The Department of "Chemical technology" was founded in 1969. The founder of the Department doctor of chemical Sciences, Professor O. G. Tarakanov-Sorich. In different years the chair was headed by candidate of chemical Sciences, associate Professor p. A. Okunev, doctor of technical Sciences, Professor A. D. Mitrofanov, candidate of technical Sciences, associate Professor E. V. Ermolaeva. Currently, head of the Department – doctor of technical Sciences, Professor Yuri Terentyevich Panov.

The teaching staff of the Department: 4 professors, 3 associate professors, 1 senior lecturer.

The Department trains bachelors and masters in the areas of "Chemical technology", "Energy and resource - saving processes in chemical technology, petrochemistry and biotechnology" in full-time and correspondence forms of training. The Department has a postgraduate course.

International activity


The Department of chemical technologies conducts active and fruitful international activities aimed at developing and strengthening ties with leading foreign universities in the field of educational activities and research.

In 2010, the Department participated in the international program TEMPUS. Within the framework of this program, in cooperation with the leading European universities – University of Genoa (Italy), Slovak University of technology (Bratislava), University of London (Great Britain) – and with the participation of a number of Russian universities, an educational program for training masters in water resources management was developed. Undergraduate students of the Department were trained abroad, and after graduation, defending the final work in the presence of representatives of the European Commission, received diplomas not only VlSU, but also the University of Genoa (Italy).

In 2013, the Department won another project under the same TEMPUS program:"lifelong learning and master's degree in innovative technologies for energy saving and environmental control in Russian universities with the participation of employers". In this project, among the foreign partners of the Department were the University of Genoa (Italy), Silesian University of technology (Katowice, Poland), University of Alicante (Spain). The Department has repeatedly hosted foreign delegations within the framework of this project. Teachers of European universities lectured and conducted seminars for students and teachers of the Department, which contributed to a significant increase in the level of quality training.

Within the framework of both programs, sets of manuals were prepared for undergraduates studying in the areas of "Chemical technology", "Energy and resource - saving processes in chemical technology, petrochemistry and biotechnology".

Currently, the Department is actively working to find and develop new contacts and comprehensive cooperation with foreign universities. To this end, students and teachers annually participate in international conferences and forums both in Russia and abroad.
