The year 1982 became remarkable for the educational establishment because the College of Municipal Construction moved into the new modern educational building in Pasichna St. It allowed to strengthen radically its training base, open a number of new specialties, which significantly affected the quality of knowledge of its graduates. Many of them are now heading a large enterprises in the western region.
