        National Technical University of Ukraine “Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute” (Igor Sikorsky KPI) is one of the largest and most famous higher educational institutions in Europe, which trains specialists in accordance with the priority areas of development of Ukraine and the world. In January 2001, the first Faculty of Biotechnology and Biotechnology in Ukraine was established at NTUU “KPI” on the basis of the Department of Biotechnology of the Department of General and Bioorganic Chemistry, headed by L. Shinkarenko. Kyiv Polytechnic was the founder not only of a new direction of training, but also a new view of modern realities of life.

Today, the Faculty of Biotechnology and Biotechnics, which since 2006 has been headed by the Dean, Doctor of Biological Sciences, Professor Oleksiy Duhan, has 4 departments:

   

       ·         Industrial biotechnology

·         Engineering and Biotechnic 

·         Ecobiotechnology and bioenergy

·         Bioinformatics

                       

Biotechnology is the science of obtaining the necessary human products and materials using living organisms and special equipment - biotechnic:

  • Industrial biotechnology develops and implements in practice the technology of obtaining biologically active substances, drugs, food additives, bacterial fertilizers, plant protection products, etc.;
  • Engineering and Biotechnic is an important component of any industrial process of obtaining biotechnological and pharmaceutical products, so it is necessary to design modern equipment in the industry;
  • Ecobiotechnology and bioenergy gives mankind a renewable energy source - alcohols, hydrocarbons, hydrogen, obtained on the basis of developed technologies for bioconversion of industrial and agricultural waste;
  • Bioinformatics allows you to model biotechnological processes at the stages of development of industrial technologies, analyze and predict the properties of new biological structures and molecules. 

 The faculty graduates specialists in the following specialties:

     133 Industrial Engineering
     162 Biotechnology and Bioengineering

Specialists are trained on a budget and contract basis (full-time, part-time) at three educational and qualification levels - bachelor, master and doctor of philosophy (PhD). Doctors of sciences are being trained.
