Brief history of  the  department

          The department of   "Instrumentation engineering " was created in accordance with the order of the Lutsk Industrial Institute No. 141, December 27, 1995 "About organizational and structural changes in the institute" separated from the graduate department "Metal-cutting machine tools and systems" as a separate subdivision.

The  department  consisted of 6 teachers and 3 laboratory assistants. It was located in the building   2 in the street  Potebni, 56. The total area of ​​all laboratories was more than 500 square metres.

           In 1990, the speciality " Instrumentation engineering" was licensed. The training of special subjects  was provided by the teachers of the department "Metal-cutting machine tools and tools". In 1995, the section "Instrument-making" at the department "Metal-cutting machine tools and tools"   carried out the first graduation of specialists in the speciality " Instrumentation engineering."

In 1996, the Department of   Instrumentation engineering  carried out the first graduation   of mechanical engineers in the field of "  Instrumentation engineering     ".

           In connection with the reorganization of higher education in 1997, the new curriculum for a 3-step form of education (bachelor-specialist-master) was revised and approved and the name of the speciality was changed to "Fine Mechanics Devices".

In 2003, the department  licensed  the speciality "Medical devices and systems" and made the first set of students to the energy-saving faculty.

           At present, the teaching process at the department is provided by 15 teachers, among them   there is one doctor of sciences, a professor, and 14 candidates of sciences, 8 of them have a rank of associate professor.

In 2010, the speciality "Metrology and Information-Measurement Technologies" was opened and the first set of students was implemented. In 2015, the first graduation of specialists in this speciality was conducted at the     Department of  Instrumentation engineering  of the  Faculty of Ecology.
