Lviv (Underground) Ukrainian Higher Polytechnical School
Lviv (Underground) Ukrainian Higher Polytechnical School (Львівська [таємна] українська висока політехнічна школа; Lvivska [taiemna] ukrainska vysoka politekhnichna shkola). An institution of higher education established in 1922–3 at the Lviv (Underground) Ukrainian University. The program consisted of one-year general courses in theoretical subjects, which had to be continued by studies abroad, usually in Danzig (now Gdańsk). There were three departments—general studies, engineering, and forestry—modeled on the Danzig Polytechnic and the Příbram Mining Academy in Czechoslovakia (forestry department). The rector was V. Luchkiv; there were 64 students. In 1925 the school ceased operations in conjunction with the closure of the university.
