Foreign students training


Conditions of enrolment for international students are given by the Center for International Education Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute at:

Indernational students are accepted to the University regardless of sex, race, language or religion. They have all the rights in accordance with Ukrainian legislation along with the citizens of Ukraine, free use of the university library, sports complex and inventory. The students are accommodated in University dormitories, the campus is situated nearby the University in the centre of the capital of Ukraine – Kyiv.

Usually, every year, 3-5 representatives of other states are studying at the magistracy in our department.

Every year internships of foreign students are practiced in our faculty and in the department – in English. This collaboration is supported with VISHWANIKETAN University, India:

Course duration:

  • Preparatory course – 1 year;
  • Bachelor’s degree – 4 years;
  • Master’s degree – 2 years after the bachelor program;
  • PhD (Doctor of  Philosophy) – 4 years (with a master’s degree);
  • Senior doctorate – 3 years (with a degree of candidate of science).

International students who have completed preparatory courses at Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute or other higher educational institutions of Ukraine and desire to study “Electromechanical systems of automation, electric drive and eletcromobility”, can directly contact with the Deputy Dean of work with international students (building 20, room 215) or to the Department of automation of electromechanical systems and electric drive (academic building 20, room 411, phone +380442048356) to sign the contract or get further information on the conditions of training. Foreign citizens who have secondary education and have not done preparatory course must pass an introductory interview.

Graduates receive a European diploma supplement.


Training international specialists is offered for all degrees (bachelors, masters, PhD) in full-time education (links FEA-EDA  for the list and amount of ECTS credits by courses).

Profile of specialisation

Information about studying at our Department


The department has the highest level of accreditation (level IV) and trains multifunctional specialists to develop, research, design and operate electromechanical systems of automation and electric drive, which are widely used in almost all areas of human activity: industry, transport, household appliances, service sector, military and space equipment, etc.

In electromechanical automation systems and electric drive electric energy is converted into mechanical motion energy of  technological machinery and processes, automatically operated by computer and microprocessor technology.

The wide and varied use of modern electromechanical systems of automation and electric drive determines the necessity of fundamental training of multifunctional specialists in the fields of:

    • electric drive and mechatronics;
    • automated control systems;
    • industrial computer technologies and programming;
    • automation of technical systems and robotic complexes;
    • electric transport and electric cars.

The students also get the required knowledge of technological characteristics of general industrial machinery and installations, robots and flexible manufacturing systems, industrial engineering, economics, management etc.

The department has 10 teaching laboratories equipped with modern technical computer-based facilities. Among them are unique joint laboratories with international corporations:


  • Training Center of ABB (Switzerland);


  • Training Center of EATON (USA);


  • Laboratory DTEK (Ukraine).

Due to the wide profile and high-quality training, graduates of the department have a large stable employment demand, including abroad. The department cooperates with universities in Germany, France, Poland, the UK, Italy and the US, which have student exchange programs,  double degree diploma and scholarship.

The department is proud of its graduates, including the President of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine Academician Boris Paton, hundreds of doctors and candidates of science, ministers, heads of industry associations, companies, factories and so on.

Many graduates work in leading universities and companies of Europe and the USA. Among them are Professor S. Lyashevskyy of Rochester University in New York, USA; Professor S. Bozhko – the main scientific manager of research program of Nottingham University, Great Britain; Dr. H. Markov – deputy of two convocations of the European Parliament; Viktor Ruban – employee of the National Aerospace Agency (NASA), USA; A. Tusit – the president of the world manufacturer of wind generators «Vestas», Denmark, and many others.

Today the department trains 152 students in bachelor program in Electric power engineering, electrical engineering and electromecanics (141), one of the most competitive professions in Ukraine, and 46 students enrolled in master’s and specialist programs.

Constant updating of laboratory base and introduction of new disciplines in the educational process appeal to students, who acquire high level knowledge: 131 out of 187 students have an average score above “4” (“good” and “very good” grades), 12 of them study perfectly (“A-level”).
