History of the Department

The origin of the Department of Professional Education in Technologies and Design of the Kyiv National University of Technologies and Design dates back to 1948 when the Department of Foreign Languages of the University (at that time - the Kyiv Institute of Light Industry) set up a section of the Russian language for the training of foreign citizens.

The Department was renamed to Department of Professional Education in Technologies and Design in 2017.
