Galyna Melnychuk completed her undergraduate education in Optical Engineering at Kiev Polytechnic University. In addition, she holds two engineering masters degrees - M.S. in Optical Engineering from Kiev Polytechnic University and M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Mississippi State University. Subsequent involvement in technology commercialization and small business development at MSU stimulated her interest in finances, accounting and business taxations, and she received her third graduate degree - Master of Taxation from the College of Accounting at MSU. Galyna’s work in the Emerging Materials Research Laboratory at MSU involved R&D of semiconductor and nano-electronic materials and devices. This research experience helped her develop a multidisciplinary expertise in science and technology, covering Electrical Engineering, Physics, Materials Science, Chemical Engineering, etc.
Since 2011 Galyna have been administering International Programs at the Bagley College of Engineering. Born and raised overseas, she encouraged Mississippi State University students to gain firsthand knowledge of how engineering is taught and practiced throughout the world.
