Fundamental research done by the University provides the basis for the development of new strategic lines for scientific and technical progress in advanced and promising industries in Ukraine. The integration of science and education - whereby new academic specialties are continuously opened on the basis of evolving new scientific discoveries and directions – is the basis on which NTU «KhPI» continues to develop.
Cumulative new scientific knowledge thereby becomes the basis for the formation of new specialties supporting the priority requirements of the national economy. During the last ten years seven new faculties and fifteen departments have been created in the University and twenty-five new specialties have been opened.
