Formation. The dynamic development of NMU contributed to the formation in Ukraine of engineering education and the creation of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine scientific world-class schools. The University has recognized scientists, academics, A.N. Dinnik, L.V. Pisarzhevsky, N.S. Polyakov, A.I. Brodsky, M.M. Fedorov, M.M. Protodyakonov, A.M. Terpigorev, M.A. Pavlov, L.D. Shevyakov, V.P. Nikitin, V.N. Poturayev, V.A. Lazarian. In the development of science have made a significant contribution to members of the Academy of Sciences, G.G. Pivnyak, A.Z. Shirokov, K.F. Tyapkin, D.P. Konovalov F.A. Abramov, E.I. Efremov, A.F. Bulat. Academician of NAS of Ukraine, G.G. Pivnyak is the rector of NVU. NMU today – a modern scientific and educational center, which is characterized by fundamental and systematic knowledge, communication education, science and innovation in a single complex, a high level of international relations. Organizational activities of the university aims to create such innovative structures: a technology transfer center for the commercialization of intellectual property rights, training, research and production facilities, scientific and educational centers, sharing unique laboratory equipment Science Park.
Structure. The composition of the NMU are: Institute of Economics, Institute of Power Engineering, 9 full-time faculty teaching, the Institute of Extramural and Distance Learning, eksternatura, graduate and doctoral studies, interdisciplinary Institute for Lifelong Learning, Institute of Humanitarian issues that Pavlogradskij Dokuchasvsky Mining College Marganetsk Mountain College, Dnepropetrovsk Road Transport College. The University has developed a research part, publishing complex library with nearly 2 million teaching and geodesic polygon, a museum of university history, geological and mineralogical museum, a network of linguistic centers.
Potential. Modern National Mining University focuses its activities on providing innovative development of Ukraine's economy through the development of high technology efficient use of natural resources. To do this, the NSU is accented attention on the following activities in the field of science: the development of innovation infrastructure of the university; innovation and introduction of the learning process and new technologies, devices and systems, improving quality and efficiency of basic research and applied research, training of scientific and pedagogical highly qualified personnel. Priority activities in the field of science is: the development of innovation infrastructure of the university; introduction of the learning process and new technologies, devices and systems, improving quality and efficiency of basic research and applied research, training of scientific and pedagogical personnel.
