The School of Radio Physics was founded in 1952. Corresponding Fellow of the USSR Academy of Sciences, Full Professor D. Rozhanskyi, Kharkiv University faculty member in
1911-1921, and his student A. Slutskin, Academician of the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences and the inventor of the magnetron and the radar, are recognized as the founding fathers of the Kharkiv school of radio physics.
The School of Radio Physics offers 4year bachelor degree programs in Applied Physics and Electronics, specialist degree programs in Radio Physics and Electronics, Physical and Biomedical Electronics, and master degree programs in Radio Physics and Electronics with majors in Theoretical Radio Physics, Quantum Radio Physics, Radiophysical Measurements, Physical and Biomedical Electronics and Complex Information Technologies, UHF Physics, Space Radio Physics, Radio Astronomy, Antennae and Radio Wave Propagation; and also specialist and master degree programs in Biophysics with majors in Molecular Biophysics and Applied Biophysics.
Among the School’s graduates are 25 Laureates of the State Prize for Science and Technology, 4 Academicians and 5 Corresponding Fellows of the Ukrainian National Academy of Sciences, over 100 doctors of sciences, and over 500 candidates of sciences. Some of the School’s graduates now occupy positions of directors and leading specialists in academic and research institutes, manufacturing companies, universities, some are known as prosperous businessmen.
The School enrolls more than 500 undergraduate and graduate students and 25 postgraduates. The academic process involves about 100 lecturers and researchers, including 17 Laureates of the Ukrainian State Prize for Science and Technology. The School’s faculty consists of 40 full-time lecturers, among them 18 full professors, doctors of sciences, and 22 associate professors, candidates of sciences.
The School of Radio Physics also has 5 research laboratories, and a radiophysical observatory. It hosts two specialized councils for conferring doctor’s and candidate’s degrees in Radio Physics; Physical Electronics; Physics of Instruments, Elements, and Systems; Astrophysics and Radio Astronomy; and Biophysics.
