About the Department
History of Department Development

The Department of Energetics was founded at Kyiv Polytechnic Institute of Leather Industry (KPILI) in November, 1931. The lectures of thermal and electrical engineering were delivered at the Department. Dushskiy Pavlo Ovsiyovych, the associated professor, was appointed as a Head of the Department.

In 1934, the Department of Energy was divided into two parts: Thermal Engineering and Electrical Engineering. The professor Gregory Moyseyevych Gorodetsky became the Head of the Department. He headed the department until 1948. The professor G. Gorodetsky worked part-time at the Department of Electrical Utilities at Kyiv Polytechnic Institute.

That period the power engineers for light industry enterprises were trained at the institute. The department was an integral part of the Mechanics and Energy Faculty. The training of experts was carried out by: Professor Kholmsky V.G., Ph.D. Kvachev G.S., teachers Kashpyrovskyy, Spylko V.F. and others.

In 1948, the Department was headed by associate professor Repetin Olexander Petrovych, who began to work at the institute in 1947. He had an extensive practical experience in the industry - he had worked as «Donbasenergo» Chief Engineer. He was elected as the Dean of the Mechanical Department for the period from 1952 to 1969.

Associate Professor Repetin O.P. had worked until 1972 as the Head of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Equipment. During this period the Department has significantly strengthened its material and technical base. The laboratory areas were increased. In 1965 the branch of the Department of laboratory facilities was opened at Darnitskiy Silk Factory. In 1967-1972 the laboratory of Electrical Engineering worked at the Kiev Radio Plant. That time the courses of Electrical Engineering, Electrical Machines, Electric Actuators, Theoretical Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering were introduced at the Department. The Department trained the specialists in general and engineering areas of all specialties of the Institute.

For the period of 1948-1972 the Department performed 12 contractual scientific and research works with the enterprises of light industry. These works were performed for «Kyiv» footwear factory, Kherson and Ternopil cotton plants. The Department worked with Kiev GPI-5. Four theses were defended during that period. In 1970 «Light Industry» publishing house issued the textbook, where the Associate Professor Repetin O.P became the co-author.

Since 1972 the Department was headed by Professor Skrypnyck Yuriy Olexiyovych, who was invited from the Institute of Electrodynamics of the Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. He worked for one year at the Department and was transferred for further work in the Department of Automation and Mechanization of Chemical and Technological Processes.

Since 1973 till 1974 the Department was temporarily headed by Repetin AP, and in 1974 the Associate Professor Olexander Sergiyovych Tolstouchov became the Head of the Department. The young and promising specialists joined the Department. Thus, Kucherenko M.E., Kuleshov Y.E., Sorokolietov O.N., Usikov V.O., Sadykov V.Kh., and others came to work at the Department. A new development of the Department started both in teaching and methodical and in scientific and research works. The Department began to deliver the courses on Electronic Engineering. Created were the new courses of lectures on «Industrial Electronics», «Electrical Engineering and Electronics». The material and technical base continued to increase. The laboratories of Electronics were created. The scientific and research sector was created at the Department that performed the research works for Voronezh Electromechanical Institute / «Energy» Scientific and Productive Assocition /. The main scientific and research direction was studying and developing of semiconductor converters of electrical energy.

In 1984 the Department staff was awarded with the Diploma of Yu.O.Gagarin, the first Soviet cosmonaut, for training of highly qualified specialists and considerable contribution to the Space Research of the USSR.

In 1990 the Department was headed by Kuleshov Yuriy Yevgenovych, the Associate Professor, the Candidate of Technical Sciences, who elevated firmly and decisively the work of Department to more responsible and higher level.

Since 1991 the Department has been permitted to train the specialists in Electronics. The Department turned into the issuing one and received its present name – the Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering. Since 1991 academic year the admission of students in a new specialty of «Electronic Systems» has started.

Since 1999 the Department has introduced the three-level training of specialists for degrees of the Bachelor of «Electronics», the Specialist of «Electronic Systems», the Master of «Electronic Systems». Permission to graduate the Masters was obtained after the Department accreditation in 2000-2001.

In 1993 the Associate Professor Kuleshov Yu.O., the Head of the Department, was elected as a full member of the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences of National Progress. In 2001 he was decorated with the honorary title – «Honored Worker of Education of Ukraine».

Since April 2011 till September 2014 the Department was headed by Kaplun Viktor Volodymyrovych, the Doctor of Technical Sciences, who moved to the Department from the National University of Life and Environmental Sciences of Ukraine.

In 2013 Department gained the permission to train the Bachelors of «Electronics and Electrical Technologies». Since 2014 the admission of the students by a new direction of training has started.

Since January, 2016 the Department has been headed by SHVAYCHENKO Volodymyr Borysovych, the Candidate of Technical Sciences, Associate Professor.
