Working in the company as a designer and creating my brand “VP Code”, I highly appreciate technological knowledge and analytical thinking, acquired during the studies. I believe that in order to achieve success in the clothing industry we have to combine creativity, engineering and entrepreneurship. Having the necessary technological knowledge base, I know that I can create design successfully.
People make studies highly valuable. I was very fortunate that I met exceptionally talented, professional and, most importantly, good-natured people during the studies. It is invaluable experience. Studies are like a kind of club, where people support each other. Pursuing my professional career, I met many specialists who have graduated from the KTU. The funniest thing is that university always brings us together, helps us to communicate, and opens doors to new opportunities

It’s good to know that we are not only the social partners of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Design of KTU, but also the employers who employ the graduates of Fashion Engineering every year. The newly hired graduates easily adapt in our company by making use of the opportunity to apply and improve competences acquired during the studies. The advanced thinking (i.e. the perception of processes as a whole and every process separately) helps the young people to successfully engage in the company’s activity
