All automobile and highway institutes have day and evening divisions and the Siberian Institute has a correspondence division; the Kharkov Institute, in Kamenets-Podol’sk, Khmel’nitsk Oblast, has a faculty of general technology. The length of study in the institutes is five to six years, depending on the form of study.
