NUST MISIS has entered the top-5 among Russia universities in the QS Graduate Employability Rankings, which is designed to improve the quality of analyses about the links between university practices and graduate employability. NUST MISIS is featured in the 201+ band.
NUST MISIS and the Russian Quantum Center (RQC) have announced the launch of a joint science education project — the NUST MISIS Quantum Center. The project’s blueprint calls for scientists from both NUST MISIS and the RQC to implement joint programs.
The basis for modern Smartphone displays are artificial sapphires (monocrystalline corundum), which are acquired from high-purity aluminum oxide. These artificial sapphires are the main component of light emitted diode (LED) and the protective glass of modern gadgets. As Russia lacks large-capacity production of this raw material, companies have to buy it abroad at a high price. But NUST MISIS has begun to develop high-purity aluminum oxide, and the patented import-substituting technology will allow the university to provide domestic producers of monocrystalline corundums with the necessary raw materials.
On November 1st, 2016, NUST MISIS and Peking University, China`s leading university, signed an agreement of cooperation in the fields of science and education. The parties agreed to implement joint breakthrough projects and an exchange of students.
For the first time, NUST MISIS has entered the U.S. News Best Global Universities-2017 Rankings, taking 283rd place for the subject of Materials Science. Among Russian universities, NUST MISIS ranks 2nd, only behind Lomonosov Moscow State University. Only eight Russian universities appeared in the U.S. News Best Global Universities — 2017 Rankings for the subject.
On October 26th, 2016, the Moscow international forum of innovative development, coined “Open innovations”, was opened. The forum is devoted to new technologies and the prospect of international cooperation in the field of innovations.
United Metallurgical Company (OMK) is one of the leading integrated steel producers in Russia, and one of NUST MISIS`s strategic partners. NUST MISIS, together with OMK, has implemented new education and research programs. Developed at the corporation`s request, the MBA program “Management of Industrial Enterprise” is designed for line managers to be able to initiate improvements in organizing and managing production.
Engineers from the small innovative enterprise “Medical Engineering”, which partially operates through NUST MISIS, have devised the prototype of a device which allows patients to make self intramuscular injections that adhere entirely to medical procedure. The device can be managed through a mobile device via Bluetooth, and allows a person to set the injection speed and reduce sensitivity.
NUST MISIS presented a number of technical and scientific inventions in the competitive program of the 12th International Invention Show & Technomart, INST-2016 in Taipei, Taiwan. Two of those developments earned awards, including the event’s gold and silver medals.
A group of NUST MISIS engineers has started the design of the decay vessel’s camera, the most massive part of the SHiP`s (Search for Hidden Particles) new experimental apparatus at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research (Geneva, Switzerland). The aim of the new experiment is to find explanations for phenomena that do not adhere to or cannot be described by the Standard Model of particle physics, namely, the existence of dark matter and the absence of antimatter in the Universe.
Representatives from 18 Latin American countries and Spain visited NUST MISIS during their short-term study tours in Russia as part of the “New Generation” program launched by Rossotrudnichestvo.
On October 10th, 2016, Pierre Helg, the Swiss Ambassador to the Russian Federation, visited NUST MISIS. During the meeting the university`s management and Mr. Helg discussed ways of cooperation in the fields of science and education.
A science team from the Center of Composite Materials at NUST MISIS, led by research assistant Fedor Senatov, have developed a new type of polymeric bone implants with shape memory that can be used without fittings and blocking devices during surgery. One of the new implant`s characteristics is increased implant survival rate in body tissues, as well as the ability to organically degrade, and thus subsequently be replaced by natural bone tissues.
