Master's thesis defense in 2024.

In light of the recent events at the university and in the surrounding areas, I would like to note that the university is alive and well and continues to work. Recently, the Department 407 held master's thesis defenses. The students proved themselves to be the best, covering in their research both the most pressing problems of our country and the most pressing issues for the whole world. Here is a summarized list of the research areas submitted for defense:


- predicting the negative effects of mudflows;

- use of GIS in land inventory;

- determining the areas of storm surges;

- creation of digital twins in the structure of the WEB-application;

- determination of coverage by shelter zones depending on the type of ballistic missiles;

- modeling the development of recreational facilities;

- solving geomarketing problems;

- modeling the consequences of fires;

- analysis of the coverage of electric vehicle charging stations;

- monitoring of emergencies related to flooding;

- monitoring of ocean pollution by plastic waste;

- building mapping models using artificial intelligence;

- use of GIS technologies in planning the areas of reconstruction of Kharkiv;

- assessment of damage caused by military operations based on remote sensing data;

- change of logistics in the conditions of war;

- assessment of the possible negative consequences of the enemy's use of a tactical nuclear strike;

- determining the trend of changes in the ecological state of water bodies in the Kherson region; determining the condition of forest plantations based on remote sensing data;

- assessment of the possibilities of using rivers as an alternative to destroyed roads;

- methodology of forming an educational network of the territorial community using GIS technologies;

- use of remote sensing data to select a land plot for the construction of sanatorium and rehabilitation centers.


I would like to thank the newly minted masters for the time we spent together, to say that the department is 100% confident in them and to wish them success in all areas of their lives in the future, harmony, and pleasant excitement and emotions, not from explosions and news reports as it was the last two years. You have forever become a part of the big KAI family. Remember this and that you are always welcome here. We are also proud that our university and department will be represented by people like you, so may you be blessed with good fortune and everything will be fine. We wish you inspiration and take care of yourself!


From November 30 to December 2, 2021, the International Business Convention "Aerospace & Defense. Meetings Torino", which took place in Turin (Italy). The forum was attended by representatives of various companies and manufacturers of the aerospace and defense industry. Many models of unmanned aerial vehicles, space probes, virtual reality systems, etc. were presented. Representatives of the department had the opportunity to meet, establish business relations and discuss new projects in the field of remote sensing of the Earth and GIS technologies. Such conventions are aimed at establishing ties between government, business and science. In parallel, conferences were held, where leading specialists in the aerospace industry, as well as representatives of the European Parliament, spoke. In total, more than 250 companies from more than 25 countries of Europe, Africa, North and South America, Asia and Ukraine took part in the convention.

Professor of the department Butenko O. S. (D.Sc., Prof.), head café Gorelyk S.I. (Ph.D., associate professor), associate professor of the department Krasovska I.H. (Ph.D., Associate Professor) attended the convention on behalf of Khai National University and the Department of Geoinformation Technologies and Space Earth Monitoring in order to update knowledge in the field of the aerospace industry and maintain the department's connection with leading companies developing GIS technologies.

GIS day 2019!

On the November 13, the Department of Geoinformation Technology and Earth Space Monitoring celebrated the International GIS Day, which was attended by representatives of universities and organizations that are good friends of the department.

Students of our university and other universities of Kharkov gave a presentation on scientific achievements in the field of GIS and spoke about new trends in modern geoinformation technologies.

Our holiday was not only official but also entertaining. The students of the department presented creative videos about their fun life and difficult studying at the university. Traditionally, еach academic group had a chance to express themselves in the culinary competition. Totally, this year were 7 unusual skillful and creative cakes onon the "GIS" thematics were presented. None of the participants were left with a bad mood. Certificates with special design will remind our students about the unforgettable GIS-2019 holiday!

The Open Day at KhAI

Gorelik S.I. (Acting Head of the Department) explained to schoolchildren and their parents the main directions of specialties.Applicants had the opportunity to consult the graduate works of our graduates to see the awards of the department and its students and to understend for themselves a special feature of the  training programme in the department. The acting head said that at the moment GIS was super modern and one of the most popular areas in the IT field, the labor market was being transformed into international standards which meant that knowledge of foreign languages was compulsory, in our case, English. 


INTERGEO 2018 is the leading international exhibition of geodesy, GIS and land management with 531 exhibitors from 37 countries, more than 18,000 visitors from more than 100 countries and 1,300 delegates to the international conference. The focus was on digitization and innovation which it introduced from the point of view of BIM, virtual and augmented reality, unmanned aerial vehicles and smart cities.

From October 15 to October 19 in Frankfurt am Main, a group of teachers from the Department of Geoinformation Technologies and Space Monitoring of the Earth which included Associate Professor Adreyev Sergey Mikhailovich and Associate Professor Krasovskaya Inessa Grigorevna attended the INTERGEO 2018 conference to follow the latest trends in the development of GIS technologies , the latest surveying equipment; evaluate modern methods of remote sensing of the Earth are available on the market and expand the horizons of cooperation with foreign representatives of leading companies in the field of GIS
