PhD in Metallurgy of Non-ferrous Metals and Alloys


Program Description


The program is designed for researchers who want to pursue their education in the field of non-ferrous metallic materials science. You will be conducting your research in the field of structural and physical characteristics of metallic materials (thermodynamic, thermophysical, mechanical, electrophysical etc).

The program is launched under the major 22.06.01 “Materials Engineering” and is supervised by the head of the department of non-ferrous metallurgy, PhD Alexey Solonin. The department has created and successfully operates Russia’s first master program in the field of digital fabrication. The field of expertise of the scientist is metallurgy of non-ferrous metals, metal composite materials, problems of metallurgy modelling.

Teaching is carried out entirely in English.

The educational process involves international scientists and teachers: Doctor of Chemical Sciences, Head of the NUST MISIS Laboratory of Separation and Pre-Concentration in the Chemical Diagnostics of Functional Materials and Environmental Objects Petr Fedotov; Ph.D., Head of the Laboratory of Biomedical Nanomaterials Maxim Abakumov; Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Head of the NUST MISIS Laboratory of Physical Methods, Acousto-Optic and Laser Apparatus for Cancer Diagnostics and Therapy Efim Khazanov.

In addition, as part of academic mobility programs, graduate students will be able to go on internships at one of the partner universities, including the University of Johannesburg, University of Rome Tor Vergata and Copenhagen University.

Every international postgraduate student admitted to NUST MISIS will be given the opportunity to participate in a competition for a researcher-engineer position at one of the University`s leading laboratories. The competition’s winners will be able to conduct research, lead the research work of international master`s degree students, and prepare methodological materials. Having a scientific article published in at least a second quartile journal is a mandatory requirement.
