Central Ukrainian National Technical University has been developing from Yelisavetgrad High Real State School which was found in 1870. As a university, we began our history from Zinoviev Evening Institute of Agricultural Machinery which was established in 1929. There were several reorganizations: in 1956 it was a department of evening studies, in 1962 it was a branch of Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute and in 1967 it was Kirovohrad Institute of Agricultural Machinery. Based on the latter, in 1998 Kirovohrad State Technical University (KSTU) was created which was accredited at the highest IV level. In 2004, the university got the status of a national university. According to the order of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine No. 1291 dated October 27, 2016, Kirovohrad National Technical University was renamed as Central Ukrainian National Technical University.
