Education and Research Institute of Computer Physics and Energy
The Education and Research Institute of Computer Physics and Energy is the first Ukrainian institution of double subordination — under the Ministry of Education and Science and the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. With its existence, the Institute implements the idea of a deep interaction between academic science and higher education. The creation of such an institution was the imperative of our time and was dictated by economic and energy challenges facing Ukraine.
The history of the Education and Research Institute started on July 12, 2001, when by a joint decree of the Ministry of Education and Science and the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, the School of Physics and Energy was created at V. N. Karazin Kharkiv National University. The time of its creation and modern nature of the tasks to be solved by the School make it "the School of the third millennium".
On November 1, 2019, the School of Physics and Energy was reorganized into the Education and Research Institute of Computer Physics and Energy.
The faculty of the Institute together with undergraduate and postgraduate students are engaged in intensive research. The results of fundamental studies are regularly published in leading national and international journals, such as Physical Review Letters and Physical Review. Applied studies of the Institute staff are widely used in practice. The study "Improving Energy Efficiency of Turbines of TPS and TPP Through Modernization, Reconstruction and Improvement of Their Operation Modes", authored in particular by the Institute staff, Academician of the NAS of Ukraine Yu. M. Matsevityi and Professor V. V. Solovei, was awarded the State Prize of Ukraine.
Senior students are taught general and specialized subjects by leading scientists, who work at the forefront of contemporary fundamental and applied science. The content of specialized courses is being regularly updated in order to meet the requirements of numerous potential employers, representatives of enterprises and scientific institutions.
The Education and Research Institute of Computer Physics and Energy offers a full-time education. The duration of study is 6 years.
The Institute prepares specialists in traditional and new technologies for obtaining, transforming, and using energy with a major in Applied Physics. The Institute offers the following specializations: Information Technologies in Energy, Alternative Energy Sources and Thermal Physics.
The Education and Research Institute of Computer Physics and Energy has four departments:
Department of Information Technologies in Physical Energy Systems. It focuses on development and improvement of control systems in energy complexes, mathematical and computer modeling of energy conversion processes and operation of energy systems, data processing in energy.
Department of Computer Physics. The Department provides theoretical knowledge and practical skills of work with the use of modern computer technologies, studies complex physical, technical, energy, medical, and ecological systems.
Department of Physics of Alternative Energy Technologies and Ecology. The activity is focused on physics of non-traditional (alternative and renewable) energy sources, virtual and full-scale development and creation of the newest materials of non-traditional energy, research on introducing resource-saving technologies and environmental protection.
Department of Thermal Physics, Molecular Physics and Energy Efficiency. The activity is focused on studying thermophysical and molecular bases of conversion of traditional and renewable types of energy, energy efficiency and energy saving.
Employment of Graduates
The Institute’s graduates are highly qualified specialists in physical, chemical, and mathematical basics of modeling of energy conversion processes and complex power systems, as well as in the field of computer control of energy complexes and high-tech equipment.
