Overview

ITMO University is a national research university founded in 1900. The main campus is located in the heart of St. Petersburg, steps away from the Peter and Paul Fortress. ITMO University is one of the leading higher education institutions in Russia, providing training and research in advanced science, humanities, engineering, and technology. The main focus areas are IT, Photonics, Optics, Mechatronics, Robotics, Smart Technologies, Art & Science, and Urban Studies. The University provides undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate (PhD) programs.

Over the past few years, ITMO University has developed from a specialized technical institute into a trailblazer shaping the national education and research policy in Russia. We know that persistence and vision pay off.

Our new approach to learning, ITMO Code, programs the University of the Future, focuses on the individual and provides a range of opportunities for holistic, multi-faceted development.

ITMO Code builds on the values of respect for the individual, integrity, academic freedom, openness, and love. It blends fundamental and unique competencies and also recognizes the importance of professional and soft skills, which is a completely new area for Russian universities. Starting in the 2018-2019 academic year, soft skills are part of the core curriculum at ITMO.

Our biggest and boldest project right now is ITMO.HIGHPARK, a $650 million development that will be the University’s new campus and a major cluster for education, research and innovative manufacturing in St. Petersburg.

ITMO University loves to break new ground and is serious about the results. Our students are the only team in the world who has won the ACM ICPC International Collegiate Programming Contest seven times.

ITMO University’s mission is to provide opportunities for the holistic development of individuals and to inspire them to tackle global challenges, as the University’s philosophy is to be “More than a University".
