Faculty of construction

Historical Overview on Faculty

Thedeans of Technical Faculty of Yerevan State University from 1921 to 1930 which givesrise to construction specialty, in particular engineering and hydraulic engineeringspecialty were Davit Zavrikyan (from October, 1921 to September, 1922), GrigorSharmazanyan (from September, 1922 to December, 1923), ZebetKhojanetyan (from January to September, 1924), NikoghayosBuniatyan (from September, 1924 to August, 1925), Arshak Tonyan (from September, 1925 to August, 1929) and HovhannesNavakatikyan (from January 1929 to August 1930).

The deans of Hydraulic Engineering Facultywere Vagharshak Hovsepyan (1952-1954) and TorgomKhachatryan (1954-1959).

In 1962 after death of AvetikTer-Israyelyanthe dean of Construction Faculty was Grigor Petrosyan. In May 1972 he was replaced by GurgenAbovyan. In 1972Architecture/Construction and Engineering/Construction Faculties were again created on the basis of Construction Faculty. The Architecture/Construction Faculty included the specialties of Architecture, Industrial and Civil Engineering, Manufacturing of Constructional Products and Structures, Economics and Construction Organizationand the Engineering/Construction Faculty in turn included the specialties of Hydraulic Engineering Construction of Hydroelectric Power Plants and River Structures, Thermo-Gas Supply and Ventilation, Water Supply and Sewerage, Bridges and Tunnels and Automobile Roads.

 

   

GurgenAbovyan was elected as a dean of Architecture/Construction Faculty and MartunPoghosyan– as a dean of Engineering/Construction Faculty.

In 1980 GurgenAbovyan was replaced by Armen Aghalyan (1980-1989), then the deans were  Robert Avetisyan (1990-1996), HrantPoghosyan (1996-2008) and PetrosHambardzumyan (from 2008-present).

In addition to the above mentioned faculties and together with them at different times other faculties were the following: Road: Dean - Emanuel Khudabashyan (1938),Evening Construction: Dean - Gevorg Hakobyan (1956-1977), Correspondence Construction: Dean - Rudolf Yepremyan (1989-1990), (1996-2013), Construction Technology: Dean - Albert Asiryan (1993-2010) and Transport Construction: Dean - Robert Azoyan (1993-2011).

In 2013all construction specialties were united into general Construction Department,now Construction Faculty, the dean of which is David Grigoryan.

Todaythe following specialties are included in the Construction Faculty:“Construction, Manufacturing of Constructional Products and Building Structures”, “Building Design”, “Construction and Operation of Water Systems”,“Construction,Management and Operation of Transport Routes and Vehicles” and“Cadastre and Applied Geodesy”.The faculty consists of the following chairs: Manufacturing Technology of Constructional Materials; Products andStructures; Structural Mechanics; Building Structures; Technology and Organization of Construction Industry; Water Systems,Hydraulic Engineering and Hydroelectric Power Plant; Automobile Roads; Railways, Bridges and Tunnels; Engineering Geodesy.

Startingfrom 1921 the number of graduates of Construction Faculty is more than 20000. The graduates of Construction Faculty actively participate in large-scale design, construction and operation works of reservoirs, water pipelines, dams, subway, bridges and tunnels, roads, residential, civil and industrial buildings, Hydroelectric Power Plant, Thermal Power Plant,Nuclear Power Plantand other special buildings not only in Armenia but also beyond its borders. Our graduates hold senior positions in scientific-research, design and construction companies, ministries, have higher associate professor’s and professor’sdegrees, are full membersof National Academy of Sciences of Armenia and other countries,are members of creative and professional associations. Many of our graduates are participants and veterans of not only the Great Patriotic War, but also Artsakh Liberation War. Thanks to the effortsof our graduates the restoration of Gyumri, the construction of Northern Avenue in Yerevan, construction of roads,water supply and drainage systems of the airportin Artsakh comes to an end.Currently the construction of the highway connecting the North and South is underway.

In short, new buildings are constructed everywhere and our graduates are in demand.

For traininghighly qualified specialists the maximumfavorable conditions are created in the construction faculty.

84 lecturers,including 24 doctors of science(2 academicians of RA Academy of Sciences), 35 candidates of scienceare teaching in 8 professional chairs.Three rectors of the university over the last years got basic and professional education in the construction faculty.

Now682students are taught in the construction faculty in five specialties(bachelor’s degree: 597, master’s degree: 85), moreover, 302 students are studying by correspondence courses. 24 postgraduates are taught in postgraduate courses (12 of whom are applicants), we have 6 doctoral candidates, most of them receivepension.

Teachingand methodological literature, scientific articles, monographs are regularly published and printed in the faculty, certificates are received for inventions and patents, candidate and doctoral thesesare defended.

The lecturers and students actively participate in local and international scientific-practical symposiums, conferences, contests, etc.Best of them became laureates of state and presidential awards, received medals and honorary titles and are awarded with governmental honor certificates.

Teaching in the faculty is conducted not only in Armenian, but also in English and Russian languages. Citizens of Islamic Republic of Iran, Syria, India, China, Russian Federation and Georgia are studying in the faculty.

According to the contracts and agreements signed between the university and foreign HEIs, the facultyhas particularly established close relationshipswith Rostov State Construction University (RF) and University of Technologies of Częstochowa(Poland) in educational processwhich is expressed by mutual visits of students and lecturers, working meetings, exchange programs of students and lecturers.

From 2014 the students of facultyparticipatein international scholarship programof EU-funded Erasmus-Mundus Infitity student and faculty exchanges: 2 students are studying in Polytechnic Institute of Leiria in Portugal.

Our faculty graduates are always in demand. Today, they are expectedin all institutions of the Republic, includingArtsakh, Gyumri and North-South Highway construction.
