Continuing of founders traditions

In the era of IT technologies and innovative projects we sometimes forget about fundamental branches of engineering, foundry in particular. But thanks to the casting technology we get workpieces with complex configuration and geometry and high (98%) utilization rate of metal.

The artistic casting of the Kyiv Polytechnic

Firstly, the metal come to people’s life as a need: tools, machines and mechanisms, decorations. The first products from alloys were appeared on the verge of coal and copper ages - V-VI BC.

For 90th anniversary of the Department of Foundry Production

Preparing of foundry engineer in “Kyiv Polytechnic Institute” has begun from the very beginning of Institute foundation. The Department of Metallurgy was organized by Professor V.P. Izhevsky in 1902 year on Chemistry Section, and the General Metals Technology Department was organized by Professor M.A. Voropaev in 1910 year on Mechanics Section. Several foundry engineers graduated from Mechanics and Chemistry faculties in accordance with Diploma design process up to 1925 year.
