Mechanical engineering is possibly the oldest branch of engineering science. If not for mechanical engineers, the industrial revolution would not have taken place, and we would probably still be producing everything using our own two hands. Mechanical engineers creatively solve future engineering problems by developing new and improving existing technologies used in Machinery and tools, transport and aerospace, power and energy, medical and healthcare, sports and leisure, and other industries. It is an area of science on which the progress of global sustainable economic growth and future industrial prospects depend.
Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest engineering disciplines and therefore provides some of the strongest interdisciplinary opportunities in the engineering profession. KTU’s Mechanical Engineering bachelor’s study program covers the analysis of different materials and technologies used in industry, the fundamentals of machine design, and product development. Its graduates will have the competencies and skills to develop equipment, components, and systems of mechanical nature while using contemporary CAD/CAE systems. These studies have a twin program option within the ECIU network.
Maximum 3 years after high school graduation is eligible.

Investor’s Internationally recognized quality of studies
In 2018, KTU BSc Mechanical Engineering study program was awarded Investor’s Spotlight quality label, established by Investor’s Forum together with the agency Invest Lithuania as proof that it meets the best expectations of international business and industry.
Personalized studies – according your needs
Exceptional possibilities to personalize your studies are provided. Two semesters of alternatives in the Programme allow students of the BSc Mechanical Engineering study program to choose among the following alternatives:
Expanding knowledge in the field of mechanical engineering by selecting studies in one of the proposed specializations
Development of competencies in practical engineering activities through one- or two-semester placements at engineering enterprises
International semester at partner European universities
Specializations for modern industry
By choosing Specialized studies in “Design of Mechanical systems “ or “Robotics Engineering” you will become qualified and competent for carriers in contemporary business and industry. Students can choose the specialization according to their personal needs and motivation.
International Mobility within ECIU consortium
International semester studies at the ECIU universities (University of Twente (Netherlands), Linköping University (Sweden), Monterrey Institute of Technology (Mexico), University of Aveiro (Portugal), University of Stavanger (Norway), Trento university (Italy) according to the program “Minor in Mechanical Engineering” acquiring a certificate are possible.
World-class software and laboratories for studies
Graduates of the Programme will gain competencies and skills to develop equipment, components, and systems of mechanical nature while using contemporary CAD/CAE systems. The main of them used in studies Autodesk Inventor and SolidWorks are among the world’s leading solutions for PC modeling, analysis, and optimization of engineering systems and devices. Besides ANSYS, Comsol Multiphysics, CATIA, MTS TopCam, LS-DYNA, and MSC (Adams, Dytran, Nastran, Patran) are available in computer classes. Educational and research laboratories are equipped with GUNT laboratory stands, 3D prototyping and rapid tooling equipment, measurement equipment including the systems of Japanese corporation Mitutoyo, CNC machines, and many other.
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.
The profession of a mechanical engineer is universal – it is difficult to find an area where competencies in mechanical engineering is not required. The graduates are employed by the companies of machinery and tools industries, road transport and aerospace companies, industries of chemicals and food, wood and textiles other industries.
You will have the competencies to:
To design different machinery, devices, robotized and automated systems
To plan, organize, and control production processes;
To analyse problematic areas of facilities management and adapt modern modelling software for an increase of efficiency of processes;
to implement modern technical control algorithms based on computer modeling programs
– Prepares product sketches and technical and working projects of various levels of difficulty;
– Supervises the projects in terms of their compliance with technical tasks, requirements of standards, safe work, and production technology;
– Performs technical calculations and prepares technical documentation. Uses CAD (computer-aided design AUTODESK INVENTOR and SOLIDWORKS) systems;
– Manages a group of technicians and drawers preparing those projects.
– Organises acquisition and introduction of normative technical production documents and standards;
– Prepares and finalises usage rates for materials and raw materials, finalises technological regulations and their amendments;
– Introduces new technological processes and production technologies, introduces the production of new products;
– Performs designing work for computerized machinery;
– Controls technological discipline and quality in the produced products;
– Develops and introduce new production methods.
– Forecasts, organises, and controls production activities;
– Guarantees efficient use of equipment, materials, and proper recruitment of employees;
– Assesses equipment’s capacity and efficiency, and provides recommendations for machinery’s technical maintenance and replacement of equipment.
– Researches or tests materials or products for assessment of their quality;
– Determines if the products’ parameters comply with the standard or requirements of normative documents;
– Guarantees that products comply with their quality requirements established in the standards or other normative documents.
