Product Design and Advanced Manufacturing

In January 2015 Skoltech launched a new MSc program in Product Design and Advanced Manufacturing, in collaboration with MIT.  This new two-year program includes a possibility to study at MIT as a part of the program.

Here at Skoltech, we are building a novel research and education environment that provides training not only in fundamental knowledge, but also in the skills necessary for this changing world, including entrepreneurship, leadership, and the ability to innovate. This new program—consisting of formal coursework plus hands-on industry experiences—prepares students to assume a role of technical leadership in the product realization industries. The comprehensive curriculum includes Product Design, Process and Assembly Physics, Factory and Supply-Chain Systems, and Operational Excellence.

Skoltech and MIT have cultivated a critical mass of Russian industries to support this new M.Sc. program focused on raising industrial productivity and manufacturing capability, developing a vibrant “Made in Russia” ecosystem.
