Program Description

Master of Science in Mathematical and Theoretical Physics

The Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech)

The program aimed at giving researchers a grounding in mathematics and deep knowledge of mathematical physics, as well as gives the chance to pursue in-depth study of the fundamental models of modern theoretical physics. We put emphasis on students' independent scientific study that encourages their rapid fundamental scientific (and thus career) growth.

  • Modes and duration: 2 years (full-time)
  • Application deadline: July 16, 2018
  • Tuition fees: no tuition fee for the applicants who pass the selection process
  • Language: English
  • Location: Moscow, Russia

This program gives you the ability to:

  • Choose your own educational path and study tailored, individual courses depending on the specific area of your scientific study
  • Participate in research projects independently and alongside eminent specialists, teachers, and foreign colleagues
  • Gain the skills of a modern researcher and meet the highest professional requirements of leading Russian and international research and educational centers
  • Apply the culture of scientific discussion and ability to carry scientific research to function in scientific research community or multidisciplinary team
  • Continue education and research within the Ph.D. program at Skoltech and leading scientific centers in Russia and abroad

Program Structure:

The 2-year (120 ECTS-credits) program comprises compulsory and recommended elective courses on the most important topics, wide set of elective courses (depending on research and professional needs of the student), entrepreneurship and innovation component, research activity and 8 weeks of industrial immersion.

Entry requirements:

  • Education: Relevant bachelor's degree, or its equivalent in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, and Physics.
  • English language requirements: If your education has not been conducted in the English language, you will be expected to demonstrate evidence of an adequate level of English proficiency
  • Knowledge and skills (Track A): Basics of combinatorics, Elements of group theory, Linear algebra, Topology, Limits of sequences and functions, Derivatives and differentials, Geometry: affine and projective spaces, maps, second-order curves (conics), Complex analysis, Ordinary differential equations, Classical mechanics, Classical electrodynamics.
  • Knowledge and skills (Track B): Quantum mechanics (in the scope of the Landau-Lifshitz course) and Mathematics (Calculus, Linear algebra, basic Complex analysis, Differential equations). The entrance exam in Quantum mechanics is equivalent in complexity to the Landau theoretical minimum.

Applications are accepted until July 16, 2018, inclusive.
