Faculty of Physics at Lomonosov Moscow State University is the best education in Physics in Russia and the world-class scientific research. The faculty hosts 40 chairs that are combined in 8 divisions (experimental and theoretical physics, applied mathematics, solid state physics, radiophysics, nuclear physics, geophysics, astronomy, and complimentary education) and which offer world-class fundamental education and scientific research in almost all fields of modern experimental and theoretical physics from elementary particles and nanophysics to life sciences, geophysics, and space research. Plus to that, the faculty offers courses on engineering physics and management of research and high technologies.
Scientific research is conducted both at the Faculty of Physics and at the various research Institutes of Lomonosov Moscow State University and the Russian Academy of Sciences, as well as in close collaboration with many key universities in Russia and in Europe, USA, Asia, and Australia.
Since 1933, over 25000 specialists in Physics received their diploma with the Faculty of Physics and over 4000 and 500 our graduates were awarded PhD and Doctor of Sciences by the Faculty, respectively. Every third member of the Russian Academy of Sciences in the field of Physics, Geophysics, and astronomy is our graduate; 8 our graduates and/or professors were awarded Nobel prizes; 38 our professors were awarded Lenin prize and over 170 – State award for scientific achievements.
Our graduates demonstrate very good skills in Physics, show wide range of interests in Science and are highly valued both in Russia and abroad, which allow them easily find a job either in Science or in any other area of human activities that fit their wishes and expectations. This is why our graduates are taking top positions not only in Science, but in management, consulting, banking, industry, etc.
