Burlayenko V.M. graduated in 1993 from the Faculty of Engineering and Physics at KhPI (now National Technical University “KhPI”), majoring in “Dynamics and Strength of Machines” with a qualification as a “Mechanic-Researcher-Engineer” (diploma with honors). In 1999, he successfully defended his doctoral thesis on the topic “Development of a method for calculating the creep and long-term strength of thin-walled structural elements under cyclic loading” under the supervision of Professor Vasyl Yevdokymovych Breslavskyi and Professor Oleg Kostyantynovych Morachkovskyi at the specialized Academic Council of the A.N. Podgorny Institute for Mechanical Engineering Problems of NAS of Ukraine (IPMash) with a qualification 01.02.04 – Solid Mechanics. In recognition of his expertise, Burlayenko V.M. was conferred the academic title of associate professor at the Department of Applied Mathematics of the National Technical University “KhPI” in 2005.

V.M. Burlayenko commenced his teaching career at the department in 1999, following the completion of his postgraduate studies and the defense of his doctoral thesis. Initially, V.M. Burlayenko served as an assistant at the department, subsequently advancing to the role of senior teacher. Since 2002, he has held the position of associate professor at the department. In 2019, he was appointed as a professor within the department and later took on the responsibilities of head of the department.

From 1999 to 2003, V.M. Burlayenko was honored twice with scholarships from the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine for young scientists. In 2000 and 2019, he was granted scholarships from the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) for two- and three-month internships at German universities, respectively. Additionally, he achieved the distinction of being selected as a recipient of the INTAS-Young program award (International Association for the Promotion of Cooperation with Scientists from the CIS countries) for a year-long research internship in 2003. Burlayenko also contributed as a researcher to two international scientific projects funded by the Sixth (FP6) and Seventh (FP7) Framework Programs of the European Union in 2008 and 2010, respectively. In 2015 and 2019, he received research grants from the German Research Society (DFG) for three-month research stints at  Magdeburg Otto von Guericke University, Germany. Moreover, he participated in a 10-month academic visit through the international Erasmus Mundus ACTIVE post-doc exchange program to the University of Southampton, England, from 2015 to 2016.

Burlayenko V.M. is a member of the Scientific Council of the National Research Fund of Ukraine and a member of the Scientific Expert of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine for consideration of scientific (scientific and technical) works submitted for participation in competitions of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine.

The scientific interests of Burlayenko V.M. encompass various areas of mechanics, including nonlinear creep and fracture mechanics, nonlinear dynamics considering contact and friction, structural analysis of composite materials, numerical methods, and the finite element method. He has authored more than 90 scientific publications, including international publications, as well as co-authored 4 educational and methodological manuals. Burlayenko actively engages in international scientific conferences and seminars. He is a member of several international scientific societies, including the German Society of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics (GAMM), as well as the European Society of Mechanics (EUROMECH).
