Department of Wear Resistance and Recovery of Parts is а structual unit of the Institite of Mechanical Engineering. The department trains specialists in the sphere of welding, majoring in "Recovery and improving the wear resistance of parts and constructions” according to three educational levels - Bachelor, Specialist and Master.
License number of students receiving training is 45 people. The staff consists of 12 teachers, including 3 professors, 2 doctors of sciences, 7 associate professors, 6 PhDs, 2 teaching assistants. Head of the department – Yaroslav Kryl, Professor , PhD. The department provides postgraduate study according to the following majors: 05.02.04 - " Friction and Wear in Machines " 05.02.01 - "Material Engineering " and 05.05.12 - "Machinery in Petroleum Industry ."
Department of wear resistance and tool recovery has a total area of 1460 m2. On the territory of the campus there are nine teaching laboratories and a specialized lecture room (with a total area of 830 m2).
Professionals in recovery and improving the wear resistance of parts and constructions receive training in accordance with the latest requirements of modern technology, can use gas-thermal and vacuum techniques of coating for the recovery and wear resistance of the surface of the parts as well as apply methods of surface modification due to changes in the structural state of the surface layers of the material of a detail (amorphization, and creation of metastable nanostructures, etc.) or doping with the use of specific sources of heat and surface treatment equipment (plasma, electron-beam, laser and other technologies). Thus, specialists acquire skills in ensuring performance of parts and assemblies through the control of surface properties of the part (Surface Engineering). Graduates of the leading technical universities in Europe and the U.S. with this major have leading positions in business, production engineering, planning and design, and research centers.
