About the Department
History of the Department

The name of the department has remained unchanged since its foundation until September 10, 2019 – «The department of knitting technology». But the name of the specialty under which the department trains specialists has changed several times. In connection with the reorganization of the Department of Materials Science and Textile Examination by joining the department of knitting technology, the department was given a new name – The Department of Textile Technology and Design (TT&D).

The department of Knitwear Production Technologies for the time of its foundation was headed by:

1945-1948 рр. — ass. professor A. Shakola;

1948-1972 рр. — PhD, ass. professor L. Ignatova;

1972-1981 рр. — doctor of technical sciences, professor F. Moyseyenko;

1981-1988 рр. — PhD, ass. Professor L. Vaschinskiy;

1988-1993 рр. — PhD, ass. Professor  S. Shapovalenko;

1993-2009рр. – PhD, professor  L. Krylova;

Since September 2009 р. – PhD, ass. professor L. Halavska.

Department of material science was established in the Kyiv technological institute of light industry (KTILP) in 1953.

During the whole period of its existence the department was headed by:

1953-1977 рр. – PhD, professor M. Pozhidayev;
1977-1982 рр. – PhD, ass. professor A. Kovalsky;
1983-1987 рр. – PhD, ass. professor R. Efremov;
1987-2007 рр. – PhD, professor V. Rybalchenko;
2007-2019 рр. – doctor of technical sciences, professor N. Suprun.

Since September 2019, after the reorganization, the Department of Textile Technology and Design is headed by Doctor of technical sciences, professor Liudmyla Yevgeniyivna Halavska.

 

Teaching Staff

Special vocational training of students is led by a highly qualified teaching staff of the department, including 5 professors, 8 associate professors and 1 senior teacher. The number of teachers with academic degrees and academic titles is 99%.
