The Master in Innovative Software Systems: Design, Development & Applications program offers systematic mathematical, programming, and economic training. After completing the program, our highly qualified Master's graduates will have acquired the skills to succeed at research, analytics or practical implementation, development and research of modern software, mathematical methods and models of objects, systems, processes, and technologies for computer vision applications in science, technology, medicine, and other industries (such as robotics, mobile systems in aeronautics, astronautics, for submarine installations, transport, etc.).
Among the competitive advantages of this program is the opportunity to take a step forward and bridge active radar data with passive computer vision and the appropriate methods of object identification based on sparse and uncertain information, drawing on the latest scientific achievements of the faculty staff, the Institute for Systems Analysis of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and Cognitive Technologies. In addition to the classical image processing, optimization, pattern recognition methods, and information technology, this program unveils modern approaches to artificial intelligence and most recent scientific advances in cognitive technologies, significantly enhancing the capabilities of such systems.
The curriculum is presented by leading experts of the Institute for Systems Analysis of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Cognitive Technologies and Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. All instructors have high scientific potential and broad practical experience in the area.
The staff of the Engineering Cybernetics Department provides a high-level instruction in mathematics and advanced computer training for Masters. Students from this department have repeatedly won IT competitions, national and international academic competitions in programming, and made the finals at the International Collegiate Programming Contest.
Admission to International Master’s Programs at MISiS is open to both Russian and international students. Given that all classes will be conducted in English, we recommend that non-native speakers of English achieve a TOEFL score of at least 525 (paper-based) or 200 (computer-based) prior to admission. To apply for a two-year Master’s program at MISiS, the applicant must hold a Bachelor’s degree in a related field. Upon the completion of the program of study at MISiS, the applicant will receive a Russian State diploma and a European Diploma Supplement.
The deadline to submit the application for Fall 2019 is August 10, 2019, however, we encourage international students to apply by July 20, 2019.
