MIPT History Overview
Eight Nobel Prize laureates have worked as MIPT
MIPT was created in 1951 on the base of the physics and
technology faculty of the Moscow State University (1946-1951).
P. Kapitsa, L. Landau, N. Semenov, A. Sakharov,
I. Tamm, A. Prokhorov, V. Ginzburg, A. Abrikosov
During its 60-year history, over 30,000 students graduated
from MIPT. Among these:
- Over 17,000 graduates received the Candidate of Sciences degree
- Over 6,000 graduates received the Doctor of Sciences degree
- Over 150 graduates became academicians and corresponding members of the

Nobel Prize laureates in physics for the year 2010

A. Geim and K. Novoselov are the only example of
acknowledgment of the modern Russian education
system on the highest international level in the
competitive advantages and challenges
