Hydrotechnical construction is an important industry activity involving the development of the World Ocean (seas, oceans, and rivers), the construction of ports, and protection of the coastline from destruction. Functioning of the port zones has a national significance. Ukraine has access to two seas (The Azov and The Black) and one of the largest rivers in the world (The Dnieper), so it is beneficial to obtain the speciality “hydraulic engineer” in Ukrainian higher educational institutions. The graduates have extensive employment opportunities and can work almost in all areas of construction, at ship repair and shipbuilding enterprises, in ports and berths. Those who obtain the master’s degree are involved in research and teaching activities. The students may attend international internships, conferences and seminars.
