NUST MISIS Launches First English Language Pre-Master`s Degree Courses on edX

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.

NUST MISIS Scientists Develop “Eternal” Accelerator on the Basis of Nanomaterials

A group of NUST MISIS scientists led by Professor Alexander Mukasyan has produced a unique accelerator by developing self-propagating high-temperature synthesis (SHS). The accelerator doesn’t degrade and doesn’t get polluted during the working process, and this is the reason why it operates ten times longer than ordinary accelerators. It has been working intensively for several years, hence why it is jokingly called “eternal”. Accelerators are used to obtain nanomaterials, as well as for the after combustion process in vehicles. Additionally, they reduce harmful emissions into the atmosphere.
