NUST MISIS launched two online courses on edX — one of the world`s leading educational online platforms, created on the initiative of MIT and Harvard. The courses, on materials science and mathematics, have been specially designed for edX by leading scientists working at NUST MISIS. Users of the global platform will not only have a unique opportunity to take the course, but also to take an exam and receive a certificate, which will be considered during admission to NUST MISIS master`s degree program.

Alexander Nikitin, a graduate student in the NUST MISIS master`s degree program “Materials and Technologies of Digital Production” has created a prototype for a unique motorcycle headlight, which is able to illuminate roads in darkness with a light beam angle of 120 degrees. The headlight is equipped with electronics that allows the rider to change the shape of the light beam depending on the inclination of the motorcycle, thereby reducing the risk of accidents in the dark.
