ICYPHYS strategic goal:

to provide extensive multidisciplinary practice-oriented training in the field of innovative physics-technical intelligent (cyber-physical) systems and complexes in circuitry, program engineering, design and development, technological solutions, automatic process control systems operation and maintenance. 

Cyber-physical systems and complexes are those that consist of organic integration of sensors (sensitive elements) of various physical factors (temperature, acceleration, radiation, chemical composition, etc.), executive devices (mechanical, electrical, optical, nuclear, etc.) and intelligent information operational systems capable of self-management, self-learning, self-diagnostics.  Such systems and complexes will be highly demanded during the upcoming decades as they help measure, control and operate various physical experiments, provide radiation control, detect explosive and other dangerous elements. The complexes are widely used in geophysics, nuclear medicine, automatic process control and operation systems of atomic stations as well. 

Research infrastructure:

The Institute of Cyber-Physical Systems (ICYPHYS) was established in July 2018 at the initiative Moscow-based State Corporation ROSATOM companies.

It comprises:

  • Department # 2 “Automatics”
  • Department # 18 “Devices and Complexes Design and Development”
  • Department #24 “Applied Nuclear Physics”
  • Department #76 “Energy Machinery”.

Though being a relatively young Institute, ICYPHYS has a wide range of educational programs and it constantly strengthens its educational and research potentials.

Faculty: 50
Students: over 400


ICYPHYS academic staff and students take part in the most innovative and advanced activities of Rosatom companies. ICYPHYS educational programs are regularly reviewed and modernized by the partners, so their content responds to the latest challenges of modern science and technology.

Research capabilities:

  • Student Center for Digital Design, Modelling and Prototyping;
  • Microprocessor Development, Programming and Functional Testing Center;
  • Non-destructive Control and Material Diagnostics Center;
  • Laboratory of Neutron Measurement innovative Research;
  • Modern Spectrometric Laboratory for Radiation Analysis;
  • Student Research Bench for Oil and Diamond Field Search;
  • Unique Neutron Generator on Plasma Focus;
  • Airport Security Screening System (explosives and other dangerous elements detection).

ICYPHYS students use all the laboratories and research benches and systems for activities under course works and theses.

ICYPHYS educational benefits are:

  • Courses and modules by Rosatom leading specialists;
  • Advanced competences in engineering and digital technologies that allow our students to invent and design innovative cyber-physical products on their own;
  • modern educational and research equipment, facilities and laboratories;
  • Trainings and long-term paid internships at the lead Rosatom enterprises are held for students starting from their 3rd year of study.

Thus, ICYPHYS graduates are welcome to start their career paths in cyber developing, engineering and designing at high-tech companies that will be in high demand during the following decades.
