The development of process-related welding led to the creation of a new engineering specialty associated with the processes of gas-thermal coating, which eventually transformed into the training of specialists in surface engineering.
The development of process-related welding led to the creation of a new engineering specialty assoThe training of specialists in this profile began in 1989 at the department of welding production of the welding department of NTUU "KPI" at the initiative of the dean of the welding faculty of the assistant professor, candidate of technical sciences А.М. Slyvinsky.
From June 2016 the Department of Surface Engineering is headed by Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Igor Volodymyrovych Smirnov. Scientific research in the field of nanotechnology in surface engineering is actively being conducted.
Now the department is run by doctors of technical sciences, professors V.I. Kopylov, IV Smirnov, VM Pashchenko, Candidates of Engineering, associate professor Yu.S. Popil, AV Chorny, D.V. Stepanov, Head. laboratories KA Barantsev, engineer KO Spirin.
