ITMO University is a recognized leader in IT, Optics, Photonics and Quantum Communications, Robotics, Biotechnologies and Smart Materials.
ITMO is located in St. Petersburg, the Northern Capital and cultural center of Russia. Here, you will find more than 300 museums and around 70 theaters. But there’s more to our city than culture and beautiful sights. It’s also one of Russia's largest industrial, educational and scientific centers. Whether you're coming here to study or work, you’re sure to enjoy the unique atmosphere of Russia's most European city.
Over the past few years, ITMO has developed from a specialized technical institute into a trailblazer shaping the national education and research policy in Russia. We know that persistence and vision pay off.
Our new approach to learning – ITMO Code – builds on the values of respect for the individual, integrity, academic freedom, openness and love. It blends fundamental and unique competencies and also recognizes the importance of professional and soft skills, which is a completely new area for Russian universities.
Our biggest and boldest project right now is ITMO.HIGHPARK, a $650 million development that will be the University’s new campus and a major cluster for education, research and innovative manufacturing in St. Petersburg.
ITMO University loves to break new ground and it’s serious about the results. In 2017, our students became the only team in the world to win ICPC International Collegiate Programming Contest seven times. ITMO placed 76th in THE World University Rankings in Computer Science and 27th in THE World University Rankings: BRICS & Emerging Economies.
