Kharkiv Aerospase University

The Kharkov aviation institute was founded in 1930 and originally it had two faculties – aircraft construction and engine building.

At the first time there were 12 teachers and 69 students. In 1932 flew up the first Europe’s passenger plane with the retractable landing gear KhAI-1, developed by teachers and students of KhAI.

In 1935 the teacher of institute A.M. Lyulka designed the first domestic turbojet engine.

In 1953 in KhAI began works on creation of jet torches for drilling of strong breeds, constructed the wind tunnel.

Due to the development of rocketry techniques begun the preparation of specialists on its design and production, opened the radio engineering faculty.

In 1978 for outstanding achievements in area of training of highly qualified specialists and in scientific researches the institute was named after the founder of modern aerodynamics and hydromechanics Nikolay Zhukovsky.

In 1980 KhAI was awarded by the Order of Lenin.

In 1992 KhAI began training of foreign citizens.

In August, 1998 on the basis of the Kharkov aviation institute was created the National Aerospace University named after N. E.Zhukovsky.

On September 11, 2000 KhAI was given the status of “national” and a name of “National Space University named after N.E.Zhukovsky “The Kharkov aviation institute”.

For years of the existence, KhAI –Kharkiv National Aerospace University prepared more than 53 thousand engineers. Among experts with the higher education, working in aerospace branch of Ukraine, 80% of graduates are from KhAI.

The National Aerospace University is the collaborator of the International space program “the Alpha”, and also scientific projects with firms of the USA, Japan, Germany, Mexico, the Netherlands, China.

The university is proud of achievements of the scientists in the field of supersonic aerodynamics, durability of aviation designs, designing of aviation and rocket engines, control systems of aircraft and many others.
