoveries over the past decades that have taken the development of energy, electronics, digital economy, robotics, and many other cutting-edge areas to a whole new level.A large number of innovative research, including mega-science experiments, is based on recently discovered physics principles. Russian universities are actively involved in the global scientific effort and offer progressive educational programmes in the field of new generation science.
NRNU MEPhI is one of the most prolific Russian universities in terms of the development and implementation of science education programmes of various levels. So not only graduates, but the university students as well are involved in the most ambitious international research, such as CMS experiments at the Large Hadron Collider, CERN (Switzerland), BNL (USA), NICA (Russia) and FAIR (Germany) projects. Including the Gran Sasso National Laboratory (Italy) that recently recorded a possible dark matter signal.
To start your research activities at MEPhI apply to undergraduate programmes such as Quantum Computing Systems and Data Processing, Advanced Semiconductor Lasers and Technologies or Nuclear and Particle Physics. You can continue your studies with master's programmes: Quantum metrology, Particle physics of high and ultrahigh energies, Physics of elementary particles and cosmology, Experimental methods of nuclear physics and physics of elementary particles, etc.
Another university that holds a leading position in training modern scientists is NUST MISIS. The university has been cooperating with European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) for many years, along with INFN, University Federico II of Naples, University of Zurich and Imperial College of London.
NUST MISIS offers applicants many exciting scientific specializations: bachelor's in Quantum Technologies and Condensed Matter Physics, as well as English-taught master's and postgraduate programmes in Quantum Physics for Modern Materials Engineering and Physics of Condensed Matter and Quantum Technologies.
Novosibirsk State University, in turn, has long been an integral part of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Many NSU graduates continue their careers in various research institutes of the Novosibirsk Academgorodok and as well as some of the most prominent international universities and research institutions. You can start your path to discoveries with mastering the fundamental NSU Physics undergraduate programme and continue your studies to master's degree. For future scientists, the university offers several interesting postgraduate specializations, including the English-taught programme in Elementary Particle Physics.
In September 2020, the Quantum structures for post-silicon electronics project, by the Research Institute of Semiconductor Physics of the SB RAS with the participation of NSU graduates, have won the competition of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation in priority areas of the country's scientific and technological advancement. Now a team of Novosibirsk scientists is embarking on extensive research in the physics of quantum effects as a foundation for an element base of the future computing technology.
The Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, one of the most popular Russian universities, has been training highly qualified specialists in physics, mathematics and related disciplines for decades now. After studying the basics and completing your bachelor's degree, you can choose such master's programmes as Quantum Optics and Laser Physics, Quantum Radio Physics, Quantum Electronics and Quantum Optical Systems, Space Physics, etc.
Tomsk Polytechnic University also has a solid scientific and educational base in the field of Nuclear Physics and Technology. Young scientists who graduated from TPU are in demand all over the world, including The High Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK) in Japan.
Many classical universities of the Russian Federation can offer you programmes in the field of Physics and Astronomy, which will enable you to become a world-class researcher. Just register on our website and send an application to the university you like right now!
