The Kherson Branch ("KB") is a subdivision of the National University of Shipbuilding, which trains students for Bachelor and Specialist degrees. It has a full-time and a part-time department, and carries out scientific research and conducts cultural and educational activities. More than five thousand engineers (shipbuilders, machine builders, programmers and welding specialists) as well as economists have completed their courses here.
The Head of the Branch is the Director, who is appointed by the Rector’s order in consultation with a decision of the General Meeting. Professor, Ph.D. Lomonosov A.V. has been the Director of the Branch since 1987.
KB was originally established as an evening (part-time) department of the higher education institution of shipbuilding but in 1988 it opened its day (full-time) department. For the first two years students had studied in Kherson and then completed their course of study in Mykolaiv. In 1996 it was decided that students could remain in Kherson until graduation.
