This two-year Master’s program taught in English provides rigorous training for high-quality researchers and inventors of new materials and technologies, who specialize in the field of mechanical engineering, aerospace industry, non-ferrous physical metallurgy. Wide application of modern educational equipment and techniques (training simulators, special software etc.) will be used during education.

Research work under supervision of senior staff includes theoretical and experimental studies, publications in scientific journal, presentations at conferences for young scientists and at special seminars. Main directions of research work are: advanced aluminum alloys, superplasticity of metallic materials, modeling and simulation in physical metallurgy, new non-ferrous metal matrix composites, biocompatible materials and shape memory alloys, elastic and anelastic behavior of metallic materials.

The scientific work provides student the following skills: to implement innovational techniques of necessary alloys properties achievement, to model and analyze structure and properties formation of the metallic details during production and application, to operate with modern equipment for mechanical and physical testing of metallic materials, to prepare the specimens of commercial and new metallic materials for analysis theirs structure and properties, to analyse the experimental results using equipment software and special computer programs.

Here’s what our alumni saying:

My stay in MISIS was a really beneficial experience for me, in terms of education, and learning Russian language was a nice achievement, I really want to go back one day to Russia (for work or private life) in order to keep practicing my Russian language and improve it.

[AMME] was amazing and i’m proud to be a part of the pioneering class. To excel in this program, one must be willing to do a lot of reading, ask all the questions, sacrifice some sleep, to cut long matters short, work even harder especially when you know there is always a semester project waiting for you while your scientific research also stares at you.

I totally enjoyed my time at MISIS. University has every facility for research, study and also the environment of study is attractive and appealing to behold.

Learning Outcomes

Here are a few benefits the present program can bring. Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:

  • evelop new materials and technologies;
  • build models of structure and properties evolution during treatment of alloys and use the models for prediction and calculation of properties;
  • use multicomponent phase diagrams for optimization of alloy composition and heat treatment;
  • detect causes of the production defects and breaking of the metallic constructions during operation;
  • work with literature and patents for obtaining of the patentability and technical level of the product;
  • research in the field of the physical metallurgy;
  • solve the theoretical and applied problems of the physical metallurgy using system approach;
  • choose methods and tests for estimation of alloys physical, mechanical, operational properties and structure;
  • use data bases, computer programs, and CAD/CAM software for the materials production problems solving;
  • create technical documentation, scientific reports concluding the results of the investigation.
