Aviation Engineering

The students who see their future within the aviation domain learn how principles of aerodynamics works, which materials aircraft are made of, and how those materials and structures behave during flight. You will learn how to design aviation equipment, develop, research, and improve aircraft systems, identify and address functionality and reliability issues. Consequently, you will be prepared for careers as aircraft and aircraft systems designers, aviation technicians/engineers, and air transport specialists/consultants.

Become an aviation engineer


This study programme has been developed taking into account the recommendations of the Public Enterprise Transport Competence Authority and aviation companies. Guest lecturers – practitioners from aviation companies – will help the students navigate in the field by introducing them to the latest technologies and design specifics used in aviation.

Work with advanced equipment


You will work with the specialized testing equipment in the University’s laboratories, such as the wind tunnel, non-destructive testing equipment, and the automated design system for aircraft or aircraft systems and structures.

You’ll also have the chance to work with the latest aircraft maintenance equipment in collaboration with the aviation companies AB Sportinė aviacija ir Ko, AB FL Technics, UAB Helisota, UAB Aviabaltika, Kaunas Aircraft Maintenance Services base of Ryanair, and others.

Endless development opportunities


The Aviation Engineering study programme is intended for forward-thinking and ambitious students. Some of them have nurtured the dream of pursuing a career in aviation from a young age, which means the learning environment will be both challenging and motivating for the students. You will have the opportunity to join the student projects such as the Flying Aerodynamics Laboratory, the “Kėkštas” single-seater helicopter, the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle and others, where you will expand your knowledge, enhance your skills, and perhaps even work on your own individual project.

Theory put into practice


Upon graduation, you will be ready to start your career in aviation equipment design, development, research, and upgrading of aircraft systems, and addressing the functionality and reliability issues. You will be equipped with the skills necessary to work at aircraft design, manufacturing, and repair companies and aviation companies.

Employers already on the lookout for talents


The shortage of aviation engineers and aircraft maintenance technicians is a growing challenge not only in Lithuania, but also globally, and you can expect a lot of job offers upon completing your studies. You will also have outstanding opportunities for an international career as mechanical and design engineers, aviation engineers and specialists, to executives, quality assurance and training managers at aviation companies.



Your knowledge and practical skills will enable you to:

–     identify and analyze engineering issues in the field of aviation and find the solutions by selecting appropriate methods and equipment;

–     design aircraft and the systems and components that support aircraft operation, and prepare technical documentation;

–     address the issues of functionality, reliability, and safety of aircraft and aircraft systems;

–     work independently and as part of a multi-skilled team, interact with/outside the engineering community at national and international level;

–     develop and improve aircraft and aircraft systems by participating in upgrade projects and production.


You may become

The creatives who design cutting-edge, safe aircraft and the systems and components that support aircraft operation, by integrating design methodology, theory of motion and production technologies, and automated design and computer-aided analysis methods.

Professionals who ensure the functionality, reliability, and safe operation of aircraft mechanical and electronic systems in accordance with quality and process standards governing aircraft maintenance and using performance assessment/maintenance methodologies.

Aviation professionals who investigate and analyze air transport issues/challenges and propose/adopt solutions in line with safety, economic and environmental requirements by assessing and leveraging potential risks and legal aspects.

Lecturer at the Department of Transport Engineering, PhD student


At school, I had a strong inclination towards physics and mathematics, and I particularly enjoyed solving physical problems, which is why I knew I was drawn to studying engineering. A big part of engineering is just creative problem solving using the mathematical 'toolbox' you have in your head. Aviation and aeroplanes have fascinated me since I was a kid, so I decided to go into aviation engineering. The fact that there was a lot of support for this choice in my environment helped me decide, as the speciality is really in demand.
