Academic Year 2015-2016

Skoltech uses online platforms to support its teaching and learning activities. Information about courses is uploaded for the students on the special Student Information System, which is used for course registration.

Detailed information on each course (including the syllabus, announcements, home assignments, lecture notes and presentation slides) is posted on individual project sites dedicated to each particular course. As part of our collaboration with MIT, Skoltech uses online platform Stellar to support its educational activities.

Divided by academic terms below, you can find brief course descriptions of the courses to be offered at Skoltech during academic year 2015-2016
