History reference

On October 1, 1930, the Agro-Pedagogical Institute of the People's Commissariat of Education of the BSSR with a two-year term of study was opened in Gomel. The institute included two departments:

  • Physical and Technical Department (graduates of this department also taught mathematics);
  • Chemical and Biological Department.

The first enrollment was 100 people, half of whom went to the Physical and Technical Department. Applicants with secondary education were admitted without entrance exams. Classes began on October 2, 1930. The institute was located in different rooms, Physics and Technology Department was in Lange Street. The first graduation was in 1932, in 1933 the institute was reorganized into Gomel Pedagogical Institute with a four-year term of study, which included the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics. First, this faculty was headed by Alekhnovich Ya.S., and then until 1936 the faculty was headed by A. Sternov, from October 1936 the leadership of the faculty was entrusted to Glatenka V.D., who was the head of the faculty until 1963.

On May 1, 1969, Gomel State Pedagogical Institute was transformed into Gomel State University. On the basis of the Physics and Mathematics Faculty of Pedagogical Institute, the Physics Faculty and the Mechanics and Mathematics Faculty were formed. Among the first graduates of the Mechanics and Mathematics Faculty there were our teachers: Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Professor M. Selkin and PhD in Physics and Mathematics, associate professor Kharlamova V.I. In the future many graduates of Gomel University became PhDs and doctors of sciences. In September 1977, the Mechanics and Mathematics Faculty was renamed the Faculty of Mathematics.

Faculty today
