Siuni In 1976, this division was divided into the Department of Road Construction and Operation (Professor V. M. Sidenko) and the Department of Road Construction Materials (Professor H. K. Siuni). In 1987, the Department of Road Construction Materials was merged with the Department of Chemistry. The joint department was headed by Professor N. H. Parkhomenko During this period, the section of road construction materials was managed by the world-renowned scientist, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor B. S. Radovskyi. From 1997 to the present, the Department of Road Construction Materials and Chemistry is headed by Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Volodymyr Mozghovyi.

Since 2002, on the initiative and participation of V. V. Mozghovyi, the department specializes in the training of specialists under the educational program “Technology of construction structures, products and materials” (specialty 192 “Construction and civil engineering”), a scientific research laboratory, educational and methodological support of the educational process, organized educational and production practices, established and business contacts with potential employers for graduates are constantly maintained and developed.

Branches of the department at the State Enterprise “State Road Research Institute named after M.P. Shulhin” (SE “DerzhdorNDI”), State Enterprise “Ukrainian Research and Design Institute of Building Materials and Products (NDIBMV)” and State Enterprise “Road Scientific and Technical Center” (SE “DORCENTR”).

In 2004, the scientific research laboratory “Technology of materials and constructions of transport construction named after Prof. H. K. Siuni.” The laboratory was created to develop and implement the latest scientific achievements in advanced technologies, materials and structures in transport construction. The scientific research laboratory includes the “Testing laboratory of the quality of transport construction materials”, which, according to the results of the audit of the state of measurement systems, meets the requirements of DSTU ISO 10012:2005 (Certificate No. 06-0016 / 2021 dated March 12, 2021).

Since 2017, the department has been training specialists in specialty 183 “Environmental protection technologies” educational program “Environmental protection technologies at gas stations and construction industry enterprises”.
