The National Technical University “Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute” in the city of Kharkiv, is the largest and oldest technical university in eastern Ukraine. Founded in 1885, it is the second-oldest technical university in the former Russian Empire (after Saint Petersburg State Institute of Technology) and in the territory of modern Ukraine.
National Technical University «Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute» is renowned for its high reputation in the field of education and research. A wide variety of curricula and a high level of education attract an increasing number of school leavers. The University holds key positions among the institutions of higher education in Ukraine and worldwide, therefore the diploma of NTU «KhPI» has a high rating and is recognized worldwide.
The university was established according to the program for technical education in the Russian Empire set up by Dmitry Mendeleev as a Practical Technological Institute, with two departments (mechanical and chemical) which could offer training to 125 students. The organizer and first rector of the institute were Viktor Kyrpychov, an honored professor specializing in mechanics and resistance in materials. In 1898, the institute was renamed the Emperor Alexander III Technological Institute. After the October Revolution in 1917, the Technological Institute continued its work. In 1921 the institute set up the first department for workers in Ukraine, and in 1923 (at the request of students, teachers, and employees) the institute was renamed for Vladimir Lenin. In 1929 the V.I. Lenin institute of Technology was renamed the Kharkiv V.I. Lenin Polytechnic Institute (KhPI), a name kept until the fall of the Soviet Union.
In 1930, five independent higher-educational institutions (for mechanical machine engineering, electrical technology, chemical technology, engineering and construction, and aviation) were set up as five separate departments of the institute. KhPI, as a whole, temporarily ceased to exist after that but historians consider these five institutions as informal branches sharing a common history. During World War II over 3,000 professors, students, and institute employees joined the Army. Evacuated to Krasnoufimsk and Chirchiq, the institute continued training engineering staff; it also solved serious scientific problems related to strengthening national defense (such as contributing to tank-design work spearheaded by Alexander Morozov, one of the key engineers in T-34 design).
After the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, KhPI continued its work as a Ukrainian institution of higher learning. In April 1994, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine granted Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute university status and it was renamed the Kharkiv State Polytechnic University (KhSPU). In September 2000, the status of National Technical University has been given to KhSPU, by decree of the President of Ukraine; since then, it has had its current name (NTU “KhPI”). In February 2010, NTU “KhPI” was granted the status of Autonomous Research National University by decree of the Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers.

The relations are developed very dynamically and effectively with the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg (Germany), University of Klagenfurt (Austria), Central Lyon Higher Senior School (France), University of Miskolc (Hungary), Humboldt University of Berlin (Germany), Dresden University of Technology (Germany), Cracow University of Technology and The Warsaw University of Technology (Poland), Sofia University St. Kliment Ohridski (Bulgaria), Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) (Germany), etc.
An important milestone in the life of the University was the signing of Magna Charta Universitatum by NTU “KhPI” in the ancient Institution of Higher Education in Europe University of Bologna (Italy) in September 2005. In March 2007 NTU “KhPI” became a full individual member of the European Association of Universities. On March 10, 2009, the University became a full member of the Eurasia Association of Universities. Starting from November 2009 NTU “KhPI” has been a member of The Black Sea Universities Network. These events were one more step toward the integration of the University into the common European and International Educational Space.
