From then on, Progresstech Ukraine’s engineers have been engaged in all Boeing Commercial Airplanes programs, including the creation of the newest aircraft.
After four years of close cooperation, Progresstech Ukraine was honored by Boeing for our exceptional performance and high-quality work with the 2017 Performance Excellence Award.
Boeing also added their support to the dual study programs offered by Progresstech Ukraine and Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute (KPI). Projects include the Joint Training Center at KPI; launching a dual Master’s program; establishing new up-to-date aviation specializations, lectures, and workshops for students; retraining and certification for faculty; internships for KPI at the Boeing facilities in Renton and Everett.
