Research Schools

Our most successful research projects resulted in foundation of Research schools, each with its own rich history and outstanding theoretical and practical developments. Today they act as research societies uniting students and prominent scientists for better understanding of welding and related processes, experience transfer to young people and creation of up-to-date technologies and equipment.

There are three Research Schools operating within Welding Faculty of NTUU "KPI":
