Prospective international students can apply for Condensed Matter Physics and Quantum Technologies or Materials Science of Non-Ferrous Metals and Alloys. Both programmes aim to prepare researchers and teachers. The students who choose physical sciences will focus on solid state physics, experimental methods to study the chemical composition of solids, condensed state physics, quantum mechanics etc. The materials science programme trains non-ferrous metals specialists. They will do materials engineering, applied and computational thermodynamics, the solution of materials science problems and other subjects. All PhD students have mandatory teaching practice. The students who successfully complete the PhD programmes are awarded a diploma in Russian and a certificate of training translated into English. Those who defend their PhD thesis get an academic title diploma in Russian and English (stating that Candidateof Sciences is a PhD equivalent).

PhD students can take part in a contest for research engineer job at a leading MISIS laboratory. To be admitted, prospective international students have to pass an English medium examination in the principal subject.
