Department for General and Applied Physics, Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology

Chair for "Problems in theoretical physics"

based at Landau Institute for theoretical physics


How to join

A student can join the chair after the 3rd semester during the chair assignment at the Department of general and applied physics of MIPT. We take into account the marks got by the student for the courses that our chair organizes during the 2nd and 3rd semesters in the framework of the project activity. Passed exams from the Landau theoretical-minimum series on Mathematics-I and Mechanics guarantee admission. One passed theoretical-minimum exam is an essential advantage.

Alternatively, a student can join the chair as a result of transfer from another chair or department of MIPT, having passed the following theoretical-minimum exams: after the 3rd or 4th semester — Mathematics-I and Mechanics; after the 5th semester — Mechanics and Field theory; after the 6th semester — Quantum mechanics.

Our students take three exams from the theoretical-minimum series during their initial three years (Mechanics, Field theory, and Quantum mechanics).

The MSc education program is realized in a network form together with the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology. To be admitted at the masters-program level after the fourth year, one needs to pass the theoretical-minimum exams in Quantum mechanics and Statistical physics-I and an interview.
