ABOUT THE FACULTY OF CIVIL ENGINEERING
- The mission of the faculty is to train highly qualified personnel who know the secrets of erecting modern buildings and structures and know how to implement them in practice.
- The educational process at the Faculty of Civil Engineering is provided by more than 200 scientific and pedagogical workers. Among them are about 50 professors and 120 associate professors.
- At the faculty, almost two thousand students (a third are part-time), more than 50 post-graduate students (in nine specialties), and doctoral students study at the same time. The dual master’s degree program of the Faculty of Civil Engineering of KNUBA with the Faculty of Construction and Architecture of the Lublin Polytechnic and the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the Krakow Polytechnic University (Poland) is in operation.
- All graduates are employed in construction companies, and design and scientific institutions in Kyiv and other cities of Ukraine.
- Students acquire educational and qualification levels of bachelor’s and master’s in four specialties:
The Faculty of Civil Engineering prepares bachelors and masters in specialties
192 “Construction and Civil Engineering” (educational program “Industrial and Civil Construction”),
051 “Economics” (educational program “Enterprise Economics”),
071 “Accounting and Taxation” (educational program “Accounting and Audit “),
073 “Management” (educational program “Management of organizations and administration”).
The faculty includes 11 departments:
- economic theory, accounting, and taxation;
- construction mechanics;
- strength of materials;
- reinforced concrete and stone structures;
- construction technologies;
- construction organization and management;
- construction economics;
- metal and wooden structures;
- theoretical mechanics;
- management in construction.
The faculty traces its history from the day the Kyiv Construction Institute was established. Starting from 1930, this division of the institute functioned as a department, and from September 1934 – as a civil engineering faculty. Initially, the faculty trained specialists in two specialties: “Building structures” and “Organization and production of construction works.” In 1939, they were united into one – “Industrial and civil construction”. During 1941-1943, during the fascist occupation of the territory of Ukraine, the faculty did not work. He resumed his work in December 1943. The activity of faculty employees was aimed at training engineers in the specialties “Industrial and civil construction” and “Manufacturing of construction products and details.” In November 1955, in connection with the expansion of the fields of activity, the Faculty of Construction and Technology was separated from the Faculty of Construction. Over the course of the faculty’s activity, a number of scientific divisions were created at the faculty’s departments to conduct scientific research and solve complex national economic problems:
- problematic research laboratory of thin-walled spatial structures (1961, at the Department of Construction Mechanics); since 1991 – Research Institute of Construction Mechanics;
- branch research laboratory (1967, at the department of fundamentals and foundations);
- Ukrainian Territorial Branch Research Laboratory (1968, at the Department of Construction Organization and Economics);
- problematic research laboratory of soil silicates (1969, at the department of reinforced concrete and stone structures);
- branch research laboratory of building structures (1976, at the department of reinforced concrete and stone structures);
- branch research laboratory of construction structures of potash enterprises (1978, at the department of metal and wooden structures);
- branch research laboratory of bases and foundations of agricultural buildings and structures (1979, at the department of bases and foundations); since 2008 – research laboratory of bases and foundations in difficult engineering and geological conditions;
- research laboratory of numerical methods in geotechnics (2003, at the department of foundations);
- research laboratory of transport construction problems (2016).
Over the years of operation, the faculty has trained more than 20,000 specialists for construction organizations, design, and scientific institutions. Citizens of many countries receive their education at the faculty: every year more than 160 young men and women from more than 20 countries of the world.
