The Telecommunications Department is in a close professional relationship with kindred subdivisions of the leading technic educational and scientific establishments of Ukraine and abroad, in particular with the A. S. Popov Odessa national Academy of communications, Kharkiv National University of Radioelectronics (KNURE), the National Technical University of Ukraine “Kyiv Polytechnic Institute, the State University of Information and Communication Technologies, the Vienna University of Technology, the Warsaw University of Technology and the Dresden University of Technology.
Six educational laboratories are currently operating at the Department which are equipped with the modern telecommunicational and informational devises and systems, therefore the research laboratories NDL-109 are successfully running in the Department structure and the local academy CISCO; the equipment for educational purposes was placed in the laboratory of “Ruling complexes of TC-systems” and the certification of the experts according to the program СISСО ССNА (network system administrators) is also organized.
