The training of energy engineers of agricultural production at the Faculty of Agricultural Mechanization of the Podilsk Agricultural and Technical Academy began in 1998.
On August 27, 2002, the "Energy of Agricultural Production" department was established on the basis of the "Physics and Electrification of Agriculture" department (head of the Faculty of Science, Associate Professor Mykola Chirkin). In 2008, the department was renamed to the department of energy and electrotechnical systems in the agricultural industry (the head of the department is Ph.D., associate professor Ihor Garasymchuk). In 2019, the department was reorganized into the department of "Electrical engineering, electromechanics and electrotechnologies".
The department trains bachelors, masters and candidates of sciences (doctors of philosophy).
Full-time and extramural forms of education.
On the basis of secondary education - admission to the 1st year of full-time and part-time education.
Based on the qualification of a junior specialist, admission to the 2nd year of full-time and 3rd year of correspondence forms of education is based on the results of exams.
Upon obtaining a second higher education - admission to the 2-3 course of correspondence education.
The scientific potential of the department is focused on research and determination of ways to increase the efficiency of energy supply, energy consumption and energy saving at enterprises of the agro-industrial complex. The department has 7 educational laboratories
The department has a high scientific potential - a professor, 6 candidates of sciences, 5 associate professors. During the entire period of study, students, together with teachers, are engaged in scientific developments, perform real technical projects, the results of which are published in scientific papers. This allows you to gain practical skills and demonstrate your capabilities to potential employers.
Main directions of scientific work
- research, modeling and optimization of power supply systems of agricultural enterprises;
- reduction of energy consumption and automation of livestock and poultry production;
- development of methods and electronic systems of electromagnetic technology for treating animals and destroying pests;
- development of technological process parameter control systems;
- development and research of alternative energy supply systems.
Practical training of students takes place according to the end-to-end program of practical training.
Educational practices of students are conducted in educational workshops, laboratories and branches of the department, where there are necessary conditions for its implementation.
Every year, students undergo industrial practice at energy-related enterprises. The department has agreements with leading enterprises and organizations of the Khmelnytskyi region and the city of Kamianets-Podilskyi on internships. The department regularly conducts tours and field trips to enterprises to get acquainted with production, equipment and potential employers. Our students have the opportunity to undergo practice and work at the enterprises of well-known companies with which contracts have been concluded.
The best students of the department undergo practical training abroad in different countries of the world.
The department provides services to the population, organizations and enterprises for conducting electrotechnical measurements in electrical installations and electrical equipment up to 1000 V when carrying out work to ensure the protection of life and health of citizens, control of the safety of working conditions.
The teaching staff of the department constantly cooperates with students in scientific, cultural and spiritual aspects. Educational activities (conversations, curatorial hours, thematic lectures), organization and holding of traditional holidays, establishment of own traditions are far from a complete arsenal of tools that are an integral part of the educational and educational process of the department. The preparation, organization and holding of cathedral-wide holidays contributes to the formation of cathedral traditions, conditions are created for the full disclosure of students' creative abilities and talent.
The department actively cooperates with the best scientific schools of prominent scientists and industrialists and the largest agricultural universities of Ukraine: National University of Bioresources and Nature Management, Lviv National Agrarian University, Kharkiv National Technical University of Agriculture named after P.Vasilenka, etc. Students and teachers take part in joint projects in the field of development of new electrical technologies and energy saving in the agro-industrial complex. Projects are accompanied by internships for students and teachers in partner organizations in Ukraine and abroad.
The department also has scientific connections and an agreement on student exchange with foreign organizations and universities.
