History[edit]

Kremenchuk Mykhailo Ostrohradskyi National University founded in 1960 as a general technical faculty of the Poltava Institute of Agricultural Construction Engineers.

By 1974 the number of students had increased by 2.5 times, teaching staff had trebled. Kremenchuk GTF was transformed into the Kremenchuk branch of Kharkiv State Polytechnic Institute.[4] The work of the branch was characterised by two distinct periods: from 1974 to 1989 it offered cooperative education by either evening classes or correspondence learning and from 1989 to 1997 it offered full-time studies.

On August 21, 1997 the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine adopted a resolution «The formation of Kremenchuk State Polytechnic Institute»[5] which was based on the Kremenchuk branch of Kharkiv State Polytechnical Institute, Krukiv Machine-building College, and Kremenchuk Automotive College. Professor Maslov V. Ye., who stood at the origins of the institute, was a Merited Education Worker of Ukraine, and Kremenchuk Honored Citizen,[6] was elected to be the first rector. The institute consisted of seven faculties which included seventeen departments. Three years later the institute was reorganized in Kremenchuk State Polytechnic Institute[7] and after another three years it was accredited as third tier higher educational institution – an acknowledgment of its ability to provide an educational process, specialist training and scientific research of the highest standards.[8] During this time, the higher educational institution has provided industrial enterprises based in the city and Dnieper region with highly qualified specialists; creating the technical elite of the region.

In 2001 the university won in the nomination «The University of the Twenty-first Century» and was rewarded the golden medal from European Committee for Non-governmental Organizations. Later in 2001 it became a prize winner of the International Academic Ranking of Popularity and Quality «Golden Fortune» in the nomination «The Quality of the Third Millennium» and got the Certificate and the silver medal. In January 2002 KSPU won the nomination «Education» in the «Top-100 Organisations of Ukraine» ranking.

According to the «Higher Education» Law of Ukraine in November 2002 the election of a new rector took place. Among several candidates the university personnel by a majority of votes elected Mykhaylo Vasylyovych Zagirnyak — Honoured Scientist of Ukraine, Doctor of Sciences, Professor, Holder of the Order of Merit of III degree, Master of Sports.

On April 21, 2006 the State Accreditation Commission reviewed all the submitted documents and expert opinions, taking into account the university's high standards and rapid development, the Kremenchug State Polytechnic University was awarded the accreditation level IV.[9] That was an outstanding achievement not only for Kremenchug State Polytechnic University, but for the whole Poltava region. The university was awarded the new, higher status that allowed students to receive a master's degree under the state demand and on a wide range of professional subjects. Such a big day came not only because of the KSPU team efforts, but due to the work of the whole city; in the past the local authorities and Kremenchuk enterprises had supported the creation of the institution of higher education.

According to the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine order no. 92-p of March 7, 2007 Kremenchuk State Polytechnic University was named after Mykhailo Ostrohradskyi.[10]

In August 2009 our university became the first classical university in Poltava region. Previously having a word «polytechnic» in its name, the university was asserted as industry specific institution of higher education. According to the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine order (no. 910-p of August 5, 2009) it received the status of classical university (Kremenchuk State University named after Mykhailo Ostrohradskyi).[11]
