About the faculty
The School of Electronic Engineering comprises 140 instructors and employees (57 Candidates of Science and Associate Professors, 19 Doctors of Science, Professors), and nearly 500 students. TheSchoolofElectronic Engineeringwas founded in 1964 at the Kharkiv Institute of Machine Building, Automation and Computer Engineering. At first it was known as Radio Physics andElectronicsSchool. In 1964 the first students were enrolled in specialities 0704 – “Radio Physics and Electronics” (RE), 0612 – “Industrial Electronics” (IE) and “Electronic Devices” (ED). In 1991 the School got its modern name.
The School of Electronic Engineering trains specialists in the areas of knowledge 0508 “Electronics” in four majors (bachelor, specialist and master- level programs): 6.050801 “Micro- and Nanoelectronics” (7.05088101, 8.05080101 “Micro- and Nanoelectronic Devices and Appliances”); 6.050802 “Electronic Appliances and Systems” (7.05080201, 8.05080101 “Electronic Devices and Appliances”); 6.051004 “Optical Engineering” and “Laser and Optoelecronic Engineering” (7.05100402, 8.05100402); 6.051402 “Biomedical Engineering” (7.05140201, 8.05140201 – “Biomedical Engineering”, 7.05140203, 8.05140203 – “Information Technologies in Biomedicine”.
Ten state-of-the-art problem-oriented laboratories function at the School. The students undertake internship abroad (in Russia, England, France, Germany, Sweden, Poland) in programs of the world leading Universities, furthermore, over 300 students from far- abroad countries study at KhNURE. The instruction is given in Russian, Ukrainian and English.
Science and international cooperation
Over the last 10 years instructors and scientists of the School have published more than 900 academic papers and reports in scientific and technical journals, about 40 monographs and textbooks. 75 Candidates and Doctors of Science have defended their dissertations. Close cooperation has been established with leading companies in the global IT industry including ST Microelectronics, European leader among the manufacturers of electronic components. Cooperation has been established with many educational and scientific institutions among which are the University of Hannover, Solar Energy Institute (Germany), the Universities of Ravir and Verdzhil (Spain). Scientists have strong links and carry out joint projects with scientists from Belgium, France, Great Britain, Germany, Russia, Spain. High educational level provides motivated young people’s desire to master high technological culture.
