Kiev Military Aviation Engineering Academy (Ukrainian: Київське вище військове авіаційне інженерне училище, КВВАІУ)[1] is one of the leading military educational university-level institutions and research centers of the Soviet Union on the preparation of highly qualified engineers of various specialties for the Air Force. After the breakdown of the Soviet Union - the main and the only military school in Ukraine, was preparing all kinds of engineering and logistics officers for the Ukrainian Air Force.

All educational programs had five-year duration and graduates were granted a qualification and a degree of military engineers (corresponding to the western level from Bachelor to Master of Engineering). Same educational programs were used at the Zhukovsky Air Force Engineering Academy.

History[edit]

The academy had a very high reputation; competition for admission was 15 applicants per place. It had academic councils which were awarding Doktor nauk and Candidate of Sciences (Ph.D) degrees.[2]

In addition, the academy had a training airfield near the Kiev Zhuliany Airport. About a dozen planes and helicopters of various types were available there for engineering practice. The flights were not performed. Later, the training airfield was used to establish the Ukraine State Aviation Museum.

On July 3, 2000, the military institution has ceased to exist as such, has been reorganized, the staff and students were relocated to the Air Force University at Kharkiv.
