The Admiral Makarov National University of Shipbuilding (NUS) is a leading higher educational institution in Ukraine which trains experts for shipbuilding industry and national economy allied industries.
In April 1901 the Ministry of National Education of the Russian Empire was informed about “the highest command” concerning opening in Mykolayiv on July 1, 1902 of average mehaniko-technical school which became base for creation of our University.
On September 18, 1920 in Mykolayiv industrial technical school began its studies, the structure of that included such branches: shipbuilding, mechanical, electro technical and road building. The Mykolayiv industrial technical school had the status of a higher educational institution, and the qualification of the engineer was appropriated to its graduating students. The study course in technical school was carried out during 3 years.
The Mykolayiv industrial technical school with all its institutions, that were at it (work department, professional technical school of teen workers) located in its own buildings that had address: Kuznechnaia street, 3 (now it's Skorohodova, 5).
In 1926-1927 educational year the industrial technical school will be reorganized in shipbuilding technical school with increase in term of study from three to full four years. During this period it had been created and equipped with laboratories of resistance of materials, chemistry, heat engineering.
In 1929 the Mykolayiv shipbuilding technical school was united with the Mykolayiv evening working technical school. This institution received the name of the Mykolayiv machine-building institute. However in 1930 after association with shipbuilding department of the Odessa polytechnic institute it was renamed the Mykolayiv Shipbuilding Institute (MSI).
Since 1941 MSI has trained over 1700 experts of engineering qualification who worked in shipbuilding and other branches of a national economy.
At the beginning of the Great Patriotic War, the MSI have employed 94 teachers and have trained almost 700 students. About 500 students, teachers and employees of the institute, have been called in numbers of Red Army and have gone to the front; the others have been directed to the building of defensive constructions and harvesting. Institute evacuation has begun. At first MSI has opened in Stalingrade, then in Astrakhan and later has made a decision to open institute in Przhevalsk in the Kirghiz Soviet Socialist Republic. In military years at institute worked 22 department, has been let out over 370 young experts. On 30 June 1944 is made the decision about a returning the institute to a native city and on 1 October 1944 in Mykolayiv have begun studies in the MSI. And in 1945 began basic works of five year's plan of restoration and institute development. For this was allocated 36,5 million of khrb. At that time that was a big sum. Till the end of 1947 the main buildings of the institute have been renewed.
By decision of the government of the USSR in 1949 MSI had been appropriated a name of an admiral Makarov – the native of Mykolayiv, the known scientific shipbuilder, an admiral-naval commander.
In 1946 at the institute was created postgraduate study on the basis of leading departments from specialities: a design of the case of the ship; technology of a vessel construction; ship steam turbines; ship steam coppers; ship internal combustion engines. In 1946 – 1950 the institute establishes scientific relationships with many advanced scientific institutions of the country. The subjects of scientific researches extended Every year. In 1955 the majority of teachers (over 80%) took part in research work of institute. On 18 September 1970 in day of fifty years anniversary by the Decree of Presidium of the Supreme Rada of USSR Admiral Makarov MSI has been awarded the order of the Labour Red Flag for the merits in preparation of engineering workers and for tne achievements in development of scientific researches.
On 17 May 1971 in front of the Victory park took place a solemn opening of a new institute building. This day have begun excavations for a construction of a 13-storeyed building of a student's hostel for 1295 places.
In 1971 at the institute took place the first graduation of engineers-economists. The state examination committee has appropriated qualification of the engineer-economist to 50 graduates of the institute.
In 1994 by decision of the Cabinet of Ministers council of Ukraine Admiral Makarov National Shipbuilding University has received the highest (fourth) level of accreditation, the status of University and the name – “the Ukrainian State Sea Technical University”.
The University has possibility to create in its structure new educational institutions, scientific institutions of different types, independently to plan and develop search and basic researches. At the University has been selected on a democratic basis the rector – a Doctor of Technology, professor Ryzhkov Sergii Sergiiovych.
