CMC is the leading Russian research and training center in the fields of applied mathematics, computing and software development . Education at CMC combines in-depth theoretical studies, extensive practical exercises, and research.

Main 12 Master's programs:


A group of professors and scholars from Department of Physics and Department of Mechanics and Mathematics led by Andrey Tikhonov founded CMC in 1970. The three departments are still closely connected.

The faculty houses the 33,072-processor Lomonosov supercomputer in Moscow and was ranked the 18th-fastest supercomputer in the world, and the third-fastest in Europe. The system was designed by T-Platforms, and used Xeon 2.93 GHz processors, Nvidia 2070 GPUs, and an Infiniband interconnect. Following companies work with CS MSU: Intel, Microsoft, Sun Microsystems, Borland, Software AG, Siemens, IBM/Lotus, Samsung, HP.
