Seven students with late school disabilities were sampled through the snowball method, and the data were analyzed through Van Manen method, one of the phenomenological methodologies. Five essential themes were derived from the campus life experiences of students with late school disabilities describing as “repeated daily life in the corona pandemic and opposition from surrounding”, “educational environment unfamiliar than expected”, “un-narrowed Digital Gap”, “pleasure from learning”, and “rediscovery of the self that he can do”. The said five essential themes can be understood as a process of “finding the joy of learning and regaining confidence in life”, however, which can also be summarized as “a change that is being recognized” through the analysis of the non-contact campus life experiences of the student with late school disabilities. Although there are still inconveniences in non-face-to-face campus life, it can be understood as a changing process of discovering themselves positively in an unfamiliar nonface- to-face educational environment. Their campus experiences can be described as follows; first of all, it appeared as an irregular, dreary, lonely lives in which there is freedom, but taking responsibilities for it. Through a comfortable home, friends, and living in a comfortable environment, which brought satisfaction in their lives and positive perception as independent students.

It shows that despite steady growth until 2013 and falling after political events in Ukraine, the situation stabilized briefly in 2016, followed by a sharp decline that continues to this day due to a number of global events such as the semiconductor crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic. It is determined that in order to improve the situation in the industry, it is necessary to direct state policy to increase the qualitative and quantitative levels of export potential. Particular attention should be paid to the development of promising global niches in construction, starting with production technology, where you need to focus on sustainable construction, or using software, blockchain technology, the Internet of Things both on and off the construction site, as well as obvious future benefits of investing in drone and robotics technology to do more routine or hazardous work and protect workers from potential risks, and to make full use of high-tech construction technologies and attract foreign investment to re-equip and implement innovative solutions in construction companies. The key factors influencing foreign direct investment and exports in the construction industry are identified, the projection of results as key indicators on which the comprehensive indicator of internationalization of the construction industry depends, allowed to reasonably identify indicators that most affect the index.
