    The history of the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI (Moscow Engineering Physics Institute) began with the foundation in 1942 of the Moscow Mechanical Institute of Ammunition. The leading Russian nuclear university MEPhI was later established there and top Soviet scientists, including the head of the Soviet atomic project Igor Kurchatov, played a part in its development and formation. Six Nobel Prize winners have worked at MEPhI over the course of its history – Nikolay Basov, Andrei Sakharov, Nikolay Semenov, Igor Tamm, Ilya Frank and Pavel Cherenkov.

    Today, MEPhI is one of the leading research universities of Russia, training engineers and scientists in more than 200 fields. The most promising areas of study include:

    • Nanomaterials and nanotechnologies;
    • Radiation and beam technologies;
    • Medical physics and nuclear medicine;
    • Superconductivity and controlled thermonuclear fusion;
    • Ecology and biophysics;
    • Information security.


    In addition, future managers, experts and analysts in the fields of management, engineering economics, nuclear law and international scientific and technological cooperation study at MEPhI.

    Programmes at MEPhI:

     Since 2014, the university has been implementing standards of the CDIO Initiative for modernising engineering training in higher education. The standards aim to improve the quality of the next generation of engineering graduates and are also used by leading world universities such as Stanford University, California State University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

        Are accredited by the FEANI (Federation of National Engineering Associations) and Agency for Accreditation of Engineering Education Programmes (ANO APIO).

        A graduate who studied under an accredited programme and has the necessary professional experience can obtain the rank (international certificate) of Euroengineer.

        Graduates of NRNU MEPhI are in demand in Russia and abroad. They work at CERN, Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), Julich Research Centre (Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH), the Institute of High Energy Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, High Energy Accelerator Research Organisation and in over 100 leading scientific centres around the world.
