The Ukrainian postsecondary education system is larger than most of its Western European counterparts. At first glance, this statistic might be difficult to believe given the economic differences between Ukraine and the West. However, the explanation is quite simple.
The former Soviet Union concentrated a high percentage of technical institutions in Ukraine, and today Ukraine benefits from this bygone era. Due to the many technical universities, Ukraine has one of the highest percentages of engineers per capita in the world among its population. The recent restructuring of many of these institutions into more IT-based curriculum will continue to propel Ukraine past many of its peers in the fields of technology and science.
