The chair “Mechanics of plasticity and resource-saving processes”

Department of Mechanics of material plasticity and resource-saving processes trains bachelors in “Engineering Mechanics” (4 years) and Masters in Mechanical Engineering specializing in “Equipment Metal Forming” (additional 2 years).
Training and scientific work on the improvement of technology and equipment for forming parts by plastic deformation began in KPI in 1898.
Among 10 experts who defended diploma in the first graduate of the mechanical engineering department of KPI in 1903, 3 of them had specialty in metal forming.
The department has trained over 4,000 specialists in metal forming. Among the graduates of the Department – academicians, corresponding members of the Academy of Sciences, more than 25 doctors, 75 PhD, hundreds of heads of state and private enterprises, civil servants of higher level.
Today, the department has six professors, six associate professors, two senior lecturers and eight assistants.
Our more than 100-year history indicates of a long tradition, a great experience, high quality teaching and recognition among experts from different organizations and industries Ukraine.
