General Information

The faculty of railroad construction machines was established in 1954. All the academic and research laboratories, offices are located in a main building. Student enrolment to the faculty is approximately 70 annually and the total number of students is about 400. The faculty employs an academic staff of approximately 50, including 10 professors.


The majority of the academic staff conducts research projects and they are mostly supported by the state Committee for Scientific Research in the forms of grants. In addition to this kind of investigations the famous scientists of the faculty take part in research and engineering projects in cooperation with industry.

These are such scientific direction as:

  • Optimization of frictional systems (doct of techn sciens., prof Shapovalov V.V.)
  • Working out and optimization of nonpolluting silicate lubricants structures (doct of techn sciens., prof Mayba I.A.)
  • Resource saving technologies at worn out details restoration of knots of vehicles (doct of techn sciens., prof Boyko N.I.)

Student Life

The students of the faculty take an active part in all forms of University life. By participating in the work of Faculty Councils, Trade – Union organization and other representative bodies, the students help to make decisions that are crucial for the present and the future of the University. The students create a unique atmosphere for their lives by achieving their goals in their hobbies and interests like acting, performances, dancing, music and foreign travel. Participating in the research work they can put their interests into practice and consciously choose the profiles of their future professional careers.
