Head of the Department
Professor, Doctor of Technical Sciences
(established in 1932)
The department carries out training of specialists in the specialty 131 "Applied Mechanics" - bachelors in educational program "Packaging Equipment Mechatronics" and masters in educational programs "Mechatronics and Robotics", "Packaging Machines and Technologies", "Packaging Machines and Resources".
In addition to the basic, more than 25 new disciplines were introduced to new training plans, which are mainly aimed at assimilating computer technologies during the calculations, designing and operation of equipment for packaging industry.
The world's packaging industry, like in Ukraine, is changing rapidly. So they requires an influx of highly skilled and flexible professionals.
The rapid development of the packaging industry over the last 50 years has had and continues to be reversed, since packaging, after fulfilling its purpose, are subject to processing and disposal. Important steps have been taken in developed countries to collect, sort and recycle this waste, but in Ukraine these technologies are politically and economically hampered.
The changing of packaging industry has no alternative and requires the training of appropriate technicians to develop technologies and equipment. Moreover, waste packaging is not only a source of additional energy resources, but also a great secondary material. The need for specialists in this industry is constantly studied and predicted its steady growth. This is indicated by the creation of appropriate state and commercial structures in Ukraine and other countries of Europe and the world.
The department has all the necessary conditions for the training of highly qualified specialists of industry and scientific and pedagogical staff.
We use specialized new modern laboratories of "Mechatroniks", "Pneumatics"and " Robotic complexes '' in the educational process. Teachers of the department have developed and implemented in the educational process of the program of general engineering disciplines: "Theory of mechanisms and machines", "Machine parts", "Mechanization of transport systems", "Pneumatics and pneumatic actuators" and also professional disciplines: "Packaging materials", "Fundamentals of design and packaging design", "Packaging equipment", "Packaging technology", "Packaging processing technology", "Packaging processing equipment", "Packaging equipment", "Calculation and design of packaging equipment", "Calculation and design of packing processing equipment" ,"Automated production lines", "Mechatronics", "Robotic complexes in packing processes". A total of 45 disciplines are taught.
The department has a computer class with a network of modern computers. Students have the opportunity to use modern software AutoCAD, MechanicalDesktop, COMPASS-3D, Mathcad, FluidDRAW, FluidSim, APM WinMachine, Photoshop in the educational process and research.
During the years of existence of the graduating department, about 1500 specialists were trained.
