Departments of the IMZ

Scientific laboratories:

Paton Institute for Materials Science and Welding  was created in the structure of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute in 2020 on the basis of the Faculty of Engineering Physics, the Faculty of Welding and the Department of Laser Engineering and Physical and Technical Technologies, combining scientific schools with more than 80 years of history. Due to such restructuring, the opportunities for the implementation of major strategic scientific and educational projects of the state level of civilization, including the quality of life, have significantly expanded, and the processes of obtaining an innovative competitive product have accelerated. The principles of synergetic strengthening of scientific schools and strengthening of scientific and pedagogical potential of divisions and conditions for self-realization of students, young teachers and scientists were created.

Implementation of modern management methods, including project management, to quickly focus on the challenges of the global market enabled an increase in efficiency and opportunities to update and expand the laboratory base, the competencies of graduates in solving the threefold problem of material - processing - connection.

IMZ prepares specialists in the fields of materials science, metallurgy and welding and related technologies (soldering, cutting, regenerative production, coating, heat treatment, etc.).

Graduates of the institute work as materials scientists, technologists, work - coordinators (for example, welding and / or restorative), 3D-printing engineers, designers of structures and equipment, inspectors and specialists in destructive and non-destructive methods of control, designers of automated systems in governmental and commercial (scientific and industrial) institutions in Ukraine and abroad.
