Russian universities make mark on global rankings

2 establishments make the Times Higher Education (THE) Top 100 ranking in the physical sciences category. 4 universities also reach THE Top 200 overall rankings.

The Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology’s (MIPT) stock has risen. Compared to last year, the university jumped 30 places to joint 48th in this year's THE Top 100 list in the physical sciences category. The establishment’s higher standing is down to improved teaching and research, and its broader international outlook.

“With Project 5-100 [a Russian state program dedicated to supporting and increasing world competitiveness among Russian universities] we set up more than 50 laboratories from 2014,” Vitaly Bagan, development director at MIPT, told Russia Beyond.

The university is carrying out research in some of the most advanced fields of modern science, Bagan explained. These areas include biophysics, the creation of quantum computer components, and Arctic research including telecommunications and autonomous power engineering. This year MIPT also reached 42nd place in the Quacquarelli Symonds ranking for physical sciences (a British education company ranking).

Russia’s National Research Nuclear University MEPhI made the THE Top 100 list for another year, although it fell five spots to 89th. Despite this, the university has managed to make the list five years on the trot. Today, 20 percent of MEMPhI’s students are foreign.

In total, 4 Russian universities made the THE’s Top 200 overall ranking this year, including the Moscow State, Novosibirsk State, Tomsk Polytechnic, and St. Petersburg State Universities.
