Ukraine is one of few countries of the world where aviation and space engineering are developed and manufactured and where skilled specialists are trained for these areas. The National Aerospace University Kharkiv Aviation Institute is the leading one among the Ukrainian educational institutions which turn out such specialists.

 The KhAI was founded in 1930. Its history is closely connected with the development of aircraft engineering and science. The University is famous for its creation of the first in Europe high-speed airplane with a retractable landing gear and the creation of the design of the turbojet engine developed by teacher of the KhAI A. M. Liulka who afterwards became the academician and designer of many structures of aircraft engines including the engine of the aircraft Su-27.

       The KhAI is a unique higher educational institution where the airplanes developed by the Institute Design Burean under the supervision of professor I. G. Neman were produced serially at the aircraft plants and run on passenger airlines. 

       From 1977 to 1984 the Designer General O.K. Antonov run the department of airplane structure at the KhAI.

       In 1978 the KhAI was given the name of N. Ye. Zhukovskiy. In 1980 the Institute was awarded with the order of Lenin. In 1998 the N. Ye. Zhukovskiy State Aerospace University “Kharkov Aviation Institute” was founded on the basis of the KhAI and in 2000 the University got a status of the National higher educational institution and got a name of the National Aerospace Uuniversity Kharkiv Aviation Institute.

       During the period of its existence the University has trained about 60 ths engineers. More than 80% of the specialists with higher education who work in Ukrainian aerospace area are the graduates of the KhAI.


       At present about 9.5 ths students and 160 post-graduate students are trained at the University; 650 teachers and 2.5 ths employers work here. Among theme there are 120 Professors and Candidates of Science. Among the teachers of the University there are also: 1 USSR State Lenin Prize winner, 7 USSR State Prize winners, 28 Ukraine State Prize winners, 11 USSR Council of Ministers Prize winners.


       The KhAI is a member of International Association of Universitys; Global Association, Organization of Industry and Airport Technology; it is also in the International Catalogue and belongs to the Association of higher educational institutions of Kharkiv city INTERVUZ, as well as to the Aerospace Agency of Ukraine.


       The KhAI is a co-executor of some programs which are carried out with universities and companies of USA, Japan, Germany, France, Mexico and Chine. The University takes part in the program of creation of “Alfa” international space station. 


       In 1992 the KhAI resumed the training of foreign students over 500 foreign citizens from 40 countries of Asia, Africa and America are trained annually at the University.


       The KhAI covers a separate territory of the city in the forest-part zone, its area amounts to about 25 hectares. The University has 8 academic buildings, research institute and laboratories, library will 1 ml volume in stock, campus, sporty complex, swimming pool, preventurium clinic of first medical aid, dining halls, bank, children garden, etc.




Kharkiv region is the picturesque and favored land, where good, beautiful, talented and hardworking people live. They love their homeland, preserve the history of their ancestors and maintain their heritage. Today Kharkiv region is the leading industrial, agricultural, scientific and cultural region of Ukraine, which cooperates with many countries.

Kharkiv region is the most powerful educational and scientific center of Ukraine. Its potential is measured by the following indicators: 624 preschool educational institutions, 965 secondary ones, 111 out-of-school institutions, 58 vocational ones, 92 higher educational institutions of all levels of accreditation and over 200 scientific institutions. Kharkiv higher education is represented by 14 institutions that have the status of National, where about 292 thousand people study, what is very significant. During recent years scientific base of Kharkiv takes one of the leading places among regions of Ukraine for the scientific development and innovations. Kharkiv scientific schools are world-renowned.

Kharkiv is a city in North Eastern Ukraine; it is the administrative center of Kharkiv region. Kharkiv is the largest scientific, cultural, industrial and transport center of Ukraine.

The combination of potential of higher educational institutions and of research institutions let create appropriate conditions for the development of international education market. Almost all educational and scientific centers of Kharkiv actively cooperate with relevant EU and world institutions; they have many joint scientific and educational projects aimed at the involvement of Ukrainian scientists and specialists into joint research programs, they provide a gradual integration of the Ukrainian education system, while obtaining the standards required, into European system.


Today, when the borders of the countries which are the EU members are very close to Ukraine and the European institutions’ activity applies not only to new countries, but also to new areas of activity, information about the EU is particularly valuable and becomes increasingly important. Creation of the EU Information Center in the student capital of Eastern Ukraine lets understand better the processes of European integration of our state, provides with current and comprehensive information about the EU and its relations with the outside world.
