Welcome to our site!

Rector of the University A.N. Turenko

 Dear friends!

I invite you to become acquainted with one of the leading educational institutions in Ukraine - Kharkiv National Automobile and Highway University (KhNAHU).

Today we train engineers for the automotive and road construction industries at 10 faculties: Automobile, Vehicle Mechatronics, Mechanical, Road Construction, Business and Management, Transportation Systems, Correspondence, Professional Updating and Re-training, Foreign Citizens Training, and Pre-University Training, that includes a two-year regional lyceum-boarding school, Preparatory Departments and Preparatory courses.

Established in 1930 as Kharkov Automobile and Road Institute, our educational institution had always played a significant role in the development of higher education in Ukraine. In 1993 the Institute was awarded the University status by the decree of Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.

Now KhNAHU is a modern educational institution that has a highly-skilled research and teaching staff, is closely linked to industries and cooperates with numerous foreign partners. 

Scientific achievements of the University are known in Ukraine and in many countries of the world thanks to its successful scientific schools headed by prominent scientists.

Great student accommodation and conditions for learning are provided by the personnel of the Campus, Center for Information Technologies, University Libraries, museums, Exhibition Complex, Publishing House, Sector for Administrative activities etc.

The greatest pride of the University is its students. It is for them that we offer the wealth of world knowledge as well as values of science and culture.

Inviting you to visit our website, I hope you will find useful and comprehensive information about the University.
