The two-year Master’s program Science and Materials of Solar Energy is designed to create an integral understanding of modern technologies used in solar energy research and development, industrial production of modern solar cells, panels, and systems. The main aim of the program is to prepare highly-qualified personnel capable of working in both research laboratories and the industrial sector, equipped with theoretical and practical knowledge and analytical and problem-solving skills in the field of Solar Energy.

The program provides necessary skills for development and modernization of the Renewable Energy sector by means of innovative solutions and deployment of new materials and technologies. It also prepares students for work in industrial, research and development companies, and laboratories, developing energy-efficient and environmentally friendly solutions to local and global problems. Successful completion of the course provides the student with the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge of various types and constructions of solar cells as well as production techniques and processes deployed by the micro and nano-electronics industries.

The student gains knowledge about general fundamentals of material science, physical and chemical properties of materials used in electronics industry. The student is also provided with knowledge about the wide spectrum of applications and qualities of new materials and structures designed at the nano-scale. In addition to theoretical and practical knowledge of the main discipline, the student has access to the optional independent research projects and courses, which allows widening the spectrum of professional knowledge and skills in the area of innovative technology.

These include Methods of structure research (provides understanding of how to choose the optimal method for a solution of a given research task) Fundamentals of solid state physics (describes internal processes in materials) Fundamentals of electronics (provides understanding of functions of fundamental elements of electronics systems on a micro level, circuit design, circuit characterization parameter control) Fundamentals of quantum physics.


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.

Admission Deadline

The deadline to submit the application for Fall 2018 is August 10, 2018, however, we encourage international students to apply by July 20. 2018.
