AMT accumulates the world's latest knowledge in design, testing and manufacturing that allows you to learn how to build anything! And what is more important - you can implement this knowledge alongside your studies. Within AMT program, we participated in several projects: manufacturing of composite materials, digital design of a stratospheric satellite, design and launch of tube-deployed UAV. In my opinion, if you want to build something impressive, AMT is a great way to learn how to do it properly.

Novosibirsk State University → Skoltech, Advanced Manufacturing Technologies
I did not want to go to graduate school. It seemed pointless to me, especially since I was already getting offers from employers. However, having learned about Skoltech, I changed my mind. Advanced technologies, the latest equipment, training in English, the ability to choose courses, including leadership and entrepreneurship ones - all this made me think that maybe I am missing out on a posh opportunity that I will never have again. And so it worked out:)
