Our mission

MEPhI empowers the world’s best nuclear tech experts and talented students to produce secure and stable energy, excel in creating applicable science, boost human capital and economic output in various fields, support industry and business, and be innovative and creative – as much as they want and can. Our overall mission is to energize and improve people’s lives in Russia and globally.

Educational programs
NPhE conducts scientific research, the spectrum of which extends from the fundamental problems of the structure of matter and the development of new materials to the creation of a new nuclear power platform, and prepares specialists capable of solving the global problems of modern nuclear physics and the nuclear industry.
Students are offered original educational programs reflecting the current state and trends in the development of science and technology, as well as the opportunity to participate in research in the fields of nuclear physics, elementary particles, developments of nuclear technologies and nuclear power plants. NPhE actively cooperates with leading foreign universities and international nuclear educational networks.
NPhE has the advantage of having its own unique scientific and technical base for research, as well as active participation in collaborations with leading international nuclear centers. This allowed developing new technologies for training personnel of various competences and skill levels directly in the process of conducting scientific research.
NPhE includes the leading departments of the University, which have extensive experience in conducting research and training of students and graduate students in the field of nuclear technology. Graduates of INPhE are in demand in Russian and international institutes, nuclear centers and nuclear power plants.

The department is a major university structure in the system of preparatory education. The main aim of the department is to prepare foreign students who don’t speak Russian for further studies on the Universities' degree programs of all levels. During the preparatory course the students also have an opportunity to get acquainted with Russian educational system and adapt to the living conditions.

After completing the preparatory course in OINPE MEPHI foreign citizens are able to continue studying in a Russian higher-education institutions, namely they:
  • have Russian language skills for studying and communicating in educational, professional, social and cultural areas;
  • master the system of discipline knowledge essential to continue studying in a Russian high-education institution;
  • are psychologically prepared to study in a new social and cultural environment.
Our teachers are certified by the International Education Center at Moscow State University named after M.V. Lomonosov; they have a long-term experience of working with foreign students (including work in foreign countries : Myanmar, China, Finland, Israel).

The department's teachers and staff can speak foreign languages, that allows them to communicate with the students from their first days in Russia. We apply the advanced teaching methods using the newest lexical and grammar training materials.

The accumulated pedagogical experience, scientific and methodical potential of the department's staff contributes to improvement of the system of teaching Russian as a foreign language and a number of other scientific disciplines in Russian. More information...
