Materials for Energy Storage and Conversion

Bachelor of Science in Chemistry

Under a network agreement
with Mendeleev University (RCTU)

About the program
In collaboration with Mendeleev University, the program delivers highly educated specialists with deep academic and innovative backgrounds. Students of the program learn to tackle current and future challenges in energy production, conversion and storage. The curriculum is designed to focus on applied materials chemistry, which is required by economic and technological development.
Mode, duration
4 years (full-time)
Students of the program receive two diplomas: from Skoltech and from Mendeleev University
Courses at Skoltech are taught
entirely in English
The aim of the program is to foster a new generation of STEM leaders in applied chemistry of innovative materials, who are currently in demand on the Russian market, and hold a skillset to develop applied solutions for energy conversion and storage technologies, and such fields as batteries, photovoltaics, electrocatalysts, semiconductors, etc.

The graduates of the program will be able to:
design and develop new functional materials for energy technologies
meet the emerging expectations of materials production industries

deploy the next generation energy storage systems
A key component of your studies is independent research work at world–class laboratories. The following research areas are available for you:
  • Metal-ion batteries (Li-ion, Na-ion, K-ion)
  • Solid-state and low-temperature batteries
  • (Electro/photo)catalysis
  • Photovoltaics and optoelectronics
