Moscow State Institute of Electronics and Mathematics

The Moscow Institute of Electronics and Mathematics (MIEM) was incorporated into the HSE structure on December 30, 2011 as a subdivision specializing in educating highly qualified engineers and scientists.


MIEM’s mission is to acquire fundamental knowledge and develop applied technologies in the electronics, engineering and aerospace industries.


Since its founding in 1962, MIEM has been one of the leading Russian technical universities conducting top-level research in applied mathematics, physics, electronics, IT and robotics. Today, MIEM trains specialists to work in high-tech industries by providing a full-cycle higher education through its undergraduate, Master’s and doctoral programs. Project-oriented educational programs provide our students with the opportunity to participate in professional teams at MIEM’s partner organizations, which include the largest scientific and industry corporations, institutes of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) and IT-companies: S.P. Korolev Rocket and Space Corporation Energia, Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Centre, Lavochkin Research and Production Association, Vega Radio Engineering Corporation, Gazprom Space Systems, All-Russian Research Institute for Optical and Physical Measurements Federal State Unitary Enterprise (VNIIOFI), Kapitza Institute for Physical Problems RAS, RAS Computing Centre, RAS Institute of Space Research, Centre for Scientific Research in Chernogolovka, JSC ЕС-leasing, I-Teco Company, and InterTrust Company.  Authorized centers of leading software companies such as IBM, Mentor Graphics, Autodesk, Motorola, QNAP and ZyXel are based at the Institute.


MIEM is organized into three schools (the School of Applied Mathematics, the School of Computer Engineering, the School of Electronic Engineering), 7 joint departments and 6 research laboratories. It has approximately 200 faculty members and more than 1,500 undergraduate and graduate students. Faculty members include 9 Academicans and Corresponding Members of the Russian Academy of Sciences and 34 Russian State Prize Laureates.

Moscow City

Moscow is the capital of Russia, the largest city in the country and Europe, and one of the largest cities in the world. Moscow refers to global cities having a great influence on the world because of its high economic level and population. It is the main transport hub of Russia, its political, economic, cultural, and scientific center.


Moscow features

Moscow is located in the center of the European part of Russia, between the rivers Oka and Volga. The climate is moderate continental: heavy frosts and extreme heat are rare. The average temperature in January – minus 7.2 degrees Celsius, in July – plus 20.4 degrees Celsius.

The city has the status of a separate federal subject of the Russian Federation. It is the smallest federal subject by land area.

The name of the city as well as the names of many other cities around the world, is bound with the name of the river it is standing on (the Moskva River). The river was called this way long before the settlement appeared. It is unknown who named it and what this name means. There are two main versions: Finnio-Ugric and Slavic.

According to the first one, the word “Moskva” is derived from the Finno-Ugric language group which means “river-bear”. The Slavic theory points to the stem “mosk” denoting “marshy” or “moisture, liquid, marshland, dampness”.

The city is surrounded by 6 airports, 9 railway stations, and 3 river ports. Moscow has developed a fabulous metro (subway) system. The first stations were built in 1935.

Moscow is the largest Russian financial center. About half of Russian banks are located in Moscow. Most of the largest companies are registered and have head offices in Moscow, although their manufactures might be located thousands of km from the city.

The city is the most important center of retail sales in Russia. Moscow represents about 30% of all commodities sold in Russia.

Moscow is also a large scientific center. There are a lot of scientific research institutes carrying out research in many branches, such as nuclear power, microelectronics, space exploration and other promising directions.
