Welcome to the leading higher educational institution of the central region of Ukraine – National University «Yuri Kondratyuk Poltava Polytechnic».
EDUCATIONAL–SCIENTIFIC INSTITUTE OF ARCHITECTURE AND CONSTRUCTION was established in 2018 due to the unification of the pedagogical and scientific potential of the Construction and Architecture Faculties. From the moment of its foundation the Institute is headed by Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor, State Prize laureate in the field of science and technology O.V. Semko.
The Construction faculty existed since the foundation of our educational institution (1930) and at one time became the source for its creation. Its founders were V.O. Brodetskii, K.V. Chuprunenko In the following years the faculty was headed by: O.N. Mogilat, M.T. Andreiko, S.F. Pichugin, A.S. Vykhodtsev, P.G. Gorbenko, Yu.I. Velykodnii, O.A. Shkurupii, O.A. Kharchenko, L.G. Shcherbinin, V.F. Pents, M.P. Nesterenko The history of the Construction faculty is inextricably linked with the names of prominent scientists who worked at the faculty in different years: M.S. Torianik, D.M. Topchii, E.V. Platonov and others. Scientific schools on building constructions and structural mechanics have been founded by such scholars as M.S. Torianik, Ye.V. Platonov, P.F. Vakhnenko, L.V. Faleev, I.S. Dotsenko, P.M. Nevsky and others.
The Faculty of Architecture has more than 50 years of experience in the training of specialist architects. The beginning of its formation is 1966, when the architectural specialty was opened at the Faculty of Industrial and Civil Engineering. Its founder was O.N. Mogylat In 1971, the first issue of architects in the specialty "Architecture", specialization "Urban Development" took place. The formation and development of the Faculty of Architecture took place gradually and naturally through its periodic restructuring. The result of the structural reorganization of the faculty was the isolation of several graduating departments, whose activities are related to the profile training of architects of different specialties. A significant number of graduates of the Faculty of Architecture are executives or chief architects of design organizations, design bureaus, small design companies and private architectural workshops. Graduates of the faculty also hold positions of district architects of Poltava and other regions of Ukraine. Many graduates of the faculty devoted themselves to scientific and pedagogical work, became candidates and doctors of sciences. The history of the Architectural faculty is inextricably linked with the names of prominent scientists who worked at the faculty in different years: L.S. Weingort, P.P. Kazakov, K.V. Gladysh, O.A. Shumilin, M.I. Kalinin, V.O. Tregubov, V.M. Lyakh, G.A. Negai and others.

During the years of existence of the faculties, more than 20 thousand engineers-builders and architects, more than 300 candidates and doctors of sciences, over 200 specialists of different levels for foreign countries were trained. All specialties of the institute are licensed and accredited at the highest level ІV. About 100 teachers work at the departments of the educational-scientific institute, including 11 doctors of sciences, professors and more than 80 candidates of sciences. The Institute successfully operates research laboratories, there are three scientific schools.
Graduates of the Institute of speciality 191 work in design, engineering, research organizations, architectural and specialized architectural organizations, in urban planning and architecture departments with state authorities of all levels (city, district, region), architectural workshops, design studios and firms different forms of ownership.
Graduates of the Institute of specialties 192, 193 work in design, research organizations, construction and specialized construction organizations, in the enterprises of the construction industry and in firms of various forms of ownership, enterprises, organizations and institutions of land management and geodesic profile of various forms of ownership, design and research institutes and others like that.
Graduates of the specialty 023 work in design organizations of the artistic profile, creative workshops of easel painting, artistic ceramics, in the collections of artistic, ethnographic and ethnographic museums; secondary, special and higher educational establishments, art studios, academic and branch research institutions.
Many graduates work as teachers of higher educational establishments, colleges, technical schools and vocational schools. Among them there are candidates and doctors of science, associate professors, professors, correspondent members of the academies of sciences, academicians.
The institute has a specialized academic council for the protection of doctoral and master's theses in the specialties 05.23.01 «Building constructions, buildings and structures», 05.23.02 «Bases and foundations».
Scientific-research laboratories of constructions departments of metal, wood and plastics structures, reinforced concrete and stone structures and materials resistance are functioning successfully at the educational-scientific institute; technologies of building constructions, products and materials; organization and technology of construction and labor protection; "Creative Workshop" of the Department of Fundamentals of Architecture; "Center of Contemporary Art PoltNTU" Department of Fine Arts - a comprehensive research site for scientific and creative development.
Scientific schools are headed by leading scientists who are known not only in Ukraine but also far beyond its borders. The following scientific schools operate at the Institute: research and implementation in the construction of steel reinforced concrete structures - Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Storozhenko L.I .; reliability of building structures - Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Pichugin S.F.; Research of reinforced concrete structures on complex types of loads - Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Pavlikov A.M. Research on other scientific areas is also actively conducted: reliability and risks of complex constructions - Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Semko O.V.; technologies and durability of building structures, products and materials – R.M.
