Repnina Varvara Alekseevna Institute of Noble Maidens in Poltava became the first among the provincial cities of the Russian autocratic empire a secondary educational institution of closed type for women nobles.

In the 1930s, Poltava became a union training center for agricultural engineers in the system of newly created higher educational institutions designed to provide the rapidly growing need for engineering and construction personnel for the huge construction site that became the whole of the USSR.

In accordance with the resolution of the Government of the USSR of 23 July 1930 under No. 237 on the establishment of new higher education institutions, the Commissar of Land Affairs of the Ukrainian Government issued an order on the formation of the Poltava Institute of Agricultural Construction on 19 August 1930. Rich in agricultural traditions and achievements Poltava Region since 1920 has been training in the Agricultural Institute (with the Faculty of Agricultural Engineering) for the village. It was the decision of the Poltava City Council that transferred the building of the former Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary - May Day Prospect, No. 24 (central three-storey building and two lateral one-storey buildings not connected to the central building), which became the location of the new higher educational institution.
