The National University of Science and Technology MISIS (NUST MISIS) invites you to participate in our fun and educational short-term program during the summer, the most wonderful time to visit Moscow and discover Russian culture and history.

The modern campus of NUST MISIS is located close to the city center, only 10 minutes from the Moscow Kremlin. Summer school participants are offered to stay at a comfortable residence hall, located 20 minutes from the main campus.

To help students socialize and discover the charms of our capital, we offer a social events program which includes a city tour, restaurants with national cuisine, outdoor activities, etc. In addition, we have prepared a special cultural program for more demanding adventurers to get a taste of our traditions and cultural heritage by visiting interesting sights in Moscow and outside.

Aim:

The aim of the summer school is to provide students with an introduction to the use of thermodynamic, kinetic and ab initio modelling to solve real problems in multicomponent chemical systems (such as: materials, development, casting and solidification, head treatment, extraction, refining, welding, brazing and soldering) and to illustrate just how easy thermodynamics can be applied in industry.
