Today Ukrainian Engineering and Pedagogical Academy comprises more than 10 thousand students who study at 6 faculties of the Academy. Departments of the Academy provide training of students on the humanities, fundamental, general engineering and special disciplines. The Academy consists of:

1. Educational Scientific Professional Pedagogics Institute situated in Artemovsk and Slavyansk cities;

2. Stakhanov Educational Scientific Institute of Mining and Educational technologies situated.

Educational system in the Academy carries out continuous multilevel training on educational and qualifying levels: Bachelor – Specialist – Master.

Students of full and part time departments in the Academy have the possibility to receive the second specialty, and also a working profession. The system of scientific pedagogical personnel’s training which includes doctoral candidacy and postgraduate course operates effectively.

In the Academy there are scientific students’ organizations and circles of amateur performance which give the chance to realize hobbies and widen the scope of interests. Sports is an inseparable part of student’s life.

Students who arrived for studies from different regions of Ukraine, as well as foreign students live in 3 hostels.

In Ukrainian Engineering and Pedagogical Academy there are all conditions for development of scientific schools in the field of pedagogics and engineering psychology, there are also 4 specialized academic councils on defence of Ph.Dtheses. There is functioning center of training of the international teachers-engineers, the scientific and methodical center of engineering pedagogical education.

The library of the Academy has one of the largest in Kharkov funds of educational, educational and methodical, scientific and fiction literature (more than 900 thousand copies). There are 3 reading rooms in the library, 2 of which are situated in students’ hostels.

For the years of its existence Ukrainian Engineering and Pedagogical Academy prepared more than 70 thousand of specialists working in Ukraine, CIS countries and other foreign countries. Graduates of the Academy at different times held executive posts, among them there were 2 ministers, 2 deputy ministers, about 3000 directors, leading specialists of industrial and scientific institutions, heads of educational institutions, public figures.

In 2000 the licensed Center of Training of Foreign Citizens started its work. The Center includes preparatory office which carries out foreign school leavers’ training. During one academic year (2 semester of training) students along with studying the Ukrainian (Russian) language, receive necessary knowledge of mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology and other fundamental sciences.

The Academy maintains numerous international relations in the field of training of engineering pedagogical personnel. The European Monitoring Committee of the International Organization of Engineering Pedagogics (IGIP) was created on the basis of the Academy. It provides the Academy with the opportunity to prepare European teachers. Nowadays more than 80 scientists of leading engineering educational establishments of Ukraine already received a title «ING-PAED IGIP».

Ukrainian Engineering Pedagogics Academy is one of founders of the Regional Center of Modular Principle of Working Professions’ Training on the International Labour Organization’s system (Geneva).

In the postwar years the country sharply faced a problem of engineering personnel training for revival of the destroyed industry. For providing the national economy with highly-skilled personnel and rational use of labor force educational institutions of part-time department are more often used in the country.

On the basis on the Order of the Minister of the Higher and Secondary Education of USSR from February 21, 1958 No. 78, according to the decision of Council of Ministers of USSR from January 24, 1958 No. 62 Ukrainian Correspondence Polytechnical Institute (further – UCPI) was created in Kharkov.
