Odessa State Environmental University is the object of state property and is an affiliated body of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine. The University was founded on 1 May 1932 in the city of Kharkiv, the former capital of Ukraine, as the Kharkiv Engineering Hydrometeorological Institute. In July 1944 by the Decree of the Soviet Government the Institute was transferred to Odessa. For 80 years of its existence the higher educational establishment has been developing two basic trends. On the one part, a trend associated with training of engineers in the field of Hydrometeorology and Monitoring of the Environment which has been developed traditionally. On the other part, the specific character of the Hydrometeorological trend in training of specialists provided a highly qualified staff, teaching methods and scientific research basis for organizing a system of environmental education at the University.
