Address: Pershotravneva Str., 20. 39600, Kremenchuk, Poltava region

    The development and establishment of the department of “Vital Activ-ity Safety” took place in parallel with the development of Mykhaylo Ostro-gradskiy State University of Kremenchuk. The first educational institution of higher learning in Kremenchuk was founded in 1960 as a Technical Faculty of Poltava Civil Engineering Institute.
    In May, 1972, this department was handed over the Kharkiv Road Institute, and in August, 1974, it was reorganized into Kremenchuk Branch of Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute (KB KhPI).
At the same time at the Institute it was started the teaching of discipline the «Labour Protection».
    The first teacher of this discipline was Associate Professor of the «Mechanical Engineering» department - Leonid Ivanovych Pyrogov, and from September, 1976, this discipline has been hand over to Associate Professor of the «Engineering Design» - Vladislav Oleksiyovych Glyavin, who has had significant scientific and practical experience in this direction, because previously he worked as the head of the department of labour protectionof at the Research Institute “The Salt” in Artemivsk.
     With the growth of the institution the workload and the number of teachers of this discipline was growing. Thus, since 1985 the course "La-bour Protection" began to teach Associate Professor Chebenko Valeriy Mykolayovych.
    Since 1989, Kremenchuk Branch of the Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute was entering a new phase of its development that marked a qualitatively different phenomenon for Kremenchuk and its region - the training of full-time education specialists. And this time three new faculties were estab-lished: automotive, electromechanical and engineering instead of evening and correspondence faculties. A little later two new faculty were opened: economic and management.
    It caused the necessity to increase the quantity of teachers of the dis-cipline of “Labour Protection” to four ones. In 1995 by the Order of the rector of Institute, prof. Maslov V.Ye. the discipline "Labour Protection" was assigned to the Department of Ecology. In 1997 on the basis of Kremenchuk branch of the Kharkiv State Polytechnic Institute, Kryukiv engineering technical and Kremenchuk
    Automotive technical schools was created Kremenchuk State Poly-technic Institute, which became the legal successor of the branch. This increases greatly the demands on the quality of the educational process.
    By the Order of MES of Ukraine ¹ 182/200 from 20.06.1995 it has been introduced in the curricula of the new discipline - "Vital Activity Safety" and "Civil Defence". In August, 2000, on the basis of Kremenchuk Poly-technic Institute was established Kremenchuk State Polytechnic University. In the same year in the curriculum was introduced a new discipline - "La-bour protection in the industry".
    Thus, for the period until 2000 the University was established series of courses which are directed to humanize a higher education. It consists of:
    1. "Vital Activity Safety”.
    2. "Fundamentals of occupational safety”.
    3. "Labour protection in the industry."
    4. "Civil Defence".
    The staff of the department consists of 11 employees.
    Department of "Vital Activity Safety” provides the organization and conduct of the educational process on this cycle of disciplines (lectures, practical and laboratory classes, diploma project section "Labour Protec-tion") at the respective faculties of the university according to the curriculum with specific skills and specializations, with a current staff of nine teachers, among them - one doctor of technical sciences, two candidates of technical sciences.
    To increase the effectiveness of the educational process in 2000 by rector’s order it was established the department of "Vital Activity Safety and drawing”, and since November 2003 it was established a separate depart-ment “Vital Activity Safety”.
    The department is headed by Professor Glyavin V.A., and since De-cember 2003 by the decision of the Scientific Council was elected Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Andrusenko Alexander as a chair of the department.
The department provides the organization and conduct of the educa-tional process on the cycle of disciplines – “Vital Activity Safety”, “Fundamentals of occupational safety”, “Labour protection in the industry”, “Civil Defence” at the relevant university faculties, respectively curriculum with specific skills and specializations.
    Department ensures the fulfillment of the:
    - Training Program to improve the level of proficiency of the research and educational personnel through the training of doctors and candidates
of technical sciences;
    - Postgraduate programs through various forms of training scientific-pedagogical personnel and personnel of various Kremenchuk’s enterprises in the Training Center for Occupational Safety and Ecology;
    - Programs of the methodological, organizational and scientific, informa-tional and material support of educational process on the cycle of depart-ment’s disciplines;
    - Scientific researches in the areas of vital activity security and work safety on basis of state budget and the contract agreement funding.

Physics Department is a common educational chair, which serve faculties of engineering and natural sciences of the university.

Number of specialties increasing, lecture hours of teaching physics shortening, passing to module control induce Physics Department to create own manuals, which have been adapted to teaching programs and evoke interest in physics as basis for natural sciences, engineering knowledge and production activity of humanity.

Such works deserve an attention as manual in physics for non-engineering specialties "Physics for Ecologists" (by Yelizarov OI), which obtained a stamp of Ministry of Education, "Book of Physical Problems" (by Cherepanov VP, Motriy NI, Sukachov OV, Yelizarov MO, Jurav VV), "Vector algebra and its applications in physics" (by Scobel VI) etc.
Evidence basis of physics founded first of all on experimental results, therefore lecture demonstrations have be inalienable integral part of teaching physics. Such demonstrations make any phenomenon more comprehensible, than when it is verbal describing, further best assimilation and understanding. That is why Physics Department carry out special days of lecture demonstrations, four in year. Thematically they spread all over the course of physics: "Mechanics", "Molecular physics and thermodynamics", "Electricity and magnetism", "Optics and atomic physics". Students prepare experiments for demonstrations before large audience under the teacher's guidance by themselves. Several students are envolved in each experiment's modeling and exposing as well. The lecture demonstration days is a creative and enthusiastic event, which makes the students willing for their further scientific work from the very beginning of their studying.


At last recent years scientific researches of the Physics Department's staff mostly concern to the physics chemistry and biotechnology fields and has an inclination to the ecology.
Main research directions:
- investigation of self-structuring of biology active liquids in process of its dehydratation (prof. Yelizarov OI, Yeremenko AV);
- investigation of dimensional effect of electrolytic conductivity of soils and chemography visulization of corrosion processes (prof. Yelizarov OI, Jurav VV);
- investigation of physical aspects of conversion cyanobacteria in biogas (prof. Yelizarov OI, Yelizarov MO, Lysenko OI);
- investigation of pollution of city environment by acoustic noises (Polishchuk VS).
Among other important achievments the obtain of the conditions which define the process of energy transformation from uncontrolled status to determinate form is. Also Dniper' waters improvement project via using cyanobacteria, providing biogas and organic fertilizers, was worked out.
