The department of Physical Metallurgy and Heat Treatment of Metals was founded in 1935 by the group of specialists of the “Illich ” Iron and Steel Works. Presently the department is a powerful scientifically-pedagogical complex, consisting of the educational and scientific laboratories of metallography, physics of metals, electronic microscopy, X-rays, mechanical and physical properties, equipped with up-to-date instruments.
The teaching staff of the department includes 2 doctors of engineering sciences, professors and 5 candidates of engineering sciences, associate professors, three graduate students, skilled employees. For 80 years of its activity the department prepared more than 3.000 specialists including for foreign countries who successfully work at the enterprises of Ukraine and abroad: in Russia, Belarus, Moldova, Canada, Poland, Bulgaria, Germany, in Cuba, China and other countries. During 80 years 64 candidates and 8 doctors of engineering sciences were prepared.
Scientific directions and scientific schools of the department are comprise theory of phase transformations, creation of the new multi-function self-strengthening at exploitation materials, theory and newest technologies, thermal, thermo-mechanical, thermal-chemical treatments.
The scientists of the department published 13 textbooks and teaching aids and monographs, 1320 articles in scientific magazines, 210 patents and copyright certificates on inventions, were granted.
The scientists of the department fulfill hundreds of scientific works, many of that are successfully implemented at many metallurgical and machine-building enterprises of Ukraine, Russia, and were recommended for the implementation in Germany, Egypt, Japan.The department is an initiator and coordinator in Ukraine of international educational project TEMPUS «MMATENG» European Union of modernization of on-line tutorials on material engineering.
