Skoltech is an international graduate research-focused university that was founded by the group of world-renowned scientists in 2011. Skoltech's curriculum focuses on technology and innovation, offering Master's programs in 11 technological disciplines. Students receive rigorous theoretical and practical training, design their own research projects, participate in internships and gain entrepreneurial skills in English. The faculty is comprised of current researchers with international accreditation and achievements.
All Master’s students are required to participate in an industrial immersion project during the summer term of the first study year; the aim is to familiarize Skoltech students with the demands of Russian industry and to prepare graduates for job placement.
Skoltech student group (3-10 students) is like a small engineering consulting company within an organization.
Projects focus on short-term development, manufacturing or operations challenges rather than long-term research problems.
Students take the lead in defining the tasks in detail and organize their work, in collaboration with the company supervisor.
Duration – 8 weeks (full-time), 12 ECTS credits, graded as Pass/Fail. Credits awarded are Sector credits in the degree requirements.
The final results of Industrial Immersion projects should be presented during the poster session on Skoltech Industry Day.
