An economist’s competitive advantage includes skills in application of mathematic instruments in management. Most of Nobel Prize winners in economics field have received world fame for creating economic-mathematic models.

Engineers (inventors, designers, technologists) take part in creation of new goods, improvement of their quality and consumer characteristics. Application of technological innovations and new progressive materials allows to decrease resources’ consumption and production price. Students of the Department gain knowledge on following subjects: Design engineering and computer graphics, Systems of technologies, Commodity research, Substantiation of engineering decisions, Organization of manufacture etc. A lot of excursions are organized, which allow students to observe high technologies and modern methods of management and manufacture at Kyiv enterprises.
The Department provides students with modern computer facilities (23 working places) and Internet. The multimedia technics is used on the lectures and seminars.
