Subjects of the study programme by semesters


Object of creation – consumables, aesthetic products, sketches, and projects
Materials – metal, glass, plastic, ceramics, etc.
Design – aesthetics, style, functionality, and ergonomics
Technical creation – idea generation, modelling, optimisation, design, and visualisation
Design thinking Design solutions of the created or improved products Engineering solutions of a product Process management of the creative-design activities





The link between the engineering science and industrial design

The main tasks of the creation process are to recognize and analyze design features of the newly created or improved products and plan the implementation of their design. This can be achieved only through the general knowledge and skills of engineering and industrial design.


During the studies, theoretical knowledge is put into practice

Students, participating in the creative workshops, propose new ideas for the products of the companies and learn how to properly represent their skills.  Two internships of professional activity are provided in the study program: the first should be performed at the base of Vilnius Academy of Arts and the second should be performed in the Lithuanian engineering companies.


Good knowledge of multidisciplinary product development process

By working in a company, a specialist in industrial design engineering assesses not only the functional, but the aesthetic needs of the new product in the context of competition and market changes; therefore, he can easily adapt to the changing conditions and needs of the industry, business, and society.


High demand for the specialists of industrial design engineering

The analysis of labour supply and cooperation with the social partners shows that there is a high demand for specialists who are able to design and implement ideas of industrial design in the product, as well as understand the characteristics of materials and production.


Advanced and ambitious students choose this study programme

This program is studied by motivated, creative, and advanced students, showing good study results. It ensures a friendly and study-oriented environment, helping to gain the necessary knowledge and skills easily.

Product and service development

Are you interested in creating real products and services while studying? It is now possible to test yourself by getting involved in a product development project (PDP). During the project, you will work in teams, collaborating with KTU researchers and social partners. While solving current, relevant problems you will improve your teamwork, project management, and problem-solving skills, deepen your professional knowledge and expand your career opportunities.



Student’s competences:
-Creation of new products from idea to prototype;
– Visualisation and animation of industrial and consumer products using graphic software;
– Preparation of technical drawings and 3D modelling using CAD systems;
– Engineering analysis of the designed products and optimisation of constructions.

Student’s skills:
– Able to develop engineering design ideas, proposals and solutions;
– Able to define engineering problems related to product development, clarify requirements applied to a product, analyse possible engineering solutions, select and implement the most appropriate one;
– Able to present creative ideas and projects of industrial products using visual and animation technologies;
– Able to design products of attractive design with regards to the properties of materials, production technologies, technical, social, health, safety, environmental, commercial and other defined requirements.



You may become

– Selection of functional and aesthetic materials, production methods and decoration, precise definition and recommendations for production;
– Development of design concepts for industrial, commercial and consumer goods and jewellery;
– Combining of aesthetic aspects and technical, functional, ecological and production requirements.

– Preparation of working drawings according to sketches and technical specifications prepared by engineers and designers;
– Creation of drawings for clothing using computer design and drawing equipment;
– Preparation of the information related to mounting, operation, technical maintenance and repair of equipment.

– Design of devices and products, computers, precision instruments, cameras and projectors – non-electrical elements – and consultations on these issues.

– Preparation of standards for installation, changing, quality control, testing, inspections and maintenance according to the engineering principles and safety rules;
– Analysis of the use of labour force, employees’ timetables and expenses aiming to determine the biggest efficiency of employees and equipment;
– Preparation of technical specifications for production and planning of systems layout.

Postgraduate of the study programme “Integrated Product Design” (KTH Royal Institute of Technology).


Once I got admitted to the KTU study programme “Industrial Design Engineering”, I formed a very good opinion about it, since it offered me convenient scientific environment, active and fun students, as well as good-natured and understanding lecturers. I applied the obtained knowledge of engineering and design successfully during the internship and preparation of the Bachelor thesis. Moreover, I was employed during the internship. I’m glad that I studied this study programme which is intensive and interesting and its job opportunities are very clear
