Values

Studies

From theoretical basics to practical skills of the development of modern automatic control systems

The studies related to the automatic control and their realising systems are closely associated with mathematics, physics, mechanics, logics, electronics, and information sciences. Knowledge in all of these fields is crucial for the automation specialist who creates and installs safe and effective automatic control systems that facilitate the household and a person’s work activities.

Skills

Good knowledge of the needs and solutions of the industrial automation processes

When working in the industrial company, the student who graduates from the study programme understands the industrial processes, analyses their problematic control fields, finds optimal solutions for the manufacturing automation, designs, and installs modern control systems.

Career

Universal and demanded speciality which provides opportunities for the successful work in various fields of industry

The graduates of the programme have extensive employment opportunities as the industry and service sector becomes more and more modernised and automated not only in Lithuania, but also abroad.

Infrastructure

Studies in modern international level laboratories

Renovated modern laboratories are used in the course of studies, i.e. the international training centres created and supported by such international companies as “Schneider Electric”, “Siemens”, “Allen Bradley”, “Festo”, “Wonderware”, “Phoenix Contact”, etc. International accreditation experts evaluated the laboratories as the best in the Baltic States.

Lectors

The lectures are also delivered by the lecturers-practitioners

In this programme, the lectures are delivered not only by the university lecturers who have extensive research and educational experience, but also by lecturers-practitioners who have considerable industrial experience; the students are provided with an opportunity to participate in workshops and symposiums that are organised by the representatives of global companies; therefore, the students’ knowledge is based not only on the theory, but also on the practice.

Testimonials

Romas Keras

Head of the Team of Baltic States Service and Projects at UAB “Schneider Electric Lietuva”

 

At the moment, irrespective of the field of activity, only the partial processes are automated: whether these are large industrial companies or a household, or a private “intelligent” house, because globally automation is a forever-lasting progress, the active participants of which are the graduates of the Automation and Control study programme who work in the “production” and develop, design, install, and use simple and complex production control or information systems. Whereas the specialist who is able to find a proper solution allowing to save the resources and make work or even life easier, as well as to save time is always valued as a technical specialist or manager. As the companies become increasingly more modern, the industrial processes need such specialists, especially for the industrial companies and the companies acting in the fields related to modern technologies.

Sales Manager at UAB “Klinkmann Lit”

 

I got a job offer and started my career when I was still a second-year student of the Automation and Control study programme and after the completion of my studies I have already had an opportunity to work in several companies. Thus, this programme educates not only a good and attractive automation specialist for the labour market who has necessary practical skills, but also opens wide opportunities for career both in and outside Lithuania. When compared with other universities, namely the students who graduated from the Kaunas University of Technology have advantage in job interviews and labour market due to the acquired competencies. Furthermore, the majority of the graduates work in the fields related to the studies and this helps the companies to grow and become more modern.
