Our history

Vitaliy Sigorskiy

Theoretical Electronics Department was established at the Faculty of Electronic Engineering in 1974 (1994 – Physical & Biomedical Electronics Department; 2017 – Electronic Engineering Department). Training in this speciality included study of general engineering disciplines: physical fundamentals of electronic engineering, semiconductor devices, electron and ion devices, measurements in electronics, basic circuit theory and systems, basic circuitry, microelectronics. Advanced classes were given by different departments according to speciality profile. Such organization of study process closely resembles modern undergraduate-postgraduate multi-level training.

Upon establishment the department was leaded by Professor Vitaliy Sigorskiy. Department's staff initially was collected from departments of technical electronics and electronic devices, namely Assoc. Prof. Vladimir Fesechko, Boris medvedenko, Vladimir Moskaliuk, Sr. Lecturer Anatoliy Chekhlov, Assistant Prof. Victor Zubchuk, Anatoliy Shkuro.

Theoretical Electronics Department provided to Faculty of Electronic Engineering following classes:

  • "Electronic circuits and signals" by Vitaliy Sigorskiy;
  • "Physical fundamentals of electronics" by Vladimir Moskaliuk;
  • "Electronic and ion devices" by Anatoliy Chekhlov;
  • "Semiconductor devices" by Alexander Melnik;
  • Analogue and digital circuitry by Victor Zubchuk, Vladimir Fesechko, Anatoliy Shkuro.

In a short time this group has developed and coordinated main lecture classes, prepared training breadboards, and equipped 5 laboratories.
New classes were supplemented with more than 120 class outlines, study books etc. This work was awarded Ministry of Education #1 prize in 1989 to Vitaliy Sigorskiy, Victor Zubchuk, and Anatoliy Shkure.

The most notable books were:

  1. V. P. Sigorskiy, A. I. Petrenko. "Algorithms for electronic circuits analysis", "Soviet Radio", 1979.

Books Книги "Mathematical tools for the engineer" and "Physical fundamentals of electronic technics" were awarded university's first prize.
In 70-80-th our department was a pioneer in use of technical means of education. This work was organized in the special laboratory, leaded by Anatoliy Lyachovetskiy. Television system was developed and installed in laboratories of the department, which was a predecessor of modern multimedia systems. Multimedia laboratory #412 was the best in the university. Department stuff increased from 7 people in 1974 to 22 in 1997.

Auditorium #412 - best multimedia auditorium of the university. Lecture is given by Vitaliy Sigorkiy.

Department management was aimed to continuous improvement of the staff qualifications. Almost every year there was a PhD defence. Teaching methods were evaluated during mutual attendance and following discussions. This work systematically was performed by dedicated methodical group, leaded by Anatoliy Chekhlov. Department success was tightly related to high standards established by its founder Professor Vitaliy Sigorskiy, who managed the department until 1990.

Professor Sigorskiy presented initiative of general engineering education, unified for all students of the faculty of electronics throughout 3.5 years and providing common background for all specialities. Professor Sigorskiy was leading development of common disciplines programs, supplementary materials and laboratories, these disciplines were aligned with the study of general disciplines. Professor Sigorskiy introduced wide use of technical means in teaching process.

Discussing new concept of common engineering education ( 1984 )

In 1990 the department was headed by Yuriy Sinekop.

Since September 1, 1991 department opened education of "Physical electronics" speciality, which main target was study and modelling of physical phenomena and their use in modern electronics and technology. On September 1, 1993 department opens education on "Biomedical electronics" speciality. Establishment of this education program was dictated by development of scientifically grounded medical technologies, diagnostic systems and medical equipment. Engineers of biomedical profile were employed by number of companies in Kiev. Guided by Professor Sinekop the department developed new education programs in short time.

Both specialities presumed as deep physical and mathematical background, so further specialization such as biomedical electronics, circuit modelling and analysis of microwave devices, modelling and automation of technological processes, submicron solid state devices, macromodelling of integrated circuits.

Multilevel education system with bachelor, engineering and master degrees was introduced at that time. Our department continue to teach shared disciplines to Bachelors of Electronics of the whole faculty of electronics:

  • "Metrology" ( Assoc. Prof. Eugeniy Kleschevnikov ),
  • "Field theory" ( Professor Vladimir Moskaliuk ),
  • "Electronic circuits theory" ( Professor Vitaliy Sigorskiy ),
  • "Vacuum and plasma electronics" ( Sr. Lecturer Anatoliy Chekhlov ),
  • "Solidstate electronics" ( Assoc. Prof. Alexander Melnik ),
  • "Analogue circuits" ( Assoc. Prof. Vladimir Timofeev, Assoc. Prof. Alexander Chaikovskiy ),
  • "Digital circuits" ( Assoc. Prof. Victor Zubchuk ).

Several disciplines were shared by both specialities:

  • "Mathematical physics" ( Assoc. Prof. Vladimir Minakov ),
  • "Signal processing" ( Assoc. Prof. Vladimir Fesechko ),
  • "Physical experiment techniques" ( Assoc. Prof. Eugeniy Kleschevnikov ),
  • "Microwave electronics" ( Professor Eugeniy Belyavskiy),
  • "Microwave circuits" ( Assoc. Prof. Vladimir Timofeev ),
  • "Bioelectrical processes" ( Assoc Prof. Yuriy Prokopenko ).

Leading specialist of the university and medical research centres were involved in teaching:

  • "Biochemistry" ( Professor Yuriy Khmelevskiy),
  • "Biophysics" ( Professor Alexander Chaliy ),
  • "Physiology fundamentals" ( Assoc. Prof. Alexander Muratov ),
  • "Biological object interaction with physical fields" ( Professor Pavel Loshitskiy ),
  • "Information theory basics" ( Professor Vitaliy Artyukhov ),
  • "Methods and means of diagnostics" ( Professor Alexander Kovalenko ).

According to the new directions of research the department was renamed to Physical and Biomedical Electronics department in 1994. Since 1995 number of Bachelor of Electronics graduated:in 1995 - 21 persons,1996 - 43, in 1997 - 49, in 1998 - 56. In 1997 18 people received engineering diploma and 3 people defended Master Of Electronics degree (Tatiana Shovkun, Yuriy Vountesmery, Nikolay Prikhodko), 9 foreign students received Master of Electronics degree in Biomedical Electronics. In 1998 there were 17 graduates with engineering degree and 12 Masters in Physical Electronics.

Design, production, operation and service of medical electronic systems requires knowledge of fundamental disciplines, electronics with fundamentals in biophysics, biochemistry, physiology, and diagnostic. According to such demand new speciality "Physical and Biomedical Electronics" was established in 1997.

Department development was greatly supported by Ukrainian Ministry of Healthcare, National Medical University, Darnitsa district medical office, diagnostic centre on Minskiy district, and Kiev city heathcare office, which established collaboration agreement with the department. Ciy healthcare office participates in teaching organization, supports laboratories equipment, provides practice to undergraduate students, support graduates employment. Помощь в подготовке специалистов, разработке новой техники оказывает проблемная лаборатория медицинской электроники, где внимание уделяется проектированию, изготовлению и испытанию физиотерапевтической и электронно-диагностической аппаратуры, которая используется для традиционных и нетрадиционных методов диагностики и лечения. Кафедрой и проблемной лабораторией разработан прибор для физиотерапии - магнитный стимулятор МС-92. Получен патент и разрешение Министерства охраны здоровья на его производство и использование в медицинских учреждениях Украины. Разработан и внедрен метод хребтодиагностики, и на его основе создан лечебно-диагностический комплекс "ФЕКОТ-12", предназначенный для функционально-диагностической коррекции органов и тканей человека. Он запатентован на Украине, внедрен в Киеве, Ялте, Саках, Раздольном. Автор этой эффективной диагностической и лечебной системы - врач Бугаев В.С.
