The history of the development of the Well Drilling Department is presented. The prerequisite for the establishment of the department was the resolution on the introduction of the basics of petroleum geology, drilling operations and chemical technology at Lviv Polytechnic School in 1882. In 1886, two-year preparatory courses in mining and metallurgy were launched at Lviv Polytechnic School. In 1893, the two-year courses were transformed into three-year courses with a focus on oil. In 1897, the Department of Mining was established at Lviv Polytechnic School. In the academic year 1917-1918, the Lviv Polytechnic School (now Lviv Polytechnic National Technical University) founded the Petroleum Department, and in 1922, the Department of Oil Drilling and Production was established. The article describes the periods of formation and development of the department: Lviv period from 1922 to 1941 at Lviv Polytechnic, and from 1944 to 1963 at Lviv Polytechnic Institute.
