    Volodymyr Dahl East Ukrainian National University started its development on March 27, 1920 as the first institution of Luhansk to prepare engineers for machine-building enterprises. It had two faculties (machine-building and electro-technical) with 20 teachers and 132 students. During the World War II (1939-1945), the University was evacuated to Omsk. After returning to Luhansk, the University renewed almost from scratch. By 1960, it had been reorganized several times and that year it became Luhansk Machine-Building Institute.

    On May 8, 1993, East Ukrainian State University was created based on Luhansk Machine-Building Institute and several other educational establishments of Luhansk and Luhansk oblast by Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.

    Unfortunately, in 2014 the University with the majority of teaching staff and students had to move to Severodonetsk, Luhansk oblast due to the military actions in Luhansk. Based on its separate structural unit (Technological Institute) the educational process was renewed.
