On March 21st, 2018, the fifth award ceremony for IELTS certificates was held following the results of Touchstone@MISIS, an English language learning program. During the program, the number of students with an advanced level of English (5.5 points or higher) increased from 150 to almost 400.
NUST MISIS has entered the TOP-10 of the first ranking of higher education institutions focused on practical education. The study was prepared by the educational platform Changellenge, which is based on the results of 10 case-championships held in 2017, which attracted 15,000 students from more than 150 Russian and international universities.
NUST MISIS Scientists Develop a Material which will Allow Scanning Probe Microscopes to do the Impossible
If scientists want to achieve stable and more qualitative results, they have to change the core of the scanning probe microscope — a piezoelectric plate. Additionally, the new material — biblast-furnace lithium niobate — allows scientists to study the surface at previously unattainable temperatures.
In search of the perfect metallic glass—amorphous metal—scientists from NUST MISIS and Tohoku University (Japan) came together to revolutionize the production of nanometals and to improve several related technologies. The research results conducted by the international team of scientists led by Professor Dmitri Luzgin are published in Intermetallics.
NUST MISIS has entered the TOP-30 of the QS World University Rankings by Subject in “Engineering-Mineral & Mining”, rising one spot from 2017. The University has also strengthened its positions in the three following subjects: “Materials Science”, “Physics & Astronomy”, and “Engineering-Mechanical”, rising by a staggering 100 spots in all 3 subjects.
NUST MISIS scientists have synthesized nanohybrids with unique properties.
The number of state-funded spots in NUST MISIS’s Communications and International Public Relations program, which is taught entirely in English, has been doubled. Earlier in the
A group of NUST MISIS’s young scientists, for the very first time in Russia, has presented a new therapeutic material based on nanofibers made of polycaprolactone modified with a thin-film antibacterial composition and plasma components of human blood. Biodegradable bandages made from these fibers will accelerate the growth of tissue cells twice as quickly, contributing to the normal regeneration of damaged tissues, as well as preventing the formation of scars in cases of severe burns.
NUST MISIS scientists jointly with an international group of scientists have managed to develop a composite material that has the best piezoelectric properties today. The research results were published in Scientific Reports journal.
Representatives of 15 foreign universities visited NUST MISIS as part of the International Scientific Symposium “Miner`s Week-2018”. Agreements on international cooperation in the field of education and science were reached as a result of the round table discussion “The internationalization of education in the mining field”.
Two groups of NUST MISIS’s young scientists have won Moscow Government Awards for 2017.
Naranzhargal Munkhzhargal, a 4th year NUST MISIS student from Mongolia, has taken 2nd place in an All-Russian Olympiad for Russian language held among international students from Russian universities. The Association of International Students (AIS) together with the Plekhanov Russian University of Economics hosted the Olympiad.
On January 30th, 2018, the opening ceremony of the renovated Geological Museum named after V.V. Ershov was held at NUST MISIS as part of “Miner`s Week”, the world’s largest international industry event.
