Mechanical Engineering

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 medical, healthcare, sports and leisure, transporting and other industries. It is an area of science on which the progress of global economic development and the 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 programme covers the analysis of different materials and technologies used in industry, the fundamentals of machine design and product development. Its graduates will have competences and skills to develop equipment, components and systems of mechanical nature while using contemporary CAD/CAE systems. These studies have a twin programme option within the ECIU network.

In 2018, KTU BSc Mechanical Engineering study programme was awarded Investor’s Spotlight quality label, established by Investor’s Forum together with the agency Invest Lithuania. Investor’s Spotlight is awarded to those study programmes which best meet the expectations of the business and industry.

According to their interests, the students of BSc Mechanical Engineering study programme may choose among the following alternatives:

  • Expanding knowledge in the field of mechanical engineering
  • Development of competencies in practical engineering activities through one- or two-semester placements at engineering enterprises
  • International semester at partner European universities
