History of Khmelnytskyi Polytechnic College

We invite you to become witnesses of the main events that took place in our educational establishment.

The history of Khmelnytskyi Electromechanical Technical School began in the first half of the 60s of the last century, together with the foundation of a transformer substation plant (today – “Ukrelectroaparat”). Founded in 1957, it produced high-voltage equipment, mainly disconnectors.
The construction of the plant was completely finished in 1965. Then it employed 3000 workers, who produced electrical equipment, so the need for skilled staff increased.

That is why in 1965 the Podilskyi Regional Council (Vinnytsia) decided to establish the Khmelnytskyi Electromechanical Technical School (“KhEMT”), which was located in the building of the former school number 9 (the Industrial Street, now- the Chornovol Street). M. Petrash, the Director of the plant, was constantly interested in the problems of the technical school. He played a major role in the establishing and constructing of the technical school, and provided great practical assistance and support to the material and technical base of laboratories and classrooms.
Ivan Altukhov was the first director, who headed KhEMT. Teachers' team consisted of 13 teachers, who met the first most difficult 6 years of the development of the educational establishment. The wise teachers were the strong supporters of the director, namely: M.Petrash, T.Malakhova, O.Shamarina, L.Shklyar, O.Ageeva, E.Patuk, V.Osatyuk, M.Mazurenko.

In 1965, 157 boys and girls were enrolled in two departments - "Electric Machine-Building" and "Metal Cutting". In a short time, with the help of the basic enterprise of the transformer substation plant, 12 classrooms and laboratories were created and equipped.

Filimon Andriy Grigorchuk headed the team of KhEMT from 1971 to 1974. Under his leadership, the construction of a new building was completed, 24 rooms and laboratories were equipped, and in 1972 a new specialty was created - "Technician-technologist on operation of digital program - controlled machine tools".

In the period of 1974-1979, with the help of the transformer substation plant, the material base of the technical school was strengthened, mechanical and metal workshops were equipped. At that time Vasyl Zbrytskyi, who had a huge influence on the development of technical, scientific and artistic creativity, headed the staff of the technical school.

In 1979-1984, Director Gennadiy Kliuiev headed it. In that period, that was a new level, methodological work was prepared and methodological complexes were created for all subjects.

Mykola Bodaretskyi, Honored Worker of Education in Ukraine, an academician, excellent educator, wise leader, good decent man, headed our team from 1984 to 2014. Thanks to his initiative, energy and perseverance, our institution has become one of the best in Podillia. The material and technical base of the establishment was enriched, new specialties were created: "Computer and intelligent systems and networks maintenance", "Management in the production sphere", "Programming for electronic computers and automated systems", "Economics of Enterprise." Training specialists in the seven specialties was underway; students received certificates of the computer operator, the small business accountant, the driver of the category B.

The college was awarded the prizes of the Ministry of Defense of the Soviet Union for the qualitative training of specialists and military-patriotic education of youth ten times. The establishment took prize places at the exhibitions of technical creativity of the Ministry of Electrotechnical Industry of the USSR. Our college was awarded the Red Flag of the Ministry of Higher and Secondary Special Education of the Ukrainian SSR and Ukrprograda for the work of student youth in a socially useful life.

In 2014, Vadym Ovcharuk, Management and Economics PhD, assistant professor, was elected to the position of a director. With his active support already on March 23, 2015, the college was joined to the Lviv Polytechnic National University. It gave a new powerful impetus to the development of the college. We annually increase the number of student contingent. In 2018, for the first time in the history of the existence of our establishment, an additional winter set of graduates of vocational schools for entrants in 4 areas for correspondence training was carried out.

Qualitative training and production training is responsible for the connection with production enterprises: TEMP Ltd, Euro-Export Plus Ltd, Hydroarmation Plant Ltd, Ukrelectroaparat Ltd, Megakars Ltd, Audi-Center Khmelnitsky Ltd, Ltd "Leader Service", Ltd "Trading House Euromotors", Ltd "Prestige-Auto", Ltd "Forcing auto", Ltd "Opus-Auto plus", "Inter" Diesel station ", " Khmelnychynna-Auto ", Autocentre "LIGA-II", Autocentre "LIGA", "Universal" station, "Crystal", Private enterprise "Open system", Company "Stfalcon"

In college, students are actively involved in coursework, and they are able to get a driver's license of the category "B". In addition to courses for drivers, courses in computer science, programming, 3-D simulation are available for students. Thanks to signing an agreement with American partners, we received 60 seats for the SOLIDWORKS licensing program, it allows us to issue certificates not only for working in Ukraine, but also in Europe and the United States.

In order to provide dual education, our college, in the field of "Maintenance of program-controlled machine tools and robotic systems" and "Materials Processing Technology on machine tool and automatic transfer lines", in 2018 was established a partnership format for cooperation to the German-Ukrainian educational center of "Lviv Polytechnic" INDUSTRY AND TRADE OF ERFURT. The students of the Mechanical Engineering Department will undergo an internship in the Federal Republic of Germany to improve their professional skills, where they will receive a qualification certificate that will enable them to work in the European Union. We will distribute this format of cooperation to other specialties.

At Khmelnytskyi Polytechnic College an innovative project, the Tech StartUp School division, was set up for the efficiency of the institution, students' interest in studying and scientific work.

Khmelnytskyi Polytechnic College by Lviv Polytechnic National University got a victory in the nomination "Educational institution" in the city of Khmelnytskyi for the results of 2015 and 2016.

Student teams of the Physical Training Department staff constantly get the first places in the general sports schools, educational institutions of the I-II levels of accreditation of the city of Khmelnytskyi and the regional basketball competitions among the higher educational establishments of the I-II accreditation level. In the general rating of the City volleyball teams, our team is the undisputed leader.

Our students are real patriots. Having carried out the flash mob “Trident of vyshyvankas”, in 2017 and 2018 we set the national records, which were registered in the Book of Records of Ukraine, as 1961 participants, clothed in embroidery, created a trident structure.

Upon graduation from the college, graduates can continue their studies at the college-based Lviv Polytechnic national University branch to receive a complete higher education in a shorter form there or in other institutions of higher education, which concluded a cooperation agreement, but the largest number of college graduates received a diploma of higher education at Lviv Polytechnic National University.

In 2018, the architectural style of our college was renewed, to a certain degree, it became similar to the Lviv Polytechnic National University, and therefore our slogan became a good addition to their slogan - Artibus dotsento Diskimus – In teaching sciences and arts, and we study.
