Lutsk National Technical University is a Ukrainian university in Lutsk at the IV accreditation level.
Lutsk NTU was founded in 1966 by Nikolai Romanyuk, a former director of the Lutsk Automobile Plant, and Yevgen Petrovich Verizhenko, the rector of Kadi. The opening of the university followed the opening of the Department of General Technical Faculty of the Kiev Automobile and Road Institute. 105 students were enrolled in the school's first class.
The head was D.K. Konovalyuk. On November 1, 1968, the department was transformed into Lutsk General Technical Faculty, which in turn became the Lviv General Institute in July 1971. The department trained students in machine development and construction and over time, was reorganized into a Lutsk branch of the Lviv Polytechnic Institute.
The new branch included six departments that worked to train engineers and technical personnel in 12 specialties. The first director was I.M. Khorolsky.
In 1976, the university began to offer graduate training on a full-time and correspondence basis for engineers in the following areas:
The Technology of Mechanical Engineering
Metal Cutting Machines and Tools
Industrial and Civil EngineeringIn 1978, the university opened the Department of Mechanical Engineering. With this expansion came growth in the teaching and research staff, new training and laboratory buildings, a dormitory, a canteen, and a sports and recreation facility.
On July 16, 1990, the Verkhovna Rada (Parliament) of Ukraine adopted the Declaration on State Sovereignty of Ukraine and on August 24, 1991, Ukraine proclaimed itself an independent, democratic state. This change led to radical transformations in education, one of which was in the training of technical specialists like engineers. These changes resulted in the formation of the Lutsk Industrial Institute on April 1, 1991 from what was formerly the Lutsk branch of the Lviv Polytechnic Institute.
The Lutsk Industrial Institute comprised 21 departments dedicated to providing students with technical education. In 1991, the Institute began offering a postgraduate program.
Since 1995, the Institute offers degrees at the Bachelor, Specialist and Master levels in technology and economics.
