Education and Career
In 1980 graduated with honors from the Kharkov Institute of Radio Electronics, specializing in “Design and Technology of Computing Equipment” and completed the diploma project “Logic modules and amplifiers of information converters”, having received the qualification of the engineer-designer-technologist of electronic-computer equipment. After graduating, stayed in the research department of the department of technical electronics. Worked as an engineer, junior researcher, senior engineer, senior lecturer, senior researcher.
In 1984 graduated from the postgraduate study, successfully defended Ph.D thesis “Methods and algorithms for optimizing the allocation of heat sources in multi-crystalline microassemblies, taking into account the conditions for tracing electrical connections”.
During 1989-1992 studied at the KNURE doctoral program and defended Dr. of Sc. thesis “Theoretical Foundations of Automated Design of Technical Systems based on Multicrystal Chips”. In 1994 became professor at the biomedical electronics department.
In the following years worked as an associate professor, professor of the biomedical electronics department, deputy dean of the faculty of electronic equipment for educational work, vice-rector for educational work (1995-2003), the first vice-rector of KNURE (2003-2012).
Since 2017 – Rector of the Kharkov National University of Radio Electronics.
Teaches courses: “Automation of Digital Devices Designing”, “Designing FPGA in Biomedical Equipment”, “Organization of the Activity of Technical Regulatory Subdivisions and Institutions”, “Designing Measurement Tools”, “Designing Measurement Tools and Information Measurement Systems”, “Automation of Experimental research”, “Methodology of creation of complexes of high quality”.
In 1997, at the Department of Biomedical Electronic Devices and Systems Professor V.V. Semenets created a research group on the development of biomedical equipment and multifunctional microprocessor systems. Twenty years ago, he founded a scientific school of microprocessor medical systems, which today, as a member of the professor O.G. Avrunina, assistant professors T.V. Nosova, L.O. Averyanova, T.V. Zhemchuzhkina, senior teacher O.I. Sklyar develops multifunctional microprocessor systems in medicine. Under the supervision of V.V. Semenets has 3 doctoral dissertations (A.M. Sinotin, I.V. Prasol, O.G. Avrunin), 8 Ph.D theses.
In 2004-2005 under his leadership a set of multifunctional laboratory stands was created, which includes microcontrollers, signal processors, programmable integrated circuits, on the basis of which various autonomous control systems are developed. The complex is used not only in KNURE, but also in many universities in Ukraine.
In 2007-2012 under the guidance of V.V. Semenets a hardware-software complex of high-precision neurosurgical interventions and functional diagnostics of external respiration was created. The complex is used in the neurosurgical and otorhinolaryngology departments of the Kharkiv Regional Clinical Hospital.
In 2010-2012 for the first time in Ukraine under the leadership of V.V. Semenets developed and created a unique installation for remote conducting of laboratory works on technical disciplines. Used today in the process of distance learning.
