The history of the University begins with the formation in 1977 of the Faculty of Agronomy.
Students of the faculty are in our VNZi had to do first. “Make your university (and at the time Sumy branch of Kharkiv Agrarian Institute was named. Biotechnology) with his hands,” – the motto lived first-year students. The first set of students took place in Kharkiv. And to the university opened the doors of its own, and had to learn, and work. And so on September 1 in the native walls “Alma Mater”. But the students build the first dormitory wall. Not only is the development of a parallel profession, a good contribution to their financial situation, but forming position in life: “To be the first to make regarding the future, constantly learn new things.”
Learned well in close quarters, but not mad. Learned from the first day of classes before exams. Many graduates occupy respectable positions and institute still remember those days.
Faculty – a ship. And the course, as it goes depends on the captain. Fourth century captain unchanged Agronomy Faculty was Associate Professor, Head of Department of Plant Protection Mishnov AK So he accepted our faculty. Different times were in the country. Different times were at university. But light on the fate of Dean never had. The same fate as that of the faculty – always first. The first state exams, the first issue of the first graduations, first work on the experimental field. But life changes, managers change, and Dean baton after Anatoly Kirillovich received Kabanets Victor M., further Nagorno Vladimir, and currently manages the department Igor Kovalenko.

Students are trained in specialized laboratories and offices to help obtain skills of chemical analysis, determination of grain, etc.
Educational process and evaluation expertise carried out by the module-rating system. Quality control is carried out using knowledge Komp’yuternyh tests of control and graphic works and settlement, protection of laboratory work and seminars. To improve the level of self-preparation of students for classes using training complexes courses that include lectures, laboratory and practical classes, independent work, packages of tests, topics and examples of term papers, essays, additional training information.
