Faculty of Instrumentation Engineering of the National Technical University of Ukraine “Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute” was founded in 1962 on the base of gyroscope instruments and devices, and instruments of fine mechanics of KPI.
The Faculty trains specialists of design and maintenance of modern instruments and systems of different purposes, such as measuring equipment of onboard complexes, diagnostic complexes of medical and general welfare purposes, and monitoring devices of energy saving systems. Specialists gain deep knowledge and skills of using modern methods of making highly-precise instruments with the help of microprocessor- and computer technology, systems of computer-assisted design and computer graphics.
The graduates work at instrument design enterprises of air and space profile, enterprises of energy saving technologies implementation; enterprises of designing and implementation of modern medical and diagnostic, training and treatment complexes; and also, at transport and printing enterprises.
Instruments designed at the Faculty of Instrumentation Engineering are used in many spheres of human activity, especially in aerospace and shipbuilding industry, automobile manufacturing, and oil and gas industry. They are also used in railway service, robotics, engineering surveying, gravimetric measurements, bathyscaph design and boatbuilding industry, household sphere etc. These instruments are inertial raw data transducers and inertial systems designed on their base, instruments and measuring control systems of different physical measures (pressure, temperature, time, expenditures and sizes in instrument design), instruments and systems of infrared and night viewing, electro-optical transducers of angular and linear displacement, instruments and systems for analysis of elements in liquids and gas environments etc.
Raw data transducers and systems on their base are created and produced in the countries with highly-developed intellectual potential. Instrument design is a domain of developed high technologies the existence of which determines the intellectual potential of a country.
