A brief historical note

TPZ Department prepares and publishes specialist in "Restoring and improving the durability of parts and structures" under the direction of 132 bachelor "Materials". The department has a license to train masters graduates of Master stated spetsialnosti.Takozh have the opportunity to become a graduate, perform scientific work within the PhD program and receive a doctorate PhD.

The main scientific directions of the department are: materials science problems; technology recovery and increase the durability of machine parts and devices using welding and related technologies or fabrication; Engineering.
TM first head became Ph.D., associate professor Oleg Zaitsev, who headed the department from 1970 to 1978. Changed his Ph.D., Professor IK White, who led the department for almost 3 years. Since September 1981 the department head came the famous scientist Ph.D. Professor Zhukov AA, which already at that time it was published more than 300 scientific papers and several books, worked in several international unions materialoznavtsiv and smelters. A. Zhukov organized training new specialty in our university, for which until now has students, and created the Department TPZ. AA Zhukov was a recognized scholar in the field of geometric thermodynamics alloys. During the period of the university in person and together with scientists of the department published more than 300 scientific and methodological works. The results of his research in the twentieth century it became a hundred of the best scientists of the Soviet Union and the collection of outstanding scientists of world renown. While working at the department defended his second doctoral thesis Doctor of chemical sciences.

Zhukov A.O.

Since 2002 the department is headed by Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Valery Savulyak. He is a graduate of our university, in 2003 he defended at Specialized Academic Council of the Institute of Materials NASU doctoral thesis "Scientific basis for the formation of iron alloys metalokarbidnyh composite layers with stable structures and increased triboengineering characteristics." In 2005 he was awarded the title of professor. It has around 190 scientific and educational works, including 4 monographs, 12 patents, 11 textbooks.

Currently, the department has six full-time teachers. 1 of them holds a PhD, PhD degree in technical sciences - 5 people. The effectiveness of the educational process and the quality of training provided by the presence of 11 scientific and educational laboratories and centers welding. Most training equipment does not only display functions, but also used in scientific research faculty and students. Widely used electronic aids, computer technology, modern information technology. Teaching process is built according to the requirements of the Bologna Convention on the use of credit-modular system ECTS. Teaching students commonly combined with production activities at the Center for welding and participation in research. Since 2002, teachers and employees of the Department prepared and published 6 monographs, 25 manuals and guidelines. Created in 2005 and equipped with modern facilities Centre welding allowed to create perfect conditions for training students of 1 year for workers in "electric welders." The high level of orders suggests a large amount of university on manufacturing and restoration desks, plastic windows, implemented with the involvement of our students. Combining work when two trimesters 2 and 3 courses for workers positions with the study of real technologies and equipment during practices 4 and 5 courses our students have access to thorough knowledge not only in welding, but also in advanced technology materials science and surface engineering.

The department continued research in the field of Materials who started AA Zhukov, and developing new research areas and their practical application to solve the problems of restoring and improving durability of machinery and transport equipment in particular. In theoretical terms - the development of the theory of composite materials, their durability and stability properties. The department develops technology coating on the details of mobile technology. For important practical significance for the city. Vinnitsa was the development and implementation under the leadership of VI Savulyak complex recovery processes and increase the durability of complex parts municipal electric.

Separate promising line of research - the problem of waste, a life that is complete product life cycle of materials and products. Waste must collect, neutralize, to select useful for reuse. Promising to be used as an alternative fuel waste wood and other plants. He defended his thesis on this subject Berezyuk EV, is a graduate student Biloshytskyy SA
TPZ Chair created in 1992 at the Department of Materials, which has worked since 1970.

The official history of the department of Materials (TM) begins with 1970, but the beginning of the creation of material and technical base of almost coincides with the date of creation of Vinnytsia branch of the Kiev Polytechnic Institute and the first set of students. A first students were future mechanical engineers. The fundamental courses for these professionals has been more than a century and remain "technology metals" (later "Technology of construction materials") and "Materials" that students begin to study 2nd year. Modern industry town then developed. The engineers, especially mechanics were extremely necessary. Because all plants and equipment department helped the old and the new. The first laboratory of metal technology was established in the annex to the monastery on the street Polina Osipenko. Already in 1966 there was established a number of students and machine tools for learning the bases execution processing technology details. After the completion of the first building and dormitory №1 our branch office moved from downtown to the current campus. Immediately hands of students began construction technology laboratory building of metals and metal equipment from the remnants of building materials.
