In January 2015 Skoltech launched a new MSc program in Product Design and Advanced Manufacturing, in collaboration with MIT.
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 Development, Manufacturing Processes, Materials Selection for Design, Composite Materials, PLM and a Design and Manufacturing Sector course, which provides a combined technological and business perspective of the sector. Like all other Master programs at Skoltech, an Innovation Workshop and other courses in innovation such as Intellectual Property and Ideas to Impact complement the other content of the program.
Skoltech has developed this new M.Sc. program focused on raising industrial productivity and manufacturing capability, developing a vibrant “Made in Russia” ecosystem.
