Russia's first workshop was organized by the radioactivity of the University of Moscow before the revolution. In 1948, a group of employees was based SINP special nuclear workshop, and later opened a special radiopraktikum, the overall nuclear and atomic workshop. During the implementation of the educational program of the unique space project "MSU-250" created space workshop. With a computer class actively in the process of implementation of the learning process of new computer and information technologies.
Russia's first workshop was organized by the radioactivity of the Moscow University, AP Sokolov and KP Yakovlev before the revolution. In 1948, a group of employees NIFI-2 (current SINP) under the direction of Professor IM Frank (later Nobel laureate and academician) and FL Shapiro was established special nuclear workshop. Under the direction of A. Sanin, a special radiopraktikum in which students studied the development, production and application in the study of nuclear physics of electronic devices. During the existence of the workshop has undergone a sea change, and quite rapidly, with the development of nuclear physics, changed the objectives, methods and techniques.
In 1954 he created the overall nuclear workshop. A year later, was created under the direction of atomic workshop SY Lukyanov. Currently in workshops using the latest techniques and processing system of physical experiment. Each year about 900 students in the physics department was pilot training in general courses in atomic and nuclear physics.
Learning laboratory "Computer Class" was established in 1995 to design and implementation of the learning process of new computer and information technologies, as well as access to computing and telecommunications facilities SINP for students and nuclear compartment, do research at INP.
In 2005, during the implementation of the educational program of the unique space project "MSU-250" at INP began work on the organization of the new academic departments - laboratory "space workshop." After the successful launch of microsatellite "University-Tatiana" was equipped with modern training class that started regular classes students of cosmic rays and space physics and astronomy department Physics Department of Moscow State University.
