Skoltech becomes partner in launching Microelectronics and Photonics track at Moscow Technical School

Skoltech and other top universities and companies in Moscow signed an agreement with the Government of Moscow to create a new educational track, Microelectronics and Photonics, at the Moscow Technical School.

A Moscow government project launched in 2021, the Moscow Technical School trains engineers in innovative technologies that help optimize production processes and build up the city’s industrial potential. The project aims to meet Moscow’s needs for top-notch engineers.

“Currently, Moscow has 48 microelectronics companies. The growing demand for their products and the increase in production capacity call for expanding their human resources. Last year, we established the Moscow Technical School to meet the ever-growing need for highly skilled employees. This week we launched a new educational track — Microelectronics and Photonics — where engineers will gain new knowledge and skills in the development, production, and use of advanced electronic technologies and tools, and related research,” Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Economic Policy and Property and Land Relations Vladimir Efimov said.

“We now have a big project in microelectronics and photonics, areas that are highly relevant and promising with regard to the coming years. The Moscow Technical School consolidates the best practices of the country’s leading research centers and universities to train engineers in both scientific research and real-life applications,” the head of the Department of Investment and Industrial Policy of Moscow, Vladislav Ovchinsky, noted.

Skoltech Senior Vice President for Development Alexander Safonov said that his institute and the Government of Moscow are pursuing several important projects to expand the use of photonics. However, this requires highly qualified experts who, thanks to the Moscow Technical School, will soon join Moscow companies, Safonov added.

Besides Skoltech, serving as a partner for development, the agreement was signed by several partners for education, among them MISIS, Bauman MSTU, MEPhI, MSU, MIPT, and Moscow Technical University of Communications and Informatics.
