Education at the College of Basic Professional Studies

Teachers of the College combine traditional teaching methods with modern educational technologies, helping students master complex subjects. Training in natural sciences is conducted in classrooms and laboratories with modern high-tech equipment and leading scientists and industry experts conducting classes. We regularly modernize training programs, update methodological materials, and optimize the theoretical and practical parts of the taught courses.

The educational activities of the Department of Foreign Languages and Communication Technologies are aimed at teaching university students foreign languages, as well as preparing bachelors and masters in the field of Linguistics. The department successfully implements educational projects with Cambridge University Press, EF English First language center, Awatera translation agency, and others.

In the era of unlimited access to diverse and unsystematized information, the broad erudition of future specialists and the possession of universal flexible skills become crucial. Teachers and staff from the departments of social sciences and technologies, foreign languages and communicative technologies, as well as the Russian Language Center, are involved in developing these competencies.

The departments’ specialists have developed adaptive learning programs for students in the modern information-educational environment, conducted testing of modern blended learning technologies that combine face-to-face and online formats, developed and implemented programs for additional professional education and qualification improvement, including for university professors and school teachers. Active work is carried out with school students within projects such as “University Environment”, “Mathematical Vertical”, “University Saturdays”, “Engineering Class in Moscow School”, “Two Days at NUST MISIS”, “Engineering School”, among others. Students are prepared to participate in international and all-Russian Olympiads and competitions.
