        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. From 2006 to 2021 the faculty was headed by Doctor of Biological Sciences, Professor Oleksiy Dugan.

Today, the Faculty of Biotechnology and Biotechnics, which since 2021 has been headed by the Dean, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Tetiana Todosiichuk, has 3 departments:


·  Industrial biotechnology and

·  Biotechnics and engineering

·  Bioenergy, bioinformatics and     ecobiotechnology         


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 provides training of highly qualified professionals for modern sectors of biotechnology: microbial synthesis of biologically active compounds, immune- biotechnology, genetic engineering biotechnology, biotechnology of pharmaceutical drugs, eco biotechnology, bioenergetics, biodegradation of wastes, obtaining a useful substance from the biomass and wastes, bio testing of pollutions, engineering support of biotechnological and pharmaceutical productions, molecular biotechnology and bioinformatics. 

The faculty graduates specialists in the following specialties:

     133 Industrial Engineering
     162 Biotechnology and Bioengineering

From 2022,the faculty recruits full-time and part-time entrants for only one specialty:

     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.




Graduates of the Faculty can develop and implement the latest technological processes and design equipment for biotechnological and pharmaceutical productions, monitor and protect the environment from man-made impacts competently and scientifically, and simulate biotechnological processes to determine the optimum conditions of biosynthesis, destruction of wastes, and optimization of damaged ecosystems through the widespread use of the most advanced mathematical methods and computer technology.
