About the Institute

Institute of firefighting and indistrial safety

  One of the main tasks of the Institute of firefighting and industrial safety is to teach a man how to deepen their knowledge as well as acquire new knowledge in the course of their life’s activity. Due to cross-functional training, our graduates rank high among junior specialists in the domain of civil protection, who start to work for the State Emergency Service of Ukraine on a yearly basis.

    The institute graduates are ready to carry out urgent tasks of emergency containment and organizing essential services for the disaster-affected region as well as solving organizational, technical, engineering tasks of providing fire safety, assessing the level of fire hazard of technological processes by means of calculating methods, designing engineering solutions for the protection of equipment, constructions and buildings, carrying out design estimates and monitoring the implementation of the rules of fire and technological safety.

   The institute consists of eight departments: The department of law and management in the field of civil protection, Special Rescue Training and Physical Education Department, Department of Electrical Engineering, Industrial and Fire Automation, Fire department tactics and rescue operations, Department of Monitoring and Prevention activities, Department of burning processes and General Chemistry, Department of Fire and Rescue Equipment and Department of Thermodynamics and Physics.

The seminars demonstrate the results of scientific and research works as well as theses on different topics conducted by the staff, such as:

·         Ways of increasing concrete resistance to high temperature.

·         Increasing fire resistance of iron constructions by means of coverings based on silicon-element-organic composites.

·        Research of flexible rescue systems for rescuing people from heights in the event of fire.

·        Research of fire breakouts caused by specific modes of power circuits and developing recommendations for their prevention.

·         Designing and research of fire alarm properties.

·         Autonomous sources of power in fire safety automated.

·         Designing methods of conducting rescue operations by smoke-and-fire servicemen in confined areas.

·         Increasing fire resistance of barring constructions by means of implementing vermiculite-and-silicon tiles.

·         Research of combustion gas toxicity. 

·         Development of statutory and regulatory coverage in the domain of fire safety and civil protection.

The agenda of the scientific seminar of the Institute of firefighting and technological safety.

Institute houses various sections that aim their work at the development of creative skills of their disciples as well as increasing their level of executive qualities. Dance groups, glees, choirs and vocal-instrumental ensembles that take part in concerts in Ukraine as well as abroad play significant role in the cultural and entertainment aspect of university life. Therefore, cadets take active part in amateur plays, concerts and various cultural and entertainment events that take place at the university and outside of it. It is worth mentioning that the cadets of the institute have been taking the prize in annual amateur plays for six years now. 


By joint efforts of the staff and the disciples, a stress-free environment has been created in the institute, where any cadet or student if free to demonstrate their talent without having to fear the authority of the officers or lecturers.

It goes without saying that the sport and entertainment work is not ignored, as it is one of the main factors of of identity formation and development. Cadets visit various sections of fire-applied sports, triathlon for officers, sambo, boxing, shooting military weapons, cross country running, football, basketball, volleyball, table tennis, martial hopak, powerlifting and weightlifting. Our cadets have taken quite a few prizes in both national and international competitions. To name a few of them: sixth year cadet A.V.

Shynkaruk – champion and prize-winner of the Kickboxing Championship of Ukraine.  


The institute promotes and encourages talented and purposeful cadets and students. All-A disciples receive exhibitions. Moreover, winners of competitions, student olympiads, authors of the best scientific works and participant of all-Ukrainian and international conferences receive bonuses. The best cadets traditionally have traineeships in Krakow school of postgraduates (The Republic of Poland) or take part in various international projects in the domain of life safety
