The Department of Foundry Production is a structural subdivision Institute of Materials Science and Welding named after Ye. O. Paton, the department carries out educational, methodical and scientific activities in the specialty 136 - Metallurgy.

Secrets of manufacturing and processing of metals – one of the most ancient professions that mankind has mastered at all times. Now the metal is used to make a variety of goods, devices and equipment – from paper clips and forks to cars and rockets. Metal production is the industry that provides the largest percentage of foreign exchange earnings in Ukraine and needs specialists in this field.

The department trains specialists in the development of new materials, science-intensive technologies for their production, determining the properties of materials and assessing the quality of finished products, automation of technological processes using modern computer tools and information technology.

During the study, students will gain fundamental knowledge in the field of metallurgy based on modern digital and computer technologies. We train high-level professionals and provide all opportunities for further successful career growth in modern enterprises, international and Ukrainian companies, where the acquired knowledge and skills are highly valued by employers. Graduates implement automated and computerized production facilities based on modern digital and computer technologies and design a variety of technologies in the metallurgical, aircraft, engineering industries, work as consultants on engineering issues in the industry.

Students "construct" their own content through active learning by engaging in the choice of what to study, and also have the opportunity to continue their master's degree in Germany with a double degree program at the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg.

Staff of the department have the theoretical foundations of student-centric studing and create an innovative educational environment in which the studing process is a process of qualitative transformation of students' studing environment, which aims at the ability to think critically based on a result-based approach. problems, developing students' independence and increasing their responsibility for their own studing outcomes.

At the department there is an opportunity to be engaged in scientific researches within the limits of the created scientific groups in the following directions: metal materials; theory and technology of foundry mold; functional materials and products.
